    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,

    Congrats! It's a great feeling. I didn't get into that category until under 180 - now the motivation is for healthy weight! Go team!

    Certainly an achievement to be proud of. The new "designation" of BMI will definitely be a card up your sleeve to pull out and flash in front of your doctor next time you see him/her. Be proud, it's a right of passage on your successful journey.

    That's great Norma! I think I have to be at 178 to get out of the obese category.
