Finding the time seems to be the biggest obstacle for most people. You have to MAKE the time, do it for yourself. I really feel lethargic when I miss even 1 day at the gym. I go 6 days a week, usually. I, personally have never attended curves, though we do have them here. I've heard good things about them. (I go to a gym with a pool, for water aerobics) I object to the fact that they are for women only--If there was a men's only gym, women would be snarling and fighting for entry--at least some would (my soapbox ). But, I also know that for those who are extremely overweight and/or have low self esteem, it can be a lifesaver, so they serve a good purpose :goodjob: . If you're going to attend a gym, you have to decide you're worth the time and effort it takes, and it's worth making that time for yourself.
