I have been following Weight Watchers since the beginning of February and have lost about 17 lbs. My problem is I have lymphedema in both my legs and now is the time of year that they really swell. I have started using my pump again hoping to keep the swelling down some. Anyone else have it besides me?

I also am currently on Weight Watcher's and suffer from Lympedema. It Sucks!!!!!! I do have it in both leg's.. also ankles and feet. I have shown sign's of it for a few years now, but put it off as obesity. Summer is my worst time. I swell bad. I currently found a Dr. who is sending me for literally 11 tests, and also sending me to a lymphedema physical therapist and kidney specialist. It is the most difficult because everyone at my groups see so much positive result's. My weight can fluctuate 10lbs or more depending on swelling and water retention. So I don't know an acurate weight. Do you have similar problems?
