I am a 64-year old pastor of an interdenominational church that meets under a tree in Nashville, GA. I have recently made a re-commitment to SparkPeople in order to readdress my need for weight loss. A recent diagnosis of lower body lymphedema has caused me to once again realize the importance of physical exercise more than ever. Part of the treatment for lymphedema includes exercise that promotes lymphatic flow, fluid reduction, and a balanced and moderate lifestyle. These are all things that SparkPeople offered me from my membership started in 2016. I am thankful that I had the knowledge of this community to have a source for information at this important time in my life.

Member Since: 7/27/2016

Fitness Minutes: 16,727

My Goals:
My first goal is to no longer be considered as "morbidly obese." A second goal will be to have the final weight goal of 199 lbs. I have lost from the initial weight of 335 to 285. I would also like to be an inspiration to others who have various disabilities who are committed to weight management and healthy living.


My Program:
My program consists of treatment at Rehabilitation Services of Tifton, a lymphedema treatment center. I also am fortunate to have the assistance of a certified dietitian/nutritionist through the VA MOVE program in Valdosta, Georgia. I also have the future resource of Physical Therapy for back and legs for continued physical motivation.



Personal Information:
I have been married to my beautiful wife, Sharon, for 29 years and have a son, a daughter, and seven grandchildren. I am a linguist, a global educator, a song writer-musician, and Bible teacher across multiple linguistic platforms.


Other Information:
My formal studies include an A.A. in Journalism, a B. I.S. in Anthropology, Languages, and Biblical Studies, a M.T.S. in Biblical Interpretation, and most of the requirements accomplished for a Ph.D. in Global Education. My academic writings appear on https://www.researchgate.net/profile/John_

    The greatness of a moment happens when we separate ourselves from our circumstances and see the moment for what it truly is: joy, loss, lesson, learning, failure, and truth. Victoria Trabosh

    Drop a stone in the water and the ripple moves outwardly from the center to create larger circles. Everything moves outwardly from our center as well, and our center is our heart. Barry Goldstein.
