    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 everyone ! I hope we're all having a good Monday. I got a bit off track this weekend. I was out of town visiting family, and when we get together it seems that eating is all we do. But I'm back today, and as determined as ever to stick this out. It feels nice to come to this group and see all the encouraging comments. Missed everybody ! Have an excellent day !

    Aw, Margie. Sorry that you fell off the wagon a bit over the weekend. But, hey! ! At least you held onto the reigns of the pony, right? You just gotta climb back into the wagon and ride it again.
    Weekends are tough. Wanting to eat out or eat what everyone else is seems tougher on Sat and Sun for some reason...Ah well, we shall prevail.
    Got your meals all figured out for the week? Sometimes that helps to keep the journey from jogging into no man's land.
