    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,

    Hello. I am not new to WebMD but new to this forum. I have been a member of WW at 220 lbs. on my way from 254 to 149lbs. I must say being anonymous is somewhat empowering. Is that weird? I think being able to share and learn from others on the same journey will be a big resource for me. Glad I found you guys.

    WELCOME, Karen.

    I'm glad I found this forum, also. It really has helped me to get the support of fellow board buddies.

    I never went to WW. Thought the plan was good but didnt want to spend $$. I like the 24/7 posting on here.

    Well good luck and keep us informed.

    I work 3rd shift as well. I walk on my breaks and lunches. If some reason I am not able do it during that time I walk when I get home in the mornings. I eat a small bowl of cereal when I first wake up. I cook supper and eat that. I will pack several snacks to eat through the night. A combination of veggies, fruit, yogurt, and peanut butter. Then I will eat oats and some fruit for breakfast when I get home. Hope this helps. If you need to ask more I would be glad to help.
