The life of Heather Davies was transformed one day in August 2004, when she lost her only son, Carlton, 32, of cancer. Devastated by the loss of her beloved son, she sank into a long depression the following year. She even ends up ""thinking that life was not worth living"". At 238 pounds, her weight had consequences for both her mood and health. Heather describes times when she “looked in the mirror and hating what she saw and what she felt.” Over time, she realized that her son would not want to see her like this “I realized that Carlton would have been angry if he saw me so depressed and so unhappy.” Heather decided to join a club to lose weight, but she soon realized that diet alone is not sufficient: “I had to strengthen my body so I wouldn’t find myself with a surplus of skin.” After some research, she decided that Curves was the best choice to help achieve her goal. She became a member, accompanied by her sister, and never looked back: “From the beginning, we loved every minute we spent at Curves!”. Heather has also made new friends. In their group, they “always manage to have fun while doing their exercise”. From the day she decided to join Curves, Heather has lost 97 pounds! Curves has helped her to “enjoy life again and feel I could do anything I wanted.” Before joining Curves, she spent more than 20 years taking pills for her blood pressure. Today, she no longer needs to take medication. Surgery scheduled for an old knee problem has also been reversed by Heather due to muscle strengthening exercises done in the Curves program.

Wearing a size 50, Jean Kinsella's clothing did not reflect her real age. She never imagined that only 18 months later she would buy dresses five sizes smaller. Jean decided to join Curves when she was tired of worrying about her appearance and health. Without knowing what to expect, she was surprised to discover how much she enjoyed her 30 minutes of training three times a week, but also how quickly she had taken up the challenge to improve her fitness. As she describes herself: "It was not the end of the world!" As Jean began to lose weight, her body strengthened. "I have more confidence in myself, I feel younger and have much more energy!" These visible changes have also encouraged Jean to adopt a healthier diet. "I replaced coffee with water and I always try to choose healthier meals. When we asked Jean how her adventure at Curves has changed her life and improved both her health and fitness, she says the benefits have been enormous. "I'm still in good shape and a much better mood!" she confessed. For her, the decision was "the best thing I did for myself for years."
