Carol Moody is one determined woman.
At puberty, her weight skyrocketed by 60 pounds, though her eating and exercise habits hadn’t changed. Strict diets with no results followed and doctors suggested that she would eventually be bedridden.
“I was determined NOT to be bedridden,” says Carol. The idea of being wheelchair-bound was a wake-up call.
Carol was no stranger to adversity; legally blind, her mindset has always been to “find a way.”
By 2014, swelling progressed to cellulitis that had become septic. In 2015, her body was filled with fluid. Prescribed water pills that didn’t help, she researched decongestive surgery, which was frowned upon by her doctor. Carol’s response? “I’m going to go anyway.”
What’s most remarkable about Carol’s story is her determination to give this fight “everything she’s got” because she is WORTH it. Learn of her Keto diet success (losing 118 pounds) and how Lympha Press helps her successfully manage her Stage 3 lipedema/Stage 2 lymphedema. Hear about the importance of “finding your tribe” like Pattie Cornute’s @LipedemaFitness or Catherine Seo’s Lipedema Simplified.
