If you can tell me a bit about yourself, I or another moderator can help you pick one or more communities to visit.
We have many community members whose illnesses are undiagnosed or they are undergoing a diagnostic workup and don't have a diagnosis yet so go ahead and write back and we'll see what we can do for you!
I watched The Biggest Loser earlier tonight and no Curtis Stone on this episode. The contestants went to New Zealand this week.
I've been watching tonight's show and I'm pretty impressed with Jaime Oliver so far. The demonstration of how commercial hamburger is made was totally sickening. Here's a hint, if you've PVR'd the show to watch later, don't eat while you are watching that part if you don't want to get sick to your stomach.
The bus demo about how much sugar kids get in their food was really eye opening too!
I won't watch the show live because I'll be watching a show which is on at the same time on NBC called The Biggest Loser. That show features celebrity chef Curtis Stone who also does a lot of food ingredient makeovers to make meals healthier.
It should be interesting to see which reality show has better ratings. I say bring it on!
Do you like to watch celebrity cooking show? Do you ever get cooking ideas from them? How have your eating habits changed because of them?
WebMD is working with the White House on a new initiative to help support military members and their families.
The initiative, called "Joining Forces," was announced Tuesday by first lady Michelle Obama and second lady Jill Biden, at a news conference in which the were joined by the President and Vice President.
The Obama/Biden effort calls for all sectors of American society to give service members and their families all the support they need.
This week's Diagnosis: Reality Check blog entry makes my day! Retail Therapy Really Is Good for You . Why yes it is, and I don't need an excuse to hit the stores and grab a latte to window shop while I get in my exercise walking up and down the mall corridor looking at all the pretty clothes in the windows.
But it's nice to know that shopping is good for you! Hooray!!!
What is your favorite place to shop? Mine is to visit a local indoor mall and visit a makeup store to look at all the pretty bottles of fragrance.
How about you? Do you have a black belt in shopping?
I notice that many newcomers here don't have a personal profile photo for their avatar yet. Mine is me and my dog!
Do you want to post your profile photo but are having trouble doing so?
Recently I tried to change my profile photo and had trouble uploading it. I finally was able to finally get the photo to display but it took some work. If you are interested in uploading your profile photo, here's how to do it!
Log in and then go to your profile page either in your account settings or click on your user name to pull up your own profile page and you can change it by clicking on the
Be sure you are using nothing larger than 4 MB image as your picture. Even if it is smaller, some members using Internet Explorer have experienced some compatibility issues.
To fix this, in Internet Explorer, click on Tools, then Compatibility View Settings, and in there make sure that all three boxes are checked and that the WebMD address is added.
If that doesn't help, we encourage you to use an alternative browser such as Firefox (an easy download and installation) to log in to your account and upload your picture.
I would also suggest logging on to a computer that has Windows 7 as its operating system rather than Windows XP as I had a problem with uploading a photo using IE8 and Firefox with Windows XP.
If you are using Firefox be sure that the plugins for Firefox have been installed, you will probably get a page that says you need a plugin for the page to display correctly.
