    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!

    Hi Kristi, welcome aboard. First step is to make out a food and fitness planner to use as a tool to log your intake and exercises.
    Make small changes that you can live with. Make up your mind that you are worth the effort and REALIZE that this isn't a diet... this is a way of life. It took some time to gain that weight, and it'll sure take some time to lose it and keep it gone, so plan on forever , now.

    Thank you Kim! I'm have such problem logging food. Water,weight and exercise. I have written the food down in a notebook. Today, I'm purchasing a pedometer. I find that to be motivating. Good luck, Kristi

    I always hated the OLD way of logging, ie via journal entries. I'd either lie my pants off or forget what all I'd eaten as I was writing it and trying to find/calculate calories per item. It sucked so bad I only did it for a couple of days way back when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth, lol.

    These new online planners do just about everything for you, which is WAY easier and less time consuming.
