      I start my day at 7:30 am with my ½ hour exercise session at Curves. I have to work hard to get my heart rate to the 70-80% range. But, it hasn’t always been this way. I was never coordinated as a child and hated p.e. classes in school. After having two children, I failed to lose the weight I gained with my pregnancies. And,

      about 10 years ago, I learned that I had fibromyalgia, an inflammatory auto-immune disease.

      When I started exercising at Curves several years ago, I was hardly able to move because of fibromyalgia. Each exercise session sent me to bed that day and the next but I was determined to work though the stiffness and pain. Perseverance has paid off! I am less stiff, more flexible,

      • stronger, and walking is so much easier! I’ve lost forty-five pounds, my blood pressure is normal and although the doctor considers me to be “pre-diabetic”, my blood sugar levels are well within normal. My balance and coordination are better and I look better in my clothes.

        I’ve read that exercise should be fun and it is at Curves! I love the activities and the friendships I’ve made. Having

        an exercise buddy who counts on my being there motivates me and holds me accountable.

        If there’s anything I can say to young mothers, it would be to put your health and fitness first, eat healthfully, and exercise regularly. Had I followed this advice, I would be in a different place than I am today. But, with Curves, I’m on my way to a healthier and fitter “me”!
