    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,

    Younger at 71!

    I am 71 and female. I have always been active but in the last 15 years I have had a trainer and work out at a health club for 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 hours twice a week. My husband and I eat a low-carb, low-fat diet, with plenty of fruits and vegetables. I am at the lowest weight in 30 years. We stay very active in the community. We eat out a lot--there are many options in restaurants for healthy eating. I have been told I have the body of a 55 year-old. I preach this to my friends and a couple of them have also lost a great deal of weight. I want to be a healthy old person some day.
