Bye Bye Spanx!!

Thursday, January 26, 2012

It has been such a long time since I have blogged and I thought that a decision I made recently was worth sharing...

As I had gained weight I did not feel comfortable in my skin or my clothes. Clothing never quite fit like I wanted it too so to mnake myself feel a bit better I invested in some spanx (shapewear, girdle, etc.) WELL although they lifted me up when I was down, no pun intended, I feel like those darn things have disguised the goal I should be attaining. I don't want to wear those damn things for the rest of my life! They are just a temporary fix, a bandaid. SO...I threw them all out!!!! NO MORE SPANX for me!! I have mixed feelings about my decision only because some days I just really want to look slimmer but ya know, I need to make myself feel like that. Since I have thrown them out I am more aware of my body and the work that needs to be done.

So who wants to join me in this huh? Throw them out the window, oh okay, in the trash can. No one wants to see your knickers :) You will feel better knowing that you are not being deceived!

    I don't know emoticon . I have had to go the other way in my thinking due to the fact that the more I let it all hang out,the more it didn't want to go back in, lol. I use this stuff called "Sweet Sweat" and I put in on everyday now, and put on a waist workout band, and the spanx over it and it helps sweet all the excess fat off of my waist. It's a secret I had learned years ago from small waisted friends, with very nice curves. So at least if I gain weight it does not settle on my waist. And I have found that when I don't use anything my waist starts to expand, and it's not just using the sweet sweat, it's using the spanx also. I guess it reminds me to use my waist muscles,and make's me know when I am relaxing too much. What do you think? LOL emoticon

    It's a kind of fake it, till you make it kind of thang.

    Somehow, I've missed the experience.

    (Think I'm going to CONTINUE missing it, too.)

    I tried those torture devices on once and thought I might have to be cut out of them in the store! LMAO! I decided I'd rather be comfy, breathe easily, and allow circulation over looking slightly more compressed but still fat, cos hey, they only so so much anyway! emoticon I have a sneaking suspicion a man invented them. emoticon

    I agree completely, whenever I where them I can't help but feel like I am lying to myself and others about what I look like and in a way about who I am. I think I should be able to feel beautiful and thin on my own and how can I do that when it feels like I am lying. It doesn't help though, when you go shopping with other people and they say "oh that looks great but would look better with the spanx" This is something my mother does and it just makes me boil. So I agree a say no to spanx!
