It Works! Wraps for weight loss?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I have tried wraps before, you know, the kind that look like mud. They didn't do anything. My friend is part of this It Works! group and the pictures are inspiring. My question is, are they really natural and safe to use? Has anyone here tried it? I trust this group of mama's more than I trust my facebook friends, most just think that I am weird for wanting natural. I have been trying dieting, high protein and low carb and it hasn't really been doing a whole lot. I need a little extra to get me headed in that direction and it doesn't help that I work from home and sit at a computer all day. 

 

Anyway, just wanted some opinions and if any of you have heard of this group before I spend that kind of money trying it. I tried to do a search, but do you know how many time "it works" comes up in a conversation. LOL. 

 

TIA!

I did an at spa treatment, and it did work. I lost a couple of inches, all together 3ish, from small different parts of my body. But you easily put them back on once you start doing anything that isn't healthy. Spa treatments not worth the hundreds of dollars you are going to drop on them. I go to Sally's buy roughly the same mud, some plastic wrap and large Ace bandages and do it myself. Sea salt scrub, then mud, wrap up and get comfy, you aren't going anywhere for 45 minutes. un wrap, wash off.

 

Its not a lot, but it helps me keep smooth and my skin bright. I feel better about myself.

Well, I caved and tried one. It is lotion that is made of natural stuff, I asked to see ingredients first even though she prefers the all natural too and I had a pretty good feeling about her recommending them. It has things like Rosemary, Green tea, Horsetail and several others. It gave off this nice warming sensation the whole time, kinda relaxing. Waited and then took it off. I'm hooked! Had results instantly and they got better over the next three days. So I don't believe that it was water weight, I drink a lot and if it was just that I would have seen it come back over three days not get better. Now, of course, if you don't eat healthy and sit around all day you are just going to put it back on. But if it helps firm up this pooch from having my twins, which I was told would never go away I'm all for it! 

 

Yeah, spa treatments is something that I could never afford. I can't even afford to go get my nails done, but this was affordable. :)

It has to be from a distributor.
