Losing inches working on my Blackberry

Picture 3

I’m in precarious position. Being that I sell custom suits and do public speaking on image, I need to look my best at all times. It’s not rocket science: The better your body looks, the better your clothes look on it. So I need my body to look fit and in shape.

BUT I’m also very busy, and my schedule is hectic and unpredictable. Finding time to work out is difficult for me. So I need alternatives to accomplish my primary objective, which is to look good in my clothes. I think I may have found it.

While driving, I came across a sign that said “Lipo-Laser 704-248-4898." Now, I’m naturally curious, so I called the number, mostly because I just wanted to know what it was about. After getting some basic information, I set up an appointment to find out more. I met with the manager, Tara D’Apolito, and she explained the concept. I thought, this is something my readers can benefit from, so I texted Kim, and we were good to go.

It’s a pretty neat. It’s a 12-session process, (preferably 3 sessions/week). Each session lasts about an hour. You just lie down, and they lay these square devices on the targeted areas. A laser then penetrates the fat cells and shrinks them. You don’t feel a thing. They move the little blocks every 10 minutes. Once that part is done, the fun really starts. They put you on what I call the “Shimmy Machine.” This thing is cool! It has individual panels you stand on. Then they start to move up and down individually. It vibrates you like crazy at various speeds for 10 minutes. It’s the funniest feeling. When you’re done, your legs feel weird for about 30 seconds. And you walk out of the office and go right back to work, or wherever you need to go.

Now, I’m in fairly decent shape. I have definition in my abs, but I also have this annoying little “fat belt” at my lower abdomen that drives me crazy. That’s the area I’m targeting. I have had 2 sessions so far, and I’ve lost about 1 ½” of fat. Pretty good considering I read Ballantyne Magazine during one session, and returned e-mails and texts and read Men’s Health during the second. I got work done, lost fat, and got a nice break from the mayhem that is my day. All of this is an hour, and I didn’t sweat once.

Obviously, there is no substitute for exercise and good nutrition. But this may be just the trick if you are getting ready for a wedding or have an event and you need to fit into that dress or tux you haven’t worn since last year.

I will keep you posted each week on my progress, over my next 10 sessions. If you want to know more check out
