Curves

Posted on: 11/19/2007

My NEW SELF!

When a friend and I visited Curves in January 2005 she thought it was completely ridiculous to think that without weights you would be able to get a full body workout- so we left there and went to Bruster's. I kept thinking about it and decided in Feburary to call and see about joining. I joined in early March 2005. I was tired of being the "heavy set" girl and tired of looking at the person I saw in the mirror. I have faithfully participated in the circuit 3x a week and I watched what I was eating daily. TO date I have lost 58.2 inches and 69 lbs and have gained a new found confidence and complete new self. I am in the best shape of my life! I am completely off all medication for asthma and have no pain in my knee. I would encourage anyone to participate 3x a week and watch what you eat and welcome the new person in you that emerges. The workout at curves is efficent exercise and a total body workout from head to toe. The workout has shapped my body and bought out my great CURVES. Plus Curves is so fun, fast and effective I would highly recommend it to any woman looking for a safe environment and a fun way to get in shape. I know you will find your NEW SELF too!

CURVES FOR WOMEN

Posted on: 11/19/2007

Now I am STRENGTHENING WOMEN!

I hate to exercise, I have never had to until now. I started to research my options to lose weight and I knew dieting wasn't enough, I had to get exercising. I heard Curves was a womens only gym and I had just received a coupon in the mail so I called and joined on my first appointment. That was 35 lbs ago Feb. and I have gone from a size 16 to a size 8. I have given away all my fat pants and I am now strengthening women and encouraging them to stop thinking and get started. Curves is FUN and I am still amazed that in just 30 minutes 3x a week and taking their Curves six week solution class I have almost reached my goals. My life has changed so much since the first day I joined and not only have i lost weight and inches, I have gained a Curves family. Curves took an overweight, uncertain, depressed, stressed out young woman and turned her into a much smaller and much more confident DIVA who now believes in herself and can motivate others to believe in themselves too. I can actually say, I LOVE EXERCISE.

Curves for Women

Posted on: 11/19/2007

The SHRINING WOMAN

I come from a large family. I couldn't stick to diets and my weight-challenged cousin researched a nearby Curves for me. I limped along when I first joined but my looming health problems finally kicked me into gear. I go faithfully 3x a week and am counting the pounds that are falling away. I no longer dread trying to fit into a seat on a plane, or sitting in a booth at a restaurant. I use to limit my social activities because I was so embarrassed. I'm smaller now than I was when I was in high school and have gone from 360 lbs to 217 lbs. I no longer have to take blood pressure medication and my confidence has soared as my waistline has slimmed down. I know the struggle all to well, and it really makes me feel good to know that I might inspire someone who may not otherwise be able to do it. Thanks to Curves I am nearly half the woman I use to be.
