Hide or Get Rid of My Muffin Top and Old Workout Wear?

Dear Fun and Fit – Kymberly and Alexandra: Why does my clingy, sexy workout wear that I bought ten years ago suddenly look like @@^%@ on me? Signed, Muffin-top, San Diego, CA

Alexandra: The answer lies in your signature. No one looks good in clingy wear with 10 years’ worth of snacks hanging out. You need to put on your baggy sweats and get on a treadmill. Hang your cute workout clothes on a hanger in front of the treadmill for inspiration. Start walking, add in some strength training, and stop eating those muffins.

Kymberly: To put it another way, cut back on the batter that fills those muffin cups!

  1. Take a photo of your clingy, sexy workout wear and post it on the refrigerator or above the stove.
  2. If you eat out often, wrap the photo around your credit card so you can stay focused when ordering a meal away from home.
  3. But frankly, what I would do is buy some new gear that simply hides my muffin top (not saying I have one, mind you!!). After 10 years with the same stuff, you deserve something new, looser, and more figure flattering.

A: Now that I think about it, I believe your muffin-tops are only half the problem. The other reason your clingy stuff looks like (edited for family reasons) “doo-doo” is that it is out of style. All of your stuff from ten years ago is so…2000ish. As in “Turn of the Century.”

Dear Snackers: What do you eat that makes your workout wear misunderstand you? Do you eat or wear muffin-tops?
