    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,

    With you being at such a young age starting this journey of awareness my suggestion would be to talk to your mom. I am an overweight mom who has a 12 year old daughter who thinks she is "fat". She could loose a few pounds but she is by no means fat. I think if you can find someone close to you to talk to that would help greatly. Even if it is the school guidance counselor I'm sure it will help you along.
