@HereWeGo:  I know this is not really useful advice, but truly, try not to let it bother you.  We can all relate.  I know VERY FEW women, even the fittest and most toned women, who don’t have some dimples on their thighs.  It just goes with being a woman for most of us.

The only tip I have is this…  I know you said you practice yoga, but do you do hot yoga?  The cellulite on my legs has really minimized since I started practicing hot Vinyasa yoga (in addition to doing cardio and weights, which never helped my cellulite before the addition of yoga to my routine).  I will never be 100% cellulite-free, but it’s lessened A LOT over the past year of doing hot yoga several times a week.

I am also a thin girl. I’ve noticed if I don’t do weight machines regularly my thighs will also look soft and squishy. I don’t have cellulite or anything but they definitely get jiggly if I’m not working out. Running is cardio. Have you tried squats, lunges, any weight equipment? After taking a few year break from regular workouts I got my whole body toned with no jiggle in less than a month. Chances are you’re the only one who even notices it though.

I’m kind of panicking about the state of my jiggle and being almost exactly one month out from the wedding. I LOVE vinyasa, I really need to find a place by my new house, I really miss the old one but its too inconvenient now. I think the scariest thing for me dimple wise is that my moms are horrible. I’m afraid to have those thighs at her age! But I also take a lot better care of my body exercise wise right now than she has over her life span so hopefully i can keep those pesky things at bay 😉

Are you on the pill?

I developed cellulite when I got on the pill.  Went off it, cellulite went away. 

What has really helped for me too is running.  You might be on the right track.  I started out running about 10 miles per week and am now running between 25-50 miles per week as I am training for a marathon.   Idk- I’m not a big believer that you need a lot of weight training to be toned- reduced body fat will go a long way, and repeated weight bearing exercise will build muscle.  I also like Bikram yoga.  I really think its effective and helps a lot.  Some people don’t buy the whole flush toxins out/get rid of cellulite thing, but I’m convinced. Works for me.
