    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Farewell My Rock Stars
    Louise_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Today is my last day at WebMD as a mod as I set out for new adventures.

    We have a lot of meetings where we go over our numbers and then have to explain why they are up or down. It always gave me trouble because well, I didn't have the magic that made my communities great.

    It was each of you in my communities. You support each other. You challenge each other. You offer resources and welcome the new members. Most of all you make our communities great. I thank you for all of that. Never forget how important YOU are--whether you just joined or you have been here since the beginning of the diet club--you are an important, valuable member of this community. Share yourself--even those slumps--because we all learn from that, we all relate to at least some part. Your victories make us believe we can all do it. Your struggles help us not feel alone.

    I do promise to get a regular member name and stop in from time to time. It won't be Louise--they retire mod names like beloved sports players or something. But my communities have a hold on me...and I won't vanish completely.

    Keep up the good work. Shed the bad habits and the pounds, keep working on the healthy lifestyle and know you, yes, you are special and beautiful. Even now, even if you haven't hit your goal weight or lost weight are beautiful.

    I will miss being your mod.
