I asked to be weighed and measured (fyi, if you're trying to boost your self esteem, don't do this), and I'll get weighed and measured once a month for the next four months (i.e., until my wedding).
Anyway, here is my point; with our wedding costs mounting, and our budget swelling, I didn't want to add a monthly (read: insanely inflated) gym membership to our already overstretched budget. Instead, I'm paying $25.00 a month. And, I simply asked if I could be exempt from the yearly contract, and you know what, they went for it! I couldn't have asked for more!
