Hi everyone. No, I haven't abandoned you...Just been very busy..a lot of stuff happening. All is well though even though I have bronchitis AGAIN! Darn it! Back on antibiotics. I just had it in Dec. Just wanted to touch base. Have a great weekend.

Hi all. Does anyone know what kind of changes will be coming to Curves in January.
I just started a one month free trial at a location that may or may not be closing. I think that's why they were offering the free month, to try to drum up business.

I like the program and the machines. I hope any changes they make are good ones...

Curves will be going through changes in the next 6-12 months. It will be interesting to see how many of the clubs follow thru. Post any changes you see in your club : )

We are going into the holidays season and I was wondering how many of you have a plan to lose or not to gain during this time or do you just wing it and hope for the best come Jan1.

Hi Guys,
Just got word this afternoon my Dad passed away. I am so glad I got to see him in July for his 93 b-day. You can see his picture with the family on my Spark Page. I'm waiting to hear back from my brothers and then find a flight to Pa.It's been exactly 2 yrs and 2 weeks since my Mom died. Dad's wanted to be with her ever since and now he is. Praise God! He is happy now. He was a wonderful Dad and a great man. He will be missed.

I don't think we have the smart system in our Curves. I will ask tonight when I go work out. The owner mentioned I should check out Curves Complete, but it cost $199 for 90 days. I am tracking my food on SP and doing well with that so far. I know for me it all comes down to consistency.

Good for you ! The key to Curves as with any program is consistency. Are you on the Curves smart system ? I recommend it to everyone who goes to Curves do the Curves Smart it was designed for a reason. I have had members that have actually turned their card back in because the workout was to hard or they just didn't want a machine telling them what to do. Ughh.

Hi, I'm new to the team and I also just re-joined Curves. I was a member 3 years ago and lost 60 pounds. I have gained 40 back, so I am back at my Curves and loving it again! My first workout was this past Sat. I plan on going 3-4 times a week.

I'll ask about it again. Thanks for the update. This was the co-manager of the Curves I go to that told me that.

Actually the vitamins and protein powder is better than most on the market. The powder was just reformulated and because of their research team at Baylor university they determined that the old one which was made with soy was not as good as a powder made with whey, so now curves uses whey. The vitamins are the same research. Curves really does the best when it comes to women nutrition.

Hi Judy,
I was asking someone at Curves about the protein powder and she said if we eat a healthy diet we really don't need it. I don't think their vitamins would be any better than a good one a day vitamin or whatever you take.

Did my 4th workout for the week this morning. Almost didn't make it as I had misplaced my truck keys! I went to put them along side my purse on the bookshelf and I guess they fell off 'cause I found then sticking out under the shelf. So I got to Curves after all in time to meet my 2 friends there.

Had to buy a new blender today as mine finally gave up the ghost at 5 years old. I tried a new smoothie tonight and it was delicious. 1 cup of cantaloupe, 1 cup of LF vanilla yogurt and 6 ice cubes. It was so good. A new way to eat melon.

Did my 30 min this am too. Three of us went for coffee just 2 doors down from Curves. I try to get to Curves 3 and sometimes 4 times a week. Mon, Tues, Wed, and Fridays.

Hello everyone. It's been 3 months since our Curves closed. A prior member just opened a new fitness center and has a circuit to workout. I have been going now a week. She did my weight and measurements as she had the old curves book. I had lost 10" and 3 lbs since March 2, 2012. Boy was I surprised on the inches emoticon . I have started pilates 2 classes a week also, will be looking to lose more inches!!!!!! I work the circuit 3 times a week.

I am doing my last Curves Zumba workout tonight. I have to leave Curves because my bad RA hands can no longer cope with gripping and reefing on those machines, feels like something is going to tear or break, they are very delicate and riddled with osteo, so quite fragile without much bone mass remaining. I can still rock my cardio workouts at the fitness centers and do my elliptical and bike and DVD'a at home, so no shortage of options..
I wish you all the best and enjoy your Curves! I had a wonderful one with an active manager who thought up all kinds of neat challenges and give aways for our club. It was the most popular by far in my city. Will miss them!!
Good luck with your goals!

