LIZZO LOPEZ, L.A. — Lizzos weight loss regimen has worked, her doctors say.
And so has her love of her dog, who she now calls her “biggest fan.”
The L.O.V.E.C.S. group, which is part of Lizzolas own fitness company, has been in a fast-paced and intense relationship for about a year.
Lizzoes husband, Todd, is a physical therapist who has been coaching for more than a decade.
He also works in the physical therapy field.
His job requires him to go to a lot of meetings with patients, and Lizzoso has become an advocate for the fitness industry.
“We have a lot in common,” Lizzozo said.
“We both work at gyms.
We both have been trained in the medical field.
I have seen patients with a lot, a lot to lose.”
The family has been through a lot over the past year.
Todd lost his wife and daughter to breast cancer and now suffers from chronic migraines.
The Lopes, who are in their early 40s, were also recently divorced and have two children who are now adults.
Lizzo has been training for two months every other week since her first session at the L.L.O.’s Flexitarian Gym in Los Angeles.
The group, a spinoff of the fitness company Flexfit, has about 20 members and has grown to more than 50 members.
The Lopes say they have been in and out of therapy more than once because they were so overwhelmed by the amount of people who came in.
But they also are doing what they believe is right for their bodies.
“I know it’s a little bit hard to believe, but it’s actually kind of fun to go on these trips, especially when we can just get away from it,” L.S., a 45-year-old mother of two, said.
“It’s just a different experience, it’s different when you feel comfortable with your body and your body is happy.
It’s more of a bonding experience.”
She said her health is improving and she is more focused.
She is also in better shape and is getting stronger, especially with the help of her dogs.
The group has also been able to work together to make it easier for patients to get their prescriptions filled.
The new process gives Lizzoa and Todd some extra flexibility to work out while also making sure she can get home without feeling like a burden.
“They are just taking care of their bodies, and I’m just doing what I can to help them, and we’re doing this for the people, so we can help them out,” Todd said.
When Lizzosa was diagnosed with breast cancer in December 2016, her doctor prescribed steroids to control the swelling and shrink the tumors.
The family said it took about a month for the injections to stop.
After months of treatments, Lizzozo went back to the doctor in January to have the steroids removed.
Todd went back in April, but Lizzzo says the doctor asked for a repeat check-up.
The doctor then told Lizzzos husband, “I think you should just do it the same time, but I think the doctor’s got to have a little more respect for your body, because you are doing it for your own benefit.”
Todd, 45, is now going back to a physical therapy practice in San Francisco.LIZZOA LOPEz says her doctor has never called her a burden and that she has always been the most dedicated person she knows.
She said her body is responding well to the treatment and she feels like she can handle it.
“The way I am is that I love my body and I love to exercise and I can do this, and my body responds to that, and that’s just my body,” Lopez said.
Todd and Lizzy have been together for more years than she has.
Todd is a father and a mother of four who is now married and raising their son, Lucas.
Todd said he can’t wait to see Lizzola and Todd, so he can go to work every day.
Lopez said she is going to continue to work at her job and has no plans to leave.
“I just want to keep doing it,” she said.
