    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,

    Give your best friend $100 and bet them you will do the following...

    Take a 10 minute walk. Same time, every day. If its raining, put a rain coat on.

    After 30 days, if you win the bet, you get your $100, back.


    Give your best friend $200 and bet them you will do the following...

    Take a 20 minute walk. Same time, every day. If its raining, put a rain coat on...

    After 30 days, if you win the bet, you get your $200, back.


    Give your best friend $300 and bet them...

    Give your best friend $500 and bet them...



    Next, tell your husband, wife, mom or child, if they find your favorite "death" snack (ice cream, donuts, snickers bar, etc), anywhere, in the house or car in the next 30 days, you will pay them $50 and they have your permission to slap you hard in the face...Just haul off and whack you, real good!

    But, if you win the bet, they must pay you $50...(optional: you have permission to slap them in the face as hard as you like.)

    If you are successful, do the following...

    Tell your husband, wife, mom or child, if they find your 2nd favorite "death" snack (ice cream, donuts, snickers bar, etc) anywhere in the house or car in the next 30 days, you will pay them $50 and they have your permission to slap you hard in the face...Just haul off and whack you, real good.

    But, if you win the bet, they must pay you $50...(optional: you can slap them in the face as hard as you like.)

    If you are successful, do the following...

    3rd favorite death snack

    4th favorite death snack



    All I can say, harden100, if you lived with me, you would lose the weight...Either that or I'd get arrested. You can bet on that!
