    thank you so much for this wonderful information. I was recently diagnosed (ind December 2013) with lymphedema in my left arm and hand as a result of a 25 year old breast cancer surgery where 3 lymph nodes were removed. I was fortunate in that I never had to undergo radiation or chemotherapy – just the surgery. I have been attending weight watchers for 2 years trying to lose weight. So far I have lost about 42 pounds. I have 20 pounds to go to reach my intended goal, but since May, 2013 I have not been able to lose any significant amount of weight. I have been “hovering” around this weight which keeps me 20 pounds from my intended goal. I originally thought I was in a plateau, but a plateau wouldn’t last 10 months (I don’t think). Your explanation of how this lymphedema condition could be contributing to my weight loss impairment, makes total sense to me, and confirms my suspicion that the lymphedema is a significant factor in preventing me from making further progress. I am definitely going to add the lymphatic yoga to my daily maintenance routine and hope that this effort will get me back on track. I am actually confident that it will. Thank you so much for all of this information – I have hope again!
