Ya sure yooper betcha. I was raised in Iron Mountain but have been living under the bridge since I graduated from college in 1979. Some day I plan to go back as most of my family is still there. Spark People is a great site, it has helped me a lot. Welcome to the team.
I can't help clicking on anything yooper! I am a yooper once removed (and a yooper wannabe).. My mom was born in Ishpeming and my dad in Wakefield and when they were kids moved to Trout Creek and Painsville. So, I spent all my summers as a kid vacationing in the U.P. visiting grandparents and aunts and uncles. I am always sooooooo jealous of real yoopers who get to live year round in all that natural paradise. I always tell my husband that I feel like I'm coming home when I cross the bridge.....if only it were so! So, if you all don't mind, I will sneak in on your yooper conversation now and then. Oh, and good luck to you all in your weight loss journey.
No one can go back and make a brand new start, but anyone can start now and make a brand new ending ~ Carl Bard
