Detox

My mom was telling us the other day that she'd been in for a facial. She was at the check out desk when the phone rang and the receptionist answered the call while she was processing Mom's bill. Mom could only hear the receptionist's half of the conversation, but that half was really all she needed. Here's what she heard...

"Can I help you?"

"Detoxing wrap? Well we have a session where they wrap your arms, legs, abdomen, and buttocks in saran wrap. Then you sweat for fifty minutes."

"No . . . fifty . . . five - zero."

"Ok, have a nice day."


And you know what? I don't blame you, Mysterious Caller. I wouldn't have wanted to pay money to do that either.

LOL! yes... that's true. My fried just started working at a spa that does these Lypo wraps, and lypo massages. I was reading about them, and well... I don't know about paying money for that.

Yikes! No thanks. And...about 13 different comments just came to mind but I just wont go there.

You're welcome.

there are lots of spas doing this. some are that you lose water weight, but it has no other benefits. there are some that keep you hydrated but you lose inches.

how desperate are we to lose weight? this article was actually in a magazine and gave a home remedy so you could avoid the high prices.

SAD!

Getting ready to go sweat 50 minutes myself. Yuck.

Back in high school, I used to wrap myself in seran wrap and go running. I would limp home chaffed and carrying an extra 15 pounds of sweat.

Looking back, I just have one thing to say -- fat is okay. I kind of like mine. When I fall, I kind of bounce which is good, right?

My mom totally did that one time. And she loved it! LOL! Not for me, though...I hate feeling confined.
