    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,

    I am almost afraid to post this...I am down 10 more lbs. since the last time I checked (about 3 weeks?) and am down 20 from my highest weight. I haven't always been good, but mostly keeping it simple because of this broken arm.

    BTW, ortho doc apt is this Wed. Hoping to graduate to a short arm cast. Depends on how it is healing.

    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.

    Thank you everyone!!
    I did get a shorter cast, and the pins are out, but the break was severe and will be in this cast a minimum of 6 weeks. Now working stiffness out of elbow and still working on all fingers.
