Time for a new me!

I am a 29 year old SAHW just looking to get healthier. I have fought my weight most of my life. I've lost weight before, but as a result of an illness or medication I've never had to work for it like I am now. On October 25, 2007 I started my journey by watching portion control and cutting out junk food. Then after losing a few pounds I decided to start walking. In Feb 2008 I started running. Now I'm setting my sights on a 1/2 marathon 9/28/08!

I believe you can become a goonie and get back to the way you were and we can help on my email i might have posted it wrong but there is know doubt that the subject matter it was intended for you because I believe you are a Goonie and I know we can help you.

CHUNKSTER63 & TAMMYP123 Leaders of "Calling all Goonies" As we Stand and Band Together

Hi, Chunk here (John) & Tammy and were Calling all Goonies To Band and Stand Together and here is our story & a little about us.

Please don't let the title mislead you. This is still a group that is committed to losing weight in 2008. Are Members are Awesome!!

"Calling all Goonies", you may not be familiar with, but Calling all Goonies is the name of the group and if you
have seen the movie then you know what Iím talking about. If however, you have not seen the movie please check it out.

It tells the story of a band of Goonies (curious, adventurous, daring lads) who come together to reach a goal (find a treasure). This is what Calling All Goonies is about.
So, we are Telling you this Story because Tamy & I have been with Sparkpeople for a while now and there are definite times We get stuck in a rut too and far more often than we would like. So I decided to take it upon my self to create a new Group called: "Calliní all Goonies" The idea came from the Movie The Goonies and why; for the simple reason we too want to reach our goal and find the treasure, because I believe each of us is a treasure, Have a treasure buried within that we have been struggling with for so long to find.

So that is what Tammy & I are doing; asking people to help people bond together to make this the best year for losing weight. We already have members that come from a long line of support and determination. So the pillars/foundation are in place. Now we just need to build our house pound by pound to reach are weight loss goals. So if you want to lose weight and feel great in 2008 it's up to you. Please come and join.

Just click on Our page then come join the team. My page name is Chunkster63 & Tammy is TAMMYP123

You may find that a lot of members and teams are all tied into one another this is a good thing because we get the positive from all around us.

Chunk
Tammy
