I'm in Fouke, below Texarkana. Moved to Texarkana from Hot Springs in 1968 then to country outside of Fouke in 1997. So I'm actually in the middle of nowhere and love it!

I lived in 3 counties west of Detroit, MI my entire life -- until moving to Arkansas 7 years ago! I live in Russellville, AR and have fallen in love with this part of the country.

I am originally from Missouri, but have lived in North Dakota, Western Nebraska, Iowa, and now have been in Greenwood, AR for a year.

I have been signed on to SP for a couple weeks now and confess, I just have not had the time to login regular or workout. I see those of you who are striving for weight loss goals and it is very inspiring. My goal is for a healthier life style, as my actual weight is so up and down, that I have decided to care more about the way I look and feel. And I figure I will loose some weight as I begin to eat right and exercise.

Hi,

I moved to Gravette in 1956 from Montana, at five years old. My relatives told me that I would never have to wear shoes again. I was so mad when mom wouldn't let me go barefoot in January. I have lived in Gravette, Rogers, Fayetteville and now Pea Ridge. emoticon

Hi. I've actually been a member of this team for a while and have never posted.

I'm from West Fork (Northwest Arkansas) and work in Bentonville. I'm 30, mother of 1 (9yo boy) who is very active and it leaves little to no time for me to exercise and be healthy.

Hello fellow Arkansan SP emoticon , my name is Melannie and as of August 1, '09, I live in Cabot, AR (NE of NLR). I've been on SP for 16 days now and I don't know how I ever lived without it . . . LOL I have lost almost 100 lbs on my own, however, I still have 50 more to go. As I get older, that's getting harder and harder to do . . . LOL Congrats on all of your successes and remember that alone we can accomplish many things, but TOGETHER there is no limit to what we can accomplish! emoticon

Hi everyone,

I recently joined SP, and I'm still getting to know my way around here...

My name is Debby and I live in Ozone, which is near Clarksville. I was born in Minnesota, grew up and lived in Florida for 34 years, spent a year in Missouri in 2000, before coming here and calling Arkansas home. I love it here, and can't imagine living anywhere else! :)

Hi Tammy! Good to know ya! When I first started with SparkPeople, I used the exercise resources every day. Then I lost motivation. Now I follow one of the teams on Twitter, & they send out a challenge every day. That gets me moving! Check your email for an invite!

Happy Sparks to You!

My name is Rhonda, and I am pure-blooded Arkie. Don't have any papers to prove my pedigree, though. emoticon I was born in McCrory and lived there most of my life, but I decided to live somewhere different in the new millenium. After a short stint in Amagon, I landed in Walnut Ridge.

I am not as concerned about pounds as I am inches and dress sizes. I have some mighty purty dresses hangin in my closest that I would like to wear some day!

Happy to be here with you good folks!

I'm a 60 year old married woman in Searcy, AR in pretty good shape (physical that is, not body shape..lol) and I would love to find someone who would like to walk sometimes in the mornings or possibly evenings. I need encouragement to keep walking and nothing does that better for me than to not want to let someone down by missing a walking appointment.
