    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

    To all the "NEWBIES"

    Here's a couple of links that may help you on your way....
    The Recipes are from the "near and dear" here on this blog site. These are tried and approved by some of us and the links to other sites will help give you recipe ideas that are a little "less than boring" and a little more appetizing(while still being easy and pretty fast to fix) than those icky/never know what's actually in em, frozen dinners.

    The Exercises are mostly SparkPeople and Utube. Free to download with realplayer so that they are "right there" on your desktop.
    If you feel rambunctous, try the 4 min Tabatas, they will kick your butt in 4 min time and give you a rush of adrenaline, all while burning 90 calories!
    The Seated vids burn about 7 calories a min. and are easier on the joints and for those of us that are a bit heavier to start off with.

    If you like these, please, save to "save this Discussion" so that you can easily refer back to the links and ADD some recipes of your own, or some other exercise site link.
