Several months ago, I’ve mentioned that I went for a Liposonix treatment with Dr Alice Michael. To rehash your memory, it’s a targeted fat reduction treatment designed for those who has that stubborn inch of fat to lose. It’s perfect for those who are already living a pretty healthy lifestyle but just want to drop a dress size. Read about how it works, as well as my treatment experience here.
Well, I’ve also mentioned once or twice that I’ve lost a bit of weight lately. I haven’t exactly changed my diet, but I have been quite busy the last few months with my shows, and as a result I didn’t have much time to think about food. My meals were mostly Paleo, but sometimes subjected to the event/function I was working at. I’ll admit to skipping a meal or two because I was too busy (not intentionally, I promise) and sometimes have no appetite for the same reason. But I definitely have not been starving myself.
Exercise wise, my shows are often quite physical because I’m always dancing and jumping around the stage. Apart from that I live a pretty sedentary lifestyle outside of work (though mostly because I needed to rest between gigs). From time to time when I’m motivated, I’d do some squats/planking while watching shows on my iPad (but that never last more than 5 minutes, haha).
Anyway, I’ve gone for a follow up review last month at Ageless Medispa. It was a quick one as they just needed to weigh and measure me. While I know that the result would be quite positive, it was still a shock to realise that I have lost almost 5kg in the last 3 months. This is overall weight loss, of course, because I’ve gone a full dress size smaller, even though my treatment area was just my abdomen.
If they had measured my hips they would probably be shocked to find out I’ve lost 2 inches there too. This is not a good thing however, because I now require cushion whenever I sit. Better do more squats to build the gluts!
So here’s a before/after photo:
I’ve tried to crop it as close as possible, but I guess you can tell that my abdomen is now almost flat. Also, I can no longer wear that pair of white shorts, they just fall right off! All that’s left for me to do is to keep up the exercise to tighten my muscles. I am more confident when wearing cropped tops and it’s been a joy doing an overhaul of my wardrobe. Best still, there were some dresses that no longer fit 3 months ago, and now I can wear them again. *Happy Dance*
I’d say that Liposonix definitely has been helpful for my weight loss journey. My upper abdomen especially. My body fat percentage has also gone down to 21% (pretty good for female non athletes) and my muscle mass is 35.9% (amazing considering I don’t exercise…much). Thank you Solta Medical and Dr Alice Michael for my transformation!
