Reshaping or Diet & exercise?

Updated on May 18, 2012

Reshaping Or Diet & Exercise?

Why liposuction, tummy tucks, enhancements even reductions? Because they work and they dont work for some. You now have more choices, even if you start  later in life. For me i made a choice. My usual beauty routine, wasnt going to cut it. I was determined to be healthy strong and full of energy. Having a family of young adults(teens in English) challenged me to always look my best when i go to functions with them, or meet their friends occasionally. Most of all i was doing this for myself, the above was an added benefit.

A natual transition

Having 3 kids can do wonders to your waistline if  exercise and the right diet is ignored. I thought i could eat anything i wanted, and it would just not show. I must admit i had a fairly busy nursing job that kept me on my feet , so that had a major contribution in retrospect.

Then the fabulous 40's came!!! Life does begin at 40, well for me atleast. I must have morphed overnight, the night i turned 40!! I became acutely aware that my babysitting nightmares had long gone, i wasnt going to work night shifts for eternity ever!, and that my time was really my own. It was like hello world, here i come. You catch my drift right? I had this lease of fresh energy mentally........., not so physically.

Doing nights had taken the best part of me, but i was going to realign myself especially my new found social freedom!!! I noticed that i was more tired than usual, because i was taking more rest, and started to exercise, starting with aerobics, the gym, running and skipping. I have never been one to watch what i eat, but boy, i had to!

A new lifestyle

For the purpose of this article i am focusing on diet/exercise or Reshaping. On my part i assumed i could keep this up without the personal discipline that comes with regular exercise. I told myself i can do this every now and again, and before long, i was diverting from my new routine and literally just stopped, and i didnt even feel guilty about it.


Reshaping Garments

Well until now i didnt think it was necessary, but after slowing down or more honestly quitting my exercise routine, i was like who needs those things called corsets/modern girdles? A friend said to me, have you heard of reshapers or the body magic? She went on to explain the benefit. This is what caught my attention 'You can drop or lose 2-3 dress sizes in 10 minutes!! A bit skeptical at first i said show me. I have never looked back. I loved the fact that i could wear smaller dress sizes by wearing these undergarments. They are great for men too, as they get rid of the beer belly in minutes.

Diet and exercise

I now have a greater motivation for being fit and healthy as the reshaping garments make me lose weight and look good without the diet surgery pills or exercise. Very cost effective for me. I have highlighted how each of the few garments work.

CONCLUSION

I know everyone has different experiences, and perhaps having to wear reshapers for you is not as life changing or needs to be as mine, but i am interested in knowing what works for others, and how dieting and exercise works for you. I work from home and have to make time for regular exercise around my working hours. And if i forget to diet/exercise i have that alternative when getting dressed up i can use reshapers.I know many have tried yo-yo diets and felt frustrated in the process, and ignoring the pressure to look good, but focusing on being healthy for yourself and for those who matter in your world, what would you choose, or both even?
