It Works! Wrap Review
Last night I did my first wrap and while I wasnt sure this morning to be impressed or not, after seeing the pictures, I was won over.
Here is what I did...
This weekend you all know was not a good eating weekend for me. I knew it and I planned to do this detox with the wrap because of it.
So last night I took a good hot shower to open up my pours. I used my loofah and scrubbed hard where the wrap was gonna be.
I also made sure to take pictures and measurements which I will share with you in a minute.
Before applying the wrap, I drank two glasses of water. You have to drink A LOT of water over the 72 hours because it helps flush out the toxins that the wrap releases. Think half of your body weight in ounces. So I made sure to put about three quarts of water in my fridge so I can make sure I drink all that I need in a day.
Then I undid the wrap and put it on. I loved the smell of it. Eucalyptus scent and it made my skin tingle- in a good way. Then I wrapped it with saran wrap to hold it into place. You can leave the wrap on for a minimum of 45 minutes but I wanted to leave mine on over night. You arent supposed to wrap the saran tight. You still want it to breathe so your body absorbs the lotion on the wrap into your body. If you wrap it too tight, your body will sweat and that wont help ya.
After that you do nothing but drink water. Lots of water. LOL. No exercising. No nothing.
So after I drank a bunch of water I went to bed. This morning I got up, undid the wrap, threw it away and rubbed the remaining lotion in. That was it. Seriously.
I came downstairs and took my after pictures and measurements before doing Ripped in 30. I did get Ripped in on Saturday before my Pampered Chef party but not yesterday so I missed doing it.
Ok here are my measurements from yesterday and so far today.
I will take another picture and more measurements tomorrow. Wednesday I will be doing another wrap. I think the most impressive picture is the side view one.
Waist at belly button: 40"
2" below belly button: 42"
2" above belly button: 39"
Morning after measurements:
Waist at belly button: 38"
2" below belly button: 41 1/2"
2" above belly button: 37 1/2"
I cant wait to see how this progresses over the next 72 hours.
What do you guys think? Impressed or no?
Only thing I have to change diet wise for this is no alcohol, or caffeine or artificial sweetners. It defeats the purpose if you put toxins back in the body while you are trying to detox. So this helps me stay on track with my clean eating too. Good incentive I think.
Have a great Monday.
