    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.

    Hi everyone!

    I'm not really sure how to start this, but as you can see from the title, I'm looking for a diet buddy!

    I'm a college student who's having difficulties managing my ever-so-fluctuating weight (especially with the terrible dining hall options). Ideally, I'd like to lose ~40 lbs by the end of this year. Unfortunately, I'm easily thrown off track by stress and excuses haha So I'd really like to find someone that wouldn't mind emailing with me so that we can motivate each other, bother each other to go exercise, exchange advice, and all that good stuff! Please let me know if you'd be interested!

    Happy Losing!!

    Hi WantsToBeSkinny

    Welcome, and we would all like to be your buddy. The people on this board are in a similar position - overweight, desperately wanting to lose weight, aware of temptation. Therefore they understand what you're going through.

    Just post regularly and share the details with us. We can try and encourage you all along, while sharing our progress, frustrations etc. with you.

    Good luck.
