Thank you Curves!
I could never have survived as well as I have without Curves.
1) For a frightening year, it has kept me focused on keeping my body agile and positive.
2) It has helped me lose weight in a gradual, maintaining way.
I saw my MD yesterday - and she was thrilled! I lost 16 pounds from last year.
My cholesterol is the lowest in 35 years- I will take my meds every other day, now. My mammogram is normal.
3) Curves has been a support during my cancer treatments cancer survivor members brought me hats and hugs.
4) Curves' members and our wonderful leader, Hosanna's care, and are an inspiration.
When my hair began to grow back, they all noticed it and shouted "hurrah."
Many thanks to all of you!
