    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,

    You've probably heard that people who write down their food intake are more successful in meeting their weight goals. WebMD's unique Food and Fitness Planner gives you the calorie, nutrition, and portion-size tools you need to help you make healthier choices.

    So true!! Just this week, I started keeping a "Food Diary" What a shocker! I may have been eating healthy, but too many snacks & after dinner snackings were out of control! Some days I had 800 calories just in my evening snacks! Plus, I quit smoking Jan 4, so I tend to want to snack alot on hard candies--they added up calories fast! Now, writing down food I've eaten makes me more aware & accountable for what I put into my mouth! It was an eye opener!

    Where do I find Web MD's Food and Fitness planner tool? I am new to this site and just joined today, so I can use all the help and advise I can get. I really want to lose 20 lbs to start as my clothes are so uncomfortable right now. I gained about 20 pounds when I took an anti-depressant and now that I'm off the drug I want to concentrate on losing this excess weight.

    Oh, by the way, do you have to write down any certain things in your food diary, like when and where you eat and how you are feeling?
