It obviously improves our physical strength, our muscles, balance, etc., but by taking action, it can improve our emotional strength, too.
Lipedema can be viscous, and try on the daily to strip away our mobility, so every minute we can invest into stopping that is so important.
Having self care routines to help our skin, or movements to pump our lymphatics is huge also, but one of the biggest improvements to my quality of life has been strength training.
It got my core strong, and gave me back my mobility. It is what keeps me moving, even when menopause has brought on more mobility challenges recently.
And it doesn’t have to be all or nothing, even ten minutes is good, or five, or whatever you are capable of. #allorsomething - a little more today than yesterday.
Keep fighting for your strength, and mobility. Seek out whatever helps you get there. There is not just one right way of living with Lipedema.
