    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!

    amlynn when i was in high school i had the same issue. i often had to eat lunch at school. avoid fried foods...opt for a salad or something that is not full of carbohydrates (sugars, starches, and grains). i lost weight in school by portion control and exercising. I exercised by riding a stationary bike for about an hour everyday except weekends. to make it more enjoyable, i listened to music while riding.also avoid sugary drinks as well. good luck
