Hi, my name is John and I have been a member of Spark since December of 09. Because of the most excellent start and great advice I received the first few weeks from my team leaders on this team I jumped at the chance to be a co leader when it was advertised. I have never made it a secret that without their guidance in the beginning I might have crashed and burned. So I believe in putting back and helping where you can help.
I am a positive, active person who is not afraid to share his ideas and opinions. I am an active member of The Spark Community Team, and A Spark People Motivator.
Since joining Spark I have lost approximately sixty four of the one hundred pounds I am determined to lose. My most recent accomplishment is that one short week ago today I ran my very first 5K.(Go me!!!)
It says we have over six thousand members on this team. Wow, imagine how cool it would be if we could tap into all of that wisdom. I am looking forward to learning much from all of you.
