My name is Chad and I am 37 years old. I live in Houma, La approximately 60 miles from New Orleans. I've recently made some lifestyle changes under recommendation from my doctors. I am diabetic and have issues with cholesterol and blood pressure. Basically, my doctors told me if I do not make some immediate lifestyle changes I will likely have a stroke or heart attack within the next 10-15 years. My main motivation is my 5 year old daughter, Chloe. I want to be around long enough to see her blossom into a successful, happy woman. Another motivation is losing my father to a heart attack when he was 45 years old. I do not want to go down the same path that he did.
My current goal is to lose 43 pounds to get down to an even 200 pounds. Another goal is to get healthy enough to not require medicine for diabetes, cholesterol and blood pressure. I was recently taken off of my diabetes medication and I go back to see my heart doctor in 4 months. Hopefully, he will take me off of the cholesterol and blood pressure medicine as well.
I am tracking my nutrition on this site. I run 3-5 miles a day 3 days a week and I do strength training 3 days a week.

I have a bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering Technology from Nicholls State University. I'm married and have a 5 year old daughter. My hobbies include fishing, playing guitar, golf, hunting, camping, playing pool, playing cards and getting together with family and friends for cookouts.
Music: I listen to rock n roll, heavy metal, blues, classical guitar and some country.

Sports: My favorite sport to watch on tv is football. Go Saints! I've also been in fantasy football leagues for the past 15 years or so. As a child my favorite sport to play was baseball but I also played basketball and soccer.

Hey Chad. Honestly, I haven't played enough courses along the Gulf Coast to have a favorite. I've played a few courses in Florida for a tournament one time, but that's about it. I lived in California for 30 years, so most of my experience is on the West Coast. I've played in California, Hawaii, Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, Missouri, and Florida.
There are plenty of good courses down your way, I just haven't had a chance to play them!
