‘Sturdy’ is often used as a euphemism for ‘fat’ – something I’ve been called my entire life – but women with lipedema and lymphedema embody so many other aspects of the definition. Our diagnosis requires physical and emotional strength to maintain strict, time consuming self-care routines day in and day out. This blog strives to be a source of encouragement to love your body and yourself so you can ultimately live your best lippy life.

About Me

Hi, I’m Rebekah. I was diagnosed with lipedema and lymphedema in 2020. Since then I have transformed my health and my life for the better, but it hasn’t always been easy. This blog is an honest reflection on what has worked for me and what continues to be a challenge. Thanks for being here. I am excited to share this journey with you!
