    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!

    WebMD Personal Diet Evaluator

    I've been an off-and-on "dieter" since high school and thought I knew everything about weight loss - WRONG! I just completed the assessment and learned some interesting strategies that I can start today to get healthier.

    Did you discover any new or interesting weight loss information? Are you going to make any diet adjustments based on your evaluation?

    HisangelG responded:
    I cannot get it to go past 75% loaded on my Windows XP. I even left it open, nothing running for an hour. Never budged.
    Haylen_WebMD_Staff replied to HisangelG's response:
    Oh no! I just opened in Firefox browser and Internet Explorer and it paused for a moment on 75% but then booted up.

    I'll pass this along and see what I can discover.

    What browser are you using? (FF, IE, Google Chrome, etc.)
