    Hello everyone, this may sound bizarre but I have very muscly calfs and legs and if I wanted to know if I carry on with the diet and lose all the weight I want will muscle come off my calfs and legs? the reason i ask this is because I tried on some skinny jeans of mine that havent fitted for a while and there fine on waist and everywhere but the bottom wont move up my calfs as there so muscly, it drives me insane! :confused:

    I have exactly the same problem! My calves are so big - they just don't want to seem to shift! I hope they will slim down eventually. My calves seem to be one big handful of muscle. I want slender legs :(

    Girls - there is hope! I had really large calves and no weight was shifting from them at all - then suddenly one day I decided to try the skinny jeans on again and they fit! it's like the weight dropped off my calves overnight..... Good luck. I'm sure it'll happen to you both too xx
