    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!

    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Hello! Just a fellow traveler on this w/ journey saying never beat up on yourself! I have come to realize that it is all just that, a journey Battled my body issues and weight issues my whole life like I imagine a lot of us. I had to come to a place when I say positive affermations-(outloud) everyday and I can't tell you what a difference it makes. I NEVER used to buy into anything like that but I'm hear to tell you it works. What the mouth speaks the brain will follow. Just wanted to see if I could help in any way....I know it's hard but you CAN do it!
