Earlier in the year, I was sent a Silk’n Lipo device to trial in the comfort of my home.
I wrote my first post shortly after receiving the machine to show you how I was getting along. I promised to come back with news of the results of my 12-week test and I have to hang my head low and admit that I gave up.
I was doing really well but the last month or two of summer term got so busy that I was flying around everywhere trying to fit everything in and I just had to drop some balls – one of them, unfortunately, was my Silk’n Lipo trial.
Never mind, I said to myself. I’ll hang onto the machine and give it a go over the summer when I am home and relaxed and have five weeks off school. Great solution right?
But then 2018 turned out to be the BEST SUMMER EVER. Every day was a sunny day and my husband was barbecuing till his heart’s content. I dropped the buns with my burger, I piled on the salad but I chose to enjoy a glass of cold wine or a fresh beer from the fridge. The Silk’n Lipo trial was so far from my mind – even when my trousers started to feel tight.
We spent two weeks in Thanet, friends came to stay, we ate, we drank and we had so much fun.
Then, I went with the girls to Lake Garda to stay with Megan for 10 days. The land of delicious food – my favourite food on the entire planet. Of course, I tucked in and enjoyed myself and gained about 7lbs doing so. Boy, those mojitos were worth it though!
All of this is great but my Silk’n Lipo was gathering dust at home and I still couldn’t find the time to properly sit down and get on with the trial.
Come September with Back To School, the girls were studying for the 11+ which overtook our lives and once that was over, all of my studying materials turned up for my Open University Open Degree that I am about to start. Yeah, I haven’t yet told you about that one yet.
I have come to the conclusion that the Silk’n Lipo and I are not going to be able to meet anytime soon and with regret, I am returning the device.
There’s a whole part of me that still wants to give it a go and there’s a grand part of me that thinks with commitment, this would be a successful trial but I can’t keep this trial dragging on any longer and am calling it a day.
Thoughts on Silk’n Lipo
- I do think this is a great idea and, if you can commit, you would most likely get great results.
- I chose to work on my belly – it’s a large area to work on and realistically I think you would need longer than 12 weeks.
- I also think that to treat the stomach area you would need to combine the Silk’n Lipo with diet and exercise – two things that totally dropped off my radar this summer.
My Silk’n Lipo trial
I managed about 6 weeks using the machine approximately 3 times a week. I discovered that as it’s such a large area, I would place the belt on a different part of the stomach each time. For this reason, I imagine it would take 36 weeks (12+12+12) to see a reduction in my waistline. (I could be wrong though) I did measure after the 6 weeks and didn’t see any difference in measurements. I must add that I wasn’t dieting or doing extra exercise at the same time and maybe this reflected on my result.
