Forget surgery. Getting rid of unwanted fat can be as easy as giving it the cold shoulder. Well, sort of. Sound too good to be true? Don’t just take it from us. Take it from celebrity and actress and former Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Molly Sims, who has signed on as the new spokesperson for CoolSculpting.
ZELTIQ Aesthetics, Inc., developers of CoolSculpting, announced in a recent press release that Molly Sims will serve as their new brand ambassador. Best known for her work on the long-running NBC television series Las Vegas, Sims became a mother of two when she gave birth to her second child earlier this year. The author of New York Times bestseller “The Everyday Supermodel,” has been very candid about the struggles she faced with losing baby weight prior to discovering the non-invasive CoolSculpting treatment in 2012.
“I have always worked hard to be healthy and stay fit, but my body changed after having a baby and there were areas that would not respond to diet and exercise no matter how hard I tried,” revealed Sims. “I believe women want to look and feel their best in every situation, and I encourage doing something that will help you improve your self-confidence.” After having the CoolSculpting procedure on her abdomen, Molly Sims saw noticeable results within a few weeks.
Developed by Harvard scientists, this groundbreaking treatment is based on the proven scientific principle that fat cells die when exposed to extreme cold. Since the treated cells are eliminated from the body by the procedure, patients can expect dramatic and long-lasting results. Mark Foley, President and CEO of ZELTIQ says, “Molly is a perfect example of a very busy mom who sought a little extra help to slim down after having a child. We are thrilled that she has the ability to reach other women in the same situation who may also benefit from CoolSculpting.”
We caught up with Molly Sims, who shared her insights on the new partnership CoolSculpting, the details on how she was able to get her body back after baby, and her new upcoming television role:
Cherie Wimberly: Being known as physically fit and lean, and working as a model with Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret, did you ever think before having kids that it would be difficult to lose post-pregnancy baby weight?
Molly Sims: I really never thought it would be that hard but it is seriously difficult! That’s why I tried harder to maintain a healthier lifestyle during my second pregnancy. I had to workout hard and really watch my diet. After the baby, I’ve been so determined to lose that weight!
CW: Why did you decide to try CoolSculpting?
MS: I decided to try CoolSculpting after my first pregnancy because there was a little bit of pooch that I just couldn’t lose even with diet and exercise. CoolSculpting is FDA cleared, non-invasive, and there’s no downtime, which was perfect for me as a busy, working mom.
CW: How did your family feel about the decision?
MS: I definitely talked to my mom about it before I made the decision and she was supportive. She always wants me to feel good…inside and out!
CW: What were some of the personal experiences/methods that were most helpful in recreating your post-baby body?
MS: After having my babies, I wore a girdle or some type of waist trainer at all times. I love the Belly Bandit. Also, it’s important to get your body moving whether it’s hiking, pilates, or even taking long walks with the stroller. It also helped me to buy a goal outfit that I really wanted to wear. For me, it was a red lace dress. It really helped motivate me to shed those pounds!
CW: Which would you say is more challenging – keeping up with your career or being a mom of two?
MS: Being a mom of two is definitely more challenging. It requires some balance and effort to make sure you are giving them equal love and support! I’ve never felt guilt like this until I had children. They are my everything, my magic.
CW: Where can fans expect to see Molly Sims in the near future? Any television plans?
MS: Yes! I just signed on to be a contributing co-host on ABC’s The View. I am very excited!
