A model with a lipedema inspires others not to be ashamed of their body

Heather Johnson (Heather Johnson) spent years on diets, until she learned that the fullness of her legs is a consequence of a disease called lipedema. Despite this, the American became a model and now inspires other girls not to be ashamed of their body. More than half a million users have subscribed to Heather's Instagram page, who admire her courage and positive attitude to her body.

38-year-old Heather is a mother of four children. She suffers from lipedema, a disease in which a large amount of fat accumulates in the extremities. The upper part of the American woman's body is much smaller than the lower one.

Unaware of her diagnosis, the South Carolina resident had been on diets for many years. She lost weight, then gained weight again, but she could not achieve the desired result. At the age of 31, the woman weighed 192 kg, and after surgery to reduce the stomach, she lost 75 kg.

Heather suffered from excess weight all her life. She started losing weight at the age of six. But despite all the efforts, the American woman's legs and arms remained thick. It was only after reading about lipedem that she finally understood why her body was different from the others.

The model says that it is not easy to live with such a diagnosis. My legs hurt, and bruises often appear on them. In addition, it is difficult for Heather to keep her balance, because the lower part of the body is much heavier than the upper one. She is forced to wear compression clothing to make it easier to move around.

The American woman publishes sexy pictures in social networks, in which she poses in beautiful outfits, underwear and bikinis, not being shy of her forms. She wants to be an example for other women with a non-standard figure and tell about the features of her illness.

It is not easy to recognize a lipedema. British Zoe Pearce, like Heather, had been on diets for a long time, until she found out that her thick legs were due to an illness.
