I did curves for a while...then we moved. Good for you! Keep it up. I really enjoyed my work out there. I might just have to find another one after I deliver my baby in a few months. I put on 8 pounds last month alone...YIKES!

Since I've never been inside a "Curves" or any other exercise facility, I must say this looks like a rather appealing place to hang out if you "have to" exercise.
