TheLadyA :  I’m 25 and don’t think I’ve worn shorts since high school (except to bed). I noticed during my 1st year teaching/grad school year that a hint of cellulite started to make it’s way beneath my ass/on my legs because I was too exhausted to work out regularly. Once I got back into my usual routine it has been a lot better, though not completely gone. If you do go to a gym, I recommend doing as many of the leg workouts as possible, especially if they work the hamstring and glutes at the same time. It seems to have whipped my legs back into shape for the most part. Life can be cruel…

TheLadyA :  Welcome to Cellulite City.  Population – ME!!

It is all I see when I look in the mirror, and I am pretty active as well.  I cannot remember WHEN I started noticing it, but I know I stopped wearing any and all shorts in my early 20’s, and bikini bathing suit bottoms (I buy the skirted only!).  People always ask me WHY I never really show my legs – as skirts/dresses go low to mid thigh, or right above the knee. My response – I hate my legs, because although toned, still show cellulite.  

It sucks!!  I, too have accepted my cellulite fate, and do not let it keep me down, meaning that the stronger I get, not seeing them disappear has not caused me to quit.  My sister told me that she saw a decline in hers when she maintained a ‘clean’ diet for 45 days.  But, we love our food, so it did not ‘stick’.  

I am envious of people that can rock cute summer shorts, and have nice, toned, non-lumpy legs though :/

TheLadyA :  I don’t have any advice I can give you but I just wanted to chime in and say that a comment my Dad made when I was 16 also made me self conscious about my thighs. I think the expression was “Look at those thighs!” (siad with a look of shock and horror on his face) ….thanks Dad lol. My cellulite only seems to appear when I’m sitting so I still wear shorts but always cover them with my jersey etc when I sit down.

I like Miss_Mae:‘s idea! Fake tan has definitely helped disguise my cellulite and made me feel more confident about my thighs.

I just embrace it. It’s just as much of a part of me as my scars or birth marks are. I’ve had cellulite since I was 12 so I think it’s just here to stay. Screw hiding in my bathing suit!

If people are appalled by my dimpled patch of skin on my thighs, then they’re staring awfully close, wouldn’t you think?

TheLadyA :  Oh wow… and I thought I was the only one….. I hate my celulite, and it is so recent too! I feel like I hit 25 and oh HELLO! 

I do keep myself nice and tan which helps it, but I feel very self conscious when I wear shorts. I was at a water park yesterday and I felt very uncomfortable for some reason. 

The Fiance loves my legs and butt so it isn’t the end of the world, I just wish I loved them as much as he does…..

TheLadyA :  Unfortunately, most women have cellulite. Even all of those tight-bodies models or celebrities that you see in magazines. They simply have it all airbrushed out. Even very skinny women have it. I am active, muscular and have a prettt low body fat percentage and I still can see cellulite in places. It’a def at it’s worst with water retention. So I try to drink tons of water, stay low sodium and away from refined sugar/carbs.

Getting body fat percentage down (if it’s moderate or high) and gaining lean muscle mass via diet and excercise will always improve your appearance… Especially cellulite. However, it won’t necessarily 100% rid you of it entirely. It’s comparable to stretch marks… Just one of the things we deal with as women. There are a few products that I have seen give friends of mine temporarily improvement… But, they are pretty costly options and have to be continuously done to maintain results. I’ve seen a few friends get awesome (albeit temporary!) results via the It Works! body wrap system and some have seen great results with Nerium lotions. I, personally, would rather live with my little bit of cellulite than to pour money into these products, but also realize many women are highly self conscious of all different things (myself included) and are willing to try anything.
