When the basketball team bullied this cheerleader by saying, “There’s tree trunk legs,” Liz Saunders became acutely aware that her body was different.
But that didn’t stop her.
A natural performer, she participated in dance and theatre, developed her singing gift, appeared in a national commercial, and entertained many with her renditions of the American songbook classics.
It took this 50-something-year-old adult several years to finally get a diagnosis after going to different doctors who said, “There’s nothing wrong with you.”
She persisted and found a doctor who not only diagnosed her with lipedema, but prescribed a Lympha Press. “It has been fantastic. The process was surprisingly quick and easy and so is using my Lympha Press. I feel better and in just a month I’ve lost weight!”
Though results vary for every patient and the main goal is reduced pain and increased mobility, for the first time in years, Liz broke the 200-pound plateau and she credits the change to her Lympha Press.
Her life is dedicated to fitness and, at Wiser Health and Fitness, offers personal training for all people. “I feel this is my calling,” says Liz.
Be inspired by her story, her spirit, and her determination to move — something Liz says she was born to do.
