Our family of 4 moved to Alaska from MN in 2002 and due to my hubby's work, we moved to Nebraska in 2014. We were in Talkeetna and worked for AK railroad. We raised 2 kids there, but they are in MN for college now and all our family (plus us originally) so we are working our way back to the Midwest. We still have our AK cabin on the lake and hope to visit often! I love Nebraska too...cows, horses, prairie, and's really very beautiful! I've been exploring my town of North Platte with long walks for exercise. I'm 55yrs young! I love to quilt. emoticon

Hello Alaska Woman! I was so happy to see someone my age also from Alaska! I was in Dutch Harbor for 10 years and have recently moved back to Calif.! Alaska has my heart and I will return someday, I know you have to work hard at staying healthy, Dutch Harbor is the junk food capitol ! I just started with sparkpeople and I am just learning my way around, it is pretty interesting, take care and lets keep in touch - Lindasu501

Hi Alaska Woman! emoticon

Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year to you! emoticon emoticon

I hope you are having a Good Holiday season and are managing your weight loss efforts during this trying time of the year! emoticon

I am in Idaho, with my LIL SIS for a month. I am helping prepare for Christmas (We are Celebrating with one bunch of the family tomorrow and another on Christmas Night).

Plus, we are going to the gym. I am her personal trainer for the month, as she is intimidated by the machines, and I have worked out with them for more than 28+ years. So, we both hope to see an improved health and fitness benefit by the time I leave and return to Alaska the middle of JAN 2011. MAN- where did the year go?

Have a Great Holiday Season and I hope you haven't gotten too much more snow in the last few days since I have been gone. I know it was -7 degrees when I called Homer this morning.
