It was a patient-only evening on the panel of the March Lipedema Patient Roundtable, and the conversation flowed! Excitement surrounding the upcoming Fat Disorders Resource Society (FDRS) Conference, carefulness about ingredients both ingested and applied on the skin (even toothpaste!), and the formation of an Instagram #LPVibeChallenge where Roundtablers post selfies while using their vibration plates were all covered.
Chat was outrageously robust and profound, with one participant dropping this wisdom: “Your worth is not your weight.” Discussion about the mental strain associated with the number on the scale ensued, with the anchors sharing their stories of empowerment and self-assurance.
Thank you to Cara Cruz (@PaleGingerPear rocking new, deep red hair), Pattie Cornute (@LipedemaFitness with an upcoming talk at FDRS), Cheryl Scoledge (@LipedemaDiva), Siouxie Boshoff (@Lipedema.Living), and Angelique Charles (@TheLippyButterfly), combining to create another magical, inspiring night.
The Lipedema Patient Roundtables are held every third Wednesday of the month and brought to you by Lympha Press, makers of the Optimal Plus. The Optimal Plus was specifically designed for lipedema patients, who report results that include reduced pain and increased mobility. Lipolymphedema patients benefit from the movement of lymph that Optimal Plus therapy provides, and often experience reduction in size. Find out more by visiting www.lymphapress.com.
