I grew up in Independence but have lived in Topeka for years. Indy will always be home so I think of myself as SEK.

Greetings from Chetopa Kansas! My family and I just moved here a few months ago so I am brand new to the state. However my husband was born in Kansas and had always wanted to move the family back to his home state so here we are.

Hello friends, I am new to this but not new to being active and weight loss. In the past I've worked with a trainer as well as a handful of diets. The problem was I either never stuck with them well enough or I would cheat.

Now I have a handful of health issues (some even weight loss and activity won't address) and quite a few I could reduce or get rid of if I loose the weight.

So here I come, looking for help and motivation and accountablity.

I am in the Olathe area..

RaeSue, Keep looking until you find the exercise regimen that works for you. I can't walk much anymore and besides it's no good walking on a gravel road. You eat too much dust!
For me, it helps tremendously to exercise to music. I have some old exercise records that I recorded to a little tape recorder. I have used them for decades (I am really old). emoticon

Hey,
We live north of Independence.
I don't know if it's legal on this site but if any of you would like to help out our part of Kansas, go to www.besttennistown.com and vote for Independence. It is the only Kansas town in the final 10 towns. There is a good $ prize for the winning town to use for tennis. Independence is the next to the smallest in population so could certainly use your votes. Thanks.

Slowly and surely wins the race.

I have a book that is called Firm Up in 3 Weeks. I ordered it from Prevention. The exercises are simple and you just need a couple of 5 or 10 pounds hand weights. If you want to look at it I can loan it to you. Let me know.

Howdy everyone. I have met Judy but thought I would post here also. I am from outside Mound Valley-between Parsons and Cherryvale. By the Big Hill Lake area. Just found this website and trying to get used to it. Just had a baby in February. I suck at exercising but would like to know good quick exercised that I can do in the house or so. Hard to take a stroller on a gravel road.

Here is web site to check them out and it show you the exercise you can do with them.

http://www.ultimatewatermassage.com/reha
b/rehab-thera-band-excerise.htm
If you know how to copy and paste , cope and paste that into your address bar and click on it. It will take to the site. Hope this helps. My arm were sore after I used it. We have a pool going up in the back yard so I will be getting water weights to use. Then I'm thinking about joining curves in the fall.

Hey Sandy, what are Thera-bands and how do you exercise with them?

Thanks. I haven't been to Emporia since I was in high school.

Going to post this in all my teams, not sure who it was that told me about the Thera-Bands to exercise with. I was cleaning out tubs in garage today and ran across 6 of them yellow,red,green,blue,black and gray. So I started on them today. Your right using them does not effect my knees. Thanks for helpful hint. emoticon

Hi Everyone,
I was born and raised in Southeast Kansas and have never strayed very far. I have been to 47 of the 48 lower states. Each and everyone is beautilful, but I'm just like Dorothy, "There IS no place like home!"

If you are from this corner of the state and want to meet and greet, just reply to this. It will be interesting to see how many of us there are!
