If you've been here for a while, you know that I'm on a journey to get healthy. This isn't my first time on this journey. No, this is a road I've walked up and down a few times. Each time gets a little harder, so I'm doing to do everything that I can to make sure that this is the last time. I'm making lifestyle changes this time, so I'm optimistic that this time will be different from the last one. Now that I'm in my 30s with three kids, my body isn't cooperating with me as well as it used it.
The first time I lost weight was just after my oldest son was born. I found a diet plan that worked with my body, I was young, and I was very active. The weight came off, and my new smaller clothes fit great. Then I had two more kids 17 months apart and my weight went up and down over the next three years. I was older then, so the baby weight just didn't want to come off. Finally, I decided to get serious about it. I lost 80 pounds in two years. Unlike the last time, my new smaller clothes didn't fit so great. I had a mother's tummy, and my waist wasn't nearly as small as it could was before.
Unfortunately, I gained most of that weight back in the next two years. Now I'm on my way back down again. To be honest, I'm not sure how much weight I've lost, but I am down a size in my jeans and one to two sizes in my tops. My body tends to lose weight in zones, and my abdomen has either been skipped or hasn't started losing yet. My legs and arms are slimming down, but I still stubborn fat in my midsection.
What Is SculpSure?
I've decided that rather than wear baggy clothes to hide my tummy for the rest of my life, I'm going to talk consider SculpSure. It's the first FDA-cleared laser treatment for fat deposits of the flanks and abdomen. It isn't an all-over fat reduction method; it's for areas that don't respond to diet and exercise.
SculpSure is a non-invasive body contouring treatment. In 25 minutes, it can destroy up to 24 percent* of fat cells in an area without the need for surgery.

You won't see immediate results after the procedure, but your body will be evacuating the fat cells that were destroyed during the procedure. You'll start to see results in 6 to 12 weeks after your procedure.
