Thank you Curves for giving me my life back

Curves saved my life. I arrived in Kerikeri April last year and rented a very small property whilst we looked for a house. Obtaining a visa was physically and emotionally draining which gave me a wonderful excuse to eat and drink to excess. Large portions of the wrong food and drink coupled with no exercise. The kgs piled on and I tried to ignore the fact I was just getting fatter and fatter and so, in the end, I ate and drank more. In the October I passed the Curves studio and was intrigued by their posters. I took the plunge and had a consultation with a charming lady called Marie. It was the turning point.

I joined and after a little nervous start I realised that Curves was going to turn the corner for me. On my first visit I weighed 77 kgs. With the support of Marie and her colleague Karen I followed a sensible diet, gave up alcohol and went to Curves three times a week. I now weigh 59 kgs and feel happy with myself, how I look and, in addition, my blood pressure has improved amazingly. Without Curves, I believe I would be still piling on the kgs. Thank you for giving me my life back.
