If you have been in the SW before and liked it I am sure you will like it here . It is peaceful. After growing up in the very populated faced paced overcrowded NE I am in love with the place :)

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

I live in Las Cruces, which is about an hour from Alamogordo or what people call "Alamo". The base has lots of triatholons year round. Check out www.southwestchallengeseries.com/ , a lot of the races are on base. They are pretty fun, not too many people go to them ( about 50 to 100) but its the same people which is fun! emoticon

I'm excited to be getting to live in New Mexico. I'm from Oklahoma and SW Texas and so I hope that'll help me out some. Being here is so packed in and crowded that I'm due some serious wide open spaces and I don't mind the heat. I'm positive it'll be a great experience for my family and can't wait to get outta here. When we moved to Idaho it did take us a bit to adjust to the higher elevation I'm just hoping it won't be to hard when mixed with the summer heat since we are moving in July. Trust me I know humid, trapped and closed in living in Tokyo. I really can't relate how excited I am to be coming to a place so close to home. You can't take the girl outta the country but you can't take the country out of the girl I guess.

Yes that is sure true . I also had trouble and it was harder for me to breathe being from a lower altitude.Took me about 6 months to adapt .
I found it hard to see as well because I could see so much. I found it over whelming and would just look and look . I had never lived any where void of Forest. A lady I met told me my eyes would stretch LOL They have and now when I am back East I feel trapped and closed in.And I hate the humidity.

I don't know where in Japan you're moving from, but when you get here, dehydration can be a problem if you aren't paying attention. When I moved to NM, nobody warned me, and I had nose bleeds and swollen ankles. I used to tell all my foreign exchange students to drink, drin, and drink some more water!
Congrats on your successes. Most AFB's are pretty supportive. Hope you find New Mexico as super as we do.

Hello, I'm a sparker in Japan and I'm moving to Alamogordo in July. I wanted to get in this group to get some perspective on what's going on in New Mexico and was hoping to a get a little bit of a head start making some friends in the area. I'm A 32year old, prior service USAF, then married to the USAF, mom who's been raising kids for about 5 years and can't wait to get back into the workforce and finish my journey to my goal weight. I'm married to a wonderful and supportive man whose support has helped me lose about 40lbs in the last year. I have about 8lbs left to goal. I swim a 1000 meters 3 days a week and am just starting the couch to 5K program for running. I'm interesting in training for triathalons. I've hit my plataeu as far as weight loss but I'm going to begin to focus a little on gaining a bit more muscle to help me push through. I digress, please feel free to post anything that you may think helpful for transitioning to living in Southern NM. Also looking for non crazy folks who are mature and health motivated women (not looking for a date here) in the Holloman AFB area for buddies.
