To be pain-free and achieve her desired weight… Steffi could never have dreamed of that! For many years (especially after her diagnosis in 2014), she struggled with the negative consequences of her lipedema – until she became aware of Foodpunk and the lipedema program and her life turned 180 degrees. Now she is fitter than ever and finally feels comfortable in her body again!
Two years after being diagnosed with lipoedema, Steffi became pregnant. To support her health and alleviate her lipoedema pain, she initially tried to lose her excess weight with a low-carb diet – but was only partially successful. Despite slight weight loss, improved the feeling of tension and the pain did not. The severe pain in her upper arms and legs in particular, as well as all the standing she had to do while working in retail, was becoming increasingly difficult for her. In March of last year, her suffering became so great that something finally had to change!
At first, Steffi tried to get pregnant again with the help of hormone treatment, but after a miscarriage and further treatments, the second child she had been longing for unfortunately did not materialize.
