I have been running since high school. I may not be very fast, but I LOVE to run more than most anything! I also love to do boot camp, yoga, all sorts of aerobic exercises, including jumping jacks and burpees. After having my daughter, I was surprised to learn to my body didn’t exactly bounce back the way I expected. I was only 33 years old, but my body felt foreign to me in some ways. I had difficulty losing the weight, I had stretch marks, and one very embarrassing problem—bladder leakage. I didn’t realize at the time how common it was. In fact, 65 million American women AND MEN are affected by this issue.
I used to avoid exercises that required jumping up and down, like burpees, for example, or jumping jacks. I remember refusing to do them when I was at boot camp one morning, because I knew what the result might be. Fortunately, I discovered that other women have the same issue and began using the Depend FIT-FLEX Underwear when I exercise. I don’t know what a sneeze or set of strenuous exercise might bring. Now, I can be confident and do the activities I love to do. Depend uses something called, “Confidence Core Technology,” which means it’s fast absorbing and I don’t even notice I’m wearing it because it’s super comfortable and discreet. I can wear what I want when I’m working out and not worry about whether or not the underwear show. They’re so lightweight and with the flex-fit, they fit well.
You can go to www.Depend.com and request a free sample of their product and try them out. I’ve ordered them online through Amazon, for myself, which saves me the embarrassment of buying them at the store. They come discretely to your doorstep, hassle-free! There’s a few different styles to choose from, to fit your needs, whatever they are. They move with your body and for me, I don’t notice them at all!
It is an unfortunate result of childbirth that bladder leakage is something I know something about. The fortunate thing is that I don’t let it stop me from confidently enjoying my favorite passions—running, playing sports, jumping rope, doing yoga, doing bootcamp and Crossfit. I can be me, without having to worry about the little embarrassing things!
