    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!

    I have just recently been placed on HRT (hormone replacement therapy) due to my ovaries being removed. I am a little devastated with all the negative reading I have been doing about weight gain. So, we (my husband is supportive) have decided to adopt a healthier eating and exercising lifestyle. My questions is: For those of you who have done this, how did you start?

    I am planning on methodically going through the kitchen and purging the bad by replacing it with good, preparing snacking foods (like veggies) ahead of time so that they are readily available. Also, we are committing to a walk a day and aerobic exercise. (We are fairly active anyway).

    Any other suggestions that have worked for any of you?
