My weight loss journey started about 2 years ago, when I had a CoolSculpting® treatment on my abdomen, and I couldn’t believe my results! My clothes started to fit better, and I felt more confident. Following the treatment, I would exercise a bit here and there, but I got really serious about diet and exercise about 1 year ago. I had some serious motivation… I was getting married!
Since then, I have been working out 6-7 days per week and have been following a specific portion control diet, and it’s working! I’ve lost about 50 pounds in total, and I’m feeling stronger and healthier than ever before. That being said, after having two beautiful babies my abdomen wasn’t responding to the diet and exercise in the same way the rest of my body was. I was still carrying some extra fat around my stomach.
That’s why, when I was presented with the opportunity to undergo a series of EMSculpt® treatments, I was so excited! Not only does this treatment build muscle, but it causes fat atrophy as well, meaning that the fat is being destroyed, and your body eliminates the dead fat cells!
What I loved about EmSculpt is how quick it is; 4 treatments over 2 weeks, and the treatments are only 30 minutes long. In that 30 minutes, my abs had done 20,000 contractions! There is no muscle fatigue or soreness with this treatment. There are intervals between contractions where the lactic acid is released so even the next day there is no soreness. I also love that while you’re building lean muscle but you are losing the fat as well!
I am so pleased with the results from my treatment. I am 4 weeks out from my final EMSculpt treatment for my abdomen and I am so excited by the results that I can see so far. I have already noticed more definition in my abs, and my stomach has flattened, and is becoming firmer. I’ve also noticed that my core is way stronger in my workouts as well.
I can’t wait to see my full results! This can take about 6 weeks post treatment once the fat has gone buh-bye!
When I look back at where I found myself two years ago, I’m so thankful for this journey. The opportunity to combine my diet and exercise routine with treatments like CoolSculpting and EMSculpt has enabled me to achieve goals I never could have reached otherwise.
