My weight-loss story began the way so many do: I wanted to lose weight and get healthy. Diabetes and heart disease run in my family, and I have been borderline diabetic for several years, so I joined Curves. I quickly learned that it is not a fad – it is a lifestyle.
I have tried several fad diets and weight-loss programs, and not one of them worked. Curves teaches you that you can eat the foods you like and lose weight – the key is moderation. Before Curves, I worked out on a treadmill and tried a DVD exercise program, but they were so boring. I had to force myself to do them. Curves is anything but boring. The coaches and members are so encouraging. Simply put, Curves has become a regular part of my day.
I have experienced plateaus along the way, but my coach helped me break through every one of them successfully. Since I joined in July of 2013, I have lost 80 lbs.*** and I look better and feel better about myself. My health, energy, and lifestyle have all improved. My blood sugar levels are good, and I have more stamina. I can walk long distances without panting and puffing. I can do anything I want to do without worrying about running out of steam. I am now within three pounds to my goal weight, and I know I will achieve my goal.
Going to Curves is the smartest thing I have ever done for myself. Staying with Curves is the right answer for me.
