On September 6th, 2016 I made a document on how I was going to improve my number one leadership flaw. It was my health. On that day I weighed 315 pounds. On September 6th, 2017 I weighed 215 pounds. 100 hundred pounds in one year exactly. I am thankful for all that helped me and encouraged me along the way. I would like to thank my amazing wife, Amy Alderman Russell (who has almost lost 50 pounds too), Pastor Terry, Jim Wideman, Lance McKinnon, W Kenneth Hancock III, and Corey Jones. I would also like to give a huge thank you to Debbie Portell, Mike Stout, and everybody at Integrity Training Systems. At the start of this I tried to do it on my own. I found a program that helped jump start me. But after losing a quick 30 pounds I started to gain it back. I really believe God led me to find Integrity Training Systems. I loved what they said. I got brave enough and went to workout with Mike. I was hooked, however my nutrition was a wreck. I was getting in shape but not losing any weight. Finally I started doing nutrition with Debbie. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. I learned what to eat and how to eat and I believe for the long term. They have all become friends. They care for their clients. If you struggle with your weight, fitness, or nutrition give Integrity a call. They can help you if you want to help yourself. Am I done…no. Next goal is under 200 pounds by 2018.
