Hi... My name is Sandy and I have been overweight since grade school. I have tried every diet in the world and have found out that no diet works...changing my habits do. Spark has helped me keep the focus of my new found healthy lifestyle and working with the BLC team really helps me as well. I was at my highest weight of 268 pounds (how did that happen). and now trying to get back to my goal of 165. Even thought I gained some weight back...I did not go near my starting weight like I have in the past and now I am losing again. WooHoo

If you have not noticed...I love Goofy and am often called GoofySmertz. I have had a "thing" for Goofy ever since he pinched my butt at Disney World when I was in college (before the days of that being considered harassment) Plus, I do have a "goofy" personality. So it is a match made in heaven.

I joined the Biggest Loser Challenge on sparkpeople and found that BLC- is a great place to face your stuggles and get support head on. The best thing about the group is they have a variety of teams to meet what ever your needs may be..

I have a sarcastic personality and believe you can have lots of fun while developing good habits for our overall well being.

Personal Information:
They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-haaa!
Remember when you ran away
And I got on my knees
And begged you not to leave
Because I'd go berserk?
Well. . .
You left me anyhow
And then the days got worse and worse
And now you see I've gone
Completely out of my mind
And. . .
They're coming to take me away, HA HA
They're coming to take me away, HO HO HEE HEE HA HA
To the funny farm
Where life is beautiful all the time
And I'll be happy to see
Those nice, young men
In their clean, white coats
And they're coming to take me away, Ha-haaa!

You thought it was a joke
And so you laughed
You laughed when I had said
That losing you would make me flip my lid
Right. . .
You know you laughed, I heard you laugh
You laughed, you laughed and laughed
And then you left
But now you know I'm utterly mad!
And. . .
They're coming to take me away, HA HA
They're coming to HO HO HEE HEE HA HA

Other Information:
Beware of my flying monkeys...don't give them beer.

    Hi. I am in Texas, not York but I know there is a walking club in your area if you are interested in participating in local events on a regular basis. I do similar walks every weekend. We are not "fund raising" clubs, we are for fun, fitness and fellowship. Our clubs are family oriented and most events are baby stroller, and pet friendly. Our object is to keep a record book and collect a stamp for each event that we do. I've done over a 1000 of the 10K events in Texas and in 46 other states. Here is the information on your local club:

    Club Name: York White Rose Wanderers
    Address: PO Box 7683
    City: York
    State: PA
    Zip: 17404-0683
    Contact: Tom Jackson
    Phone: (717) 267-9387
