    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!

    Hi Lesley
    welcome to our little group You may have to curtail the sweets to make the weight removal happen .if you are a night eater then a cut off time maybe of help otherwise eating a rainbow of fruits and vegies is a good way to start.
    make it a plan you can live with for life because it is so easy to revert to old eating habits and regain ..
