    Spanx no Thanx

    Hi all,
    Im really struggling here with this big belly so I decided to give the Spanx undies a try. Forget it, they just didn't do anything. My stomach is firm so instead of the Spanx holding me in my stomach pushed back - quite funny really. Im a 37" waist with or without them.
    Any other ideas anyone ?

    Spanx don't make me thinner, but they do smooth out the bumps for me.

    Marks and sparks - old fash control pants are my favourite.

    Lost lots, put 2 stone on... want to loose lots more.

    I have some spanx and love them. They smooth you out and I must have soft fat as I lose an inch or two.

    I may be resorting to these for a Christmas party in December.... to smooth things out, but also as they might help me to not overeat as much!!! x

    If you're thinking about cheating on the Cambridge Diet.... just think of all that money going to waste on shakes, and how much longer you'll have to stick with them from setbacks to goal!

    I love them!! They're awesome and make everything smoothed out rather than jiggly :P

    I did try an own-brand kind before and I gotta say..Spanx all the way, the others did nothing hehe

    But yea, I must be really squishy too then 'cause I loose a couple of inches... especially thighs

    I LOVE SPANX! total life saver. I hate back fat and all that and spanx just smooth it out. I feel so much more comfortable wearing clothes cos you just cant see the bumps. x
