About me

Hi, I’m Sophie from Manchester in the UK.

Having spent all my teenage and adult years hating my legs, I decided enough was enough last summer. As I reached my late twenties, I not only hated the physical appearance of them, but I also had daily heaviness and pain too. I knew something wasn’t right.

I managed to get a Lipedema diagnosis in the UK at the end of last year, and then also in Spain in early 2023. I’m now counting down the months until my first WAL liposuction surgery in October 2023.

I’ll be documenting it all to help other women who suspect they might have Lipedema, or those who already have a diagnosis. From surgery to diet and everything in between.
