    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

    A Friday Goodbye

    I am tempted to name names and say how valuable each of you has been on the community and how much I learned from you.

    However, the list would be too long, invariably I would forget someone by name and that would be just messy.

    The thing that I want to say as I head off to a new adventure--YOU are the community, the heart and soul of the community. You each lead every time you post. You welcome, you warn people against crash diets and unproven pills, you show empathy, you share views, you share your lives, and those actions make this community truly wonderful.

    Be good to one another. Welcome the new members. Be gentle with the overwhelmed. Communities belong to the members--that's you. Keep this place great for each other, for the new members that come along, and for me to visit. That's your power and the power of community. Own it. Use it.

    I do promise to get a regular member name and stop in from time to time. It won't be Louise--they retire mod names like beloved sports players or something.

    Take care of yourselves

    Goodbye, and thanks for all your input.

    Good luck also - keep up the weight loss journey, don't stray too much!

    Thanks Tomato. I will try...though the early Halloween candy buying was a big mistake.

    I don't think I want you to leave!
