    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,

    Requesting weight loss challenge

    justmejust posted:
    Okay, so though my weight has remained stable since Kim's first 3 week challenge this past summer I am wondering if another volunteer group challenge would kick me back into increased reducing. Anyone else feeling this way? We would need a leader!

    By the way, Judy, your rainbow posts are keeping me from regaining and are keeping me focused on nutrition, so please do not stop if someone starts a temporary challenge.

    Huggs all around!

    I NEED it but I'm not sure I'm ready for it yet. I'm having trouble finding my mojo at the moment. I'm lost at 213 and need to find my way back.

    Laura,
    Can we start next early next week? I'm game for Monday if you are. I can start the morning posts and anyone that wants to join in can just hop on board.
    You are right. I'd like to lose a few before Christmas and I need a nudge in the right direction.

    Laura baited the hook, Aus. lol, I'm as bad as you are.... I see the bait and , well let's just say I'm not just a glutton for food, but also a glutton for punishment!

    It's all Laura's fault this time around! She called us out.

    Where's Rachael? She's hiding.... but I can feel her lurking.

    AUSSIE! hahaha. The last thing I thought here before I went to sleep is that I BET you'd hop on too! But I'm warning myself...I can't go too low with the calories because my hair is still falling OUT! (I'm seeing the dermatologist this Monday). I'm thinking I should stick with 1200 instead of the 1700 I seem to be chobbling down the last month or so. Cookie Exchange invite in the mail last night. Yikes!

    So, what is this, Keet? Sort of like standing on the edge of the dock, swinging your arms back and forth, taking deeper and deeper breaths until you work up enough courage to jump in with the rest of us? lol... you fence sitter, you!
    Come on in, Keet! The water's fine!

    yes, whenever you feel like joining in that would be great. Even if you don't, you can lurk and watch the rest of us tubing down the river, beer cans in hand
