If you take anything away from this, know that the first step is the biggest, set small attainable goals to get yourself started and feeling victorious, and most of all, never, ever, ever, give up!! The Lipedema race is not given to the swift....it's given to those ladies who are determined not to take no, you can't lose weight" for an answer.
Marie Claire Magazine describes the challenges faced when trying to lose weight, seeking a Lipedema diagnosis, and the struggle of managing and treating the condition. I share my story with over 1 million print subscribers and countless women online (the site will publish the article online soon). I hope women who identify with our stories are able to seek out the support and treatment they need, and can gain hope from my successes in managing my Lipedema.
I'm so grateful that so many women have checked out my blog. I just want to say thank you to all my followers and visitors! You all have inspired me to continue sharing my journey, and everyday you remind me that I am not alone. Suffering in physical and psychological pain from Lipedema for so many years without a diagnosis left me feeling isolated, like so many of you have told me you felt. Now, we have each other. LipLadyFAB.com statistics are proof of that!
Dr. David Amron, renowned lipedema surgeon of Beverly Hills, Calif, brings to light the struggle of living with this often-misdiagnosed disease called lipedema. Join him and his patients as they take you through their emotional journey, from diagnosis to recovery, of living with lipedema and how Dr. Amron’s treatment changed their lives for the better. With June marking Lipedema Awareness Month, Dr. Amron and his patients hope to shine #LightOnLipedema and educate the public on this disease.
