I was willing to try anything when a friend suggested I look into cool sculpting in Austin. The problem that lead me to seek out this procedure was a serious heart attack that hit me one morning like a clap of thunder. The next thing I know I’m waking up in the hospital to a doctor saying I have out of control diabetes and it caused a myocardial infarction. I am lucky to be alive let me tell you. To make a long story short, I needed to start dropping weight and I needed to do it fast.

Losing weight, as anyone knows, is a difficult endeavor. Getting my blood sugars and diet under control proved far easier than getting rid of the stomach fat. Try as I might, I just couldn’t drop that last twenty pounds. And I needed to. That’s why my friend suggested cool sculpting. He said he tried it when his own stomach fat proved to persistent and that it really helped make a dent in it. What did I have to lose? Even if I couldn’t get rid of it, I thought at least some progress might provide the motivation for further lost pounds in the future.

So I found a clinic and went in for an appointment. Frankly, I thought the procedure sounded fairly ridiculous. The freeze your fat cells for some such thing and then months later the weight drops off. I sort of rolled my eyes and gave it a shot anyway. Then a few months later something amazing happened: I saw a definite improvement when I looked in the mirror. My bathroom scale confirmed what my eyes were telling me. I lost a significant amount of weight from this procedure. Now I’m losing even more with my changed diet. It’s going to be a great day when I hit my target weight.
