View Full Version : Does CRT help the "mom pouch"?
06-14-2006, 01:22 AM
I have a 3 year old and I have really loose skin. I have just ordered the basic workout and I go to the gym almost everyday. I plan on losing a lot of weight (as in 60 or so pounds) and I already have that saggy skin thing going on. I had thought about trying thermage or thermacoolon my stomach but that would cost between $1,000 and $4,000. I know that the crt program would be waayyy cheaper but I want to know if anyone has had real results with their saggy tummy. TIA!

The CRT brushing and alfalfa are both great. Have you tried organs in place/half frogs:
Also, check out this previous thread:

yes, I've looked at them (half frogs and organs in place) online but find it a little hard to do without an instructional video, but I am trying. I am mostly referring to the loose saggy skin. I did read the post with the link you provided me and it was helpful. thanx.

I just "stumbled" upon your thread, and if it's not too late, I wanted to encourage you to KEEP BRUSHING!!! :D IT REALLY DOES WORK!!!
I've had four kids, and the last one weighed 10 lb. 12 oz.! [:0] Needless to say, my tummy will never be the same. Ha! But they were sure worth it.
I had a terrible "postpartem apron" hanging down in front (rather depressing), but after T-Tapping and Brushing, I could hardly tell it had been so saggy! I found that you must keep it up though... like any other form of exercise. The skin can re-sag, just like muscles!
CRT Brushing has given me incredible results! :D
When I consistently brush... my tummy, thighs, and other trouble spots just smoothe right out and tighten up! IT IS MIRACULOUS!!!

LeahBug, slowly but steadily mine is going down. I'm brushing and doing the Total Workout, soaking in sea salt baths with grapefruit oil, and doing organs-in-place and half-frogs. I am miserable at following written instructions, but the DVD that comes in the back of the Fit and Fabulous book has OIP and Half Frogs on it.
I don't know if you have any of the workouts yet. If not, I'd tell you to buy the book first from Amazon (it's only $18 there), which will give you OIP and HF on the DVD, then send in the coupon in the back and when you're ready to order another workout you get 30% off, which will pay for the cost of the book.

I recommend just getting basic workout and CRT kit...forget the book. The included DVD for the OIP/half-frogs and hoe downs is very good. I started out by just doing those exercises while I waited for the real workout DVD to come in. I found it impossible and frustrating to do the exercises via written form in the book.

The value in the book, IMO, is the 30% discount it gives you, and later on once you know the exercises you can improve your form by reading it in detail. But I'd never be able to learn from the book alone. I know some can and have, but I'm too visual a learner.
