    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,

    Im just gettin started with eating healthy and exercising and for the first time in almost a year i went running....It was only half a mile but it made me feel good. It made want to try harder. I want to look in the mirror and say i look good and I love I realize that I have along way to go but I really want to make it this time. So anyone with words of wisdom or encouragement are more then welcome i could use all i can get.

    I just wanted to say good for you. I have lost 120Ibs in the last 2 1/2 years and I am still looking to loose about 20 more. If you would like we could be weight lose buddies. I hope you keep with it. You will feel so much better once you feel healthier and once you see the results. Good luck.

    The way I look at it is eventually we need or want to take the weight off. The time is now and you can enjoy your new found body sooner!! And others may as well. Keep positive and drinks lots of water!
