Living with Lipedema

The fat disease

Obesity runs in my family. So, it was no surprise to me that I was overweight. The first diet I remember going on to lose weight, around age 11, was grapefruit and tomato juice. It tasted gross, but my mother was doing it, so I thought it would work for me. I also ate her appetite suppressant candy.
