    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,

    Good morning all. 6 years ago I lost 80 lbs. In the last year I gain half of that back. It's time to stop the gain & and go back to where my body felt good. I am starting out at 190.5. My goal is 150.

    Good morning! It's wonderful that you caught it before you gained it all back. I know how frustrating that is. And it's just amazing how quickly it goes on compared to coming off! Best wishes in your journey.
