    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Please join the 50-100 lb weightloss club in congratulating our own Debbie (abnersmom) for reaching her goal weight of 150.
    For those of you who aren't familiar with her that's a 115 lb , all natural, gumption and go for it , non surgical, weightloss.
    We as a group are so proud of her and wish her the very best in striving for maintenance.

    I bet Lil Abner listens to his mom when she tells him to "Eat your vegetables."

    Wow! That's hardcore. The great Ben Hogan once said, "the only way to get really good (at anything) is you got to dig it out of the dirt." I think its safe to say, abnersmom, is a person of considerable substance. Well done and Happy Thanksgiving!

    Thanks for posting this Kim. You know already that I don't believe I would have done it without the ladies on our board.

    Thanks, Brunosbud! The only drawback for Lil Abner is that he can't keep up on our walks anymore (little dog and he's 8 years old now) I take him for about a mile of my walk and then put him back in the house to finish at a faster pace. He's one pampered pouch so don't feel sorry for him. Oh, and he loves green beans and apples. LOL!

    Happy Thanksgiving.

    Ha! "Abner" is your dog, huh?
    Well, Abner meet "Bruno", my 4 year old Welsh Corgi Pembroke walking mate. Debbie, do you at least get some privacy when you go to the bathroom?...I sure hope at least one us of does!

    Well, Brunosbud, Abner suffers from separation anxiety according to my vet. He used to take Prozac, but he is off of that now. So, no, I don't get privacy. He sits outside the shower and whines while I'm in there. He is an 8 year old Poodle and although he is as smart as they come, he can be a royal pain in many ways. Great company though!

    I love Corgis! They have great personalities. Give Bruno a belly rub for me.
