Default Slender wrap

Just wondering if this worked. I was thinking the other day, i weighed this amount in high school but yet, i was 4 sizes smaller in high school. That makes NO sense to me. Slender wrap claims to wrap you in this solution and it takes inches (6-30) off in the first wrap, like your body used to be years ago. Made me think Hmmm. I wonder if i am just full of toxins, supposedely your body collects toxins as you age, if i got rid of the toxins, would i lose some inches?

I wish it worked like that. Unfortunately, it's just a sales pitch. You'll lose some water weight, which will come back in a day or two. It has no effect on the fat in your body. It also has no effect on "toxins" because we don't really store toxins. Our bodies do a very good job of eliminating the things we don't need. The threat of "toxins" has been used for pitching a lot of unnecessary products because it sounds scary.

Our bodies change as we age. You might have been a few sizes smaller, but maybe you had more lean mass then and more fat now, which will do that. There are a lot of things that could have happened since then to change your size/shape without changing your weight. I know that no matter how much weight I lose, my butt will never be as small as it was in high school

Also, with vanity sizing so prevalent nowdays, it may be that the clothing sizes aren't the same anymore. I've read that a 14 today was a size 10 less than five years ago.
