So I am currently on a weight loss journey to not only get myself ready for my wedding (which will be next year) but to just make myself happier and healthier. Sorry this is so lengthy.....
I've always been a bigger girl and losing weight/toning up is a struggle. Now I'm sure most of you are like ok but you must not eat right or not exercise so that's your problem. Well, sorry, but I eat very well, lost of fruit and veggies, chicken and fish, with little carbs. I work out between 4-6 times a week, doing an hour of cardio and an hour of weights. However, I still have some parts that make me uncomfortable.
Mainly it's my legs. The front of them is fine, it's the back side that's not so great. See, I've got this little extra roll under my booty that no matter how many squats, lunges or cardio I do, I can't get it to go away! While it's embarrassing, I've grown to live with it but would love for it to go away.
I've always thought about maybe doing Lipo but I know how invasive it can be and that you have a lot of down time before you can get back to your normal routine and that just will not fit into my schedule. So I went to Menard Plastic Surgery to see what other options I had. The consultation was free so I figured why not. They were very warm and welcoming and the staff was super friendly, which made me feel a lot better about everything!
They told me about this new procedure called SculpSure which was a non-invasive procedure that used lasers to heat and melt away the fat in just 25 minutes! I thought they were kidding....come on, 25 minutes to melt away the fat? Whats the catch? No catch just 25 minutes per area and it melts away the fat to help sculpt a better you! Best of all you can get right back to your everyday life, no down time! I thought this was too good to be true and told them I needed to think about it....aka go home and google it!
After doing some more research and asking a ton more questions I decided to go ahead and get it done! I went in and Ty hooked me up and assured me that there would be no pain, just some heat and cooling sensation and that she would be in the room the whole time to make sure it went smoothly. We started talking about our lives and just general chit chat and before you knew it, I was done with one leg, then the other was done! There was really NO pain, just some warming and then like a pins and needles feeling. The true test was that day, was leg day at the gym. So I started my first set of squats and NO PAIN! I was shocked I could be right back into my life so quickly but I was!
So now we just wait. Like with all plastic surgery or any time you do a procedure to your body, results are not immediate. You have to give yourself time to heal. So I will see my final results in 12 weeks but each week I will notice things getting tighter and smoother, and my double booty shrinking away! I can't wait to see the results! Just a couple days after I got it done I was out with my fiance and caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror and I swear I could already tell a difference and my confidence shot through the roof! Check back in 3 weeks for my 3 week check in!
