You know when it seems like just yesterday you could fit into all the clothes you loved to wear and then like magic...
POOF! Nothing fits anymore?
That's EXACTLY what happened to me.
One evening, I was getting ready for a fun night out with friends and family.
I was standing in front of a full-length mirror trying to squeeze into my favorite pair of jeans.
I took one quick look and instantly felt disgusted with the reflection I saw.
The jeans that used to zip up with ease suddenly were barely able to squeeze past my hips. And when I tried to button them, my stomach burst out over the sides, creating an unsightly "muffin top".
In a frantic panic and with very little time to spare I did the only thing I could think of.
I grabbed a white bathroom towel and shoved it between my jeans and stomach in a last minute effort to stretch them out so that I could finally get the button to close.
So there I was blow-drying my hair and putting my makeup on with a white bathroom towel bulging out the front of my broken zipper jeans.
I ended up having to wear an ugly oversized sweater just to cover up my stretched out pants and broken zipper. Yeah, really embarrassing.
For over 4 hours at dinner, ALL I could think about was how uncomfortable I felt.
After a few awkward trips to the bathroom trying to hide the tears running down my face, I decided that only "wanting" a change was NOT enough anymore.
I NEEDED to make a change and FAST!
When I got back home, I was determined to do everything in my knowledge and power to get the flat belly I've always desired.
So I exercised a lot MORE and ate a lot LESS. And honestly, it was HORRIBLE!
I would run on the treadmill for 30 minutes followed by an insanely difficult weight training program I got from one of my fitness magazines.
And then I would still hit the elliptical or treadmill machines for another 30-45 minutes of running.
After an insane 3 weeks that I nicknamed "Exercise Hell", I had dropped ONLY 2 pounds of measly water weight.
I was miserable and frustrated...
...Until my [future] husband let me in on a little known weight loss trick he discovered back in his college wrestling days that we now call the Curve-Ball Fat Shrinking Effect.
