    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!

    Hello, so I'm 5/5" and I currently weigh about 143lbs (fluctuating wieght). I went through a lot to get this far. I used to be at 158 but then I starved myself (i know not the right thing to do) but now I want to do it the healthy way. My goal is to get to 135, then 130 lbs. If u could please link me to something that will help me (specific meals and tips) and some good exercise routines, I would grately appreciate it. I exercise really often now but it doesn't seem to be helping (I do 80 stair-ups, 7 reverse crunches, 1 hour speed walk, 5 push-ups, 2 minute planks, captain's chair, and jumping rope within a day)

    Make sure you are watching what you eat. Working out is great, but if you are putting all those calories you burned back in by the wrong food, it's useless. I like the app, My Fitness Pal. You can create a profile just for you and log in everything you eat. Hope this helps:)
