3/21/09 Weight Loss 'Tools'

*Sorry, no pics

Our great-grandmothers, grandmothers, and mothers were on to something...they were using 'tools' for weight loss long before the era of 10,000 diets became popular. Too bad their 'tools' weren't as successful as the LB!

GOT CANKLES?
Newspaper clipping from 1924. I'll bet these were comfortable, and gee 'there's nothing to rub in or massage'. I wonder if blue feet were popular then? *Clear plastic band over the ankle

A DAY AT THE SPA SOUND GOOD?
This photo from the 1960s shows French women sitting in "slim-down coveralls" while being served low-calorie meals.

The attached text reads: "10 May 1961, Paris, France --- Weighting Game. Paris: Shedding pounds while getting new hairdos, Parisian girls relax in slim-down coveralls underneath the hair driers at a local beauty parlor. In addition to the coveralls, customers get low-calorie meals to help with their slenderizing. Idea was originated by Parisian hairdressers Roger Pasquier".

NEED TO GET RID OF FAT AND CELLULITE?
This just looks painful! The device was made by Battle Creek Equipment in Michigan, US. You sit front, back or side and the rollers 'break down' fat. *spinning rollers

LIKE YOUR MARTINI SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED?
Now THIS looks like a fun 'banding' experience! I hope my support group meetings are this fun! *Band machine that jiggles your fat

WANT A 15" WAIST?
Frankly Rhett, I don't give a d#*n! ...Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) being laced into her corset by her Mammy (Hattie McDaniel) in Gone with the Wind, 1939.
