    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 have had osteoporosis for several years and have not done anything about it so getting worse. I refuse to take medications. I viewed Margaret Martin's video and want to start doing exercises to help build bone. I live a distance from any gym and want to get a weight bearing exercise unit. Does anyone know of a good one?

    You should just do some weight walking
    its good because it actually targets all your muscle groups at once so even if you went to the gym you would have to do spot workouts and you would be there for hours - what a BORE!
