They take the word "HEALTHY" out of the group name and we end up with spammers advertising in the first week... while we have always had them, I KNEW this would happen as soon as they changed the name of the group. 

*sigh*

The name was changed to expand the content to include topics on women's health.

Per TOS spam/advertising posts are not allowed, this has not changed. If a post violates TOS please report it and it will be removed.

I don't understand why they would change it though.. CM has a group they own called Healthy Moms already. This group has always been about a healthy weight loss and by removing healthy from the title, we are going to have an influx of people looking for that quick fix. I've already seen it and it irritates me. Why mess with a good thing? I've been in the group since the very beginning and while I have liked some changes, this is one that I just can't get behind. You'll find that many of the other old members dislike the change as well. 

They have always posted topics that have nothing to do with the name of the group, so I'm not sure why they think changing the name would impact that at all...

I have always reported the spammers, so that is not a problem, but honestly...without healthy in the title, I have a feeling I'll be reporting more posts than I will be responding on. I'll eventually get used to it, but I don't like the change. I think it was a very bad move on the part of CM..not that my opinion matters. LOL
