Wrap the fat

25 Mar

Oh Monday morning, you seem so far away on Friday afternoon, but come so quickly.

I am pounding water this morning and for the next 3 days because yesterday I went to a “wrap party.” Don’t worry- I didn’t know what it was until I agreed to going either. I think my boyfriend thought I was going to a party about either wrapping paper or rap music. Ha! Little does he know I was going to a party to be wrapped in plastic wrap.

My friend had gone to an It Works! party before and said she lost 3 inches from her waist. She thought of it as a jumpstart to the pre-summer weight maintenance. I was dubious, but I am also always willing to try something new (besides giving up eating Cheetos for breakfast). I had forgotten I had signed up for this party with her, but rallied and was waiting outside when she came to pick me up yesterday afternoon.

We got to her friend’s house and were greeted by several girls already wrapped up. The sound of crinkling plastic accompanied the chatter of the group of us and the yells of the multiple children running around the house. It was the first decent day of spring and the kids were wound up. They could play outside! They could make mud pies! I think the moms were just grateful they could send their kids outdoors for the first time in a long time without worrying about frostbite.

When my turn arrived, I went into the bathroom and awkwardly stood there while being measured. Luckily, the girl from It Works! was used to this and made me feel somewhat less uncomfortable while I lifted up my shirt and pulled my pants down to have my stomach and thighs done. She put the wraps on and then wrapped them in plastic wrap to hold them in place and keep the concoction on them from getting all over my clothes.

After a couple of hours (although 45 minutes is all that is necessary), the wraps were removed and we were remeasured. Some girls lost up to 5 inches! I only lost 1 inch, but I am told it could be because I drank too much water while waiting so was bloated. Apparently, I will continue losing inches for the next 72 hours provided I drink plenty of water. It makes me wonder if I am going to lose from the wraps or from getting up and down all day to run to the bathroom. Whatever works!

I have to say, this morning my stomach did look a bit more toned and less like my stomach. Time will tell. But if it does work, I am 100% doing a wrap party of my own before my trip to St. John in June!

And don’t worry, I am giving up the Cheetos for now.

    I have never even heard of a wrap party…. I just stopped by from SITS to say hello and I’m amazed!

    I have a girlfriend who sells those wraps and I’ve been wondering if they worked! Let us know if you think the results last!

      I definitely look different today. Will see how it goes after the next few days.

    I had a wrap done at a spa once and thoroughly enjoyed it. Having a wrap party sounds like a great idea because you get to socialize with your friends.

      It was a lot of fun and I got to meet some great ladies. Plus there was some wine beforehand 😉

    Interesting. I could use this before my trip to Hawaii in April! Although I am sure after my first few meals there, it won’t make a difference! 🙂

      Very good point- maybe I should wait and get it after a week of indulging…

  5. Elisa March 25, 2013 at 1:28 pm #

    what?! does that really work?? i will do a party with you in april

    • anothercleanslate March 25, 2013 at 1:36 pm #

      If it ends up working, I want to do one in May. We can plan for when you are in town 🙂

  6. Theresa March 25, 2013 at 1:51 pm #

    Please do keep us posted! I would totally roll myself up in saran wrap if it meant a few inches 🙂

  7. Shay March 25, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

    Is there a way to maybe wrap more tightly so that you can have the Cheetos for breakfast and still lose inches? Because that’s the only way the wraps would work for me…:)

  8. Rena Lynn March 25, 2013 at 4:10 pm #

    Cool! I need those wraps for my bikini party.

  9. Ellie March 25, 2013 at 4:14 pm #

    I never heard of those before. Pretty interesting! Can’t wait to see your updates. Hopefully it works out well.

  10. Dana @ Celiac Kiddo March 25, 2013 at 9:03 pm #

    Wow, I’ve never heard of that before! Hope it works and is worth all the crinkling 🙂

  11. Melissa March 26, 2013 at 1:39 pm #

    It was great wrapping you! Thank you for sharing your experience and I will be sharing your story..love it! If anyone is interesting in getting wrapped let me know melmcdonald.myitworks.com

      I’ll definitely be calling to set up a party before St. John!

      • Lucy Ball (@LucyBall15) March 26, 2013 at 7:47 pm #

        I certainly hope you will call me. I am SO there. I honestly wondered about this. My tanning salon offers them. Woops. Did I say tanning salon? I meant, my hair salon. Yeah. That. Oh, if you feel that grabby feeling in your bum? It was me. Grabbed your button. 😉

      • Another Clean Slate March 26, 2013 at 7:58 pm #

        You should definitely try it. Two people told me I looked thinner today- and they didn’t know I had done it!

        You can grab my button anytime. I think that’s a first for me! 🙂

  12. icescreammama March 27, 2013 at 11:11 pm #

    never heard of this!! i thought they’d be serving wraps! haha. this is weird and yet, i am intrigued. anything that lets me continue eating ice cream is worth a try! 🙂

  13. Vanessa March 28, 2013 at 5:20 am #

    I swear I saw one of these wraps done on TV 20 or more years ago. I wonder if it would minimize cellulite?

  14. Stacie @ Snaps and Bits March 28, 2013 at 8:33 am #

    I’ve never heard of this. So, it’s not just loss of water weight? I must admit, I’m typically skeptical about stuff like this 😉

    • Another Clean Slate March 28, 2013 at 8:40 am #

      I was skeptical as well, but it’s been 4 days and I can still see a difference. I’ll keep you posted!

  15. iasoupmama March 28, 2013 at 10:14 am #

    Interesting! I’m glad you had fun!

  16. cynkingfeeling March 28, 2013 at 10:31 am #

    How often can/do people use the wraps? Like many of the other commenters, I’ve never heard of this.

    • Another Clean Slate March 28, 2013 at 10:37 am #

      I THINK she said you could use every 4 days. This is the Web site- http://www.melmcdonald.itworks.net

      • Melissa March 28, 2013 at 5:02 pm #

        Yes, you can do 2 wraps, every 72 hrs! You can wrap until you get your desired results and they are easy enough to apply at home and can get shipped to your house. I was very skeptical at first also, but now I am hooked! melmcdonald.myitworks.com

  17. Joe March 28, 2013 at 10:57 am #

    Damn it, I’m out of Saran Wrap.

  18. Jamie@SouthMainMuse March 28, 2013 at 11:21 am #

    Well, this is the first I’ve heard of this for an official party. And what is it about Cheetos? I buy them every now and then “for the kids” and I’m the only one who eats them. I can’t resist getting a fix every now and then.

  19. nataliedeyoung March 28, 2013 at 2:15 pm #

    *Sigh*, what we women go through! Now the question is – can this be done at home? 😉

  20. Michelle Longo March 28, 2013 at 3:47 pm #

    This is very interesting… I’m going to have to check this out!

  21. AzimeraLane March 28, 2013 at 4:58 pm #

    OMG I Want to do this!

    • Melissa March 28, 2013 at 5:03 pm #

      I do wrap appointments, parties or they can ship to you:)

  22. theroadfromhawaii March 28, 2013 at 5:50 pm #

    Sounds interesting, I would like to try the wrap. http://annbennett2.blogspot.com

  23. Kiki March 28, 2013 at 11:19 pm #

    I have several friends doing this as well and I’ve been wondering about them. This is a good look at a wrap party…something to think about. You know, when my belly isn’t all full of baby. 🙂

    • Another Clean Slate March 29, 2013 at 7:30 am #

      Haha yes! Keep that baby cushioned and check out the wraps after 🙂
