As most of you know, I’m only 5’0. I have 2 little boys, both of which weighed over 8 lbs at birth (one was 9.5!) and both were near 23 inches long. I was HUGE when I was pregnant with both of them. With Noah I never got a SINGLE stretch mark. Not a single one. When I was 35 weeks pregnant with Peyton that all changed and I have a few tiger stripes now 😉
Needless to say, my stomach is not looking up to par anymore. It’s actually kind of a hot mess. I have 2 issues: Diastasis recti (which I can do nothing about right now) and some extra skin. Not a lot of skin, but just a thin little bit. When I got the opportunity to try an It Works! wrap from one of my high school friends who is now a consultant, I jumped at the chance. I’m willing to try anything to shrink this belly and tighten up some of this skin!
Here is a description of the wrap from It Works!: “The
Ultimate Body Applicator is a site-specific body wrap
designed for abs, back, legs, arms and chin area. The
wrap is made of a non-woven cloth, and is an easy,
powerful, one-step application formula to help you
lose inches, tighten and tone, and improves skin
texture for younger looking skin. It has a safe
preservative system without formaldehyde releasers.
Made with all natural herbs and is approved in the
United States, Japan, and Europe.”
To start, I drank a crap ton of water. I showered and dried off and wrapped the wrap around my middle, then wrapped plastic wrap around the wrap to keep it in place. I basically just hung out on the computer chugging water for an hour. You don’t have to keep it on for an hour, but I was told it was okay to. I got nervous when I initially put the wrap on because it had an icy-hot feeling to it. It was a cold tingling feeling. It wore off as the hour went on, though, so I suppose it was supposed to feel like that.
When my hour was up I took the wrap off and rubbed in the lotion that was left over. I measured immediately and lost a total of 1 inch between hips, belly, and waist. My results stayed the same through the next 3 days, but for some the results can continue to build over 72 hours.
