    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,

    Thanks for everyone's support. I have tried to kick up the exercise a bit, even with all the rain we are getting I North Fl. I can now report the scales said 188 this morning. I am glad it is going slow so hopefully it will stay off. I keep trying to remind myself that this is a life change, not a diet.

    Thanks for sharing with us Jimbo mom. Happy your scale showed a good number today! Glad you increased your exercise.

    We all learn from you and enjoy your posts! Thanks, and keep posting your ups and downs. It helps us figure out our ups and downs too.


    Baby steps, to a healthy lifestyle change. When you change your thoughts you will then change your weight. Getting healthy is about progress, not perfection.

    Remember progress is progress no matter how slow it is. It's better than what you did before your journey. Look back before you lost the weight. Remember how terrible you felt before working out and before eating right. It's progress!

    Thanks Amber I am going to try and remember that. It is so easy to get lost in a lack of progress mentality.

    The mind set is the hardest to get into, and i can agree with you there.
    The good thing is, once you have changed your life style, it comes to be second nature and no longer a struggle.
    I hope you the best
