SparkPeople Curves Smart Workout Team Messageboard http://www.sparkpeople.com/assets/nav/nav_logo_v3.gif http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_individual.asp?gid=15599 Hello new almost member http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x67940974 Well joining in December it's my goal for 2018. Is it the right decision for traveling 20 miles to the studio <BR> Guess we will see .i was a member about 5 years ago it worked but I just dropped out <BR> That's my MO join drop gain <BR> So after fighting more weight gain it's a must. <BR> Fri, 17 Nov 2017 09:08:43 EST Curves Complete http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x58899214 Is anyone doing Curves Complete? If so do you log your food on their website or on spark? I just started the Curves complete and will do it for 3 months. However, I'm finding their website extrememly slow when logging food and I'm very confused trying to log food. So far I don't like how the meal plan is put together. I know it can be changed but seems more of a hassle. Sparkpeople's food diary seems so much easier. Just curious as to what others thought about it. Wed, 20 Aug 2014 16:52:02 EST New Machines & March Workout! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x57027152 So we got our new machines almost two weeks ago. And whoa. Some of them are a LOT harder and some of them are easier. Some are also the same. The first couple times were frustrating, but now that I've gotten used to them, it seems normal again. We're having problems with our Curves Smart though. They had to send back all the sensors because it wasn't working right... that's been a bummer. Oh! And our stepper wouldn't read the right heart rate! It's always in the 80s. So they're gett... Thu, 6 Mar 2014 10:55:48 EST February- New Jillian routine http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x56644018 So how do you like it? It was really, really hard for me. I think I will have to modify until I build up some strength. Some of the ladies thought this month's was easier. side planks! Mountain climbers! My arms today are still wiggly. Tue, 4 Feb 2014 12:20:27 EST Do you work out when you have a cold? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x56564459 I caught a cold last week and have not been to Curves because I did not want to expose any members to my germs. What do you do if you can't go out to keep in shape. I have been in bed 3 days and am very week and frustrated about the set back! Feel weak and no weight lost even though eating MUCH less! Wed, 29 Jan 2014 14:35:57 EST Great to be aboard! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x56487563 I am a happily employed and healthy great grandmother! Lots of enegy and lots of weight to lose. I am trusting Curves and Sparkpeople to help me reach a goal of 20 pounds off by May 1. <BR> Work hours do not let me do Jillian's classes but the 11 machines are great and I already notice a difference in energy levels after only a week. Good luck to us as we travel through the Curves plan! Cheers!! Thu, 23 Jan 2014 18:12:35 EST What excercises do you do to supplement Curves? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x56483802 I just feel that some muscles are being ignored. Although with Jillian, it feels like my whole body is twitching. I've started adding plain old sit ups since my lower stomach (dang those kids!) is still my weak spot. Thu, 23 Jan 2014 12:10:51 EST New to Team http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x56281395 Hi! Let's see. I'm new. I joined Curves last April. I did Curves Complete for three months. Kind of took a break in November and December and am now back in the swing of things. And I've done Jillian Michaels! I'll post about that in another section. <BR> <BR> Cheri Wed, 8 Jan 2014 21:45:04 EST Jillian Michaels is changing Curves??? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x55658411 So as I was working out this morning, the owner told us she had some exciting news. She said that a lot will be changing soon and that Jillian Michaels is teaming up with Curves. She said I will love it, but I've seen Jillian's workouts and they scare me! Anyone else hear about this?? Sat, 16 Nov 2013 16:14:44 EST Hi Sparkies! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x53414489 My name is Mary Catherine.

I have been on and off of Spark since July 2007. Joined Curves mid-Aug. 2012 (after my son began Kindergarten). Will start the new Curves Complete tomorrow. LOVE Curves and my club owner/coach, Denise. She is awesome!! <BR> <BR> I am a full time SAHM and Housewife. Still struggling to get unpacked and settled after moving last Jan. I am determined to get to a healthy weight and stay there (or as close to it as possible). <BR> Sun, 20 Jan 2013 16:52:46 EST New Curves Member http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x50466327 Just finished up a 30 day trial membership and I'm sold on Curves.

But the Personal Relationship you have with the Trainer/Coach has to be way up at the Top of the List. I really do feel that they care about you and share in your Success. <BR> <em>34</em> My Least Favorite thing would be their hours. It does work for me (most of the time) but I know that a lot of people have Job Schedules that make it hard to come in.

