Curves - yeah, I got 'em

After I pleaded for any kind of inspiration to lose weight, Catsoul asked me if I had ever thought about joining Curves.

About five years ago, my mother and my sister got together to purchase my birthday presents. My mother bought me a membership to Curves and my sister bought me work out clothes. Now the problem with this is that I hadn’t mentioned to anyone that I wanted to lose weight or start an exercise program. Frankly, I weighed about 20 lbs. less than I do now and I thought I was looking pretty good.

And of course, when my mother said to me, “You have to use this, because they told me my money was non-refundable”, I sorta kinda wanted to put my hands on my hips and say, “You’re not the boss of me!”

I actually went to the local Curves late one night and went through the circle…once. I thought I was doing pretty well until I inadvertently caught the manager’s attention. She ran over to me and placed one muscular, sweaty thigh on each side of my face, grabbed the bars on the machine and started shouting into my face, “Girlfriend, put some muscle into it!!!”

I never returned.

Walking just seems to be easier...and less demeaning.
