Active with lipedema: the simplest motivational tricks

- Advertising -

How many times have I started turning my life upside down, losing weight and doing more exercise? Probably as often as you do. Countless years of good intentions flew by. There was always much more important to do than take care of yourself. And the strength that is necessary for such a big change in life is not something you shake off your sleeve. Getting active in sports with lipedema does not seem to be feasible. Especially not if you weren't sure about it before the diagnosis. But are we really so different from healthy people?

It often helps me to compare my problems with those of people without chronic diseases. If they are the same or at least similar, then that somehow makes me calmer and it disempowers the lipedema. It is often comforting when you are not alone with your worries.

I have an idea. Or two. No, three.

As is so often the case, when something does not go easily, you have to look for the cause and make things easier for yourself. To determine the cause if you have difficulty being active with lipedema, I recommend these articles:

For example, I've now realized that I'm doing the whole thing for myself and my body. He also signaled to me very honestly that I hadn't listened to him for the past few months. In addition, I feel defiant enough for an entire soccer team in my stomach area that I have to get rid of this boggy on the sofa. The dietary changes has already worked, now the head has to work! But how do we trick him again?

Give me five minutes to change your life forever. Or just read on, maybe that will help.

Put on sporty clothes in the morning or right after work

Don't laugh, I'm serious! One of the hurdles to getting into a more active life is getting started. Changing clothes for an activity is an extra effort, which after a long day or with tired bones and small eyes in the morning is often enough to postpone it to the next day. But if you get dressed right away in such a way that you can get off right away, the hurdle has already been overcome. Then putting on normal clothes again is a disgrace that one would rather not give oneself.

So trick yourself by not making yourself too comfortable. Once on the couch, it will be difficult for her to let go of you. That pig priest.

Wait a moment,
... bastard,
... pig priest.
It all makes sense now!

Look ridiculously good while doing it

I value my wardrobe in every life situation. Well, at most when I sleep, I turn a blind eye. But why do you dress well? Because you want to please yourself and, above all, feel good.

If you look at the runners in the park or in the gym at the other athletes while you are out for a walk, you quickly see that you don't seem to take the potential of a cool sports outfit very seriously. I made the same mistake. But how can I let myself slide energetically and fully motivated onto the yoga mat when I look like I'm mumbling into bed with a hot water bottle?

Aha! Problem recognized, problem eliminated. Thanks to these metallic leggings, I not only look highly motivated, mine too Steel cheeks suppose I could crack walnuts with you. I can too, but you just can't see the compression.

You'd better watch out."

Going out is enough

You don't have to exercise every time you've thrown on your hot workout clothes. Just go outside first. With an accompaniment, a wuffer or maybe just a good podcast on your ears. Every step counts, at least as a movement.

You don't have to become a sports cannon overnight. It's enough for me if you just look like one at first.

Most importantly, you start your activities in compression, or at least in sportswear with compression effects. I know I've slipped this cassette into your ear too many times, but that's what makes it important. Only in compression can you achieve significant tissue improvement and that's what should be the focus in sports with lipedema.

Well, optics also play a role, that's why I have mine mediven® 550 In the medi trend color purple, it has now also been chosen for sports compression so that my sports outfit always comes into its own. I am like the purple lightning, Darkwing Duck, the steel crocus.
