Discovering I had Lipedema was heartbreaking and depressing at first, especially when I realized the treatments can only do so much, that all these years I’d thought it was my fault, and that the work was just beginning if I want to take back my mobility and my joy. I committed myself to living an active life and overcoming the fear and shame of having big legs. I also committed to sharing my journey through my blog, and now, my first ever e-book!
I’ll be releasing my first-ever digital e-book, titled “Lip Lady Fab’s 5 Step Guide to Loving Your Legs After a Lipedema Diagnosis!” The downloadable e-book will be released to the public on July 17, 2017, however you can pre-order the book now at 15% off the retail price, AND download it a day before the general public!
Despite the fact that Lipedema fat doesn’t respond to traditional weight loss methods, it is possible to achieve better fitness level and lose some weight in the process. Those suffering from Lipedema can control their symptoms, manage inflammation, and lose some weight in the process. Dieting and exercise helps to control and manage the progression of Lipedema, so weight management is critical to keeping the disease in check. Of course, tumescent liposuction is the best treatment for painful Lipedema fat removal, but what if surgery is not an option for you at the moment? This article will go through the ten best Fitness Tips to Lose Weight with Lipedema, as well as pain management tips to help you get started toward a healthier, more active life!
