I’ll admit – I’ve been a bit lazy over the past few weeks with Operation Skinny.

But, last night I attended a Wrap Party – you know, those toxic releasing wraps you put on your belly, thigh, etc.? I went in pretty hesitant, but after watching someone else do it, I figured why the hell not.
Sarah, our host, was super helpful in explaining how it all worked. The Ultimate Body Applicator is a non-woven cloth wrap that has been infused with a powerful, botanically-based formula to deliver maximum tightening, toning, and firming results where applied to the skin. She took my measurements (see below), photos, and began to place the wrap on my belly. Fair warning – it’s cold! It feels like you’ve just applied Icy Hot that never gets hot. After the wrap was in place, she used saran wrap to hold it in place so I could move around, which I still didn’t. It kind of felt like I had a back brace on!
As we waited for the magic to happen, Sarah explained a few of the other products It Works! sells, including a delicious chocolate protein shake (mixed with peanut butter and banana). The product line is pretty awesome – a bit expensive, but it seems to work.
45 minutes later, we removed my wrap and remeasured. Overall (waist, naval and hips), I was down 2 1/2 inches! The wrap is said to work for the next 72 hours as long as you continue to drink water, lay off sugary sweets (it’s killing me to not have green tea!) and eat reasonably healthy (that may not happen tonight – it’s date night, and fried provel might be involved. i cannot say no to fried provel).
I’ll post my updates via Twitter for the next three days, and be sure to check back for the before and after photos.
