So, summer was fun. So fun, in fact, that I currently can’t squeeze into any of my professional attire. Here I am, staring Fall and its delicious ‘pumpkin spice everything’ in the face, and I’m already 15 pounds overweight. Haven’t even touched a PSL yet. I am doing my best to squeeze into my favorite skinny jeans, but all that’s awarded me is a bump on the noggin and a bruised ego. I have zero time to work-out and hello, Fall is upon us. Buying a new wardrobe is out of the question. I refuse to give in and accept this new me. Ugh, I wish there was a way to work some of this fat off easily.

Lightbulb! A friend of mine recently told me about something called Coolsculpting™. I had wondered why she looked so great all-of-a-sudden. “Tell me more!” She was not shy at all in telling me about the ease of the treatment and the results she experienced. I was hesitant at first, as it involved visiting a Plastic Surgeon’s office. I told her, no way. I am not having surgery. She said there are no needles or surgery involved and I’ll be back on my feet before I leave the office. Instantly, my ears perked up. No needles and no invasive procedures? And I lose fat? Yep. Sounds like what I’ve been looking for.

I did a little research on my own and discovered that not only is it a non-surgical procedure, but it is done in as little as 35 minutes, per treatment area, and I get to read a book or a magazine or watch TV while it happens. Really? That sounds like a spa day to me. I have two areas I really want to treat. My muffin top, which really, is more like the whole muffin these days, and my thighs. Apparently, I am able to do something called DualSculpting™. This is where they treat two areas simultaneously, in order to get me in and out in a timely manner. Man, they’ve thought of everything to make this very appealing.

I wanted to sign up right away, but I was hesitant because I have a wedding coming up in two weeks and I’m not sure if I really want to do something like this before a big event. I researched the procedure a little more and found that my friend was right. There is no down time and I would be able to return to my activities immediately. Partying at the wedding would still be on!

I remember my husband mentioning he wanted to slim down and I was wondering if this would work for him too? Apparently, this isn’t just for the ladies. It’s perfect for the dad bod, manly love handles and problem areas around the face (you know, that chubby selfie neck). In fact, guys are one of the largest growing populations of consumers getting Coolsculpting™ treatments. This sounds too good to be true. Alright, where do we sign?

Making an appointment was so easy. I just called Gayoso Plastic Surgery and made a consultation to meet with the amazing Coolsculpting™ staff (Gina is THE BOMB)! The initial consult is just to discuss my problem areas, the results I would like to see and answer any questions I may have. I’ll even get to see the machines and learn how they work. We came up with a date for the procedure and I am so excited to see my body change in the upcoming weeks. Fall, I no longer dread you. I’m ready and armed for all your yummy goodness.
