The 30-Day Cellulite Challenge: Day 9

So, yes, shockingly, the results of the 30-Day Cellulite Challenge seem to suggest that this is actually working. I’ve got less cellulite — or should I say, there appears to be less of an appearance of cellulite — on my butt for pretty sure, although the upper-thighs I’m not so sure about.

Speaking of which, what the hell is cellulite anyway? According to Wikipedia, it’s “a modification of skin topography evident by skin dimpling and nodularity that occurs mainly in women on the pelvic region, lower limbs, and abdomen and is caused by the herniation of subcutaneous fat within fibrous connective tissue, leading to a padded or orange peel–like appearance.” Now that sounds sexy.
