Greetings and salutations from the Red Stick, better known as Baton Rouge, La.
My name is Russel and I'm a SparkPeople retread. I joined a LONG time ago and never really followed up. I stayed tracking for about a month and then wandered off.
Then, in 2011, at 44 my doctor was brutally honest with me when I weighed 307 pounds, so I joined Weight Watchers and lost over 100 pounds. I lost motivation when they cancelled my meeting and never got back into the program so I cancelled my membership last week.
I joined SparkPeople again last week and started tracking today. I lost the weight with Weight Watchers, so I can lose the weight here. I'll need cheerleaders and people to hold me accountable.
My wife and I are both outdoors people. We're just not very active outdoors. We like geocaching and camping. I like hiking and hope to get back into running.
Finally, I'm hoping to have my blood pressure back under control soon. It was under control last November. I was doing so well, my cardiologist should have taken me off of one of the medications.
