WESTHAMPTON - A Cutchogue man who dropped more than 200 pounds is kayaking around Long Island to inspire others who are struggling with their weight. Dr. Russ L'HommeDieu cut through the water in Westhampton today on the second day of his trip, which began in Montauk. His goal is to kayak 275 miles around Long Island in hopes of raising awareness and funds for the American Diabetes Association. L'HommeDieu says he had pre-diabetes and weighed 410 pounds 10 years ago. The physical therapy doctor says he lost more than 200 pounds a decade ago and has since kept the weight off. L'HommeDieu expects to wind things up in Montauk on Sept. 15.To see more footage of L'HommeDieu kayaking around Long Island, click News 12 Extra on Optimum TV channel 612.
