    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 am challenged to make a run again at losing the 10 to 20 pounds I have put on. Would like to take it off and keep it off for a healthier and happier retirement.

    It is about the food not the activity. I found over the last 20 years my activity has only a slight connection to my weight loss. During the winter my activity level is 3 to 4 times a week. During the summer 5 to 6 times a week. Some days during the summer I may workout and shower three times a day. I feel really good about the activity but weight loss at 58 is very slowwwww!!

    So eating healthier consistently is the name of game. Any suggestions, great experiences would be greatly appreciated.
