Hi, Julia here, and welcome to How to Lose weight in your thighs blog.
Thought I’d share my *uncensored* story on how i lose fat in thighs with you all:
The ups, the downs, all the methods I tried – what didn’t work and finally the one solution that did…
My story of when I first wanted wanted to lose thigh fat fast…
I’ve battled with bodyweight since giving birth to my third child, Steven early last year.
However, It was not until few months ago, that I really wanted to lose leg fat fast. After the third child, the weight just doesn’t want to come off. That stubborn thigh fat made it hard to look in the mirror and not cringe. I joined the aerobic classes and spin classes at the gym and managed to get my weight down a little.
The stubborn thigh fat, however remained.
I tried a whole lot of different workout regimes to get rid of fat thighs but nothing seemed to work. I seemed to have outer and inner thigh fat as if they were gift I can’t part from. I also searched a lot over the net on how to lose weight in your thighs and found most of info were scammy and useless. I continue to do the cardio program ( mostly running and spin classes)
But that was not a good idea, I was spending way too much time in the gym. Also my legs were becoming very bulky and hard instead of slim and thin. Tried it and hated it. Instead I wanted to do something that was attainable, good looking and natural. Plus, i’d rather be spending more time with my family, then spending hours at the gym.
I tried those supplements and pills. Different types of Cellulite cream too. Anyway, once again no results.
I tried extreme and fast weight loss diets too. And believe it or not, they did work… kind of. You see, one of the main things preventing women from having thinner thighs are the three layers of fat over your thigh muscles. No matter how skinny you are you probably still have a layer or two covering the thighs. Anyway, so the extreme diets did help to remove the fat a little.
But the diets were too much for me. I can’t eat the same crappy food all day every day, not only to get on in the first place but in order to maintain the thinner thighs you have to keep doing it. As soon, as I stopped
the diet I began to balloon up again. Something has to be done.
Anyway, I gave my “lose thigh fat quest” up for a while, convinced that it was not attainable. Until one day when I met my brother’s girlfriend Jane. Jane happened to be visiting Austin, where I live now, on a business trip. We had a time to meet up for coffee and it was then, that I found out, how fabulous she looked in her short skirt.
I mean, last time I saw her she had thighs like mine too. I knew I had to ask! She shared with me a fitness program that she follows.
It was called the Lower Body Makeover program and was created by a guy called Joey Atlas. After researching the program and the guy who created it, I found out that this guy was pretty clued up about what works and what doesn’t. I was desperate to get rid of my thigh fat, so I purchased the Lower Body makeover program. Of course at first I had my doubts, but I decided to give it a try. The program is for 10 weeks, but truth be told,
I loved my results after just 5! Well before my Christmas goal.
It targets the trouble areas, thighs, hips, legs and butt. It actually worked! This program concentrates on decreasing thigh fat and cellulite. No more bulky legs and loose thighs! I would work out for 10 minutes plus a 5 minute warm up on my busy days. For a regular day, it was 20 minutes of exercise Seeing as the results were so good, I referred my friends. The routines can be customized to fit any schedule and don’t require any exercise equipment. They are all done using your own bodyweight!
There are a few things to keep in mind, however. There is a need for dedication. Also, there are dietary restrictions, but nothing as extreme as what I had done before. This is not just some diet thrown together and it is not about starving yourself. It is about certain foods which are missing from most people’s diets, and foods that you really need to start eating. Having motivation is important too, for me it was losing the extra thigh weight before Christmas. That being said, this program was just what I was looking for!
So if you’re looking for a way to lose weight in your thighs fast, then I recommend you too check out the Lower Body Makeover program. I mean, it worked wonders for me.

Thanks for reading,
The lower body problem areas can be very depressing, especially the stubborn thigh fat, lumpy cellulite and unshapely derrière. Every woman wants to know how to get thinner thighs and the secret to getting firm tight butt. So, if you want to know how to lose weight in your thighs, as I mentioned before, a proper and targeted workout regime is the key to achieve your goals. Simply going out and doing some “cardio” workout is not going to cut it anymore.
Let’s face it ladies, with little time (and patience) that we have, ‘thanks’ to our hectic schedule, it is important to find the best combination of exercise that targets our specific problem i.e stubborn thigh fat; and also saves time, space and money i.e. without costly gym membership or investment in bulky exercise equipment.
The exercise described below, are synergistic (involves different muscle group in lower body areas) and are all bodyweight exercises. They will thoroughly work and stimulate the thigh zones, butt and legs. These exercises can be done as solo-routine, or can be combined with other weight loss exercises.
