Hi Mel, sorry I'm not a runner ,not even slow runner. I do envy runners but every time I've ever tried my knee won't allow it. So I do a Silver Sneakers class 4 x week and Zumba 2 x week.

Tricia, I enjoyed reading about your life in Powhatan, it must be wonderful to have that much acreage and so many family members close by. I do pray that your and your husband's health will be better in the new year.

Yes, Powhatan does have several historic buildings, the old courthouse that has great tours, old school that my husband's grandmother taught in, the old jail, and a new Records Archives that has records for all over NE Arkansas. Of course you have Lake Charles which has camping, swimming, boating. I am blessed to live on the North side of the lake on 150 acres of woods, hills and trails which has been in my husband's family for over 100 years. I have my mother-in-law, brother-in-law and sister-in-law all on the same property. Luckily we all get along great.

I belong to the Black River Health Club in Pocahontas. We have a Silver Sneakers class 4 days a week which is wonderful for me. Plus my Mom & sisters live in Pocahontas so I get to see them several times a week. Of course in the spring & summer we garden, hike the trails, play on the lake and cookout a lot with family. I lived in Jonesboro for 15 years before marrying my husband and moving here 13 years ago. I love living in a small community out in a rural area. Also I'm 30 minutes from Jonesboro so I can be there for dr or shopping whenever I want.

Martha, actually, Walnut Ridge is closer to Tricia. I go through Powhatan a lot when I go to Cave City. I like the drive through there. Lots of my hubby's kinfolks live around Lynn and Strawberry which is not far from Powhatan. Years ago when our kids were just little tykes, they had a little country music hootenanny type show there in Powhatan on Saturday nights. We used to go and hubby and I would sing in that. They have a really neat museum there and also some old historic buildings.

Trjcja, I think the closest member to you at the moment would be Egrammy who lives in Cherokee Village. I love the area you live in and the camping is great! We have one in Walnut Ridge that I'm trying to contack to come back.

emoticon emoticon on the weight loss. I wish I could say that. LOL I hope you have joined our New Year Challenge. If we can help in any way, please let us know. If you have any ideas to help our team become lots more active again, let's hear them.
Where do you go to the gym?
I belong to St. Bernard's Health & Wellness in here in Jonesboro but right now I have a severely pulled pectineus muscle so no exercise for me for a good long while unfortunately.

I haven't been on this site for almost a year. Been on some groups on FB and they've been great but I need more for 2014. I live in Powhatan, AR, approx. 30 miles west of Jonesboro. I live on Lake Charles and I'm a stay at home Mom. I just got back to the gym in the past 3 months and I'm trying to stay motivated. I have lost 25 lbs this year and need to lose 25 more. Hope to meet some people in my area for support.

I'm currently living in Bentonville, AR.
If you are familiar with the University in Fayetteville, then these towns are all along the same highway. Fayetteville, then north to Rogers, up a little to Bentonville. Only little ol' Bella Vista is between us and the MO border.

I have lived in reverse order, the norhtern Chicago area town of Vernon Hills, Canton - 15 min east of Ann Arbor MI, nice town west of Cleveland OH, Jakarta Indonesia, Hiroshima Japan, and even Utah, and Oregon where I grew up.

UPDATE:

I still have a Harrisburg address, but am now back in town instead of way out in the country.

Hope more of you will let us know what area you live in.

Hi, Jeanne!

I'm a transplant from Indiana (2009) so I'm not familiar with very many places yet. Where is Mountain Home? Sounds like it must have been the place to be over the holiday!
