Age is a funny thing. While our bodies grow older, our minds sometimes get stuck at a certain number or a certain place. Then we wake up and realize that we’re, well, old. And sometimes, that can be a challenge to deal with.
Committed to Fitness
When I was a kid, I had the good fortune of growing up in a very active family. We hiked, camped, and swam through every summer. That was a time before every house had a computer—or even a TV!—so we kids were outside running around a lot. I have fond memories of neighborhood games of kickball in the streets, and there was always some kind of physical activity to be found.
That dedication to staying active continued into my adult years. In school, I ran and swam, and then once I started my career, I continued running and incorporated going to the gym. I ended up marrying a man who was equally committed to fitness, and we and our children hiked, biked, and ran races together as a family.
Thankfully, because of a combination of my love of exercise and good genes, I’ve always been in great shape. But getting older doesn’t discriminate.
Signs of Aging
It was in my early 50s that I started to notice. Little lines were showing up on my face, around my mouth and eyes. Honestly, I was okay with those. And I was fine with my graying hair. But what really got me was the extra flab under my chin. I’d never had a double chin, but here it was, in all its glory.
But what can you do to get rid of a double chin? I mean, I was already fit, and there are no targeted exercises to deal with that area. I was at a loss, and I didn’t know what to do. It was embarrassing to me that such a glaring sign of my age was right there for everyone to see.
A New Solution
A friend had heard about CoolSculpting, and I was curious. Could this work to get rid of the fat under my chin? I started doing some research online and found that, yes, CoolSculpting has recently been approved to target double chins. After seeing the before-and-after photos, I knew I needed to schedule a consultation.
Bodify was my first choice, mostly because all they do is eliminate unwanted fat by freezing it. The technician was wonderful and answered all of my questions. And she told me that I would likely see results in just one or two treatments. I was sold.
The procedure was painless and quick. I took the afternoon off from work, figuring I’d be too uncomfortable afterward, but I was just fine. It was a very simple experience.
It’s been six months since my second treatment, and everyone has noticed the difference in how I look. My husband even says I look 10 years younger. I feel infinitely more confident now that my double chin is gone and my face looks as fit as the rest of my body.
I never really would have considered something like this as a fit woman, but when it comes to something I just couldn’t resolve on my own, I’m so glad I did. This was one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long while.
