I am 45 years young and have 5 children and 5 grand kids. When my weight reached 92 kg I knew this was not heading in the right direction. I had always been a negative person when it came to my body, judging what I saw in the mirror. I wouldn’t knowingly let anyone take photos of me but sometimes family managed to sneak one in from a distance. I was particularly self conscious of my arms and couldn’t entertain the thought of wearing a tank top. Through all of this, my husband always said he loved me and made me feel special but because I didn’t love myself I was not confident. I was suffering from Plantar Fasciitis in my feet and Carpal Tunnel in both hands. My joints were so stiff that when I bent down to a cupboard I had to drag myself back up. Even getting off the lounge was hard work. I felt like an old woman.
I knew this was no way to live so was determined to do something positive for me. Upon seeing a free Curves joining ad in the local paper, I rang our local gym and made an appointment. Gym owner Kerry set me goals and encouraged me to get active on the circuit. I began working out 4 to 6 times a week. I joined on the Curves Complete program to get the support I needed. My trouble was that with my busy life I was not eating enough. I soon found that by planning my day better I could manage the 3 meals and 2 snacks that Curves Complete recommended. The program truly worked! The weight started coming off steadily at around half a kilo to a full kilo a week. Kerry encouraged me to keep active by wearing a pedometer and striving for 10,000 steps a day. I found this to be a big key in keeping me motivated outside of the gym.
My starting weight was 92.6 kg, today I am just 71.6 kg the lightest I have been since having my twin girls in 2003. This year’s 12 Week Challenge gave me the extra boost to focus on losing the last 5 kg and I ended up winning the club challenge, something I am very proud of. I now love the feeling of being fit and am motivated to inspire other ladies through my achievements. I have an abundance of energy for my ‘busy’ day and love wearing tank tops and beautiful dresses. Curves has changed my life and I have formed wonderful friendships with other Curves ladies.
Hello from Pat,
At the start of 2018, I joined Curves. I was at a very low point in my life, having recently lost my husband and had broken my arm. I had to have surgery on the arm as it hadn't healed properly and left me out of action for nine months. My self-esteemwas very low and my mental and physical health was compromised. I saw the "CURVES" sign and on a whim, I joined up and"SAVED MY LIFE".I was welcomed with open arms and mychallenges were addressed by the wonderful staff. Back then I couldn't pick up a glass of water. Now I am fit and healthy, have lots of new Curvey friends, being able to manage my garden and household chores. I am once again active in the community attending with enthusiasm, Scottish Country Dancing twice a week, swimming, choir, I can even swing on the monkey bars. I will be 79 next birthday yet feel only 50 and have energy to play with my 9 great-grandchildren. Thank you Curves Gympie xx
