    Amazing! So happy for you! I went to the site and the price per meal is reasonable. Unfortunately my budget for food is $30/week and I'm trying to do it in less than that (I'll be blogging about this probably for goals). Maybe in a few months. But I'm sooooo happy for you!!!! emoticon

    The only thing I didn't know about you is that you play the piano and the flute. Do you have any time to practice? I doubt it with your busy life.

Also, you are never late? That should happen to me.

Take care, my friend.

TONING SHOES...DO THEY REALLY WORK???

Thursday, November 04, 2010



I put up a picture so YOU would know what I'm talking about...
There are many Brands out there now with similar products, MBT (Masai Barefoot Technology) and Reebok EasyTone , etc.

SO?
Has Anyone tried these???????
I Love to walk, But before I invest $$$ I really need to know, ARE THEY WORTH IT?

Plus I don't want to read in 6 months or so that OMG! These shoes cause irreversible spine damage or foot problems, Ya know?

Thank You!
Have A Most Awesome Sparkly Day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is a few months after you asked the question, but, I just read another article written by 'experts' that recommended for you to save your money. There was no proof that it helped you to lose weight or even work your muscles any harder.

    I asked my physical therapist/pilates trainer this same question. Her view on it is that, yes, your body has to work differently in order to keep balanced in these shoes but, no, it's not appropriate for me (or for lots of people) who don't know how to walk in them for that benefit. You have to keep your core stable. She's seeing patients whose injured IT bands, periformis, and other stabilizers are causing pain because they were strained in the process.

She compared it to walking in super high heels - if you know how to walk in them with stability, they're fine for short periods, but most people don't.

I say get what works for YOU. And, what's fun! :) :)

    I was reading your blog from today and saw this one on your page. I have Dr. Scholl's from Walmart.com they were only $15 so I thought what the heck, I'd give them a try. They look exactly like all the others only a fraction of the cost. I can feel a difference when I wear them, it took me a few days to really feel comfortable in them. I don't think I will ever look like the girl in the picture from wearing them, but I like them. You have to remind yourself when you are standing in one spot to stay up and not to just keep your feet flat like a ordinary shoe, as to tone up your calfs or back on your heels to stretch them. At the price I paid I would suggest them!

    UW-La Crosse (WI) did a study on them and found no improvement in tone. I wanted some Sketchers for a long time until I read that article. It (the study) was in the LaCrosse Tribune a couple of months ago.I hope this helps.

    I haven't tried any of them but I did read an article on line (can't remember where). The article said that some have extra padding or are shaped a little differently and can give you more comfort as you walk/run, they don't really do anything to help tone. AS I said, I haven't tried them maybe someone else can be of more help.