After two very stressful years, I am committing to lasting change. I used the "free week" that popped up on SP and am now starting Curves Smart (as of this past Monday). Between CS and being very watchful of my eating, I have started to see a slight decrease in my weight - so am very happy about that.

I joined Curves in November 2010 and I'm lovin it! I just started the Curve smart program yesterday! Looking forward to getting to know everyone! <BR> Fri, 7 Jan 2011 10:09:07 EST Thought for the holiday http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15599x38655190 Don’t let one slip-up throw you off <BR> <BR> “If you eat an extra cupcake, you probably won’t gain weight. But if you say to yourself, ‘I can’t believe I did that! I might as well eat whatever I want today and start my diet again tomorrow,’ you could gain two pounds over-night. Think of it this way: If you made a mistake and went through a red light, would you continue to go through red lights for the rest of the day? Of course not.” <BR> <BR> <BR> Warmest thoughts and best wishes for ...

I personally think it's great as I see more members doing an extra day of exercise which is awesome plus the zumba kicks it up a notch for those that are a little lax on the recovery boards.

I did my first workout with the Smart card yesterday and it kicked my butt. I'm thrilled. I tend to be very competetive against myself -- I don't care about beating other people's high scores on games, but I absolutely MUST beat my own. Working for that solid green light triggered that competetive aspect of my personality and made me really push to give it my all. I love this!

I am new to SparkPeople (my mom heavily suggested it) and new to Curves! I am eager to get my 15 workouts in so I can do the Curves Smart. I am also looking forward to do the Curves diet.. has anyone done that? Just wanted to shout HELLO and see you around!

I'm optimistic that it's a workable plan..especially coupled with Spark and the support/information here. <BR> <BR> I'm confused as to how to log the strength training - I found "curves circuit" in the cardio section.

I joined SP last week, and I joined my local Curves on Monday. <BR> <BR> I have worked out all week, and today was my FIRST curvesmart!! I burned 468 calories. Apparently that's good for the first time. Looks like I worked all points to 100% but 2 at 87%.

I’ve been a member of the team for a few weeks, but haven’t gotten around to introducing myself yet. <BR> <BR> I realized that I’d gotten way out of shape when I went hiking in Sept, and couldn’t really keep up.

But now my local curves is having a 3 days a week for 5 weeks challenge and I'm definitely going to make it!

I just joined SP a couple weeks ago, and I just joined Curves on Thursday (go for my second work out in a couple hours). I really hope that Curves works for me, I really like the "efficiency" of it, as I know I wouldn't be able to find more time than that to go to a gym (not right now anyway). I am super anxious to start the Curves Smart, but they wont let me start for 1 month. They want me to have my technique down pat first. I'm not new to weight training or circuit training ...

We have modified it somewhat so that we follow the Sparks carb/protein/fat recommended values but we use the calorie values and phase patterns of the 30 day diet. So far with 3 work outs a week and this approach we have both lost a bit over 11 ounds. Anyone else doing this? How are the other team mates dieting?

New to CS but not Curves http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x15599x27655850 Hi! <BR> I am 2 weeks into CS and am working out VERY hard. Ive seen some impressive calorie numbers burned, but not for me. Its been around 200-220. Ive had really good reports as far as what it tells me and its bumped my PI up several times. Lots and lots of green..so I cant figure out how people are burning 500 calories and I am burning only 200+. My heart rate is always in the green as well. Thoughts?

You were good all day but out of nowhere, nothing satisfies your ravenous appetite. I've tried everything. I go back to work in two weeks so I will be working out from 4-5 pm instead of the morning and that should take care of one of those hours. I want to know what happens to my body during this time that I am a bottomless pit? What do you do????? <BR> <BR> Feed me Seymour!!!!! <em>4</em> Wed, 5 Aug 2009 12:10:26 EST Hi....

I've never stuck with a gym membership before until this one. Even on those days when you could easily talk yourself into doing something else it's easy to just get there and get it done quickly and effectively. Curvesmart sure keeps you honest!

Since I started curves smart I have been extremely nauseous and uncomfortable after my workouts. Yesterday I almost couldn't drive home it was so intense.

I joined Curves in September 2005 and by June 2006 I'd lost 86 lbs! I wanted to lose 100 total, but I got on a plateau and was stuck for a long time. Then in 2007 the weight slowly started creeping back on. It was my own fault...I was eating things I knew I shouldn't be eating, and I was very lazy about my Curves workouts. I spent most of 2007 gaining the weight back, and most of 2008 trying to get back on track to lose the weight again. <BR> Finally last month I transferred to a Curves t...
