Julie, we are soul sisters. My mother also gave me a hand-me-down trainer bra, a cast off from my big sister. The bra was so big I had to tie the straps together in the back to make it fit.

Perhaps I can blame my eating disorder on the trauma I encountered with my used trainer bra. Or perhaps I should admit that I don't have an ounce of will power.

I'm definitely stocking up on V8 juice tomorrow. Kathie, if you have $4,000 to spend on a diet, please send it to me. I'll fly down to TV and body check you anytime you want to eat something fattening.

Ohhhhh, I gotta go get some sleep. It is past my bedtime and I should not be typing.

I figure it's because she knew every woman needs at least one gay male friend.

Oh How I hate to admit this , but you girls have brought back a very funny memory .(We are still in "girl talk arent we?)

My mother simply would not buy me a training bra, she said I didnt need one yet and that was that so.......

I went down stairs to my aunt Rosies house who lived on the first floor, went sneaking thru her drawers (the dresser kind) when she wasant looking, and found an old brassiere of hers and ran with it as fast as I could! I think that bra must have been a size 48 D cause I safety pinned it in a million places to make it fit and stuffed the cups with bobby socks. But the worst was yet to come, I put on a chiffon type see thru blouse and paraded around the neighborhood proudly. OMG Im turning red just thinking about it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you imagine what the neighbors must have thought?????? What on earth possesed me?????

Nonie, you tickled my memory bank.
When I was about 11 my best friend Emily inherited her older cousin's strapless bra. She wore it one day as we walked 5th Avenue in our Brooklyn neighborhood.
When we got home Em's mother looked at her and said "didn't you wear a bra when you left the house today?" Yup you guessed it, she lost her bra somewhere between 6th Street & 15th Street that fine summer day.
Still makes me laugh.

Mickey,
Good one.

I thought they would NEVER grow. I was fifteen and stuffing tissues in them and then I would lose them in all the wrong places.....OH boy. I thought it was just 'cause I was a motherless kid. I have done so many dumb things along that line, I can't even begin to think about it. I am blushing sitting here.

Do any of you remember garters? And sanitary belts? Horrors.

Whalen, this is hysterical. I can't even imagine that happening. Can you imagine the expression on the person's face who found it on the street? Ohhhh how I hated strapless bras!!

Default bra mishaps

This is not about me exactly, but I remember a girl in my 8th grade class who put foam rubber pads in her bathing suit for a boy-girl pool party and guess what? she jumped in the pool and the foam thingies popped out and floated up. You can imagine the teasing.

I'm sorry, but the idea of Keedy wading through Training Bra stories just makes me LMAO.

I saw a sign yesterday in an Acupuncture Clinic that they specialize in weight loss. I'm calling them on Monday. Anyone had any experience with acupuncture?

Oh my gosh, that would be soooooo embarrassing! Almost worse than having your "falsies" floating in the pool next to you would be showing up at school the next school day. That would be a story the kids would never forget, poor thing.

I have a friend who used acupuncture for a neck issue and it worked. However, while she was in the clinic the acupuncturist suggested she also use the acupuncture to boost her libido as well. My friend thought that would be a good idea, you know kind of like a "one stop shopping" experience.

The acupuncture was working like a charm, the neck pain was gone and libido was boosted. She and her husband were both happy until one day my friend re-injured her neck. How did she re-injure that neck you ask? You're right, the neck was injured during one of the libido boosting sessions, if ya know what I mean!

The next day my friend traded in her acupuncturist for a chiropractor.

Default Accupuncture

Having experienced extensive treatment for various muscular aches and pains, I would definitely not recommend the procedure. The accupuncturist in MA was much better than the one in TV. This is not covered by any health insurance and can be somewhat costly. Put your money to better use by joining a health club.

Just my opinion from personal experience....b
