    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

    So Long and Welcome!

    As of tomorrow, you will have a new moderator on this exchange. I will be working with her while she gets her feet wet-but I would like you to welcome your new moderator: Lainey_WebMD Staff.

    If you need to lose weight or get fit or just say hello-come look for me over on the Diet exchanges. If you have a child who demands a limited diet-but you want it a bit more nutritious-come over and say hello on the Food and Cooking Exchange .

    I also can be found here and there around the site. Hope to see you.

    Hello Parents!

    I am so fortunate to be a part of this Exchange. Some computer glitches delayed my posting but I am now ready to help. Parenting will be the toughest job you will ever have and most rewarding. I am a proud parent of 6 children, most are grown. I also have 2 granddaughters that are elementary ages.

    The threads I read in this Exchange are very interesting. A lot of love comes from each parent who needs advice or gives support and I am excited to be a part.

    Thanks for the welcome!
