Very Hopeful at this point- Murphy, NC

I had the firs two sessions today. The worst so far was the begining of the suction. Once it was started though I was able to play on my Ipad and not even think about what was going on. I did 2 one hour sessions and the time went by very quickly for me. Only thing that hurt was my rear end from sitting for so long. I did get up and walk in between times.The only thing that scared me was when the machine started massaging. I jumped so high! So far in the first few hours not having any pain or discomfort. I came home ate lunch and am going to head out to a dog training session for my dog in a few moments. Scared of the nerve pain that so many have talked about.
Will keep you posted. I paid 3100 for 8 areas. I know the biggest area is counted as 2.

Day 2: Slept well last night but was a little sore this morning. Went to my personal trainer and did full work out with 200 ball crunches in addition to an hour workout. The only thing that bothered me was the step ups. Bringing my knee up caused slight discomfort. Really Hopeful that I am going to do well over the weekend. I drink lots of water and am very active. Was able to wear my jeans last night with no problem and intend to try that again today. Keeping my fingers crossed and saying my prayers. Next two sessions are on the 14th! Happy Valentines Day to me! Will keep you updated as I go along.

Oh Yes I am 57 years old. Have always been active and work out twice a week with a personal trainer. I went from 164 to 144 just giving up processed wheat products but still have the ring around the belly. So decided this non-surgical treatment was the way I wanted to try to go to loose that ring around the belly.

Day 4: I have no discomfort and no change in lifestyle. I have continued to wear my normal clothes and do my normal activity. I have felt some occasional tingling but mostly at night. During the day not much of anything. I have on the Body Mass Index scale that I have gone down in weight by 2 pounds and my BMI is down a few points My fat to lean ratio has not changed much since I would guess I have not elimintated much fat yet. My belly where I had this done does seem to have gone down some and become flatter. Glad that I am doing well so far.

Well for Valentine's Day at my second 2...

Well for Valentine's Day at my second 2 Coolsculpting places done. This time the Love Handles! This was a little more uncomfortable because I have such little space between my rib cage and my hip bone. Thus I expect a little bruising because of this. My two that I did originally have done fine. I had little or no discomfort at all with it just a bit of itching last weekend. Hopefully this will go smooth and next Thursday I do the lower abdomen. Will keep you posted. Really looking forward to the results!

Hi there, welcome and thanks for sharing your journey with us.

You're brave having all of these sessions, I'm too scared of pain! LOL. Sounds like things are going well for you though and you're not experiencing too much pain.

Please do keep us updated with your progress!

Well so far not much discomfort. I can tell on the first 2 that I am getting smaller. Other people tell me that I am too so that is a great thing. Tomorrow I go for the big one on my lower abdomen so I am hopeful that it goes as well as the rest. For a while after the second 2 I felt like it was a ring of Jello. But so far a bit of tingling and itching is all that I have felt as the numbness wears off.

Will keep you posted after the big one. As for now this seems well worth it!
No down time and I am getting smaller!

Well I had the big lower ab done last Thursday and I am really beginning to like how this is turning out. I had a bit more discomfort from that because it was a bigger area. Felt like all the fat from my pubic bone to my belly button was sucked into the machine and it was. I have a picture of what that looked like before she massaged that back in that I will post soon.
I experienced a little more tingling this time but mostly just the itch which when that starts a hot bath with epsom salts seems to relieve for whatever reason. Going for my last 2 tomorrow morning! Now I get to settle in and wait for the results!

Well I have done 8 points now and the big one was...

Well I have done 8 points now and the big one was the one that has caused me the most itching and a bit of discomfort. Wondering if this is because of scar tissue in that area. The rest of them have gone on with just minor tingling and itching. I am beginning to see results on the first areas so that makes me happy. I am going to go on and do 2 more tomorrow. This will be the last for me but I wanted to get the upper part of the back not just the lower so decided to do that. Really pleased so far!
Looking forward to seeing your before/after photos! Has the scale went down anymore yet? Thanks for posting your experience!

I have just really not had much discomfort other than itching. I know the girl doing mine says it has to be massaged back in really well to get the results. When I get to about 4 days after I just take a hot bath with Epsom Salts and it seems to relieve most of the itching. I have done 10 points and that is it. The only one that has been uncomfortable is the upper back fat because it had not much fat and it sat on my rib cage. I am looking forward to my follow up visit in May to get my before and after pictures.

Good luck to all you Coolscuplting adventurers! I am happy so far!

Thanks for the updates! Wow, you've had a lot of areas done, It sounds like you're a pro at it by now! ;-) Looking forward to seeing your before/afters!

I am really begining to trim down. On a day by day basis I can see my stomach getting flatter and my love handles going away! This is truly awesome. Cannot wait to see what my before and afters look like in May. I am truly pleased with this. I really had little or No discomfort for the any of the 10 CoolSculpting sessions I had.
