    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 understand, I am going through the same thing. I have started over so many times. I still won't give up. I am starting again, we can support each other. I really want to lose 30lbs. I start out great, then I go back to old habits. I really need encouragement too!

    What do you "plan" to eat?...I think you know what you should eat...But, do you think about how you're going to make that change?

    "...I just keep going back and it doesn't work..."

    If you don't have a plan, plan to fail. If you're going to "go back", again, maybe it would be wise to have a plan this time?

    My advice to you is to focus all your attention on foods you shouldn't eat. Stop eating, subconsciously, and think about everything you put in your mouth. Hint: if it's oily, fatty, salty or sweet, most likely, its should not go there...
