    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,

    Hello everyone I am new on here. I started my journey on losing weight and becoming healthy on Jan 13 so 2 weeks ago. I am eating well and joined the gym. First week I did good lost 6.2 lbs and will know my result for week 2 tomorrow. But this week was harder on me. The reason I am joining this group is because I have over 125 lbs to lose and since everyone on here can relate we can motivate and help each other. My family and most of my friends are small and they don't really know what I am going through. They are there for support but I feel that I am not being heard. So with joining this group I know that everyone here feels more like me. I am looking forward to get to know you and share our journey together. Have a great Sunday! Talk to u soon
