Review: Rosemary Conley’s Low Fat Hip and Thigh Diet

Elastigirl : Does my butt look big in this superhero suit?

Well, we did it! Elastigirl and I lost 1lb 12oz on the Hip and Thigh Diet. I’m sure Rosemary Conley would be pleased. Or if not, at least I am. It’s like the 80s all over again 🙂

Beginning weight: 211 lbs

A Diet for Elastigirl, the Incredibles’ Superhero Mom

This week’s diet, in the run up to Thanksgiving, is for that most overstretched superhero mom of all, Elastigirl from The Incredibles.

Not only does she have a busy life with her three superhero kids, but she is the only grown up voice of reason left, and then still has to suit up and save the day.

It’s a very appropriate character for the rest of us superhero moms in a holiday week 🙂

And what a suit!
