I speak from experience.
I consider myself on the skinny side. Not super model thin but more like slender with a little jiggle...and a touch of cellulite.
I'd like to say my little dimples don't bother me but then I'd be lying. It's like I woke up one day and realized that I'm in my LATE twenties instead of my Early twenties and that there is a big difference between the two. My dreams off being discovered as America's Next Top Model in the local mall are over now.
I started dying my hair on a regular basis to cover the gray instead of doing it to look fashionable.
I stopped looking in the Juniors department when I go clothes shopping now.
I slather on extra 70 SPF sunscreen when I go out.
I don't think I even own a pair of thong underwear anymore.
And I just purchased my first bottle of cellulite cream.
I should put a sign on the front door that says "Welcome to almost 30".
My husband has no sympathy for me or my cellulite. My husband has the most perfectly smooth, lump free man bum I've ever seen. When I complain to my husband about my cellulite his response is "then you should bike to work, I do". I swear to God that is what he just said to me as I typed this post. So apparently my husband has the perfect un-lumpy rump because he bikes one sixteenth of a mile to his job everyday.
Anyway, back to me and my car ride loving cellulite.
I'm pretty sure that cellulite cream works...but not the way it was intended. You see, ladies like myself buy the cream/lotion/goo and proceed to rub themselves down with it while praying to the cottage cheese fairy to take it all away. But subconsciously we try to eat better and exercise more... like taking the stairs 2 at a time instead of one at a time or doing lunges down the school hallway instead of walking like a normal person. And over time we notice fewer dents and jiggles so we think, "This cellulite cream is a miracle!".
I know this is true and yet I can not stop myself from buying the overpriced tube of hope and replaying in my head the scene from Silence of the Lambs... "It rubs the lotion on it's skin or it gets the hose again!"
