    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

    As many others are, I am new to site. I have a not unique story, have tried changing lifestyle and habits prior without success. I'm hoping to find what I am looking for to help me succeed.

    Howdy Badjenetix68 and welcome!

    Here are the Newcomer Tips Deb (IrishEyes) mentioned to get you started. You're welcome to post here as frequently as works for you. You'll see lots of topics--jump in where ever you like--or start one of your own.

    Sometimes the board is a bit quiet, but usually someone will answer within a day or two.

    Best wishes,

    Pounds off since December 2009= 35lbs. At this rate, it will be years until I reach goal, so I hope you don't mind having me around for a spell.
