    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.

    Judy, before I opened the box (under more) to read the rest, I was almost afraid to see what foods/drinks the list entailed. Good surprise. No food on the list and everything else that is, is already on my "to do" list.

    Jayne, my daughter is that way and she is never happy cause of it. It keeps her under this cloud. I keep trying to tell her not to take things and people so serious. The only one you should try to please other than yourself if Jesus, God and the Holy Spirit. They are the only ones that will count in the end anyway. So lift up your voice and sing to the world, its a happy day out there and He is your constant companion.

    Don't live life comparing yourself to everyone else.

    Funny you should post this. This weekend I watched "Hungry for Change" and Dr. Northrup suggested you write a note that says "I love myself unconditionally right now" and tape it to your mirror. I've been repeating it because I criticize myself every time I'm in front of that mirror. #5 is what I do! She says it may take a month to believe it. Okey Dokey!
