    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,

    Hi all!

    I used to be Healthy at 76. Now I'm 77 so I guess I should change my name on here. I've been up and down and up and down again. I commend all of you who have met your goal and stayed there!
    Congratulations to all!

    Hi Sally,

    Welcome back! I've only been in maintenance for a few months. It is a challenging as the weight removal was. Like Judy, I seem to gain and lose the same few lbs. over and over. I guess it is the way of maintenance. Still learning, still tweaking on this forever journey....
