    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,

    I am 58 years old, out of shape, going through a bad relationship and feeling like I desperately need to lose weight. Can anyone out there relate to this?
    I feel bad, I look bad, and I need the support of someone who is going through this too. Nobody I know is overweight and so I don't really have anyone to help with this. I am not horribly overweight, I need to lose about 35 pounds and on someone who is only 5'3", that is a lot!

    Think "simplify". For me, energy is a commodity so I try to make my goals for the day, few and simple, so as to conserve as much of it for my evening walks. Exercise is tough to do when you're exhausted; who knew? Also, if you eat when you're emotional, then avoid getting emotional. again, who knew?
