What would you have to lose to gain enough confidence to get naked? Not long ago I wrote a post about my fabulous friends who are loving their bodies and who put photographs of their bellies online for the world to see. While I envy them so much for their bravery and beauty, bearing my belly right now would be a genuinely traumatic experience for me.
Recently I learned about CoolSculpting, a non-surgical treatment for getting rid of stubborn fat cells. CoolSculpting is an FDA-approved and patented technology that freezes fat cells and destroys them. It is a non-invasive procedure for eliminating a muffin top, love handles or belly fat without needles or lasers. Doctors say it is a great for those who are active and watch their diets but can’t get rid of fat in some stubborn areas, most commonly around the mid-section.
I am all for losing excess fat and regaining confidence. As I approach my fortieth year (yikes) it is getting harder and harder to keep my weight down.
Each sculpting treatment area takes about an hour. Afterward the fat cells break down and are naturally eliminated from the body. Most patients begin to see results within about three weeks of the treatment with about a 20% reduction of fat in the treated area after one treatment.
It’s not inexpensive, but certainly less than a surgical procedure would cost. CoolSculpting runs about $800 per area, and most doctors will give a discount for patients who do more than one area. In my opinion, having more body confidence is worth the price. The same goes for other cosmetic procedures, from nose jobs to wrinkle fillers. If it makes you feel better about yourself, then I say go for it!
Guess what? You can enter to win a CoolSculpting treatment and a new iPad at LetsGetNaked.com. Their new campaign, Let’s Get Naked, is about feeling confident in your skin. The campaign kicked off with a bang at the South by Southwest interactive conference in Austin, Texas. Click here to see the Let’s Get Naked commercial or follow along on Twitter at #NakedAtSXSW.
Body confidence is all about how someone feels about their outside from their inside. Personally, I am not ready to bear my belly yet. I wish I had that confidence but the very thought of it scares the daylights out of me. What about you? What would you have to lose to gain enough confidence to get naked?
I have been compensated by CoolSculpting for my participation in this exciting campaign. I entered the Let’s Get Naked contest and hope to win a CoolSculpting treatment!
