I joined Curves....yipee. I finally crossed that line. You know that line, it's the one that makes you change something in your life. It just clicked. I would have thought the large stack of clothes that don't fit anymore would have done it.
The day I signed up I almost fell over at my weight...the highest ever, even with 4 pregnancies. I full year of commitment. Good for me. The woman there asked me how much weight I wanted to lose. That was dangerous, I said a loose size 12.
I'd be happy there and I promise I wouldn't complain about my weight or call myself fat. All my clothes would fit and I could cross my legs again without the top leg being somewhere near my shoulder.
I recently saw a picture of me in my loose size 12's, eye-yi-yi, and I thought I was grossly grotesque. Someone slap me.
I get measured after 2 more visits. XXXXX those are my fingers and toes crossed

Congratulations!! Curves works...I can attest to that. I lost over 60LBs a couple of years ago. I went regularly for 2 years. I need to join again, as I have gained back probably 20 LBs. I am not at that "place" yet.... I also dieted - but the regular workouts gave me the motivation to do so. So...Good for you! You Go Girl!! :)

Good for you! I know what you mean about needing something to click. I just did as well and have started cutting back and trying to eat healthier (and a lot less). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you. I too am trying to get in to a size 12 - I have a long way to go but you give me additional encouragement.
