BRABIC Shaper Tops

Compression garments are so helpful, but finding good ones can be an interesting challenge. This compression vest is wonderful. For those of us larger busted ladies, you’ll still need to wear a bra with it. I’d recommend one without an underwire.

I personally am looking for something that is offering a longer sleeve. In the meantime, this has been helpful and I think that it is a good option for those that just need compression for the upper part of the arm.

LuxFit Foam Roller

I love this roller. The 18 inches is a perfect length. The foam is the right density. This is a great tool for anyone in chronic pain.

If you are not familiar with foam rollers, there are a bunch of helpful videos on you tube that can show you how to use them. You can also ask a trainer at your gym to show you how to use them. They are a great way to address muscle tension and pain.

I won’t lie, there is a learning curve to these. When I first started using them I felt like I was just flopping around on the floor, but with practice I was able to figure out what was helpful for me. The biggest benefit to a foam roller is that they are really low risk. It is unlikely that you will have any harm come from trying one of these out.

Tanita

Putting your weight in context is super important. I have been going to a nonsurgical weight loss clinic for over a year now and am having great success. One of the tools that they use there is the Tanita scale. This scale looks at where your weight is coming from and accurately calculates your BMI. This is super helpful because you can tell where the weight changes are coming from. There were months that I weighed in and my weight had gone up, but it was because I had increased muscle mass. That was good weight gain and knowing that made a big difference in my outlook on how I was progressing with my goals. You can now get these scales for your home which I think is super cool. If you are going to have a scale, this is the kind to have.

These socks are amazing. They are wool compression socks. Most compression socks are thin and leave my feet feeling cold. These are very warm and feel wonderful. They have some really nice prints as well. High quality. The socks that I own I’ve had for about a year now and they are still going strong. They are more expensive then other compression socks, but I think they are worth every penny!
