    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,

    Welcome margusoch.
    Although I have never considered vegetarianism for myself, I wish you a wonderful journey and hope that if you do start living this lifestyle approach, that you share your ups and downs with it with us. As a community we welcome input in the different paths that members take toward attaining their goals.

    Yep, I did. I lost 60 lbs and my doc said I would lose more if I stayed a vegetarian. I didn't eat meat, dairly products, fish or chicken. Strickly veggies and fruit. No bread either. I was 185 and got down to 123.
    AusGram -SW - 194; CW -188; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

    Why did you stop Aussie? Was it too hard to stick to or did you just feel unhealthy?
