Sport with lipedema: from having to to want to

How many times have I tried to get myself up. “I have to do sports. I have to lose weight. I need to eat healthier. I have to look better on the beach. " Countless failed attempts to finally get the curve, fight my weaker self and start the latest diet. I managed to lose weight in stages, but it was never fun. The motivation varied from Full power! zu I have no time. The same problem that countless others face:

How do I motivate myself to do sports, to change life, to rethink?

Flip the famous switch. Sounds easy, but it is far from being. Because this switch only throws itself when it really is Click has made and the thoughts of Have to in the Want switch. “I want to do sports. I want to lose weight. I want to eat healthier. I don't have to look better on the beach, I just have to recognize my real goal: a better life. " I emphasize quite consciously that you don't lose worries with pounds. But the transformation strengthens self-esteem, self-awareness and makes you a braver person. You prove to yourself every day anew what you are capable of, what strength you have in you. And that shapes you, your demeanor and your thoughts.

The Have to slows you down and burdens you so much that every upset and the frustration of not having persevered again consumes you more and more. And you can't let that happen. It's time to show yourself that you can do it and that anything is possible. No matter what you weigh now, how little sport you have done in your life or how much time you have. If you have your goal firmly in mind, you believe in everything and you make it your priority, you can achieve anything you want so dearly.

Exercise cannot cure lipedema

Whether you want to lose weight in the end or not, exercise will always be good for you. It won't cure your lipedema, but the movement stimulates lymph flow and makes you more resilient. Just because doctors tell us that you can't change your lip fat with exercise doesn't mean you can't devote yourself to healthy fat. Down with it and towards a healthy and active everyday life! This works with practically every physical condition, even the smallest progress is not a standstill or even a deterioration at the end of the day (and everything is better than that).

Where do I begin?

Every beginning is difficult and at the beginning you should take the liberty and just look around curiously to see what offers are available and try them out. Do you prefer to exercise with others or at home alone? Do you have time for regular appointments or do you need to be able to remain independent? Do you like to train outside, in the water or inside?

In order to introduce you to the topic a little, we will be introducing you to a variety of sports opportunities over the next few weeks. These are easily feasible with lipedema and have been put through their paces by the editorial team. So be open to new suggestions, strengthen your will and take the first step into a new life. It is worth it!

Best regards,

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.
