Shanda Boes has always been happy and popular. Her weight never held her back…or so she thought. Of course, as a kid she envied her skinny friends who could pack away the burgers and fries and never gain an ounce. But since puberty it seemed that being overweight was her destiny. As an adult and the co-owner of a hair salon, she saw her two coworkers struggle with weight, too. But they wanted to make sure their friendship and partnership remained healthy, in every respect. So they got Shanda to join them at Curves.
At first, Shanda says she was skeptical that just 30 minutes of any exercise could do anything. However, once she noticed that she was losing an average of 8-12 pounds a month, she was hooked!


Pat McCoy

Inches lost: 37
Dress sizes lost: 3

"I am meeting myself – a woman whom I’ve had inside who was pretty cool, and the woman I am maturing into. I like who I am and I didn’t before.”

Responding to all of the “Honey-dos” and “Mommy-do’s” of her husband of 19 years and their three children, Patricia McCoy was a tireless homemaker. Establishing a business to help other moms meet their household needs, she was extremely busy. But she was not fulfilled. And despite all of the activity in her life, she was unable to lose the pounds she had gained over the years. None of her attempts to lose the weight – to health clubs to a personal trainer to a treadmill in her own home – have worked. Until Now.


Kelly Brandon

Pounds lost: 130
Inches lost: 96
Dress sizes lost: 6

When 19-year-old Kelly Brandon’s doctor warned that she was headed down the same road toward diabetes as her father, it got her attention. Her father was blind in his right eye from the disease and he wasn’t even 50. So Kelly started working out at Curves and following the Permanent Results Without Permanent Dieting plan. “I found that I can conquer anything!” says a gleeful Kelly, who is 130 pounds lighter and still diabetes-free. “All of my life I was just the fat girl. Now, for the first time, I’m Kelly.”
