Quoting ♥Lexies Mommy:" Ive always wondered if those work too. How long does it take to when your "suppose to" see results? How do you actually use them?"


From what I've read, is you put them on for 45min and then over the next 72 hours it tightens/firms things up. And you can repeat every 3rd day with another wrap. From the before/afters I've seen, you really see the difference after the 2nd or 3rd wrap.



And I had a friend that that used 6 and her stomach looked great! You could definitely tell, but then she started eating out every day and her changes quickly disappeared, lol.



I'm not holding my breathe, but I'm hoping it does do something.



I'll take pictures before/after each wrap and share with you ladies!

Quoting ♥Lexies Mommy:" Sounds great have you started using one so far?"


Not yet! They'll be here the 9th.. but I think I'm gonna after the 20th, so then then I'll have to time to buy more wraps if I need to, but the results SHOULD still be here when Seth gets back in February. :D

Well, I had to upload a photo for a challenge I am on on MFP so I thought I would add it to this too, to track better.

Quoting ~*~ Nichole ~*~:" Well I started the low carb diet yesterday, yay! Starting weight yesterday was 190.3 so down a few lbs ... [snip!] ... only for two weeks so I'll be fine lol. Starting working out today too. Just reinstated my gym membership, soooo excited!!"

I hope doing low carb works well for you! That is great you are going back to the gym! I am thinking about joining the YMCA near me. What type of machines do you like to do at the gym?

Great job getting before pics done. I always miss this step and regret it later!

I like the stair stepper and treadmill for cardio, and for weights I do a lot of free weights for upper body and use the machines for lower body.

Alright.



We went to David's Bridal yesterday to get my best friends wedding dress picked out and look at bridesmaids dresses. We found her an absolutely gorgeous dress! And we got our dresses.



I tried on a 14 (which is really like a 12, from my experience from that DB!) and it was loose.. all over. Like, I would have definitely needed it altered. So, I tried a 12 and it DID zip but it was tight. I decided to go with it anyways, in hopes that it will keep my motivated!



:D

Quoting ♥Love♥:" That is so aweome!! Congrats! Ive shopped there and noticed there stuff runs small! That must have been ... [snip!] ... in plenty of time so Im using that as my motivator! How many pounds does it take you to lose a dress size? Like 20 Im guessing?"


Yeah, everytime I've shopped there I've been told not to get discouraged by the sizes because they run typically one size smaller than most! Even my wedding dress was a size bigger than I was wearing at that time.



I really don't know how much to lose to have it fit, but I'm hoping 15-20lb will make it fit perfect, even though by June, I'd ideally like to be down another 30lb!

Quoting ♥Lexies Mommy:" Ahh thats great what an awesome experience. Did you like davids bridal?. I am thinking I am going to get my wedding dress from there. If you dont mind me asking how much did her dress cost?"


I liked her experience with David's Bridal WAY more than my experience (even though it was the same store). But I would recommend them. :)



Her dress was $650 and I think my dress from there was around $1200! I had an oleg cassini, where hers was just the davids bridal brand! I seriously love hers though!
