Firmer Butt and Thighs?? Is it to good to be true?

As you all know I'm cutting weight and in the past 7 weeks I've already lost 19.2lbs and am down 2 pants sizes (or is it one pants size when you go say from a size 16 to a 14?). I don't know. I've dished on my secrets and I swear that walking 2-9 miles everyday is what has contributed to my success thus far.

I'm sure you all have seen the commercials regarding the REEBOK EASYTONE shoes and if you are like me, found yourself staring at the women imagining that those thighs and buttocks were yours.

I've been wanting to purchase these shoes for a while now and have gone back and forth between the Sketchers Brand, Reebok's and Asic's. I have to be honest and say the the Reebok's look the most appealing to me. I also have to be honest in saying that I have had a difficult time finding them in an actual store. I have also heard some negative reviews about the bubbles on the bottom popping and how they cause pain in the your feet. The price tag to me also seems a bit steep, however they are priced the same as their competition. Being a single Mom with a mortgage in California, splurging on such luxuries have to be well thought out and planned.

So I decided to contact Reebok's PR department directly to see if I could become their Jerrod. You know, Jerrod of Subway! Duh!

I want to put these shoes to the test. I'd post my weekly measurements, weight loss and mileage walked. I'd post reviews on how the shoes felt while walking on different terrain through out my city. I'd also post a link at the top of my blog for you keep up on my weekly progress. I'll create a button for you to post on your blogs as well.

Wish me luck in hoping that Reebok responds to me email.

FINGERS CROSSED!!

If you buy them, let me know what you think of them. I really want a pair, I just want to know they are durable and work. =)

Good luck! I'd love to see a review on these types of shoes. My son is starting to train for cross country...so any advice from someone who tries these would benefit me as well...I'm sure they make mens shoes in the same way. Right? :o)

Lisa Anne said...

No response as of yet. I emailed PR and Promotions department. Grrrr. Then again I only did it this morning.

Cassie said...

Lisa Anne said...

Congrats on the weight loss. I bought the Reebok easytones a few months back and love them! I still don't look like the girls on the commercial though!:) I have had no problems with them. When you walk in them you feel bouncy.(in a good way)Once you wear them it is weird to walk in regular tennis shoes again. They also came out with a running shoe version of easytones. (if I had the money I would get those too) I hope the PR department comes through for you. Good Luck!
