    Hi Guys,

    Has anyone got any ideas how best to loose weight from your legs??

    Im finding it really hard to, i've lost nearly 4 stone now and can fit into size 14 jeans but they have to be 'boot cut' or 'boyfriend' style cause i need the extra leg room! also, i was hoping by now i would be able to fit into normal knee high boots from a normal shop and not have to go to specialist shops like evans to get the extra wide leg ones which cost an absolute fortune. :sigh:

    I do allot of walking and some jogging but my calves are still pretty big... anyone any ideas??

    I know its hard to target any one area of your body to loose weight from but any suggestions would be great... :eek:

    Sometimes our legs can bulk up because we have built the muscle up in that area by exercising. I find the best form of exercise for my legs is swimming. I only go once or twice a week, i'm a rubbish swimmer and i only do on average 10 lengths when i go ( i know what your thinking - whats the point of going if you only do 10 lengths?) unfortunately i damaged my leg in a car crash so it just doesn't want to move when i swim and i also hold my breath as i have a fear of drowning. I'm weird i know lol even though i only go once a week and do 10 lengths, i always feel more energetic after and it is definitely making a difference in my legs. :)

    i'd be afraid of using the leg weights at the gym too cause i dont want to build up muscle on my legs, i want to reduce the size of them.. need to burn fat rather then tone up first.. thanks tho :)

    Swimming is the best form of exercise for me too at the moment and I do about 10-20 length once a week cos I'm rubbish at it and because it's my legs I have trouble with. In the water I don't feel the pain :)

    I've been going about a month and I can see a difference in my inner thighs- they're less flabby and even though my legs look wobbly still, there is definite muscle to be felt :) Hopefully I won't get bulky legs, I seem to get muscle too easily even when it is covered with fat.

    im doing zumba and leg extensions and squats at night. I was a dancer for years when young and have really big muscly legs. Am two sizes bigger on bottom than top! So thought if i go back to some sort of dance excerise it might get the tone back into them and hopefully reduce the inches
