Why do I have fat thighs when my body is skinny?
Asked by meow_x on Dec 01, 2008 in Weight Maintenance



If the rest of my body is skinny but my thighs are fat, does that mean I will never lose weight on my thighs? I have skinny arms, stomach and legs up to the knee, but then my thighs are big. I'm only fourteen and I don't deserve big thighs!  Is it possible for me to lose weight on my thighs? How?  Please don't say I can't lose weight on them!


Answer

Like 20% of all females, you are pear-shaped.  Pear-shaped girls have slim waists, flat stomachs, and are 2” smaller at the bust than at the hip.  Pear-shaped celebrities include Jennifer Lopez, Claire Danes and Keira Knightly. You can look great with a pear-shape if you maintain your weight in the healthy range and do low-intensity aerobic exercise that targets the lower body.  Jogging, skating, stair climbing and dancing will help to keep you toned.  Also dress to flatter a pear-shaped figure and, above all, learn to love the body you were given.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
