Katie Altmeyer’s nickname is Katie Scarlett. “My uncle says I have spunk, gumption, and a bit o’ the devil, just like Scarlett O’Hara,” explains the 44-year-old hairstylist. He’s right. And oh, did she need it. In five years, Katie lost her father, home, business, mother, and health. Then a ruptured appendix almost killed her. Determined to stay alive for her kids, she moved back to her hometown and joined Curves. “I made the decision to get healthy,” she says. When her marriage folded, Curves remained her haven. Today she’s healthier, 115 pounds lighter, remarried, and back in business. Her dream? Her own hair salon. The name? Katie Scarlett.

“Before Curves I couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without taking a break at the top. Now I have energy not only to climb stairs, but to jog on a treadmill. I never in my life thought I could run!”

Having been overweight all of her life, Cindy Magistad didn’t think it possible – or necessary to think anything different. But reaching 350 pounds at the age of 25, she also didn’t think about the consequences. The onset of high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes, among other ailments suppressed her skepticism long enough for her to give curves a try. Now, more than 150 pounds lighter and healthier – emotionally as well as physically – there’s no turning back.

Inches lost: 74

“There are six of us who carpool to Curves every morning. They call us the ‘Ya-Yas’—when we come in we liven things up. We give each other support; the staff gives us support. Curves has given me a real sense of community.”

There was a time when Judy Cohoon was a very active person, enjoying tennis, biking, aerobics, and more. But three surgeries in one year sidelined her at age 47, and the only thing that remained healthy was her appetite. No longer able to exercise, she had resigned herself to being overweight. Then Judy learned a fun 30-minute workout program at a place called Curves, which was coming to her area. She kept checking, waiting for the doors to open. Judy never imagined that through those doors was an opportunity for a new life.
