OMG, I’m in the same boat as you.  I feel as though everything I eat goes to my thighs…I’ve been walking everywhere in an effort to thin out my legs.  I’m about 5’3 and have a small weist and thick legs.  I’m hoping that my daily 6 mile walk  will do something to thin my lower body out.  Goodluck!!!

Don’t worry, I’m in the same boat except I’m even shorter. My hips and thighs are enormous compared to my waist and bust. I’m going gangbusters right now though since I only have seven weeks till the wedding. (And eight till the honeymoon when it really matters). I just want to be a happy weight on my wedding day so I can think back happily when I compare.

I don’t think non-cardio exercise is going to make my thighs any bigger, though most of my strength training is focused on my wiggly arms. They’re the only part I’m really worried about on my wedding day. I need to learn how to pose with my arms away from my body so they don’t look so massive.

Have you had your leg fat measured? I know that sounds weird, but some women have some muscular legs naturally and don’t have much fat to burn off. So you can run and run and run, and it’ll never budget.

Get measurements though. Same spot every time. That’ll tell you if your legs are slimming down.

You could always try adding some other stuff to your regimen, too. I dunno, i’ve seen runners with really long slender legs and I’ve seen girls with larger thighs, like soccer players. They just look like athletes! But i never think it’s a bad thing! Just make sure your goal is actually feasible.

Here is something to make you feel better. Last night the boy and I started a new exercise plan and I took our measurements.’

I am 5’0, 104 pounds and my thigh measured 19.25 inches

The boy is 6’4, 203 pounds and his thigh measured 22 inches

He is almost a foot and a half taller than me, weighs 100 pounds more and our thighs are almost the same size. Sight :/

I mean this in the most positive of ways, but running may not make your legs thinner.  It makes my legs get bigger – solid, but bigger.  And I’m way shorter than you.  There are days when I don’t like it – particularly sitting down when you can’t really tell that my thights are like 90% muscle.  Meep!  But I get such a rush from working out, and now that I play ultimate frisbee and collide into large men all the time (because I am a spaz), having a very solid base is pretty helpful.

Yes, exercise and healthy eating may slim you down some.  But we all have our genetic body shapes and there’s not much you can do outside of that, barring in some cases surgery.  Maybe you’ll slim down some, but if you don’t, your thighs can hang out with mine.  And also my excessively long torso and all those other weird things that I am learning to deal with.

I agree with Entangled that you probably won’t see dramatic changes but exercise and diet might help to get it under better control.  My thighs are my worst body part too so you aren’t alone.

You really should add some strength training in. It’s not going to add bulk unless you start taking steroids.

I would try other cardio along with just running.  That will help with fat burning.  I’m not saying that you can’t see changes but I just don’t want you to feel too down if you don’t get to having stick thighs!

I have a thigh problem too. I have been measuring myself for over 6 months and have only lost ONE INCH! Let me know when you find a solution.
