On a Weight Loss Journey? Want to See Immediate Results?

If you're anything like us, you've probably resolved to make some changes this new year.  Most of us start each year with the commitment to improve in some way - Whether it's to drink more water, to get organized, or to strive for more BALANCE in your life, people tend to begin the new year with a renewed spirit and optimism for the future. The most common new years resolution is to lose weight.  Change isn't always easy though, especially when you don't see immediate results from your efforts.    No matter how you accomplish it, losing weight is not easy.  Whether you opt for the traditional diet and exercise route or you've decided that it's time for bariatric surgery (ie adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y or...
If you're anything like us, you've probably resolved to make some changes this new year.  Most of us start each year with the commitment to improve in some way - Whether it's to drink more water, to get organized, or to strive for more BALANCE in your life, people tend to begin the new year with a renewed spirit and optimism for the future. The most common new years resolution is to lose weight.  Change isn't always easy though, especially when you don't see immediate results from your efforts.    No matter how you accomplish it, losing weight is not easy.  Whether you opt for the traditional diet and exercise route or you've decided that it's time for bariatric surgery (ie adjustable gastric banding, gastric bypass surgery (Roux-en-Y or RNY), sleeve gastrectomy, biliopancratic diversion, etc.) weight loss requires a commitment and for most of us, is not at all easy.  To me, losing weight is a journey.  I don't just talk the talk.  I walk the walk.  My own weight loss journey has been a bit of a roller coaster.  At times I'm up.  At times I'm down. At times I'm docked in the station waiting for another "go" moment of inspiration.  Know that regardless of where you are on your personal  journey, you can  feel confident when you wear Slimpressions.  No matter if you've put on a few extra pounds or if you have lost lots of weight and want help smoothing out any loose skin, Slimpressions shapewear is right for you.  There's nothing like a little immediate gratification for your hard work, right?  Check out these Before & After results.  Not sure what product is right for you?  I'd encourage you to check out our Product Selector to help you choose.  We created Slimpressions for the less-than-perfect body.  No matter your body type (straight, pear, spoon, hourglass, top hourglass, inverted triangle, oval or diamond), we have something for you.  Unless, of course, you're Barbie...Slimpressions is real shapewear for real women.

Making Your Weight Loss Goals Public

As we begin another new year, 'tis the season for setting resolutions.  Weight loss, eating right and exercising more are the most popular goals for people each year, however, within weeks (if not days) we tend to fall into our old patterns and let these resolutions slip away.   Studies show that when you make your goals public, you are more likely to stick to them.  Not only do goal-setters have a sense of accountability when they make their goals public, but they also feel supported by others.  We loved this story about how one man is making his weight-loss goals public.   So are you ready to tell the world what your goals are?  If you'd like support from your fellow Slimpressionistas, let us know what your new year's resolutions are (...

‘Twas the Night Before the Holiday Party

'Twas the night before the holiday party, when all through the air Everyone was chattering about what they would wear.   Her stockings had runs and not a lick of support; Her sweater was too tight and her skirt was too short.   When all of a sudden she recalled a site; Slimpressions was the name, order she might.   She browsed The Top Sleekret Collection and The Bottom Line. She settled on The Have Nots and a Long Leg Shaper; She knew she'd be fine.   She walked into the party stylish and slim; The women with envy, the men sang a hymn.   With Slimpressions - Oh, what a sight; Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
