Losing weight in legs and thighs

Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in legs and thighs


Avatar n tn Remember, if you do resistance training your thighs might not get any smaller, though they will get stronger and more toned. You could just have large thighs -- people come in all shapes and sizes -- but if it's in fact excess weight, then you have to look at what you're eating. I'd personally think that cardio would be best for losing weight, whereas weight training is best for turning fat into muscle, but proper nutrition is necessary for it to work optimally.
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 n tn You can't really "spot reduce", but general exercise and losing weight from the entire body will definitely help. Walking is good for both the abs and the legs, actually the entire body!! I've always had rather thick thighs also and I believe that walking does about as good as anything.
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.
Avatar f tn That has happened to me also; my biggest concern is losing my legs and my jeans are tighter around the calves and thighs. I would like to know how that's possible as well. I have lost 14lbs since Oct 1st but my legs are getting bigger.
Avatar f tn But after they pop, the area bruises and a little mole looking thing ends up there. In between my legs is all red and bruised and it hurts. I've researched everything. It's not an STD because I've never even kissed a guy let alone had sex. I'm very overweight and I am 16 years old.

Avatar m tn I am 23, and last few nights I have woken up mid morning with terrible aching upper legs/thighs and they have given me trouble throughout the day. I have changed nothing in my lifestyle and only exercise lightly twice a week. Anyone have any ideas or any advice?
Avatar m tn I have a lot of pain (especially when touched) in what seems to be the fatty tissue, especially in the upper legs (thighs) and the upper arms. I can also feel nodule underneath the skin (not sure if in fat of facia) and if these are pressed, the pain is tremendous, often radiating all over.

Avatar f tn t spot lose, losing weight all over will also help lose weight from your thighs. There are some exercises that will tone the muscles, so they will appear thinner. Try googling for thigh exercises and see what comes up.
Avatar f tn Yes I haven gained a whole lot - 4 lbs and I'm almost 16 weeks - but I absolutely hate gaining weight and I feel jiggly and gross. I exercise four days a week, one more day then I did before pregnancy but I have been eating things I would never normally eat. Everyone's like its ok you're suppose to gain weight!
Avatar m tn Exercises not only help in weight loss, but also tone the muscles and provide strength. Some of the weight loss exercises for girls are: Jogging Jogging is the simplest way of losing weight. It steadily burns the fats thereby reducing the weight. Jogging in the morning is regarded the best for weight loss as at at that time, the stomach is empty since long. The body has to burn the calories already stored to release energy. This results in faster weight loss.
Avatar f tn Please, help! What exercises can help in losing fat in any of my most weight-contributing body parts? Maybe anyone help please.
Avatar f tn anyone has any suggestions on how to tone the legs? And, can you give me some suggestions on how to lose weight and tone the body? Is there any food I shld stay away from, apart from sugar and maybe carbs? Thanks a lot!!
Avatar f tn t know where to post this) I am a plus size 22 year old female who is currently losing weight, and I have began to get this what start out like zits on my upper thighs mostly inner and upper legs and on my stomach. Which I pop (of course) I know I shouldn't and I try not to but they look horrible when their inflammed. But they are a dark purple under the whit head. Like a blood blister I sometimes get them on my vagina from shaving also but I do not shave my stomach or my upper legs.
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?
Avatar f tn I downloaded the apps "Daily Workouts free" and "Lose Weight Fitness and Workouts", those two apps have a ton of workouts for targeted areas or your whole body. They are also short videos so they show you how your body is supposed to be positioned. Daily Workouts also times you in intervals. Hope this helps if you're able to download apps. I also have the app "Fitness Buddy", but I haven't looked at it as much, that one looks more targeted towards men.
Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and having a difficult time losing weight. During the past 8-9 months, I have not been able to continue my typical exercise regimen due to knee pain and surgery. As a result, I have gained the nine pounds I lost and added 7 more.Approximately two weeks ago, I started to exercise again, managing to workout four days each week, although no change in weight. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn I'm about 206lbs and it's all in my inner thighs and stomach. I love Mt body but it's not healthy and at times I do get self conscious. I would like to right now just work on getting healthy and hopefully get down to 165 lbs. Does anyone have any ideas of things I should do. I'm so done hurting myself. I feel like crap for letting life get to me like this! Thank you!!
Avatar f tn Have you tried an exercise ball? I know there's many exercises that you can do on those for legs and thighs. Or maybe a bicycle?
495284 tn?1333894042 I had that creepy crawly skin thing going on. Legs arent as heavy today. The best part is getting up in the morning not in a fog even tho i feel awful. Oh i did try the steak thing and all i could do was suck the juice out but at least it was something. Still faithfully taking the vitamins. The sun is shining today so may go and sit on the back steps and suck up some sun. Havent seen much of that since last Sept.
Avatar f tn I'm 15+3. I've never had stretch marks in my life. All my pants still fit (except waist line) yet I've got stretch marks on the inside of my thighs and near my butt!
Avatar n tn Walking is some of the best exercise there is for toning legs and thighs. Yoga is also very good. Keep in mind that "nothing" works immediately, and if it does, the effects won't be long lasting, whereas exercise and building muscles will serve you all your life as long as you keep them strong.
362249 tn?1441315018 ) had a larger behind and have struggled losing weight in that area. With the changes in my diet (increase in veggies, lots of beans and legumes and healthy fats) it is really coming off that area - my husband too. Congratulations on doing so well!
