In “Lip Lady Fab’s 5 Step Guide to Loving Your Legs After a Lipedema Diagnosis,” you’ll discover:
How I went from being nearly bed-ridden and suicidal, to loving my big fat legs and losing approximately 45lbs
I’ll share my journey with enrolling my family and my primary doctor into my treatment plan, seeking out therapists and a surgeon
