    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!

    Hello everyone.

    I am new to this group and hope to learn much from all of you. Although, I am not a lot overweight...I have been in the past and need to get some control again.

    Also I am looking for online weight loss support as well as celebrating others achievements and triumphs.

    Welcome Jemimah!

    I am reasonably new too. This Friday will be my third 'weigh in.' Keep us posted on your weekly progress. We can cheer you on as you regain control! I am in the same boat. I have to get control ... I started with 39 pounds to lose. I'm now at 35 ... My weigh in day is Friday so we'll see what the end of the weeks leaves me with

    Good luck!

    I have started tracking my food and fitness using WebMD ... I like the way it breaks out your food into the parts, fiber, carbs, protein, etc...allows you to see what you need to work on changing.

    So excited,Thank a lot
