I'm Confused

First of all I want to start out by thanking everyone for the well-wishes.
I am feeling a little better - still coughing but better.
It's nice to know that I have friends out there who care, so...."Thank You."

The next thing on my mind has absolutely nothing to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas preparations (well, I guess it might have some connection with Thanksgiving but I really don't think it'd be very comfortable if it did).

Are you wondering what I'm rambling about??


I'm sure you've all heard about the new great "body shapers" that are sooo popular right now.

Well, I go online to see what all the hubbub's about & this is what I see.

Can someone please tell me what in the world these girls are doing in body shapers??

They already look pretty tiny to me & I'm pretty sure that putting one of those thingy's on is not going to make my waist, bottom or thighs look like that.

What has happened to truth in advertising? Was there ever such a thing?

Just looking at all of those pictures makes me want to invite them over for some Thanksgiving turkey & dressing and force them to eat it.

I think I'm finished with my rant for the time being - thanks for letting me vent.

Hope your Thanksgiving preparations are going well - let's share those menu plans.

Isn't that the truth! I have one of those things and when I wear it I can't wait to take it off! :0)

Amen Sister! I was watching Kelly Pickler's video...Don't You Know You're Beautiful and alllll the people in the video were beautiful. I thought it kind of defeated the purpose. Great post! :) Ang

You're so right.

I think I would be bulging out in places I shouldn't be if I tried to get into one of a sausage!

Ms. Tee said...

Oh, funny! I say invite them over and tell them to bring their elastic waist pants. :)

Yeah, I can't understand that either. I saw an infomercial once that actually used normal sized girls and they did look a lot better with the shapers. But that's the only one that seems to have some basis in reality!

Haha! :) I do love me some "Spanx" though!!

McMommy said...

HA! I've never used one of those things. They scare me to death! Imagine trying to stuff yourself into it....and then trying to wiggle yourself OUT of it! would take me all day...

OMGosh, I'm sure I'll need those after Thanksgiving...heck I need them now. :-(

Glad your feeling better. :-)

I hopped over from Ang...I have often wondered the same thing...interesting how they never get women to look like "us" to get a picture...instead they pick a size 0...who needs a better waist or a tucked in tummy when you are that small...I mean seriously...=)
You have an awesome blog. I love your pics...I am now a follower, don't be freaked..I am updating profile pictures so you will see a pic soon!

Glad you're feeling better!
I know, I know...wish they'd make my butt and belly look as good as those girls'!!!
