Lippa Britta meets Miss Lipo: learn to live with lipedema! - Part 1

Hello dear ones,

Today I have a topic that is particularly close to my heart.

Probably the most popular topic of the community. How does it look with you? How did you find your way or are you still looking? I had the wonderful Chrissy alias Miss Lipo to visit me and we immediately took that as an opportunity to talk about it.

Is it really always easy to deal with or do the people who look particularly easy also have a hard time?

I am often told that I exude an incredible amount of ease and self-confidence. Of course, these are compliments that I'm very happy about. But it's always not that easy for me either. Since it is the same with Chrissy, today we would like to introduce you to a few little things how we deal with the disease.

Learning to live with lipedema

  1. Find out about your illness.
    What exactly is lipedema anyway? (Here you can get to the article and the corresponding video.)
  2. Accept things that I can't change
    Of course, that does not mean that you should accept the lipedema, but first accept it. If I know what kind of illness I have, I can also learn what is good for me. What can I do for myself and my body so that I can support it particularly well? For example, change your diet (there will definitely be a large and detailed report on this), integrate more exercise into everyday life.
  3. Seek inspiration.
    Have a look around, what possibilities are there to change my appearance in such a way that I feel (more) comfortable. In my case and also in Chrissy's case, they are clearly clothes. Transform the compression into a fashionable outfit (you can find this especially here in the category Fashion and outfits an incredible amount of stimulation in lipedema fashion). There are now so many magical girls who give us an insight into their everyday life and take something with them on Instagram or other social media platforms.

But it is particularly important that you do not give up!

 

The lipedema is really mean, yes. But life is so beautiful and there is so much worth living, we have to keep that in mind. Believe in yourself and don't let it get you down. We are all such a great community now and there is always the opportunity to contact us and ask questions.

Let's be strong together.

Your Britta and Chrissy

I'm Caroline, born in 1989 and live in Augsburg. Why did I start the lipedema fashion blog? At the beginning of my diagnosis I was completely helpless before an uncertain future. Now, a few years later, through active participation in self-help groups and a lot of research, I have accumulated a wealth of experience that I would like to make available to other affected persons in one place - without the detour via private groups on Facebook. The fashion component is of course due to my hobby. At the time, I promised myself that I would never be restricted by compression stockings. This attitude gives other patients courage and so Michaela advised me to start a blog.
