    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

    Happy New Year to all.

    Best wishes for a happy, healthy 2011. I hope you all survived the holiday meals and drinks. I managed to stick to my diet except for a homemade chocolate brownie and a couple of bottles of red wine.

    Man you did better than me but today's a new day & a new year. Dieting motivation is strong & I'm taking it a meal at a time & a bite at a time. I'm walking everyday too & going to the gym several times a week for weights & the elliptical trainer, despite recurrent PITA plantar warts on the balls of my feet that are tender. Gggrrrrrrrrrrr, I hate them. 67 years with out one & now I'm plagued with them for the past six months. Yet another hurdle to overcome.

    Happy new year to you, Josvin, and all the forum members. I guess that means you too EG. hehe.

    Yes Happy New Year to all. December is a tough month to stick to the plam. The last week being the hardest. I managed to get through pretty good a couple small pieces of cake and a bran muffin. And a few beers and some wine too.
    Here's to a Healthy and Happy 2011!!!

    Hi folks,

    I was travelling, staying with my kids and grandkids. A great time was had by all.

    It was also a time of egregious gratuitous gluttony. I enjoyed (almost) every bite, and I really enjoyed getting back on the diet.

    Hopefully, I stopped short of hurting myself. Hopefully. :-)

    Happy New Year to all !!

    Best regards, EngineerGuy

    I have been very busy over the holidays, too, and have neglected WebMd lately. I wish a healthy, happy and propserous New Year to all, too. I am hoping my schedule eases up a bit and I am able to post more.

    Hi RubyStar2,

    Yes, quite busy also. Too much work, but that's a whole lot better than none. (Been there, done that, got the T-shirt, and that's no fun. )

    Great to hear from you, RubyStar. :-)

    Yes, I hope to post more, too.

    Best regards, EngineerGuy