Hearing that, its amazing you trusted going to another Curves after that experience Linda.
I really enjoyed my Curves Zumba this morning -they have changed up the music and the dance moves were quite advanced and fast -really challenging. It turns out I should have one more Curves Zumba workout -I didn't know when you bought a group of twenty they gave you a bonus one..

Janey - the first Curves I joined, in Florida, did the same thing. We all thought that we were going to be going to a Curves/Zumba workout. We arrived with a note on the door that it was closed permanently. Very frustrating.

Wow! So sorry Janey :( You wouldn't think a national franchise would behave like that :((
I did Curves Zumba this morning, was lots of fun. But this is my last month though. I am quitting Curves because I am having trouble with my hands, and gripping those machine handles are hurting them :( I have a free pass to my city's liesure centers because of my low income, so I will make more use out of them.

Surprise, and not in a good way. I went to Curves today and found it closed permanently. All machines gone and signs down in the windows. Guess they must have packed up and left over the weekend.

One day of recovery won't hurt you scrappygrammy, hope its better today. Water has never been a problem for me, its pretty much all I drink and as I enjoy morning exercise, I usually get 14 cups in by noon. Nothing more refreshing then water :) Missed Curves Zumba yesterday, it was cancelled :( Been having trouble with leg cramping caused by my bad RA toes triggering it. Nothing I can do, as I take a multvitamin on top of extra calcium and vit D. My rheumy has to come up with a solution for me, I have already had foot surgery once on one foot and twice on the other that helped with it, but its back again, the fix sure didn't last long, only eight years..
Hope you all have a Fantastic Friday and a great weekend!

To add the water goal, click on CURVY Crew above then go to bottom of page to add a team goal. then just keep your water record on your nutrition page, as usual, and it will update your team goal.

Sorry I didn't make it on yesterday. I didn't make it to Curves, either. I wasn't feeling well so I came home, made and ate supper, drank a cup of "herba tusin" tea with ginger, and went to bed at 5:30; awakened at 8:30 thinking it was time to get up, LOL, then went back to bed and slept until 5 a.m. Feel better this morning but still not tops.

So sorry to hear your Curves is closing Ruth :( Mine is only a 15 minute walk away and the only one on the East side of town where I live, but fortunately, its the most active with the most members and is showing no signs of slowing down.
I drink lots of water as a rule because that is the only beverage I will drink other than my raw green tea. By noon, I will have drunk 14 cups worth, not sure what that is in ounces, as Sparks tracks cups that is how I measure them.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Closest Curves is 45+ miles away. When weather gets better I will start walking again.
The water challenge sounds good, I'm in.

Hi girls! Hope everyone is doing well. How are we doing with the water intake? Is everyone getting at least 64 ounces of water every day? Should we do a challenge on water? How about a challenge a week to create a little interest? If you all agree water is a challenge, we'll do that, if not, we'll choose something else. You let me know what we need.

Keep up the good work!

So sorry your Curves is closing, Ruthden1. No way! I have to do Curves so I don't gain my weight back. I guess I would find something else if ours did close. Is there not another one close enough? I know when I go to Kissimmee, Florida to visit DD, I have to drive more than 2X the distance that I have to drive here in rural central PA. Best wishes finding something.

Linda, I do scrapbooking, hence the name. I was working on some embellishments to sell and decided on that as my name.

I plan to be around at least 3 times a week. emoticon

On Friday I got word that our Curves is closing. March 2nd is the last day. Boy I will miss everyone there, my workout buddies. I'll have to get into another workout routine. I have been with Curves for over 9 years.:-(:-( :-(.

