Some women make losing weight after pregnancy look effortless, especially in Hollywood. While post-baby weight loss might be easy for some people, many others are quick to admit that getting rid of those extra pounds is no picnic. Molly Sims, Sports Illustrated model and television actress, recently revealed her personal struggle with pregnancy weight gain; and exactly how she finally lost the extra pounds after her baby’s arrival.
Amid a myriad of models and actresses telling the media all they needed was diet and exercise after pregnancy, Sim’s confession is refreshingly honest. The 42 year-old, mom of two, gained 85 pounds during her first pregnancy, and then found losing the weight afterwards was not easy. Sim’s shared the details of her struggles with weight in her 2015 memoir, The Everyday Supermodel. Although watching what she ate and working out regularly did help her to lose most of those extra pounds, there was always an extra bit of lingering fat that just wouldn’t budge.
Sim, a busy mom who juggles raising her children with a thriving career (it was recently announced Sim’s will be joining talk show the View), asked her doctor what could help with the stubborn fat along her waistline. That was the pivotal moment she discovered CoolSculpting, the innovative way to use freezing temperatures to permanently melt away fat cells.
Sims on CoolSculpting
After almost giving up on toning the remaining fat after her first baby, Sims had two CoolSculpting treatments at the urge of her cosmetic surgeon. To Simi’s surprise, she began to see results after only a month. Three months later, she was wearing her pre-baby clothes again.
Since the life changing procedure, Sims has been extremely open about how CoolSculpting worked for her. She goes into detail in her autobiography, and candidly speaks about the procedure in interviews. Six months ago, Sims gave birth to her second daughter, and has plans to return for a CoolSculpting treatment after she drops a few more pounds on her own.
Hearing Sims speak openly about her satisfaction with CoolSculpting, Zeltiq, the company behind CoolSculpting, reached out to her in an effort to join forces. Hence, a perfect partnership was born. Sims loves to share her CoolSculpting story, and now she can get her message out to even more new mothers.
A Solution for Busy Moms
You certainly don’t need to be a supermodel to benefit from CoolSculpting. In fact, the treatment is perfectly suited to today’s busy mom. Unlike more invasive Mommy Makeover procedures, which combine several invasive surgeries, from liposuction to the tummy tuck, CoolSculpting requires no surgery. Even better, CoolSculpting requires no downtime, and can be performed in just an hour.
CoolSculpting can be used on almost any area of the body. Sims had her tummy treated, but the procedure also works wonders on the flanks (love handles), thighs, upper arms, and back. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) just approved CoolSculpting for submental fat, or the dreaded double chin. A single, 60-minute treatment can work wonders, and depending on the severity of fatty tissue and the desired results, women may choose to have a second treatment for even more dramatic benefits.
Busy moms appreciate the significant results that CoolSculpting can provide, without any downtime. After a lunch time treatment, moms can hop right back into their regular routine. The CoolSculpting procedure can be performed while the kids are at school, with plenty of time to pick them up at the end of the day. There are no restrictions after treatment, meaning moms can drive and play with their kids like always.
No matter how long it has been since you have had a baby, if you are exhausted from fighting with stubborn post-pregnancy fat, CoolSculpting may be right for you.
