    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.

    Your focus should indeed be health, above other goals, especially if you are not overweight anymore.

    Treat your body kindly and with respect: feed it healthy foods which are high in nutrients - not too much, but not too little either. Three moderate meals and two healthy snacks (like yogurt, fruit, nuts, boiled eggs, vegetable juice, etc.) would be a good routine.

    Exercise is important too.

    Put your past behind you as much as you can, and focus on living healthy from day to day.

    Good luck.
