These photo's were taken at work the day of my first day at Curves for Women

The last little while I have come to the conclusion that my weight is really affecting my life. So I decided to change that, with the help of some very important people. My Father is the main reason for me getting up enough courage to face the facts and change. He also is giving me the opportunity to go to the gym, by getting me a membership to Curves for women. Secondly, to my loving boyfriend who has supported me though thick and thin, no pun intended. He is always there for me when I want to try a new diet and it fails like very diet does. But I think at the end of the day, when all is said and done, it is me that is the driving force. It was very hard for me to face the fact that I am very over weight and I need to change my life.

Finding a gym that fit me was the hard part. I wanted to do my research make sure that I was going to like it. I am very low self esteem and I hate, absolutely hate sweating. So I found Curves for Women, and I love it. It is everything I wanted and more in a gym. There is only girls there no guys to make you nervous. The work out is already planned for you, you don’t have to worry about what machine you should be using. And the people are fantastic, they are so nice and wonderful. The first time I went I knew, I fell in love with the atmosphere and the people.

I have now been going to Curves for just over a month now and the results are in. I have lost 3 pounds and lost -3.50 inches. my BMI is down -3.39. I have gotten over my sweating problem and now I just work out and have fun.

I would like to thank everyone for there love and comments. Here is one from one of my readers:

And I know its not easy. But you can do hard things. You have to believe that. And when your ready to change your life you will. I'm sure you've heard it before 'its not a DIET its a lifestyle change But its so true. If you want to lose weight and keep it off you have to change the way your living your life. Make the changes small, this is not going to happen over night. But each small change will build on the one before. It has to be changes you can live with because if you ever go back to your old way of living the weight will come back.
Your comments matter to me, every word! So thank you for being here for me.

Hope everyone is enjoying there summer.
Bye for now.


  1. Hey Girl,

    Good for you for saying all of this out loud and showing how much you appreciate yourself and showing everyone that it is possible to change and to get over your fears and accomplish all you set out to do.

  2. Hey Sweetie. You have always been able to overcome any and all adversities in your life. Your reader is correct saying it is a life style change; not just a diet. It is no different than dealing with an addiction of any sort ( and I know that one very well ). I have had to make many changes in my life to improve my quality, and quantity of life. The one thing that I will never change is the amount of love and respect that I have for you. Keep up the good work. Thinking of you always !


I love comments! Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you think!
