    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!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Thank you, Annette!

    Are you tired of being judged?...or, watched?...of people thinking you're weak and stupid?
    That's the mentality of a person in a diminished and weakened state of mind and body. People don't judge, watch or think you're weak and stupid. That's what you think when you look in the mirror. That's the penance for letting it slide...for taking the easy way...for feeling sorry for yourself...for giving up on you...

    The process for losing weight is the same for everybody. It's not about drugs. It's not about fad or hormones. It's not about your metabolism or childhood...&, it has nothing to do with willpower, either.

    It's all about your inability to tune out the irrelevant. As Annette says, it's all mental.
    1. Stop the self-directed pity and trash talk...
    2. Do some homework...
    3. Tunnel your vision...
    4. See only the goal...
    5. Then, get the f%#k out of your way and stake what's yours

    And, if you can't find the "motivation", then, become the motivation that others are so desperately looking for.
