I am one month from having my plication surgery. I am currently working on my core during my physical therapy to gain strength back from inactivity. At 2 months post surgery I will work on isolating and doing ab exercises, crunches, etc. hopefully things will go well!

Waist training is a gradual process of waist reduction using a latex waist cincher or corset ,Also known as waist cinching this practice came to prominence during Victorian times.

This is an interesting topic because I noticed women in Europe and Asia do wear tummy control girdles after having babies. In fact, you are given a tube like elastic fabric that can be doubled and even tripled to add extra pressure as you go through recovery. At first you wear it almost like a tube dress and provides mild compression. After a while you double it and it comes from under breasts to hips. Then you triple it by folding once more when your body can handle it and it's only in the mid section at this point. I have not seen this practice in the US at all. Please understand it is not a corset. It starts as mild support. Everyone uses some sort of support even the skinny ladies. How come we don't?

The reason I don't use support or compression garments around my abdomen is because where I'm at it's just too darn hot most of the year.

Since I've lost the weight though I've gotten considerably colder in air conditioned rooms. May be a consideration now that I'm not an excessive sweating machine like I used to be ;) .

Blessings,

Kathleen

I have read that corset training can cause your organs to move to the wrong places...kind of scary to me

I know, it's an odd concept but you have to wear compression garments when you have plastic surgery. I'm serious. So there is something to this. It's like lycra support not a corset. It's like wearing lycra pants to a workout, no organs move or get hurt.

I actually used to corset train. Mostly because I'm a goth, so it comes with the territory. Organ displacement has only happened in extreme cases. The typical cinch is up to 4 inches in reduction.

The main problem that I see with women trying it today is they keep it on for far too long. I wouldn't recommend training for more than 4 hours a day to start, otherwise atrophy of the abdominal muscles starts to set in and can make corset removal painful. I like the rubber ones that are out.

As far as with a plication, it should not be different than without it. The stomach compacts while wearing a corset anyways. Expect shortness of breath and and reflux though. The lungs also become constricted along with the upper stomach. These in themselves can easily become health hazards, so just be careful and aware.

Essentially what's really being trained is the fat. There's no loss of inches on its own. It just slowly redistributes the fat deposits. I grew up being shoved into girdles since elementary school. Wore them everyday until high school. Found myself with a nice hourglass figure after the rest of my baby fat went away. Eventually got the genetic version of my belly after 10 years of up and downs. Moral of the story is, wearing compression garments everyday will have the same general effect but may be healthier in the long run.

I'd say pair the 2 if you'd like. It's unlikely that you'll permanently harm yourself. You should make sure you're completely healed first though unless it's specifically a medical cincher.

If you look at Kim Kardashian and think "man that's perfection", consider waist training. Her curves aren't natural but they are wonderful thanks to corsets. At least I think so.

Yeah it's 2014, and we're still shoving our puppies into pushup bras, strings into our butt cracks, plucking, waxing, shaving, and have an unrealistic body images thanks to popular culture.

Not sure what your point is.

Absolutely! The best ones will be called tight-lacing corsets. The lowest I've seen them is $70. I'm not sure how much the rubber ones are. The boning (what keeps the corset form) should at least be steel spiral with a steel "busk" at the front or back for strength. If you get one with an opening in the front and lacing at the back, those are the easiest to get in and out of.

Do you have any weight loss surgeries?

      This morning I had an abdominal ultra sound because apparently my cholesterol keeps rising.
      I don’t get it. My cholesterol was always fine & now when I eat less of everything & have lost weight it starts to go up.

      My intake of fats & oils has decreased (not that I was a big fried food person before anyway) & not just because I eat way less. Always cut the fat of meats, still don’t eat bacon, use spray olive oil instead of regular oil. Even the tub of butter in my fridge has been there since before May. Lol.
      I just don’t get it? Is it because I don’t eat anywhere near the amount of vegetables I ate before? It surely can’t be because I eat a piece of cheese every day which I didn’t before? Are all my hormones screwed up? 
      Sigh!

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.