You can even do this exercise at home or in your office at various times throughout the day
The only equipment you will need is an exercise ball (size 55cm-65cm). If you can’t find it, in your local fitness store, you can order online from Amazon.
Yoga mat is an option.
Try to do each exercise to a count of 5 (up to 15) before moving on to the next exercise. Once you complete all four, you can take 30-60secs break and repeat all four again. You can repeat as many times as you wish, but start slow and easy. Get used to the intensity before adding any new repetition or set.
Here they are…
1. For back of thighs and butt
Step1 – Lying down on a mat or soft surface, facing up – place your heels and calves on top the exercise ball. Arms on the ground at your sides.
Step2 – Lift your hips off the ground by pushing your heels and calves into the ball. This is your starting position. Your shoulder, hip, butt, thighs, heel should be in one line.
Step3 – Then curl your heels in toward your hamstrings (back of thighs), while pushing your hips toward the sky. Stop when the bottoms of your feet are on top of the ball. Do not let the butt sag towards the floor, and keep the core tight. Hold for few counts.
Step4 – Then slowly return to starting position and repeat.
2. For front of thighs
Step1 – Get onto your hands and knees – on an exercise mat or soft surface.
Step2 – Bring your toes forward. Then slowly lift your knees off the ground and get your glutes up toward the sky – so your legs are almost fully straightened. Heels off the ground and weight fully on ball of foot.
Step3 – Then slowly return to the start position – lightly touching your knees to the ground.
3. For glutes, low and mid-back
Step1 – Lying down face-up. Bend your knees and point your toes upward – so your heels are the only part of your feet touching the floor or mat.
Step2 – Push your heels into the ground and lift your hips toward the sky. Give a slight pause at the top.
Step 3 – Then slowly lower your hips to touch the mat. Breath out on the way up (as you exert) and breath in on the way down (as you relax)
4. For the whole lower body
Step 1- Place the exercise ball against a wall and then lean against it with your lower back area.
Step2 – With your feet shoulder width apart – slowly squat down as the ball rolls up toward your upper back/shoulder blade area. Pause for a second or two
Step3 – then slowly return to the top position, keeping a slight bend in the knees at the top. Breathe in going down – breath out going up

Once you get this down and practice these exercises regularly, you’ll be well on your way to showing off slim thighs and a tighter, sexier butt! No more loose thighs!
Women, in general will find it hard…very very hard to lose fat from their thigh & butt. Men on the other hand struggle to get rid of the fat from their belly. So if you are wondering on how to lose weight in your thighs and why you are still having difficulty with that stubborn thigh fat and cellulite, you are not alone. These gender specific area issues are due to biological factors. The bad news is that this biological process can not be changed. The good news; however we women, do have the access to the information that will cure our problem.
The internet however is loaded with useless and scammy information. The “rumors” are centered on fat and cellulite treatments which are supposed to cure with zero effort. Some of the most popular so-called “magical” solutions are like cellulite cream, fat shrinking body wraps, and meal replacement diet drinks. Please ladies, don’t fall for all these. I know I did…and I spent a lot of money to find the cure.The vast majority of these types of solutions out there does nothing to lose thigh fat and is only designed to mask the symptoms. A good and workable solutions are however, the most simplest and primitive ones, and will eradicate the actual causes.
The root causes of cellulite and inner thigh fat, however, are not what many people think…
First of all, Cellulite and this extra weight of thigh fat are NOT special kind of fat. These are the same type of fat women have on all other areas. We tend to get the additional appearance at the lower body simply because we have three layers of fat in these areas (instead of just one). When the fat cells start becoming larger, they begin protruding through the collagen and become the bumpy fat known as cellulite
The second cause is our lower body parts like the thigh and butt area (getting a little scientific here, please bear with me), stores more alpha receptors vs. beta receptors (to the tune of 9 to 1). These adrenergic Receptors and their functions are as follows:
Alpha receptors = when stimulated will cause fat cells to produce fat (as well as triggering constriction of blood vessels and release of sugar into the bloodstream)
Beta receptors = when stimulated they break down fat (as well as increasing heart rate and relaxing blood vessels)
You can view the receptors as the structure of human cell that binds with specific molecules/bio-chemical agent in our body to control certain functions, like described above.
So, how to lose weight in your thighs and get rid of the ugly cellulite? We need to do these three things:
1) We have to work our way through three layers of fat,
2) Stimulate the Beta receptors
3) Inhibit the Alpha receptors.
The good news is all three can be achieved by optimizing our nutrition intake & performing specific type of workouts that targets the lower body (versus generic weight loss exercises). I will be posting more on how to get thinner thighs with these methods. Stay tuned!
