Losing Weight, Finding Confidence

I've been asked to post a small motivational blurb about myself at my local Curves! What do you think about this?

My name is Sara and I've been a member of Curves since March 2005. I have always been overweight and unhappy about it. I'm a stay at home mom of 4 kids and wanted to be active with them and my husband. I never knew what to do about the weight other than complain in private, stay away from the picture takers at family events, and try to be invisible in public.

Since joining Curves, I'm thinner, having lost 26 inches and 22 pounds of body fat (that's like a whole three year old!) with an overall weight loss of almost 40 pounds. I have way more energy and am in the best shape of my life! I am more confident about myself than ever before and though I don't like exercise, my body sure does.

My ten year old daughter can't wait to turn 12 and come to Curves with mom – how's that for an encouraging statement! The kids all know not to mess with mom's Curves time. I even use the travel pass and go to Curves when we're out of town (my favorite feature). My husband has been inspired by my changing shape and good mood and has resumed his own fitness regimen.

I will never not belong to Curves, which provided the means and encouragement for my healthier lifestyle. You can do it, too!

Congrats on the weight loss--I, too, love curves. I've been going for a year and a half now. I think you do plateau there, but I have enjoyed the added tone.
