Losing weight in hips and thighs

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in hips and thighs


Avatar f tn How can I lose weight overall, but mostly in my thighs. My hips are naturally wide, it runs in my family, but within the past two years I've gotten unfit. My hips are wider and my thighs are bigger. I don't have much of a problem with my stomach. My goal is to make my thighs smaller and lose the cellulite. I'd like to lose about 20 lbs. and tone up my thighs especially. Any suggestions on how to do this? All help thanked!
740456 tn?1260449809 I know that I have a pretty flat bum, but I have alot of fat in my arms, thighs and waist. When I started to gain weight I noticed that most of it gravitated toward my arms, and they will problem the last part of my body to catch up to the rest of me.
5946774 tn?1389187935 All my family always told me that wheb your pregnant with girls you get wider than with boys. My hips and butt have grown soooo much and the weird thing is I eat a lot healthier and actually exercise at least 5 days a week with this pregnancy neither of which I did with my son yet my lower half has a mind of it's own. Anyone else pregnant with a girl and butt and hip/thigh area gotten bigger?
Avatar n tn I have lost inches in the hips and thighs mostly, lets just say i was wearing a size 8 in jeans now i should be wearing a 4 or smaller. The thing that really scares me is the shrinking of the hips and thighs. I do have an appt. this Friday to see what if anything they find. I am 5'2 and have always weighed between 115-120; never over or under. My thyroid levels have always been fine according to previous blood work, I don't know what the results were back then.
Avatar m tn At 5'3" and 112 lbs, you don't need to lose another 7; you will be underweight. You're barely within the normal range, as it is.
10527507 tn?1444453381 I'm 3 weeks post partum and I noticed that I gained most of my weight in my hips/thighs, how long (if ever) does it take for your hips to go back to "normal" I went from a size 3 to a size 6. I'm in the military and I reallly don't want to buy all new uniforms, I have 3 weeks but doubt it's happening. Lol thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn 18 weeks and losing my butt it used to be nice & plump but now its just stomach and no ***
Avatar m tn now I am back to diet and exercise (I am eating more, but the exercise makes me hungry, but its mainly more fruit, bigger salad, etc...) and I am losing weight but slower than when I did not even notice that I was losing weight. I have dieted before and I have NEVER seen myself lose weight when I was not focused. I don't get it. I am not sick or anything and I am only on allergy medication (I don't even take it much).
Avatar f tn ) Im not super big at 35 weeks..but where I was before I was pregnant..I def feel a got this ladies!! Not too much longer..
Avatar f tn I can pull them up without unbuttoning them but my hips and thighs are starting to fill them in pretty well. I go shopping a lot for exercise, I don't buy anything I just walk around the store and's winter, there's no way I'm going outside.
Avatar f tn Muscle is your friend... however, make sure your strength training (weight lifting) is utilizing low weight and high repetitions... you most likely do not want to bulk up.
Avatar f tn I havent gotten any of my belly yet but the little tiny ones from gaining and losing weight in highschool that are just getting longer and longer on my thighs and hips, they started at like an inch and now some of them are 3-4 inches! my mom got stretch marks realy bad so im screwed lol.
Avatar f tn t have to buy any special equipment to build muscle in your hips and thighs. Instead, try doing body-weight exercises. Lunges work your knees, legs and hips, and you can do them in extended sets to get a moderate cardiovascular workout. Squats will work your lower body in addition to your abs and back, helping you build strength. Try leg lifts to get your thighs in shape. You can do leg lifts lying on your back or your side, or sitting in a chair.
Avatar f tn I go to the gym 4 times a week and swim and eat well, my diet hasnt changed and i dont eat fast food and its definatley not muscle i have gained. I feel and look terrible! Please help??
Avatar f tn i know its a bit abnormal for me and i have most fats on my thighs, waist and butt region and would like to know of any ways to reduce it. its really hard for me to shed weight as i have a very slow metabolism..
