    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,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    Keep your eyes on the prize!

    Needless to say, I reconsidered the cookie I was about to eat. I'm going to post this in several key places throughout the house.

    I'm so glad this could help you! You responded to my first post on this site, and I see you have sent kind words to others who have posted. I hope your thoughtfulness is repaid with the loss of weight you want.

    Keep up the positive attitude--it's contagious!

    Aw... thanks! That's so sweet of you to say. Pay it forward... that's what I always say. I put the quote in my list of inspirational messages. They can be nice to read on a rainy day.
