    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?

    Since we all have talking about inspiration. Here is picture of before and after of me and my husband. He has lost 70lbs since May of 2012. He is wanting to lose 40lbs more. Some of you are on my FB page but I wanted to show the boardies that don't have FB.

    My gosh Amber, you had CHINS!!! now it's pointy and elfin shaped, lol. Cute! And look at those cheekbones. You've got a great face. Very pretty.
    And your hubby's actually got a neck doesn't he? lol
    As a matter of fact his whole HEAD looks smaller. My bf's does the same. It's unbelievable how fat a forehead can actually be, isn't it??
    You guys are very inspirational. A very good looking, much more HEALTHY looking couple.

    Ok, I have been lurking for almost a year now and I had to finally join specifically so I could comment on this post. Amber, this is amazing. Admirable and inspirational. I am seeing these same types of changes in myself and I can't wait to get where you are.

    These are great pictures to inspire us. Thanks so much for posting them. This may be politically incorrect on this board. I see the change in you, but I think you are lovely in the before and the after shots. Of course we aren't seeing your tush! But your DH's face has undergone quite a transformation. How wonderful that you did this together.

    Well I haven't been working on losing weight. Just been toning and maintaining. I am slimming up due to gaining some good muscle mass. I haven't lost any but I have gain like 3 pounds but it's muscle so that's good. Thanks for all the lovely compliments.
