    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,

    This the first time I have been on this site. I have lost 50 pounds in the last few months due to severly restricting my calorie count and monitor how much I eat every day. Part of it is that as I have grown older my taste and appetite has changed. I am still considered overweight by standards but my MD and therapist are insisting that I am anorexic and have threatened involuntary hospitalization. I don't see myself as anorexic and do not fit that profile.

    I understand where you are coming from but you also have to look at it from their shoes. They are seeing you on a crash course and are trying to correct you before you get to a risky weight. You may still be of healthy weight but one day you may not. They see this as a likely outcome.

    Heed their concerns. I constantly deny I have problems but evry once in awhile I have a lucid day.

    Best wishes to you and best of luck,
