    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.

    I am in my 60's and have been having problem losing weight. I have learned to chew my food slowly and I get full faster. I have been taking 20 min walks 4 days a week and workout on the bikes 4 days a week. I am about 5 lbs over my age/height/weight limit and having problems loosing tht last 5 lbs. I have problems sleeping and sometimes toss and turn till I eat a bowl of cereal at midnight then I fall asleep. I think that is what is hurting my loosing that last 5 lbs. Can you think of a good way to loose about 5 lbs in 5 months?
