    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,

    Old friend of mine stopped me today in our local Dollar General. She stated, that 40 something pounds you lost took 10 years off your face. Motivated to take the other 10 years off my face. 45 more pounds to go.

    Nice NSV, Jimbo! I know our motivation has to come from within, but it sure is nice to get compliments for all our hard work.

    And you know, it will also add years on the end of your life.
    Look younger AND live longer. Sounds like a win - win to me
