    Default It Works body wraps

    Has anyone tried these things? The reviews are so polarized - it's really hard to judge on whether they are worth trying.

    From what I have heard and seen they are a temporary fix for like a nite out in a certain little black dress. I wouldn't waste my money on them. Lots of complaints on Ripoffreport.com and the reviews on Amazon don't look too terrific either.

    One of the joys of having had surgery was being able to never again do some bloody fad or other to try and lose weight or squeeze into something. Even if it worked, I wouldn't do it. You're 40 days out from surgery - this is a journey and it takes time. Maintain your focus on what will make the surgery work for you and forget the BS fads.

    Please don't make judgments on why I am asking this question. I am fully aware of how many days it has been since my surgery. I am not trying to make it all happen at once. Not that I should have to explain my thought process, but I saw some new posts on another thread about someone's great happiness with their plastic surgeon and it made me think about the loose, saggy flab that we all have to deal with at some point. Then I thought about the lady I work with who is a distributor for the body wraps, and I wondered if anyone in this forum had any experience with them, because if they do work, they might be helpful for people who are further along. End of story.

    I had one a long time ago. I had a coupon book and got it for free, so I thought I would try it. I didn't notice any difference in my body, but whatever chemical was in it made all my pimples go away. I don't have great skin and that stuff was like a miracle.

    Yes, I have actually tried the wraps, and I may have seen a slight change but it was gone by the next day. I wouldnt waste my money again.

    I'm sure this will go the way of cellulite creams, which didn't work. My SIL tried to sell me a $150 Nuskin machine that vibrated creams onto your face, etc. She quit talking about it because it didn't work. But I didn't have the heart to tell her it reminded me of the cellulite cream fad.


    "Lee, by "own it!" your daughter means that you should be proud of your accomplishment and understand that you deserve this. Not because you have to pay it forward or backward to justify your own benefits. She means that this is YOUR accomplishment, and accomplishing that for yourself is enough. You do not have to fix everybody. And you do not owe anyone for the benefits you have earned. They are YOURS!" Ann2
