    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!

    Well, I have tried 3 times now, and I cant get my photos to post Buggers!

    I had a great time on St Simons Island, feel great, and am getting back to work. This government shutdown is messing up real estate badly! So I'm bogged down at work.

    I hope I can figure out the posting problem soon. Take care everyone

    The Facebook instruction didn't work for me at all. Maybe because I use a mac. Made me crazy for months until I downloaded the photobucket app. Upload your pic to photobucket then click on the chain and download to here.

    What's your weight now, Nancy? How are you managing your nutrition? Any difficulty keeping it to 1/4 cup? Any difficulty avoiding forbidden foods?

    Wishing you all the best.

    Sharon, I am now 234 lbs, and as of this morning I have gone from size 28-30 to a size 20! see photos. No I'm not having trouble sticking to the 1/4 a meal, and forbidden foods are only forbidden if they will sabotage me and my health (sugar, sugar, sugar), or my stomach isn't ready to digest it yet... (red meats, lettuce, and 'tough' skinned veggies. I will NEVER touch soda pop again! That crap is pure poison developed to killing us slowly! I am sooo convinced of this now! And the crap that is in it OMG! so no... I'm not having trouble avoiding it, now that I know what it does to me and what its really made of.

    Hi Nancy

    congrats on the weight loss so far you look great
    also I love your new mind set seeing some of those foods as poison is so true . we were killing ourselves by eating that junk
    I am pretty sure you will be a 14 by Christmas or at least close to it .. Good luck Hugs Judy