Avatar f tn I already feel a lot healthier and have seen some improvements in my body. I tend to carry my weight in my hips and upper thighs and I was just wondering if anyone has any good tips to work on these areas. Right now my routine is 45 min biking, then 30min weights and exercises (mostly abs and arms) and then 35 min jogging. I am up to try any new exercises that would help target my problem areas so any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
Avatar n tn Stand with your feet slightly wider than you hips and lower yourself into a squatting position with your thighs parallel to the floor. Your weight shifts to your heel as you lower your body, so that your knees don't bend too far forward past your toes. Keep that back straight and stabilized by the core muscles of your abdomen and lower back. Heels stay on the floor as you return to starting position and repeat. Try to do 15-20 repetitions.
1989179 tn?1332441058 So, I am due in 18 days! I'm young and this is my first child. Before pregnancy I weighed about 130, and at this point am weighing in around 180. Well I went shopping the other day because I wanted to get a couple things for this coming summer, but I felt dumb trying on 100 different sizes and still not knowing what to purchase.. it was really stressful! Before pregnancy I could fit into a size 3 with some brands but always a size 5.
7874959 tn?1395945321 Hello, I too live in the UK. I have arthritis in my spine and early arthritis in both my hips. At the moment I am in severe pain. Ibuprofen did not help me as it gave me an internal bleed. I refused spine injections, and I do not like taking strong painkillers. I take paracetamol and try to keep supple. I have always liked walking, but lately I cann ot even do that comfortably. Been crying today with the pain.
Avatar n tn You should get your body fat regularly tested along with taking measurements of your chest, waist, hips, arms and thighs. If you are losing inches, it is definitely a good indication. Even if you realize that you are gaining fat, there are certain options you can explore. You should closely monitor your calories intake. There should be balanced intake. Both too much and too little calorie intake can be counterproductive. Perhaps you should be maintaining a food chart for yourself.
Avatar n tn When one cuts down on calories, the body sends a signal to the brain which in turn turns on the ‘stress hormones’ and the body switches into the ‘starvation mode’ and paradoxically one may notice no change in weight or an increased weight. One would need adequate amount of calories to support the basic metabolic functions and if you work out vigorously, your required calorie intake rises.
Avatar m tn Stretch marks can appear anywhere on the body, especially in places where larger amounts of fat are stored such as the abdomen, breasts, upper arms, underarms, thighs (both inner and outer), hips, and buttocks. This includes the skin going to your groin but not your scrotum. No stretch marks will form as long as there is support within the dermis. Stretching plays more of a role in where the marks occur and in what direction they run.
Avatar f tn Depends on the woman body cause I still don't have *** ;(
Avatar f tn I have had exactly the same problem in the past and it has always been down to the fact that I have gone on special diets which, once I have reached my target weight, are not easy to sustain. This time, I have done it differently (I hope). I have modified my eating habits by cutting down my portion sizes. One of the first things I did was to change the size of the plate or bowl I used to serve my food. Instead of a dinner plate, I changed to a smaller plate.
Avatar f tn Glad I'm not alone was starting to get a little worried it's been killing me
Avatar f tn Hello, Stretch marks can appear when there is rapid stretching of the skin. It is common in rapid gaining or losing of weight, pregnancy, puberty, cushings syndrome and overuse of steroids. Creams containing alpha hydroxyl acids and retin-A are said to be useful in decreasing the stretch marks but the advertised antimarks creams have no proof of effectiveness. Eat healthy ,nutritious food ,drink plenty of fluids and do moderate exercises.
Avatar m tn The hormonal changes of menopause may make you more likely to gain weight around your abdomen, rather than your hips and thighs. Hormonal changes, genetic factors and lifestyle changes can contribute weigh gain. In addition, muscle mass naturally diminishes with age. During menopause, there is an increased tendency for body composition to shift to more fat and less muscle—which slows down the rate at which you burn calories.
1293887 tn?1332702847 Maybe we could encourage each other to exercise, share meal recipes and our weight loss. I have lost about 6 kilos in the last few months but am struggling with the last 7 or 8. I would love to get down to maybe 60-62 kilos. I don't know what that is in pounds.
Avatar f tn s also dark there to as well as in my inner thighs, behind my thighs, and on my butt. I used to be a little overweight so I know losing weight would help and Im losing weight but how can I get the darkness to go away? I don't want to use skin bleaching creams or anything. So anything I can buy from a store like cvs or something or home remedies?
