Why did I end up getting VSG you ask?
When I tell y’all I tried 90% of the weight loss fads that have been out🤣🤣🤣
I remember back in 2012, when the IT WORKS WRAPS were hot. I had a girlfriend that use to sell them, and I just so happen to be one of her first clients.
The hype was real! She gave this whole spew about how the herbs and contents of the wrap would dissolve the toxins in your belly therefore helping you to lose inches around your waist.
So, the way these worked
1. You had to clean the area where you were going to apply the patch.
2. Then you would unfold this thin sheet covered with this insane amount of cream.
3. Place it on the area you want to “detox” then let it sit for about 45 mins.
Saran wrap was used to keep the wrap in place if you were going to be up and moving around. It held the wraps in place pretty good to me. And it’s cheap to buy so yeah.
There was this one time I had wraps all over my arms and belly. My whole top body looked like a saran wrap mummy.
Now granted it did work, but it was water weight. Literally! The moment I got parched that was it weight back on.
What I did enjoy was the scent of the infused cream it was very relaxing. Green tea and Rosemary are just a few of the ingredients that are in the cream mixture.
However, the wraps got a bit expensive after doing so many sessions. Back then I think the wraps were like $79. I had 6 people living in my house at the time on a student income and I had just had a baby. So it was crazy, and I was not willing to spend unnecessary money for the process the wraps took back then.
If I had only a little detoxing to do I would’ve just kept going until I got to my ideal size but that wasn’t the case.
The wraps took off water and inches, not pounds of weight.
This was just one of the many FADS.
