    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.

    Labor Day is September 5. That gives us 2 months to get some weight shed off of us. That's exactly 9 weeks from now. I weighed-in at 132.5 this morning. I am going to put in a goal of 12.5 pounds by Labor Day - that will bring it down to 120 pounds.

    My husband and I both started a no carbs, no sugar diet a month ago and have already lost 20 lbs each. If you have made up your mind that you are ready to loose the weight, this may help.
    Eat 6 small meals a day.
    here is an example of my daily meals:
    breakfeast, non-fat yogurt
    mid morning snack, fruit
    lunch, tuna salad, no bread or chef salad
    afternoon snack, fruit or fresh veggies
    dinner, any meats or fish and a side salad or veggies.
    night snack, fruit or small handfull of nuts.
