    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.

    I hope you all have a great holiday!
    I am currently convinced that Christmas time is evil for me on a diet. Chocolate has completely taken my cravings.. T_T
    I did see 147.8 the other day, but now I'm bouncing around between 147.8 and 149.2... I just wish that I could get to my normal BMI weight range which is 145 or below. But if it doesn't happen until after this holiday season, I guess that's okay. I get so fixated on the number on the scale going down that I completely miss the fact that I've gone from size 22 jeans to size 8, I was 234 pounds and am now under 150. All within about 9 months or so..
    Hopefully I can maintain below 150 through these next few days and get back on track for New Years!

    I hope you all get a chance to enjoy your family this holiday season! I know I can't wait to see if William will rip into his presents. He doesn't seem so interested in that..
    I also can't wait to eat my grandma's awesome tasting ham!

    Again, MERRY CHRISTMAS!
    God Bless all of you! Drive safely if you're traveling ^_^
