I spent some times at Curves this morning. Curves is a 30 minute exercise club for only women. I have just passed my 100th workout and in the last month started "Curves Smart" which is like having a personal trainer via the computer. It is all pretty technical, but you have your own private key card which programs each hydraulic exercise machine to make you work harder and to progress.
I feel fortunate in that I would just like to lose 20 pounds, but the toning and strengthening of the muscles is the real reward. If I had to do anything different, I would have started this at about age 45 or 50, when the body starts deteriorating without strengthening exercise.
