    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.

    Hi everyone!

    I've been the usual busy, and gotten busier. Bettering myself, my marriage, my careers. I like my day work shift, but have been less regimented about daily gym workouts and more lax again with daily calories too. Lately my scale has gotten over 186. Boohoo. I hope Judy can advise me about how to get through this. Or anyone!!

    aha Laura I am glad you are getting progress in careers and your marriage too . You do know what to do to get through this You just keep starting over never quit
    make better choices health wise and you will begin to remove again ...
    as I have said before GYM workouts are not important it is the food choices that make all the difference . Just get some exercise when you can
    Hugs Judy

    Laura, you have made wonderful progress in many areas of your life, and I, too, encourage you to keep pressing forward. You will get back on track. The Nike slogan comes to mind: Just Do It! (((Hugs)))
