The Zip It Up Challenge

Do you have a favorite pair of jeans you want to get into?  I do.  I have several.  A dress that you want to get into?  I do.  I had a wedding that I needed to go dress shopping for when I was invited to receive a complimentary Strawberry Laser Treatment.  So I thought, why not?
First of all let me start by saying, all opinions stated are my own based on my personal experience.  I have been working on me this year.  The journey is a life long journey.  But who am I kidding, I want to see results.  Sometimes all we need is a little boost to get us over the hump.  March and April have been my hump.  I had been doing so good for the first two months and then it seemed like nothing was happening.  I got discouraged.  And then, this wedding.  I did not want to look pregnant next to my beautiful friends who actually were pregnant.  I was very excited to see what results I would get from trying this type of treatment for weight loss.

How does the Strawberry Laser Treatment work?  These treatment lets you target an area.  It is recommended that you have at least 8 treatments to get full results.  This treatment is a 3 stage process that does involve exercise and a sensible diet. 
What is the process?  You set an appointment.  Allow at least one hour for your appointment and also, it is recommended that you exercise afterwards for maximum results.  You will need to fill out an initial consultation and complete necessary forms.  This treatment is not for everyone, this is why these forms are important.  It helps understand your medical history.  Once you have been cleared, you will be weighed, measured, and the treatment area is photographed.  You will get on the bed and the paddles will be placed in your target area.  After the treatment starts, you will be re-measured.

My Experience-This is my personal experience and my personal results that I am sharing with you.  I am not looking for a magic pill and I only participated in one treatment.  I was told this type of treatment will help tighten the skin. I have not reached my goal weight or size.  I was very skeptical.  I chose to do my treatment at the end of day.  I did not skip any meals.  I emptied my bladder before starting this treatment as suggested by Deneish.  I was weighed and measured.  This treatment is non-invasive.  I was not cut open.  It did not hurt at all.  Heck I could have taken a nap.  After having a C-section and 2 kids I have a pooch so I targeted that.  The paddles were fitted and the cluster probes were places, then I started to feel little warmth.  Deneish explained that the warmth is the fat cells being emptied out into the body.  Afterwards, I stood on a Vibration Fitness Machine for 10 minutes.  I weighed in and was re-measured.  Results do vary and depend on your body type and metabolism.

My results-     3.2 lbs lost
                       2.1 inches lost

Results vary from 1 to 6 inches each session.  Deneish shared this picture of a client with a smaller circumference than me who only lost 1.5 inches.  Look at the middle section of her stomach.

Remember it is recommended that you continue with your treatments for better results.  I was saw results in the numbers, the scale does not lie and the measuring tape did not either.  I was able to go dress shopping for the wedding and I did not get not one comment asking me when I was due at the wedding.
