Default Not a distributor but have questions

I found someone located in the same town I am in that is an IT Works distributor and she said she is making over 10K/mo. I so want to do the business and get to that level. But am pretty discouraged at this point. I haven't signed up yet because I wanted to make sure the wraps work. I can't promote something that doesn't work. Well, I am going on my 3rd wrap (I wrapped myself the first time and the last 2x this lady has) and so far I am not really seeing any results at all. I took my measurements when I first started and hate to say it but after this third wrap I'm still not seeing any inch loss. Is there anyone that has tried the wraps that have had no inch loss whatsoever. I am drinking water like crazy and eating healthier. I will admit I am not exercising as I just don't have the time or energy when I get off of work in the evenings as when I get home from work I have 2-3 more hours of work to do at home to do. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank

Hi there
I haven't been doing the biz for too long but my sister is a double diamond in a different state. When I spoke with her she said that sometimes it takes up to four times to see results. I saw results the first time but the biz is moving away from measuring and going towards taking before and after pictures instead.
I am not an expert and used the products before I signed up as a Distributor but I hope that helped. Try the berry on the go greens, they are my favorite.

I am drinking over 64oz of water a day. Also I don't really eat a lot of salty foods. In fact when I cook I say when cause I don't very often I never really season my food w/ salt. I eat a fair amount of fruits as well as salads. Perhaps my body is going to require the 4 wraps if not more to see a difference.

I also leave mine on overnight. I have to look after 45 mins but then I wrap myself up again.
Good luck

Its possible. I remember our marketing director mention that when she was first introduced to the product she did not see results the first couple of applications. Congratulations on your determination to do a little more for yourself! Meanwhiile, here's a few tips you may find helpful. Some you may already know and practice...

Make sure the area you are applying is clean of body lotions or oils before applying the products.

Watch what items you add to your salads and watch what and how much dressing you use. (an old trick is to get your dressing on the side and lightly dip the tip of your fork before before picking up your salad). It gives you just enough taste to enjoy without adding a lot of fat or calorie intake depending on the dressing.)

Add or use some dark leafy lettuces like romain to your salad or spinach leaf.

Use the defining gel on days between wraps. Even once early and once late in the day won't hurt.

Avoid activity that produces excessive perspiration while and shortly after using the wrap.

If possible and not already doing so add a bit of protein to your breakfast and a high fiber mid-day snack. Avoid simple carbs. Watch those midday and late night snacks. Include a serving of one of our refreshing Greens products in a couple of those glasses of water.

Hope those are helpful to someone. Remember the best and longest lasting results are obtained by consistency and a synergistic use of products and activity.

You should be drinking half of you body weight, spread out over 3 days following your wrap. If you are drinking all of it in one day you might be bloated and need a little time to rid yourself of the excess water.

This comment makes no sense of drinking half your body weight spread out over 3 days. T If I were to spread it out over 3 days I'd only be drinking a little over 20oz of water per day. That doesn't make sense. I thought the recommended amount of water one should drink per day is half their body weight per day.


I did do another wrap last night and had the person that wrapped me take befores and afters. It looks like there is some change but not much. She gave me a couple sample of the Thermofit and the Fat Fighter pills do. I might just need an extra umph from something. She also did tell me she has a distributor in which it took her 10 wraps before she saw major results. I might be one of those difficult cases where it's going to take that many wraps to see a difference for me.

Thats actually a minimum. Some people dont drink any water at all. You can have more, which is even better.

Are you measuring yourself before and after? Do you take any meds that might affect it? I love the Thermofit.
