    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!

    See Anan,
    if we are starting weight loss regime then we have stick to it !!
    we must have some patience to see the results !!

    As we are losing weight naturally by exercise it will take some time, but we have to stick with the plan and our diet !!

    we will definately get the results !!

    Good luck and keep posting how you're doing! I've been there myself and made it through it. I'm in maintenance mode now. It wasn't easy so don't kid yourself into thinking it will be. Stick with it and think about it as a "lifestyle change" rather than a "diet". That helped me a lot!

    Thanks to all. I started walking around my block yesterday. It is about 3 miles a day with an uphill journey. It takes alot of will power, but I found it. I feel great after I complete it. I am only weighing myself once a week. I will keep you posted. If there is anything that I can help anyone with, let me know. Good luck!!!!
