My Curves Journey
I joined Curves Fulham Gardens in August 2016,I weighed over 100kg andat the time I was on multiple medications. After a few months I started the Curves Complete program where I really enjoyed eating 'normal' food - I had previously tried many diet programs and alternative eating plans. My 'go to' food for whenever I was feeling hungry and/or bored was usually cakes, biscuits & lollies. After approximately 5 months I was off Insulin, fluid tablets plus blood pressure tablets. I was losing weight regularly every week and I started to feel really good about myself - which in turn helped me to become more positive - plus the compliments I received were fantastic! Then in Ausut 2017 I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, thankfully I didn't require surgery as the cancer has already spread to my bones. With Chemotherapy in daily tablet form plus an injection once a month for my bones, I was told that had I not lost the weight I may not have noticed there was a problem! After a trial period of different medications & feeling pretty grotty, Icontinued to focus on losing weight & eating healthy. At the moment I am on Phase 3 of the Curves Complete plan to build up my metabolism and energy and it's working pretty well. My journey has been a difficult one ...but I have lost over 28 kilos and I am very eager to continue on the Curves Complete program to give me the best of staying as healthy as I possibly can - plus with Julie's motivational weekly meetings I am pretty sure I will reach whatever goals I set.
