    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

    Hi, What are some of your goals?

    totallywiggedout responded:
    Got a backstory, Littlewalty?? Would love to see what your goals are , how you expect to tackle your journey in order to succeed, and what you are doing atm to change things for the better.
    Don't know if you've already started a food and fitness planner, but they are wonderful tools to help you succeed.
    Best things to do are a free planner, reading labels on your favorite foods and finding better/healthier alternatives, drinking at least 64 oz of water every day and adding some exercise to your routine.
    Little changes add up fast, especially at first. So don't try to overwhelm yourself by doing everything all at once, it just sets you up to fail.
    Slow and steady, wins the race.
