Yes, I live many of those quotes

Kathie, tell me the truth; I've been thinking about buying one of those spanx thingies, but have feared the whole going to the bathroom thing...is it much more of a pain in the keester to go while wearing one?
Julie, I love you butttttt ( ) for this answer I'm going to PM you....LOL..

I bought some of the Spanx panties they do hold the Jelly Belly in but they leave panty lines so I don't wear them.

Maybe I will try the Spanx that goes to mid-thigh anyone try that style?

But then again maybe I will say the heck with it.

Geez no wonder I can't lose weight.


Halle,

Does that mean birthday cake? Happy Birthday!

I have a weakness for Sangria, too. I pretend it is good for me because I put a lot of fruit in it? I also throw a decent splash of Grand Marnier into that pitcher of red wine and fruit. When it goes into the glass, it gets topped with just a tiny bit of 7 Up. I know that sounds like a bad thing to do to something that has Grand Marnier in it, but what can I say.....I am who I am....... And then I dab a little Grand Marnier behind my ears. That stuff smells so wonderful.

And, girls, about those Spanx......where does it go???? That woman who invented those things must be a magician. All I know is Spanx worx.

Halle, those are the ones I use, mid-thigh style. Boomer's right, as usual, they worx....

Boomer, I love Grand Marnier.... maybe we should market it as a perfume???? I'll be the packaging designer for our new venture. The lady who invented spanx is a genius, where does it go? No one has mentioned that I have a panty line, Halle, at least none of the guys staring at my buttttttt......LOL...

Boomer,

I was just going down to my home gym to exercise when I saw your post.

I add the Diet Sierra Mist Ruby Splash to my Sangria, Yum. Notice I did say Diet.

Now to work off those Potato Chips!

After dabbing Boomer's Grand Mariner behind my ears, suddenly I have an urge to step out, get wild and purchase a pair of thigh length Spanx!

Nonie, of course body shapers are tight and uncomfortable .. they're supposed to be! How do you think they cram a size 16 body into size 10 clothes? If you can breathe wearing a body shaper, get a smaller size!

They're good for the high school renunion when you haven't seen your old friends in 35 years though. Worth not breathing for a night.

When I discovered Spanx, I thought the women who designed it were brilliant. But now I'm tired of my Spanx, and I find buying larger clothes is way more comfortable.

And Nonie, colon cleansers usually give you diahreaa and that is why you suddenly lose weight. And then you start eating normally and gain it back. But it sure is a neat way for colon cleanser companies to make a billion bucks.

Not that I haven't tried my share of miracle products. Remember the plastic device you put in your ear and pressed on it when you got hungry? Supposed to activate your acupunture points to suppress hunger. Haha. Right.

But honestly, I'm starting a diet tomorrow.

Oh Bare, I can always count on you to be the voice of reason and truth.

I think I was actually expecting someone to say that the thingies were comfortable and cool, hardly know your wearing them. Thankyou for the shot of reality, I think Ill save my 39.99 and let it all hang out, the confinement would just turn me into a huge grouch anyway.

Oh Nonie, sorry, I didn't mean to rain on your parade. I'm just as quick as anyone to go for the "miracle weight loss" plan. But I tried on one of those "slim in one minute" body shapers last Friday. It was way more comfortable and cool than the old rubber girdles. And comparatively speaking, I guess you hardly know you're wearing them. As long as there is air conditioning!

But when I wear a body shaper for any length of time, I still long to get home, get it off, and get into something comfortable. I think they're worth having around for a wedding or family reunion .. but not for daily wear.

None, don't worry kiddo, you're perfect the way you are.

Got a spanx for my son's wedding. After looking at the pictures I wondered why.

========================

(And thanks, friends, for bringing me back. More like the TOTV I used to know.)

Exclamation Eeeeeeeeeeeks!

Nonie! I tried on one of those one piece body suits and my underarms became part of my boobs! So, don't think it's odd when you get here if I'm smiling at you with my elbows!