Welcome back SCRAPPYGRAMMY _Love the nickname :) I have finally got the clearance to go back to Curves and do ALL the machines, even the hip abductor adductor!! My physiotherapist said she has never seen anyone recover so fast and strong from a total hip replacement and with the full range of motion that I have :) March 1st is the day!! can't wait!!
Have a wonderful wacky Wednesday! Our Curves switches the direction of the circuit on Wednesdays :)

I'm back. I see my last post was May 12! I have continued getting to Curves 3X a week - until Nov, I had not missed 3X a week in 18 months. Slacked off and got only 2 to 3 times in Nov, Dec, then in Jan, I got permission to drive my school van to Curves at the beginning of my route so I have a regular time.

My DD2 got married in July then I started working a lot more hour then the hurricane in Sept caused some serious flooding in our area and my Internet service has been on the blink ever since. My computer is in the shop right now and I'm supposed to get it back in the next couple of days with the Internet working. I'm using DH's laptop today since he forgot to take it to work.

It's good to be back. I'm glad to see a couple of old friends and some new ones. I'll do my best to be a regular "attendee" here.

Went to Curves today. Was a bit leary after getting sick afterward on Friday. Decided it was probably an electrolyte imbalance. Taking Gatorade with me from now on just in case. The workout was great, and didn't get sick.

I too, love the music at Curves. Really gets me going.

Linda - I also am not doing the Curves Smart since my shoulder surgery a few months ago. My surgeon also told me I have to skip the shoulder machines. I miss it but know that I am still doing good things for my body to do what I can. I also have gotten back to Zumba which I really like a lot. We have it three times per week but somedays more show up than others. I think that if more members don't participate, the Curves center I attend, will decrease the Zumba workouts.

Great work everyone! I love the music at Curves too, especially when they have ABBA Fridays :) The Zumba was a great addition to the workouts, we have it twice a week. I am still on surgical hold from my latest, I have had a year layoff (three surgeries last year) and am sure missing it :( The T-Shirt they have for 500 is really cool. I sometimes wonder if I will ever get to it as I will have more surgeries coming up :( I did Curves Smart for a while, but then decided I didn't need the extra expense as I always push myself hard each work out and don't need a computer to tell me how hard I am working. Unlike a lot of people, I am sweating after my workout and I take a long time to stretch out after. The key to not having muscle soreness is a good long stretch, most women ignore it or hardly spend any time at all stretching -takes 15-30 sec for a good stretch on each hold..

MiRanda,
The cool things about curves is that all the machines are hydraulic so you don't have the wear and tear on your muscles like free weights or other weights you have to adjust.
Keep up the good work but go slow for now : ) before you know you'll be burning calories like crazy.

Glad to know I didn't overdo it yesterday on my first day of curves. : ) I thought for sure I would hurt all over today but I didn't. My hands did hurt. Have no idea what that was about. Went again today. Day 2 down. Many more to go.

If your not doing the curves smart you really are missing out. Get in there and get your key ! : ) It made a world of difference for me. It came in three steps for me, first curves then curvessmart and now the m2. All three of these were tools to get me moving and staying healthy. Curves has been a great addition to my life but what it comes down to it, you get what you put into it.

Holly- The Curves Complete program is the same at my Mississippi Curves. (for non members I think it is $299. I can't afford it right now but I am hoping in a couple of months I will be able to do it. I really need the accountability, too.

I have never done the Curves Smart system. I am thinking of trying it. It bothers me not knowing how many calories I am burning.... Does anyone else do it on here? Has it helped you?

Happy New Year everyone! I wish I knew what could be done to get more people involved in this team! I am back home with my high speed internet and quite happy again -I some days where my Step dad's slow internet wouldn't work on my little lap top. My recovery was going fast up until I got a lot of painful muscle soreness from all the exercies my physiotherapist gave me. I guess she thought I was in good enough shape to handle it, but the truth is, I was more a cardio junkie and didn't do enough on strength training and am now paying for it. I also had an eight week layoff prior to and recovering from the surgery and you lose muscle tone so very quickly when you aren't exercising. The biggest concern is not dislocating the hip, so some of the machines at Curves are too risky for me to use, and it might be a year before I would be allowed to use them again!
I hoep your New Year is fabulous and you accomplish your goals!

