The Tools I'm Using to Reduce My Big Behind

Layla Clayton
The list author says: "For me, it's always the mental battle that honks things up so here are a few tips that always work wonders for me:

Make your bed off-limits to everything but sleep and grown folks activities. When you get a good night's rest, you're less likely to bomb your body with empty carbs the next day.

Stay away from drive-thrus & vending machines - they're super-sized evil. If speed & convenience motivate you, make a week's worth of meals on the weekend & freeze them. Better to lose a few hours than gain a few sizes.

However, if you must eat out - actually go in the restaurant. It'll make you accountable for what you're eating. Think about
what you eat when you're out with friends and then what you eat when you're alone - scary gross, right? Don't be that person that gets 3 kids meals "for the collector toys" - your behind tells a different story.

Lastly, guys are competitive butts & girls are jealous witches - it's just the way we're wired. DO tell everyone you're trying to
tone up (accountability) but DON"T let people screw up your goals with petty BS. Spouses, siblings, and friends will undermine &
sabotage you at every turn (mostly unintentionally). Turn the tables on them. Instead of letting them lead you into temptation
(ha!), guide them into a healthier choices - like picking more active outtings for you to do together (who's up for kickball
in the park?).

I think the methods have gotten me farther than the tools but only time will tell. For the record, I've lost enough weight to
drop an entire size in the last 12 days by using them and am able to run (!) up 2 flights of stairs without getting winded. My
goal is to be dressing like a woman half my age by summer. Hope these help you meet your goals as well."

"don't dismiss it because you think it won't fit - i've seen it easily zip up a 3XL belly.  especially useful if you're avoiding certain exercises because of a jiggly belly - keeps it locked down.  i wear mine when i exercise and when i eat at home because the constriction makes you more aware of your intake."
