Waistband Stretcher


For the quitter in all of you

Seriously, yall. Don't do it. It's not worth it. Save yourselves! Keep this item as far away from your homes as you possibly can. Instead, invest in a decent pair of shoes and take a long walk. Repeat.

As someone said it more eloquently than I ever could: "The weight loss battle is simple. Eat less. Move more."
