[quote="anna2239"]I have seriously massive thighs - they are about 23" at their widest, but my waist is only 26.5"-27" now.
I'd like my thighs to be a bit smaller (I especially want them to stop rubbing together). Can I achieve this through toning them with yoga/pilates etc.? I know that you can't spot reduce, but my friends appear to think that my thighs are big because I need to tone them.
Or am I right in thinking that you can make your stomach smaller by toning it, but my thighs will just get bigger if I exercise them more? And the only option is to lose weight?
(My current exercise regime is just running 2-3 times per week, which I started a couple of months ago, and a lot of walking - I think I need to do a wider range of exercise anyway).
Why not try weight loss pills too? They are just as useless.
FFS. If your thighs are that huge you have serious life problems, you need serious changes in your life, not yoga and pilates.
FORBIDDEN: coffee, drugs, smoking, alcohol, junkfood, sittin on your arse all day.
DO: swim, sweat, swim, sweat, swim, sweat, swim, sweat.
Swimming is so much better than running. Sweating is so much better than just walking. Be creative with your sweating: after an hour of constant swimming, take a nap in scorching heat (free tan FTW!); take command and take it to the limit while having sex; go to the sauna; go to an asian monsoon country, whatever
EAT: VEGETABLES AND NUTS. Fruit is allowed before training. Eat lots. NO CHEATING!! VEGETABLES AND NUTS!!
DRINK: TEA AND WATER. AND NOTHING ELSE!
Supplement: omega 3, minerals, b12, protein powder (if not eating plenty nuts)
RUNNING: only heart attack, aka HIIT running (tabata, fartlek, whatever you call it). Dont stop until you puke.
By all means do some yoga and pilates with all this. Whatever makes you feel great. But do the above until you achieve desired results no matter how trashed, sad, bad or mad they make you feel.
It's a 6 month investment in your body that you will appreciate for the rest of your life. Your call.
