“My dear you have a tummy! And you didn’t have that when we were in Bora last year!” said, my friend last Saturday as we were fitting clothes for our best friend’s wedding that’s going to be in a week’s time.
Oh dear. Gone are the days wherein I can just binge eat to the max ( you should see me eat! ) and get away with it with NO tummy, and a slim physique. I promise, I really eat alot as I am very much of a food lover. Now is the point wherein I must accept the fact that my metabolism is finally slowing down, and it just can’t keep up with my binge eating. The first sign of my slowing metabolism – signs showing in my tummy. Argh. I totally hate it. I look semi-pregnant now! Okay, a little bit exaggerating there. Maybe I look like I have a small, small, small bump.
As much as I kept on promising that I’d exercise and do crunches to trim down my tummy, it’s a week to go, for goodness’ sake. With my figure-hugging dress all ready for some photo ops with me in it ( or without it, kidding! ) , I opted to run to Rustans to get myself some Spanx. Yes, I need some figure-shaping ASAP!
I was able to go home with Slim Cognito Mid-Thigh Shaper. It is said that this is thicker in terms of material than the other Spanx varieties, but I found this really light, and easy to wear. It just felt like stockings on my body! I didn’t feel the compression, but I definitely saw how it trimmed down my tummy and waistline. I was in awe! Despite the hefty pricetag, I can say that it’s all worth it. I promise to take care of this, and hand-wash it myself as this is now my secret weapon. Now, I can be confident in wearing figure-hugging clothes, without the risk of having my tummy noticed!
And oh, I really really promise to exercise! Still no excuse not to do that! Will really find the time – as I’ve bought Pilates and Yoga DVDs already. I really hope that I’d get the discipline to exercise – any volunteer bullies? Haha!
Oh, the perks of getting old.
