Lipedema / lipoedema Awareness Day 21: #ihaveembraced

By June 21, 2014 One Comment

There’s more to the story: there may be more WHYS to body SIZE!

Kudos to Taryn Brumfitt, who after 3 pregnancies was contemplating cosmetic surgery and did a complete turn around and asked herself, what if, WHAT IF, I begin to love my body just as it is, right now. As a woman with lipedema, I relate to the struggle and the constant desire to have a normal body, whatever “normal” is. So today, in honor of the act of courageousness to step into the limelight and stand up and say “EMBRACE” the body you have, here is Body Image Movement and Taryn’s kickstarter video, she has raised over $300,000 of her original $200,000 goal. Hooray for a movement to help all women move beyond the cultural traps around body size.

    To me the issue is about improved HEALTH…the liposuction surgery improves the HEALTH of the lymph system and person. My loved one who has it is drop dead gorgeous AS IS but I want her to be healthy her whole life. My condition is related and disfiguring so I understand wanting to feel beautiful but my priorities have changed to my health.
