Looking great comes easy to some people but then there are others (and I fall into this category!) for whom, looking amazing is simply NOT simple.
Simple would mean I wake up and put my clothes on, look in the mirror and amazing shapeliness astounds me as I walk from the room, confident and full of 'joie de vivre', smiling at everyone I meet knowing I look truly wonderful.
Most mornings do not start this way...
Before Flexees, mornings involved a whole lot of avoiding mirrors, thinking about what I could wear that covered me a bit like a tent so none of the unsightly bulges could be seen by the 'ever full of high expectations' outside world - a world where celebrities popped out of the maternity suite looking younger than when they went in and the common woman looked on in amazement wondering what on earth she is doing wrong.
Patterns were all the rage in my wardrobe as hopefully the overwhelming pattern would take all attention away from me.
Early mornings (or anytime I could fit in a spare ten minutes) were spent attempting to exercise in front of my TV while the rest of the day was spend thinking of all the chocolate I wanted and could not have.
Then, one day, I realized there was an alternative route to looking great, one that could be implemented as soon as Amazon could deliver and then the story changed...
