I know it's been a while since I've posted and I am not sure if others are still interested in posting in this community...but I would like to welcome a new interested member LoveBeauty! Thank you for joining. Hopefully, we can make this community lively again!

I'll start by saying that Bally Total fitness is horrible! They lie and trick you into giving them more money than they should have! When I called the Ballys location near my house, the guy told me I would have to come in if i wanted to discuss it...a tatic they use to really grab you into the gym...then he offers me a two person package for "one"...which I didnt realize until after the fact that that meant 2 prices coming from one bank account. So when I realized that he totally did not offer any other downgraded packages (which I discovered they had the next day) I decided to quit. I called in, a guy says "you have to come in by tomorrow to void it"...I couldnt make it the next day but before I decided I couldnt make it, I called in again to see if I can go the next day "theres a number to call to cancel". So when I called to cancel, they said I had to swipe my card 12 times before the 1st month is over on different days, then I can quit...they never said anything about sharod swiping because the account was under my name. So, I go outta my way everyday to swipe my card...the last day I could swipe, I called to cancel and the rep tells me she cant void it because sharod didnt swipe 12 times...so basically, I'm stuck having to pay 80 bucks for something I wont go to until Sharod gets a doctors note saying he cannot exercise anymore...

WTF! Who knew that trying to keep in shape would be so fucking difficult.

So when I'm ready, I'm starting my home gym.

Latley, I've been feeling really good. I'd say my body is ok...except for my stomach...I hate it! It pops out and it never used to. So I have a lot of work to do to get my body in shape.

Today I had toast w/butter...which I'm gonna stop after this weekend, a piece of cantaloupe and coffee with skim and splenda. For lunch, I'm having ramen soups...for dinner, I'm drinking the night away...so I guess todays not a good day to start loosing weight lol.

Girl, I went to Bally's too, just to get GENERAL NFORMATION, and after an hour they were trying to get me to whip out my checkbook. When I told them I wasn't interested...well let's just say that they got real rude and pretty much told me that I was dumb for "wanting to stay the way I was" and not wanting to be "better looking." I promptly cursed them out and left. Down with Bally's! I really recommend Curves more than anything, it's such a great place, and they measure you in inches, not pounds. If there's one near you, check it out!

Not at all. The I went to get some info last week, they were having a special where you pay $114 to start and then after that it's $40 per month. It's 30 minutes a day, three times a week, and you can stop whenever you want, no penalty involved. I started going my sophmore year, and then stopped cause I twisted my ankle, and haven't been since, but I miss it, and since I haven't been to keen on how I look these days, I want to go back. So I strongly recommend checking it out.

That is a bummer you had such a hard time with Ballys. I have been a member for almost 9 years and never had problems. In fact I had cancelled my membership once (there wasn't one in the area) and when I wanted to rejoin, they let me back at the price I left at, no starting over no nothing and I pay probably aorund 100 bucks a year and I can go to any one, any where.

Maybe its just the folks here, but they have always been super nice!
