    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!

    2011 Easter/Spring Weight Loss Challenge - 9 Weeks to Lose!

    Elizabeth_WebMD_Staff posted:
    Even though it has been about 25 years since I have looked forward to a college spring break, I still equate Spring Break/Easter with bathing suit shopping, going to the beach and hanging out on the river. Although, I do not have the same fervor (or the same body) to shop for suits, it is still my spring ritual. Anyone else rolling their eyes or exhaling in frustration at the thought of shopping for the dreaded bathing suit?

    Thanks to the motivation of our members and accountability by moderating this community I have lost 22 pounds since October. I still have about 20 more to shed and the last couple weeks have not be so good.

    More motivation and accountability is what we need - Pick a goal - pounds gone, bathing suit, sundress - and let's make it happen!

    We will check in weekly and report on our progress, celebrate our successes and help each other with challenges.

    Post your current weight (CW), your goal weight (GW) and how much you would like to lose by Easter.
