I promised I would do it, so here it is....... Helen, under NO circumstances is Big J to see this clip !
Apologies for my haggered appearance, its the end of a long week of half term which has seen me at hospital with No 1 son and alone with the twins for the week !
I may never recover from revealing this on film, I am doing it in the name of science and for all those out there that want the tummy back that they had as 14 yr olds !
I had several attempts at filming so bare with it when it goes onto the belt. I couldn't see what I was filming, so had to have a second attempt and yes, I know those pants are truly shocking ! But cheap !
3 WEEKS IN !
It's 3 weeks today since I received my Slendertone Abs belt. It has to be said these days I have many balls to juggle so staying focused on one thing can prove difficult. Not so with my Abs belt. In fact, if I could stand it I would wear it in bed.... hhhmm ! now there's an idea, sure hubby would find it "interesting" they do say variety is the spice and all that ......
I have worn it as per instruction 5 days out of every 7 for the last 3 weeks (recommended 6 week programme in total) I am upto 25 minutes at level 75 ! Anybody who has one of these belts or has experience of the levels involved will know this is no mean feat ! As previously described it can get quiet uncomfortable when you start moving up the levels but the very definite PLUS side is you actually SEE your tummy contract . Its a very odd sensation and I recommend time whilst wearing the belt is probably best spent trying to distract yourself , I like twitter, works for me and time flies. Drinking the wine and eating chocolate is probably not recommended.
So is it working ? I hear you scream ! For me , YES ! There is a definite ridge below where the belt sits. I measured my waistline (or rather where my waist should be ) 3 weeks ago and it was .......
well, lets just say there is an inch difference . (you don't think I was really going to tell you how much I measure did you ?) The days of being a trim 34/24/34 are long gone. In fact they never were ! but its more of a difference in the feel and look of my tummy. I can feel something hard sitting just below the wobbly tummy and dare I say, I think it might actually be tummy muscles!
So yes, I am thrilled with this lazy woman's tummy cruncher and intend to see the trial through to the end.
The family has got used to my screams now and don't even come running anymore. "Just mummy tightening her tummy"......
Twin sons. Contrary to popular belief, they were not small babies, one weighted in at 7lb, 2 oz and the other at 5lb, 6 oz. I was big when I was carrying them. The resulting tummy I now lug around with me resembles a pot belly pig and no amount of exercise (not that I stuck religiously to anything) can shift it. I still have ok legs, arms and quite a neat little bottom, if I say so myself. But my tummy and non existent waistline ...... Nooooo !
Me age 29 - I want THAT body back !
The twins have been neglected, they have missed out….. I refuse to go swimming with them. I hate how I look these days in a swimsuit. I have been told by friends they can't understand what I am talking about "I would die for your body" But I remember the body I used to have ! The washboard stomach, the skinny jeans without the muffin top. I looked great ! I want that body back, I want to look like Demi Moore on a budget !
I happened upon a tweet by a PR Person who was sending out Slendertone Abs belts for review. Being the cheeky girl I have become now that I can hide behind my laptop and tweet away to virtual strangers all day long. I jumped in and asked him to send me one. He duly obliged ! Whoop! It arrived special delivery the very next day. Now that's what I call impressive.
I have used it twice since receiving it on Saturday, its very simple to set up, you need to charge it for about 3 hours beforehand and the 3 jelly like wet/cold patches are uncomfortable when they first come into contact with your skin. But after that its all systems go. They advise you to set the level to 15 to start with, what they don’t tell you is that you have to do it to both sides ! I had my first session getting unto 49 on the left side and zero on the right !
.After only two sessions I am convinced it will work. It’s difficult to explain the feeling except to say you can really feel it pulling and rippling your stomach muscles. A sure sign it must be doing something ! It’s been compared to childbirth contractions or the feeling you get when you have a tattoo ! I have had both, and would definitely go for the tattoo option myself. I think the contractions comparison may well be if you ramp it right to the top straight away !
At risk of massive emotional trauma to myself I put on my swimsuit, purely for scientific purposes you understand. The obligatory "before" and "after" shot. So convinced am I that my new toy will work. Sadly, when I saw how I looked I couldn’t bring myself to publish it. As for my poor 15 yr old son who took the picture, he will never be the same again ! I promise though at the end of the programme (about 4 weeks) if there is a significant change to my shape I will publish!
