University of Mississippi Faculty + Staff

Rebel Well has helped improved my health in several areas.  First, since the end of May, I have lost two pant sizes.  Along with Pari (our Rebel Well trainer) I attended the health fair during the summer and got current information regarding my basic health (blood pressure, weight, flexibility, heart rate).  Soon thereafter, Pari, our trainer, attended a training session and brought back a formula that used your weight  in order to find out how many calories you were having to eat to maintain your weight or lose 1 pound per week. By using this one piece of information combined with the walking challenges, I have been able to consistently, but slowly lose weight….and I’m still losing.

The best part is that it hasn’t felt like a chore; in fact, it has had the effect of team building in our department as we have supported each other in becoming healthier!  Thanks RebelWell keep up the good work!”

-Catherine Hultman, Program Coordinator, UM Online Design and eLearning

 

“RebelWell definitely motivated me to reach my daily walking goals!  I really enjoyed keeping up with my progress on the Walking Challenge Log.  I’m still hanging in there and try to walk every morning before work.”

Hillary Goulding, Assistant to the Dean, UM Patterson School of Accountancy

 

“The daily walking habits that our department developed during the RebelWell daily walking initiative ingrained a pattern of regular walking for many of us in the department.”

-Randy Uncapher, Instructional Technology Designer, UM Online Design and eLearning

 

“I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed all of the events of the Holiday Challenge. I have learned a lot about nutrition and healthy eating. It has help me change my daily eating habits.”

“I love being a RebelWell Champion and promoting and sharing the healthy activities and workshops sponsored by RebelWell in our office. We participated in the Spring and Fall Walking Challenges and won the latter boosting our morale and motivating our office further to continue with daily healthy activities for a minimum of 30 minutes each. Besides the challenges, we have also enjoyed talks and workshops hosted by RebelWell along with the Nutrition department on campus and learned a lot about not just healthy activities, but also healthy eating and stress relief in our daily lives.

I am a huge fan of the program and hope that it continues to grow and spread health and wellness among all OleMiss employees!”
