Learning to Lose

Hi, y'all! My friends call me Reb, so please do! :) I'm 36, and have been married for 12 years, and have an 11 year old daughter with Cystic Fibrosis. I teach middle school vocal and classroom music to a little over 500 kids each week.

My highest weight ever was December 2005 - the Christmas after Hurricane Katrina. I weighed 321 pounds back then.

I joined Curves in 2006 weighing 306 pounds.
I re-started my weight loss journey, and got serious about losing ...

My highest weight ever was December 2005 - the Christmas after Hurricane Katrina. I weighed 321 pounds back then.

I joined Curves in 2006 weighing 306 pounds.
I re-started my weight loss journey, and got serious about losing weight March 24, 2008. I weighed 301 pounds, and had been walking on a cane for over two years.

Today, I no longer use a cane to walk, and haven't since May 2008, after losing the first twenty pounds. :)

I made lifetime membership with Weight Watchers in September 2009 weighing 130 lbs.


I'm working my way back to being a free Lifetime Member with Weight Watchers. I love going to the meetings, but going for free would even be better. :)

I do spinning 3 days a week, run on the elliptical 4 days a week, and one night week I attend yoga, Zumba, step aerobics and pump class. I also work with weights and strength training 5-6 days a week.

I am learning to play the guitar as my new non-exercise, non-food related hobby! :) I already sing, play piano, trumpet, xylophones, and drums, so this is next on my list! :)











I have been counting WW points daily since March 24th,2008.

I do journal, but not food...I journal how I feel each day about what I did, or what I need to do.

I do not eat after 7pm at night. I still try really hard to stick to this.

And, that's it. :) That's how I'm losing the weight. :)

I chose this title, because for me, it is about re-learning from old habits, and learning HOW to lose weight healthy, and purely from my own determination (read:stubborness and sassiness).

I want to be around a long, long time for my "mini me".

Also, in the end it would be nice to be "one hot mama"....lol. :)

Made goal at Curves June 1,2009 - 136 lbs.

Made Lifetime Membership at Weight Watchers - September 5th - 130lbs.

Great job on the Summer Challenge so far. Let's keep pushing to the end. Hope your summer has been all that you hoped.
