Tummy Toning Tuesday: Better than Shapewear

It seems that women have always been on a quest to have smaller waists and flatter tummies.  Picture Mammy tugging Scarlett O'Hara's corset tighter as Scarlett grasps the bedpost in Gone With the Wind!

Back when I was a little girl, I remember my mother wearing a girdle (even though she always had a tiny waist!).  For some unknown reason, one day when I was four years old, I felt a need to go get that girdle and show it to our pastor who had come for a visit!  That may have been the same day that he spilled his tea and I told him he better say a prayer quick, because my Mom was going to kill him!!   ;)  
(I'm actually surprised I lived to tell these stories on myself!!!)   

Modern women rely on Spanx to cinch it all in and smooth it all out.  The popularity of Spanx is probably in part due to its being promoted by Oprah. 

But my friend, Trisch, explains that there is another way:

Girdles, Spanx, Shapewear–all designed to help “cinch you in” and make you look slimmer.   But you don’t need them!   You have a God-given “girdle” of muscles that can naturally cinch you in, support your organs, and still allow you to breathe! ;)

Wow! I have never heard these stories before. I see one of your children in a whole new light. That knack for creative conversation must be genetic. :-) Nice reminder about the natural girdle of muscles, but will I have to give up my antioxidants (aka chocolate)? I confess that I although I really want that built-in girdle, I do enlist a little artificial help in the meantime, lol. I have to make a change though. It's pretty bad when you through you back out, trying to hold your tummy in.

Happy Busy Mama,
I can't stop laughing from your comment!! Thanks for stopping by and adding a sparkle of laughter to my day! :)

I'm thinking my built-in-girdle is beyond repair . . . but keep hoping for a miracle! And I know what you mean about throwing your back out while trying to hold your tummy in! It's a serious hazard! ;)
