Mesotherapy is a straight up miracle.I have never been severely overweight except for that one time after a breakup where I ate my feelings for a bit. I lost that weight and never looked back. I have always been skinny fat though even at my thinest 104 lbs at 5 feet 2 inches I still had those annoying bumps on my hips and thighs… except after I did a series of mesotherapy. I had 5 sessions and these are the results. I did them once every two weeks 5 times and I swear the fat just melted.I did it before I went on a Mexican vacation with my financè. I cannot stress how great it felt to walk around without feeling self conscious about my thighs. I felt so free to even run around the pool and beach without the angst and fear of cellulite ruining my pictures and or social media posts.
I remember being at the radio station doing my morning show when my cohost asked me about my divorce. On air. I wanted to kill him because he knew that it was a touchy subject for me and I was still holding onto the embarrassment, the failure that comes with it. I answered his questions apprehensively while my armpits began to sweat profusely!
That feels like forever ago because I can now discuss it freely without the shame I once had. When I decided to do the show, “Connected,” I had to put it all out there, without holding back, and I certainly did that. When I appear in my first episode, the description of me reads: Rosie Noesi, TV and radio personality, 33, divorced BAM and living with boyfriend BAM!!
Most girls grow up dreaming of their perfect wedding day. Planning every little detail from the dream dress right down to the perfect nail polish color. I even practiced and acted out this perfect dream day using pillowcases as veils and playing house with my neighbors and family members.
The morning that I said, “I do,” I really didn’t have the glitz and glamor people usually experience on their wedding day. No champagne with the bridesmaids, no relaxing and being pampered. Me, being the people pleaser that I am, frantically drove 40 minutes to my hairstylist because she said that I was too out of her way to come to me. She gave me the “Snookie” poof in the front, secured my wedding veil and I was off to my next stop: Blimpie’s to pick up my bridesmaids’ sandwiches.
I went in there with my hair done and veil on and the guy at the counter said, “hey are you getting married today?” I responded, “yes I am!” At that moment he looked at me completely puzzled and said, “don’t you have someone who could have picked these up for you, considering it’s your wedding day?”
I took a second as I let his comment sink in and I responded with the only answer I could muster up. “Who else is going to do it?”
When I got home, I entered the front door and saw myself reflected in the dining room mirror. I screamed at the top of my lungs. My hair looked like a “Jersey Shore” nightmare come true! This completely startled my 12-year-old sister, who looked at me with pure fear in her eyes.
I started tearing apart the poof that I just dished out $260 for and drove 80 minutes round trip to get. A half hour later, I finally felt a calm come over me as I salvaged my debacle of a hairdo. Then much to my surprise, I broke out in uncontrollable tears.
After I wiped the first batch off my face with a tissue, more tears followed. My sister screamed for my mother. Once she got to the bedroom, she took one look at me and burst into tears herself, running from the room.
“Why are you crying?” I am continually asked.
“I don’t know, I don’t know.”
My bridesmaid Amber asked me if I wanted to get married.
“Yes, of course I do. We’ve been together forever.”
My father wanted to know what I needed, and I told him a tequila shot. My parents unanimously said, “No! You can’t go drunk to church.”
My mom finally handed me a glass of water and told me to drink it. I did, and 20 minutes later, I felt a bit calmer. I washed my face and continued on with my day. My makeup artist came over and made me look like the perfect little bride.
I said my vows unknowingly drugged. I found out two weeks later that my mother had slipped me a sedative.
What I didn’t realize at the time is that my inner self was speaking to me. Even though my conscious self didn’t know it wasn’t the best idea to tie the knot, my soul was crying out for help.
Emotions are tiny indicators of what’s going on inside. Most of the time we are so busy making plans and trying to fulfill goals that we miss the little whispers our intuition is trying to give us. When you’re going through a tough situation and feel obligated to continue, you ignore your intuition only to find out later those whispers were right. You say to yourself, “I knew it… I just knew it.”
