nancy, i ended up not going with curves. there was a gym recommended to me by a friend that is right down the street from me and only 1/2 the cost of curves. plus, curves doesn't take cards, only cash or check, and that wasn't convenient for me. the gym i chose gave me a trainer for a free session to get me started on a program. right now we're focusing mainly on my arms because i don't want to get the weight-loss bat wings, a little on the legs and some crunches and flutter kicks. due to some things that happen in life i haven't started going regularly yet, but i am going to do that come monday. i'm looking forward to getting into a routine and seeing if i get some results.
