    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!

    31 & trying to conceive

    I am 31 years old & have been overweight most of my life. I diet/exercise to lose weight & then i stop. It's always the same pattern. Its almost impossible to get family & friends to workout with me. It's not easy for me to workout alone. I have also been trying to get pregnant for over a year now. Weight could be what is keeping me from having children. I have got to make a plan & stick to it. Its just so hard. Having people encourage me would be a helpful start
