    Shelly Frazier Hello, I have about 50lbs to lose and have Lipo-lymphedema in both legs. I have been walking an average of 7 miles a day for the past 2 weeks and I feel good but am just trying to figure out is that too much and will it do more bad than good for me?

      Susan Fondy For me, the biggest thing is keeping track of how my arm responds to different things. I take serial measurements especially after doing something different. That helps me determine what is good, what neutral, and what is bad for my arm.
