    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

    positive love and energy on your efforts to loose weight. I am so 50 lbs. over weight, but I started this two weeks ago and I already lost 11 pds. and giving my children a great example of how to live to eat to live instead of living to eat. They are checking all nutitional menu's at the grocery store now! They are my support system. Well I'm sure you'll do fine...we have all fallen off this horse at one time or persistant and forgive yourself for being human....we all slip up...beating ourselves over the head over it..leads to stress and stress leads to more just living to eat..I'm sure you will win the war of the bulge!!! me to remember the lessons and not the mistakes
