Would Spanx that concentrated on the thigh area help? I know my Spanx that targeted the stomach area really worked for me.

Spanx and running.  I hate running… every awful second of it, but it will slim thighs quicklike.

Edit: Your dress is gorgeous 🙂

Unfortunately, you really can’t target weight loss to any specific area. But as the PPs said… Spanx?

@beachchicbride:   You can’t really spot reduce like that, and I’d be careful with biking. Those little hills add up and could add muscle, which eventually slims the thighs, but not in 8 weeks.

@beachchicbride:  Hi sweetie, as others have said, it’s impossible to spot reduce in one area.  Your best bet is going to be to do some intense cardio intervals.  Here is what I recommend:

On a treadmill or running outside:

Step 1 – Minutes 1-5: Jog to warm up

Step 2 – Minutes 5-6: sprint as fast as you can

Step 3 – Minutes 6-8: Jog slowly to recover

Step 4 – Repeat Steps 2-3 5 times

Interval training is the BEST as losing weight.  To tone your thighs, I would also recommend doing lunges and squats and butt lifts (where you are face down on all 4’s and you raise your leg up in the air, hence lifting your butt)

You can’t target weight loss, but squats and lunges will help speed up toning in your thighs.  And a spanx will help, too! 

Your dress looks gorgeous!

HIIT will help you loose fat quick overall, but unfortunately as other bees have said, you cannot target an area when it comes to fat loss.

Keep on doing what you’re doing. If the dress was tight in your thights before it probably means that you’re losing weight faster on top than on the bottom, eventually it will catch up in your lower body. I lose weight the opposite, my legs and hips slim down first followed by my arms and then my midsection. Keep on doing cardio and don’t be afraid to add some weight resistence, small weights with multiple reps. Also, kickboxing inspired workouts with lots of kicks is great for legs, as is running. Plus diet is important, cut out sugar and processed starches- increase protein and try to keep your diet clean. Lots of water. Spanx can probably shave an inch or more if needed, Your dress is beautiful!
