I saw the info commercial today. They say, "why spend thousands of dollars on plastic surgery when you could just buy a Kymara body shaper?". As if plastic surgery is our only option! The commercial has these overweight women in tight clothes and it measures them before and after they put the bra on and ..."you will have a new and improved shape instantly!" These women lose 5 inches off of their waste...and their boobs get an lift also.
So why do the work?
1) They can't wear this body shaper all the time and will eventually have to get naked.
2) The body shaper will not help them to be healthy and prevent the diseases that obesity can cause.
3) The body shaper will not give them the freedom of movement or the ability to enjoy playing with kids or playing sports. In fact, I bet they feel a little like Scarlet O'Hara and can't move much at all.
4) The body shaper will not give them a sense of accomplishment like a lifestyle change will!
I must admit I have been a little frustrated with the fact that I have not lost a lot of weight since I started meanwhile doing everything I am supposed to and then some. However, I am losing inches and in 2 1/2 weeks I lost about 3 1/2 in off of my waist. That is a loss that will stay with me even when I get naked. And I feel so much better! More energy and simply proud of myself. This is something the body shaper could never do for me. I would only feel like a cheater.
Thanks for allowing me to share!
