    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!

    Progress in my fitness journey
    Ganesh posted:
    I'm so pleased to share with the group that since I started on my fitness journey on November 14, in just over a month, I dropped my BP reading to a healthy 120/80, my sugar is sub 100 and dropped at least 6 lbs off my weight. I've still got ways to go, but am very pleased at the progress made thus far. Thanks for all the inspiration I draw from this website. My best wishes to everyone for a fit, healthy life.

    Hi Ganesh,
