I promised this many moons ago, did I not? )

In the last episode of [livejournal.com profile] vasaris' ever-so-exciting-journal, I talked a bit about Curves Founder Gary Heavin's book and the reviews on Amazon that I found funny, and why.

[livejournal.com profile] marveen brought up a point in the comments that I find very interesting. I had noted that Curves is a place for beginners and a place for people who hate exercise but would like the benefits of strength training. [livejournal.com profile] marveen reported that [livejournal.com profile] kelticviking said that that means that we want it to be easy.

My response? Well, yeah. )

I mentioned that the founder of Curves has written a book. Bad me, he's written more than one. In any case, his name is Gary Heavin, and the books he's written include:
Curves: Permanent Results without Permanent Dieting
and
Curves on the Go

With additional hits for workbooks and the like, I think, on Amazon.

I found a whole new reason to point and laugh in the reviews. )

Okay, it's rather like bragging, but... I was looking at my arms and my forearms are shaped differently. Which is to be expected, I suppose, but it's quite surreal to look down and think those don't look like my arms/hands.

Then again, I occasionally have is that my body? moments too.

Huh.

Yay!

In other news, have managed to get rid of the random 5lb weight gain I had last week and am back to 94lbs lost overall!

Yay!

Curves is a totally awesome place! And it works, too!
