I feel like a new person
Before joining Curves, I was overweight, lethargic and depressed. We had just moved house and I was struggling with the stairs and life in general. Other issues of life were impacting my mental health and I felt rotten! I was working part time, but I knew I had to do something about my weight and my mental health or I was not going to be able to enjoy my new life near the lake.
My husband was very supportive as I signed up for Curves Complete at Morisset. The coaches were fantastic. I set my goals and talked to my husband about them. He was in full agreement and saw this as an opportunity to improve his own health. We changed our eating habits and quickly noticed how much better we both felt. I enjoyed going to Curves for my workouts and coaching sessions, as I felt that at last I was doing something for myself. I began losing weight, feeling stronger and healthier and my moods also improved. I could actually run up the stairs and chase the grandchildren when we went for a walk. (I couldn’t catch them though!)
After a few months, people at work started to notice and comment on my weight loss. Curves was definitely working for me. I started deliberately visiting Curves after a not – so – good – day at work. This helped a lot. Instead of going home and eating, I worked out, felt better physically and even more importantly, mentally. An added bonus was that my sleeping patterns improved. I hadn’t quite realised the size of the negative impact of poor sleeping. I was feeling like a new person! My husband was experiencing success with his weight loss and health journey too! I feel like I have achieved what I set out to achieve. Now I intend to maintain my healthier weight and keep an eye on my mental health by continuing with Curves. It makes me feel good about myself!
