I've got a confession to make, girls. I've been beating myself up EVERYDAY for not blogging more and really getting this site going. I've also been beating myself up for not being the most compliant Lipedema patient. This has got to stop! I intend to use June and Lipedema Awareness Month as my opportunity to release the self-beat up about my fat legs and my blog in more ways than one!
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.
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.
