Has anyone tried the “It Works” body wraps? I have a friend who is now selling them and it made me curious! I have a lot of cellulite on my thighs and would be interested in trying this if it could help shrink my beasts! However, it is just water weight that you lose? Will it come right back after a couple of days? I’ve never done a wrap before, so I’m not sure too much about it!

@Lolasmomma: My friend works at a salon that does them and she thinks they’re amazing, but I’m super skeptical.

@Lolasmomma: I used them one time. Can’t say they helped, but the lady who sold them to me that I knew personally claimed she lost inches. She looks no different and actually stopped using them, but I don’t know why.
They SAY you don’t lose water weight because you are supposed to drink a ton of water while you wear the wrap, but I am not sure I believe that.
All in all, I wouldn’t waste my money on them because it is very temporary unless you keep up with them (and they are expensive–for 4 wraps it was $100). I wouldn’t even trust that the results will be temporary because they work for some people and not for others apparently.

@Lolasmomma: I tried it once, on my abdomen – I didn’t really see a difference at all.. Here are some pictures – left is the “before” – middle is right after I took off the wrap, and right is the next morning. I would venture to say that it might give you some immediate results (like if you wanted to use them right before a beach party or something) – but as far as a long-term ‘fix’, I’m not convinced at all.

I have a friend selling the “It Works” body wraps too. Its a total pyramid scheme – no different than Amway or Herbalife. Their major MO is to sign up distributors who in turn sign up more distributors. (See the pyramid?)
Personally I don’t believe any of it – wrapping your belly with saran wrap will NOT make you loose fat and cellulite. Yes your skin has elasticity to it so if you wrap it tight for a couple of hours it may appear that you lost a few lbs or inches, but this is not a permanent solution.
Remember, if its too good to be true, it probably is!

I think maybe for a quick fix but there is no way that this would be for actual loss of inches and fat,no way. I think it probably does work for a short period of time and I’ve been thinking about maybe doing it the day before my wedding for a little extra smoothness:)

I know a lot of people who swear by them. I haven’t tried them but I do know people who have lost inches, but I think that is mainly because they started using the wrap as the first step to start loosing weight and improve their lives.
I have to say that I LOVE their vitamins though. I took the ‘It’s Vital’ and ‘Greens’ up until they made me too nauseated during pregnancy. I felt great. I plan on using them again as soon as the doctor okays it.
I also plan on trying the wrap towards October/November because I have to spend a week on the beach surrounded by people who have never had children.
