    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,

    I am unhappy with the way I look. I am so embarresed about how my body looks some of my friends went to the beach and I didn't go because I was embarressed about how I would look. I am not anorexic or bulimic, which is really hard with all the magazines of the skinny girls today. When I am upset. There are times when I eat even if I am not hungry any more. I try not to do that, I just get so stressed at times or getting into an arguement with some one that I am eating with. Instead of argueing I just stuff my mouth, so I can't say anything.

    Hi Shadowrose,

    Emotional eating is not uncommon and the same holds true regarding feeling embarrassed by our bodies.

    Do you have anyone to talk to about how you're feeling, whether food is involved or otherwise?