The answer is, you did know it. You just weren’t aware that you knew it.
We have to learn techniques to tune in and make sense of the messages coming into our lives. When something doesn’t feel 100 percent correct, stop and go into the silence. Meditate. And if you don’t know how, LEARN!
It took me six whole months to meditate for five minutes. I took the hard route and learned to do it myself. Now there are so many ways to start.
Sometimes we are so used to not trusting ourselves that we can’t even hear our soul crying. We end up making choices out of fear. Instead of me questioning the feelings that had arose the day of my wedding day, I just got a Band-Aid (in the form of narcotics) and never dealt with my emotions. When you drink, smoke or take a pill you are ignoring the problem — it doesn’t go away. You just become a problem hoarder.
You’re walking around with a load of problems on your mind that can explode in the most unexpected ways in your life. You miss opportunities because you’re not in the moment. You can’t fully be immersed in the here and now — you aren’t fully living.
Today my choice is to practice happiness. And I’m going to get so freaking good at it, when those emotions come up and throw me off, I’ll use that opportunity to listen really good and hard, then get quiet to make the decision that will continue to keep me in that happy state of mind.
There is no reason to live frozen in life. You have to start to face those scary emotions head on, because if you don’t you will end up trying to survive instead of thrive.
1) Save on Booking Your Flight! Spend Wisely
When planning your next much needed get away wouldn’t it be nice to save some money on your airfare? Well here is a little tip that you may not know. Domestic flights on Tuesdays and Wednesday’s are less expensive than any other day of the week. Most people are unaware of this little unknown fact and instead opt to travel Friday and Saturday when airfare is at a premium. So instead of giving this money away to the airlines put it in your pocket and spoil yourself. Splurge and treat yourself to a relaxing massage on the beach or a lovely dinner. My fiancé Josh is a sound supervisor on TV shows and his career has him traveling all the time. I try to visit him as much as possible so I am always looking to get the best deal available to me!
WHAT: Shoe modeling is an amazing way to make extra cash while breaking into the entertainment platform. As a size 6 shoe I never thought that my feet were ever going to make me any money but they do! You see, shoe companies need small feet to showcase their new season’s shoe lines for the buyers that come in to buy the newest stock for their stores.
WHY:The benefits of becoming a shoe model are many. First off, they feed you breakfast and lunch and snacks along the day. The second most convenient part about shoe modeling is that its only 4 weeks a year so its not all year round giving you plenty of time to take on other projects. Third why its so great because they also let you keep some of the shoe samples that don’t make it into the season’s collection. Free food and shoes!!! SCORE
HOW: The pay is truly amazing. They pay $450 a day from 9-5. If you are needed before 9am or after 5pm you get $75 overtime per hour and sometimes I end up taking home $550 a day. I usually work a 4 day work week and the take home pay is $1,500 to $1,800 a week.They also reimburse your mani/pedi which is a great perk!
TIPS:Well I lucked out because my friend who couldn’t commit to a shoe show and luckily knew that I was a size 6 shoe passed my information onto her shoe modeling agency. Yes, there are shoe modeling agencies, and not even a week later I was sent out on “go sees” (basically auditions for my feet) and the shoe companies checked out if your particular brand fits your feet and ankles correctly.They had you walk with the shoes on and if you fit the description they are asking for and you don’t fall on your face while walking in the shoes, your golden!
Seastarstalent.com is the Agency I belong to.
TIPS: My advice for someone wanting to get into this field is know your brand. They usually have a specific look they want for example, olive skin and long haired girl, all American look, or Urban look. I myself wouldn’t try to go for a gig which doesn’t correlate with my look. Also if your foot is jacked up… shoe modeling is not for you. Its a fun job with many perks so if you are able to break into the industry just enjoy the ride.
INVESTMENT: No investment except for the initial manicure pedicure you need for your “Go see” but don’t forget to bring your smile when meeting the shoe companies.
