When Patti Collins’ doctor told her 16 months ago that her weight had triggered diabetes, she joined Curves and attended the Permanent Results Without Permanent Dieting weight-loss class. Besides stopping the diabetes in its tracks, “I found out who I was at Curves,” says the now-svelte Texan. “I found out that I’m strong, self-controlled, not afraid to try new things, and not afraid to stand up for what I believe in. I also lost 102 pounds,” she chuckles. “But that was just and added benefit.”


Debbie Bishop

Inches lost: 140

After walking out on an office Christmas dinner because, at 366 pounds, she couldn’t fit behind the table, a determined Debbie Bishop-Lane walked into her local Curves, which she had joined a month before. A year later, she was 179 pounds lighter. And as she dressed for that year’s Christmas party, her youngest daughter put her arms around her mom, told her how much she loved her, and how beautiful she was. “The overwhelming feeling of achievement was astonishing,” Debbie says. “I felt like Cinderella must have felt at her ball.”


Barbie K. Reed

Inches lost: 90

“Curves has put fun and energy into my life. And while it’s feeling better about my emotional and physical health that truly matters, it’s also nice to hear that my 31-year-old son’s coworkers think I’m his girlfriend!”

After years of issues with weight and self-esteem, Barbie K Reed was ready for a revolution. Curves helped to provide the revelation. After her mother gave her up to be raised by various relatives who also made her feel unwanted, Barbie K. Reed felt an emptiness filled only by food. Despite a family history of hypertension, diabetes, and much more, she was emotionally unable to deal with her ballooning weight and the health problems it portended. Her wake-up call literally came in the middle of the night, when she learned that her obese mother was found lying on the floor of her nursing home, dead at age 68. Approaching 50, Barbie could see her not-toodistant future. Curves helped give her a new focus and change that picture.
