    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,

    I am psyched! Let's do this! By the way, Amber this reminds me of you. I noticed you started running in place of some of your walks. How is that going? : )

    Thanks for this link Laura. I read this last night and just had to wonder at her diligence. She looks great, doesn't she? It's amazing just how much changing her mindset about food and exercise, changed her life.
    Without going to the gym, she may have never met her fiance. and her nights "out" drinking and eating, are now used for jogging and gym. That's quite a turnaround in lifestyle.
    cool
