    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!

    I keep the eye on the prize...
    I am trying despertly to loose 1 lb a week not too much to ask..right???Well for me it's almost impossible I loose it one week and gain it back the next.
    Now I hope I will have the prize in my sight until the 30 lbs. have been dropped.
    Now; 187.6
    My gold is: 160

    Good luck, believe in yourself.

    I aim for not more than 1/2 lb a week, I can't even manage 1lb a week. Sometimes even 1/4lb a week. Not that I've been losing anything lately!

    You will have to look what you can learn from your pattern of losing and gaining - what do you do in the weeks when you gain back the pound, vs the weeks when you lose a pound, and how can you improve on the "gaining weeks"?
