Fat around the belly is a common condition for many people. For example, I have a good friend who has had fat around her belly from the time she was a child. She would always feel self-conscience and awkward when it came time to be seen in a bathing suit. Whenever we would go to the lake or pool she would cover up her belly with a towel. She would always ease on into the water and keep her towel around her waist till she practically was in the water. She would also till me that her intimate relationship with her husband has always been awkward. She would never want to be seen naked unless the room was dark. For years she would have low self-esteem because of the fat surrounding her belly.
About a year ago things changed dramatically for my friend. She was tired of living with the fat in her life. She wanted to get rid of it. She consulted with different people and incorporated many different ideas to help her get rid of the fat. The following are some habits that she developed to help get rid off her belly.
Good nutritious meals became a part of her life. Some common types of foods she would eat were pizza, pasta and meats. She would also make a stop once a day at some of her favorite fast food restaurants. She got rid of the fast food visits and selected healthier types of foods. For example, some healthy foods she has been eating are salads, fish, whole grains and vegetables.
My friend replaced snacks such as donuts, chips and cookies with the Shaklee Cinch Shake Mix. The Shaklee Cinch Shake Mix is a wonderful milkshake type of drink that will help a person lose and manage their weight. Whenever my friend has a craving for a snack the Cinch Shake Mix it what she will drink. The shake comes in wonderful chocolate and vanilla flavors that she enjoys.
My friend now goes to the gym. She has a personal trainer who gives her tips on what she could do to work the fat area around her belly. The trainer recommended doing daily sit-ups and some cardio workouts. She goes to the gym everyday except for Sundays for about an hour.
She rubs Avon’s Super Shape Anti Cellulite & Stretch Mark Cream around her belly. She uses the cream about three times a day. She bought the cream at a local Avon store for the price of $16 dollars. There has been a change in her belly area but she is not a hundred percent sure if it is partly from the cream.
Daily belly massages have become a part of her routine. Once a day before she goes to bed she massages all over her belly. She does this to help the fat and blood circulation to keep moving. She wants to avoid the storage of fat in keep building. Once a month she will even go get a massage at the spa and request to have her belly massaged.
She would make daily positive self-statements to herself. For example, in the bathroom handing next to her mirror she has a few different statements that she repeats five times. Some of those statements are, “I will lose weight. I will have a flat belly. I look wonderful.” Her positive self-talk has given her encouragement to keep up with her healthy habits. The positive self-talk has also helped her feel better about who she is and what she looks like.
The nutritious meals, Shaklee Cinch Shake, the gym, Avon’s cream, belly massages and positive self talk have totally got rid of the blubber that she carried with her for many years. She was happy to be able to get rid of the fat without using diet pills and medication. Today her self-esteem is high and she feels proud to walk around in her bathing suit. She even has a healthy happy relationship with her husband. Her new habits of living worked for her and I think can work for many others too. Her persistent and dedicated attitude got her the flat belly that she deserves.
