Honoring Her Mother by Living Well: The LysaMarie Matamoros Interview

LysaMarie knew something was different about her lower body, but remained undiagnosed for years. Gastric bypass, endless exercise - nothing helped. It was only when she started connecting on Instagram that she saw other bodies like her own, which eventually led to the medical treatment that helped her reclaim her life.

It’s Time to Stop Hiding: The April Sluder Interview

April Sluder's Lovely Lipedema Ladies Facebook group is inspiring! From "Selfie Sundays" asking members to show their beautiful faces, or quotes like "It's not your job to like me. It's mine..." from Byron Katie, her mission is clear: "I help people see their own worth and live life unapologetically." A Masters' level social worker and Certified Life Coach, April also has lipedema. She always noticed something was different about her legs, but after the birth of her second daughter, her condition became more pronounced. When a contestant on The Biggest Loser was diagnosed with lipedema, April had a realization: "That's me!" This led to a formal diagnosis from Dr. Steven Dean from Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center. She still says "my legs fight me" but she continues to press through while encouraging others.
