Mama got her groove back

I’ve been having a great vacation. Lots of relaxing. Hanging out. Laughing. All that sort of thing.

But for some reason, I’ve been feeling a little, well, blah. Not a lot. Just a bit.

I wondered why … then I realized that I was spending a lot of time on the beach watching people walk around in bikinis while I was wearing a bathing suit that was handed down to me by a friend who’d lost weight and gave me all her “fat” clothes.

Now, let’s be clear: I’m a realistic person. A practical sort. So, logically, I understand that once a stomach has been stretched out like, say, for example this:

It just makes sense that it will never again look like, oh, say this:

 

But it didn’t change the fact that I was feeling a tad blah, nonetheless. I decided that a change was in order.

So what did I do?

Well, I lost 10 pounds! Yes, I lost 10 pounds on vacation … pretty amazing, eh? And how did I manage this … by chugging liquid meals? Signing up for a Cape Cod boot camp?

No, no. I simply went shopping! Have you heard of the “MiracleSuit”? The slogan for this bathing suit is “Look 10 lbs lighter in 10 seconds.” And you know what? It’s true. I really did lose 10 lbs just by putting on one of their suits. (Yes, of course, I bought two!)

After my shopping trip, I returned to the pool where my family was hanging out waiting for me. I had a bounce in my step and a smile on my face. And did they notice the new swimsuit? Comment on how flattering it was … how great I looked?

Yeah, as if.

But they did notice that Mama had gotten her groove back. (Thanks Miraclesuit, I owe ya one!)

  1. As a certain conference approaches I’m feeling all self conscious, which is completely unlike me. Sigh. Think I can wear one of those suits around the Hilton?

  2. Bathing suit around the Hilton? No, no … that’s what Spanx and high heels are for, aren’t they?? :) Stick with me, we’ll be fine just the way we are!

  3. I’m waiting for the truly miraculous “skinny suit” – you know, you put it on and instantaneously become the size of your dreams. I’m so glad you had a nice vacation!

  4. Julie – how cute are you pregnant? I love that shot :) I am so so so in the market for one of those swimsuits, that is really amazing. Could have used it at the beginning of my east coast vacation though 😉

    Already got my Spanx packed for next week, still need to buy a pair of high heels b/c I don’t own any. Yes, I just said that!!! Yikes.

  5. I bought a miracle suit a few summers ago and I LOVE it too. It sucks my jiggly bits in…totally worth the money.

  6. Sounds like my kind of suit! Enjoyed the post, Julie.

  7. Now that is a weight loss plan I like.

  8. I don’t think my stomach looked anything like that before I had The Boy…

  9. Photos!! We need photos of you in the miracle suit. And I would like an entire miracle wardrobe. Do they make shirts, pants, skirts, dresses, etc., etc.??

  10. I’ll head out shopping for the ‘miracle suit’ this afternoon. Thanks for the tip!