It seems that the CurvesComplete plan is a little different here up in Canada. It costs $199.00 for 3 months access to the site. It includes meal planning, shopping lists, weekly meetings with your coach, vitamins, shake mix and a pedomeder. Not sure, might give it a try...could use the motivation and accountabilty.

I am excited...returning to Curves after 4 month recovery from a broken and replaced shoulder. So happy. Doctor said I am doing well. I will be careful of some of the machines but at least I am ready to go back.

By the way, I am in the St. Pete, Florida area so close to many of you.

Hello Elayne Mae and Marsha! I sure do envy your warm place to live! Its difficult recovering from surgery and getting moving again with the cold and icy sidewalks. I have had surgery #3 this year, and I sure am getting tired of the long medical leaves from Curves! I miss my exercise!! I am recuperating at my Mother's as she has a walk in shower while I just have a shower over a high bath tub. But I am looking forward to being well enough to go home. She wants me to stay until Christmas.
Hope you all have a good week!

Hi Marsha. My first husband's Mom was named Marsha and she was a very sweet person.

We lived in Town & Country. If you look in my photo album you will see a picture of Arjay and me by our '64 Corvair Monza Convertible.We used to go to the Dade City and Plant City car shows and the Zephyrhills one pretty regularly but we only go once in a while now. We've been trying to sell ours for 2 years now but the economy just isn't good now to try and sell anything.

Had a good Thanksgiving, and we now have the house decorated for Christmas. Our anniversary is Christmas Eve.

Good talking to you. I'll keep checking back here. Love our Curves..It's 4 minutes from my house.

Small world. What part of Tampa did you live? We live near the airport. Zephrihills is a nice town, and we saw that they had some sort of celebration going on their this weekend, old cars, etc. When DH was able we would go to the car shows. Now it is just too hard for him.
I did get him to ride with me to the PO, Walgreens to pick up a prescription.

I love Curves. There are a lot of them closing down. I have been to three different ones here in Tampa that have closed their doors. I go now to the one out by the Horse Track and Flea Market. It is only 7.5 miles. It all depends on DH and how he is feeling how many times I can go. I go early in the morning before he gets up usually. I only got there one time this week, and next week will probably be the same as Monday I have a doctor's appt. Tues I have to make Banana Bread to take to our Sons for Thanksgiving, and Wed. I have to make deviled eggs. I also get hair done on Wed. this week, I usually go on Thurs. but being Thanksgiving she is taking me Wed.

Glad to meet you. Have a great Thanksgiving.

Hi Marsha. We lived in Tampa for 20 some years and moved to Zephyrhills 11 years ago. Nice to meet you on line. I only got to Curves twice this week and I usually go 3 or 4 times. Hopefully next week will be better.

Cleaned the music/computer room today and made room in a corner for the tree for next weekend. I moved a book shelf with Arjay's help and I like where we put it. I'll keep it there even after Christmas. I feel good about what I accomplished today.

Our Thanksgiving will be quiet with just the two of us, three with Thor! We're having a turkey breast with all the trimmings. I'm getting single serving slices of pie rather than a whole pie. I don't need to have that around. I'll have to see what kind of pie Arjay wants..He may want something other than pumpkin.

That's about it from here in Fl. Have a great weekend everyone.

Playing my sax is how I connect with God. That gift is from God and I use it to Glorify His name. It's not bout me..it's all about HIM.

Good afternoon, I didn't get to Curves this morning, but I did get in some walking. I rode 1 mile on my recumbant bike and hope to ride another one after supper. Our granddaughter and great granddaughter are on their way here for a visit.

WOW, that is great 448th, they don't give tee shirts anymore at ours. I had gotten a 400 one, and then I had to quite going, have just started up at a new Curves and starting all over. You can order them I think. Keep up the good work. I only get to go twice a week usually. I did go yesterday and like you I do enjoy and feel so much better. I am 80 years young and need to stay active. I also live in Florida (Tampa)
Have a great day.
Marsha
