    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

    Having problems getting there since I just started. One day at a time is tough for me but I am determined to lose the pounds. I guess you all have a long ways to go I just don't feel like I am along in this struggle which is good. I just like to share my feelings with the group since this is my first day starting. Open to any suggestions of ways to make it easier I welcome.

    hello, C --

    good for you for getting started! one day's worth of work on losing weight is one more day than no days worth of work on losing weight, so you should be proud of yourself.

    if you have not already done so, you might want to post in one of the weight-loss communities here; you can find a list of them at (there are two pages).

    good luck to you -- susie margaret
