IS THAT A WADDLE….OR WHAT???
So I’ve reached that age when I need to be concerned about the genetic curse that flows to me from my mother’s side of the family: the waddle. In case you don’t know what a waddle is, it’s the gift that gravity gives some of us in the form of loose skin in the neck area as we age.
Now, I guess I could consider surgery, but I’m more than a little chicken (although my neck screams “Turkey!”) to undergo the knife. Instead, I’ve been looking around for alternatives, and I came across an item called the Neckline Slimmer. Dr. Oz reported on his show that Consumer Reports says it does not work, and he recommends using night creams with Vitamin A or a cream with AHA’s or BHA’s instead.
However, almost all the Amazon.com product reviewers gave the Neckline Slimmer a thumbs up, and Philly Fox News gave it a test run with these results:

Well, I didn’t want to shell out the money to test this product, so I decided I could make one myself. I mean, really. What was the first thing you thought of when you saw the woman use the Neckline Slimmer in the above video? It’s merely a toilet tissue holder with glorified ends! And what better way to “wipe away” the flab? (OK..that was a little weak and a bit naughty.) So I quickly ripped off the holder from my least used bathroom, tossed the tissue, and searched my handy tool box for anything I could put on the ends. And, voila! In a matter of minutes I had created the Old Gal’s Gobble Getter.
Mark your calendars. Starting today, I am going to use my new invention just as demonstrated on the video for the next 8 weeks. Then we will compare the results with this photo of my waddle that my good friend took just last week:
Geez. Let’s hope I can correct this before Thanksgiving, because I’m looking too much like the turkeys in the first picture to feel safe leaving the house in November! Wish me luck!
PS – Tomorrow I will do another post to get back on track with my goal setting. I had to do something a little humorous today, because Daughter #2 thought my blog was too serious, although I am serious about this commitment.
