    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 have a thyroid disease and its hard for me to loss the weight. Mine is Hypothyroidism and it keeps getting worst as I get older. My doctor said the weight gain as not my fault and that it should come off by itself. What can I do to help it come off a little easier? I also Has Asthma so running is hard for me.

    Do you believe what your doctor said about the weight "coming off by itself"? The majority of American adults are overweight...
    Did the doctor say how long we have to wait?

    Daily, brisk walking for 30 minutes, minimum, will help.
