I had the golden ticket

A couple of weeks ago I won the cellulite reshaping package from BE Lifestyle MedSpa during the Momz Share* Silver Spring Soiree raffle.

I was so happy I totally lost my shit.

At first, I couldn’t believe I won.

I just stood there staring at the ticket. I think I may have even asked for a repeat of the numbers. The BFF probably repeated about three times, “Dude, you won,” before I could except that I, the girl who never wins anything, the one with the worst luck in the world, had actually won something that she really, really wanted.

I have obsessed about the cellulite on my thighs for years. I've tried all sorts of crazy antics to get rid of the crap (you can read about it here) but never in a million years did I think that I would be getting any kind of real cosmetic procedure.

Until now...

So, I went in for my consultation and last week. I was a little nervous, you know the whole taking off your clothes and pointing out your fatty areas to strangers thing, but everyone was super nice and made me feel very comfortable. Dr. Cohen was the plastic surgeon who saw me and he thinks I'm a perfect candidate for the Accent cellulite body reshaping treatments and that I should see great results! I then spoke with Marian who explained the entire procedure in detail and let me ask 101 questions.

I'm totally in.

I set up my first appointment for next week. I'm so excited to get started. I still can't believe that it's actually going to happen.

I'm also having a VISIA complexion skin analysis of my face done. It'll provide an assesment of my skin features, like wrinkles and sun damage that can't be seen with the naked eye. This way I'm sure that my skin-care treatment is tailored especially for my needs. Pretty cool.

So, maybe the next time you see me I'll be showin' some thigh.**
