My name is Rebecca. Dennis and I have been married for 12 years and have no children. I have lived in Lakeland Florida for 21 years, from Ohio. I am at my all time heavy weight and am determined to get back to where I was 2 years ago.

It was June two years ago when I was only 5 pounds away from my goal weight and went into menopause!!!! I almost immediately lost my desire to exercise, hot flashes and night sweats caused me to lose sleep and therefore had no energy to exercise. With in the first couple of months I gained a few pounds, then my favorite jeans were now my least favorite! Before I knew it, I had gained 15 pounds and was now at my HIGHEST weight EVER!!!! Now I am pushing 170#. My normal adult weight was always 150, my low was 134, my goal was 129. Now I am almost 40# from my goal and it is harder than ever. I thought 10# to lose was bad, this is going to be the hardest thing I have ever had to do.

The best thing is (unfortunately) I am unemployed and with no kids have all the time in the world to commit to doing it this time. The worse thing is I have all day to eat and be lazy. This is going to be a real challenge!!!!!

To top it all off, I used to own a womens fitness center until 3 months ago. How lame am I?

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

This time I have DECIDED to make make the commitment. COMMITTED to success and SUCCEEDING in my goals.

Member Since: 6/3/2009

My Goals:
To get back to 130 by December 3, 2009. I have an annual family reunion with all of my sisters (6) in Gatlinburg and I really want them to be proud of me for what I have done. They all know how much I have gained and I was always one of the smaller ones!

My Program:
I have a walking buddy and I used to walk with her every day! Now we are just getting back to it. I also want to work out at Kelly Rec center on the treadmill (used to love it), do weights and do my yoga and Beach Body DVD at home.

Personal Information:
I live in Lakeland, Fl. Married to my husband for 12 years and no children. My email is : I need all the help I can get!!!

When I meet my goal, we are going on a cruise. Every 10 pounds I will reward myself with mini rewards. 1. Haircut/color 2. Tattoo 3. Day Spa 4. Cruise.

Other Information:
I have always wanted to do a Triathalon and was going to do it in September this year. But.... with gaining so much weight there is no way that it even looks like an option for me anymore. I guess that would really be the ultimate goal. It is what they call a sprint and something like a 1/4 mile swim, 5 mile bike ride and 3 mile run. Not too difficult, but seemed much easier a year ago!!

    Our next team walk is Saturday, March 5th at 9:00am. We willl meet at the north end of the public library parking lot on Lake Morton. There is ample opportunities here as the slow ones of us can walk as the "speedier" ones can run or jog or even go around more than once. Each lap is 1 mile. The streets are calm, quiet, shady, as well as stroller and wheelchair friendly. And, if for some reason you are unable to walk, you can just feed the ducks and cheer the rest of us on....please show your team spirit by attending this wonderful time of being able to encourage your fellow teammates! See you there!!! P.S. ALL WALKS ARE OPEN TO PEOPLE OF ALL AGES so, bring your families, friends and join in the fun!
