Get Back To Your Beach Body

As we prepared to head out for spring break vacation in March, I took an opportunity to go through my swimsuit drawer. As I sifted through the colorful pile of Lycra I began to make three piles – to donate, to keep, to try on.
To try on …
Ugh. I immediately regretted my decision. Who in their right mind volunteers to try on bathing suits at the very end of winter? This girl, apparently. As I shimmied and twisted my way into the first suit, I kept reminding myself to be confident. Love the body you have! And, then … I stood in front of the mirror.
While I pride myself on being an active, healthy person, as I stood there in front of my own reflection, it was pretty clear. I, Dr. Amy Brenner, am not exempt from the wrath of those dark and cold winter months. From my thighs to my armpits, things just didn’t look as organized as I had remembered them. And, I what was I thinking when I bought low cut bikini bottoms?!
Once my little fashion show had come to an end, I packed the most slenderizing one-piece in my suitcase for our vacation and set aside those bikinis for hmm, July? It’s going to take a lot of work, but I’m confident {and hopeful} that I will get there. In the meantime I’ll be practicing self-love like never before.
If you’ve had a recent run in with your swimsuit drawer as well, the most important thing is not to get sucked into the rabbit hole of self-loathing. I know it’s tough to see winter hanging off of our body, but don’t give into it. You are beautiful. You are capable.
Also, remember that you don’t have to do this all on your own! From wellness coaching to weight loss solutions, Dr. Amy Brenner & Associates is here to help you get back to your beach body! Here is just a sample of the services that we offer …

  • Wellness Coaching: When it comes to achieving healthy and happiness we know … one size does not fit all. Whether you’re seeking weight loss, or a more balanced lifestyle, our knowledgeable wellness coaches are here to help you develop a plan that will get you sustainable results. With just one consultation you could be on the way to a better you.
  • Coolsculpting: If you’re near your ideal body weight but just want to trim those stubborn areas, Coolsculpting may be right for you. This FDA-cleared treatment uses controlled cooling to reduce fat in the body. It’s completely non-surgical with no downtime so you can get back to your busy life immediately.
  • Smartlipo™: Smartlipo™ is a medical device that is used to perform laser-assisted liposuction. The laser literally melts the fat so that it can be easily removed with gentle suction. At the same time, the tissue around the area tightens, contributing to a smoother shape overall. The ideal candidate SmartLipo™ is within 30-50 lbs of target body weight.
  • Healthy Lifestyle Program: There’s no need to starve yourself or spend every waking hour at the gym. Our eight-week program leverages a ketogenic diet designed to help your body burn fat as its primary fuel source instead of carbs (sugar). Along with promoting weight loss this program will also have you feeling more energetic and focused.

No matter which route you decide to take to get back to your body, remember that confidence and positivity are key! I know that’s where I am trying to focus right now. Just please; please don’t ask me to try those bikinis on for at least another month. I’ve got to load up on some leafy greens first. Goal: to look just like I did in the above photo. Who cares if it was back in college. Anything is possible, right?!
