Kellye, I've never tried Slimfast, but hubby did at one time and it didn't really work for him. That may not be saying much because I don't think he really used it right.
It's a meal substitute, instead of eating breakfast you have one of their shakes which has all the nutrients you are supposed to get by eating. My personal problem with it is that it may help you lose weight, but you don't actually change your eating habits so when you stop doing it you will more than likely gain all the weight back.
Ghys, Curves is an all women fitness center that has circuit training. They also have their own weight control program with shake supplements, etc. but you don't have to do that. Their weight control program is pretty close to Atkins, from what I've heard (one of my good friends belongs to it, but she isn't doing their "program" just the workout part). The workouts are more specifically designed for women and you don't have to deal with the bodybuilding men in the gym.
Of course, you don't get to see
the bodybuilding men either.
I think Daniela's a member at a Curves, so she could probably answer any questions you have about it before they give you a sales pitch.
I went to the Dr. yesterday, and found I've gained 3 pounds since November.
Of course, that does include all of the holidays, which I knew I wasn't very good and "forgot" to workout most of the month. Considering the average person gains 8-10 pounds over the holidays, I guess 3 isn't too bad. I really need to get a scale so I don't have to go to the Dr. every time I want to get weighed. I'll be going to the fitness center today for a good hard workout, and I've actually been doing pretty good with that. I go 2-3 times a week and I'm trying to figure out a schedule for myself so I make sure I work out at least 3 times a week.
