    That is where I am right now. I have really good lookin parts and those I wish i know a great plastic surgeon.

    I have been doing weights and more sculpting routines. it is helping!!!

    keep it up. you'll get there
    This is EXACTLY what's happening to me. My shoes got a little loose. And my calves looked smoother. The my knees were changing (still are) and the lower half of thigh is slimming. Now the upper half is sloooowly moving out.

    Someone posted this on another thread, but seeing her before picture (thighs) really gave me hope because I'm also a pear shape. i think that heavy lifting and high intensity is key (crossfit)

    couch to 5k cut 10 inches off of each thigh for me, and now I have Olympic sprinter-worthy looking thighs (massive, but defined). I guess it really boils down to hammering those once a week all out sprints

    I try to remember what my husband told me when I complained that I have bigger thighs that make me look heavier than the girls that carry on different parts of their body in the same BF% category. He told me: "You saying as if it were a bad thing." And he gave my thighs a lustfull
    look.
    ^ This!

    Not all of us are going to be perfectly proportioned. My measurements are 34-26-35.5, but I am always going to have a proud and pert A-cup. No surgery for me--and my husband wouldn't have them any other way, lol!

What I am doing now is trying to build up muscule so my upper body and my thunderous thighs do not look like they belong on 2 different women. The most infuriating thing is that the muscule that grows the fastest on me is the quad too (this spring for the first time ever I felt a pant too tight abovethe knee over the quad). I am doing IF, and heavy lifting. Eventually, one of 2 things happen. My quads become so big that fat pouch stop being so pronounced. Or fat will get dislodged. Or I will get so fed up with it that I go for a surgery. Unfortunatelt thigh fat is more difficult to move than the belly fat.

    So, I try to IF, eat primal, lift weights, go to steam room, do my HIIT and I try to remember what my husband told me when I complained that I have bigger thighs that make me look heavier than the girls that carry on different parts of their body in the same BF% category. He told me: "You saying as if it were a bad thing." And he gave my thighs a lustfull look.
    HeHe. Yea, I understand. I have to judge my pant size based on my thigh size. The waist in the pants are always too big that they bunch, but the thighs are always stretched out! Grrrrr

    I understand I'm prolly not going to have swim suit model legs.. but I can still see the fat! I can't tell where the muscle ends and the fat begins. LOL

    Site specific training won't work you have to loose body fat and your thighs will start to loose the fat.

    If you really want to get into the biochemistry of losing fat, I HIGHLY recommend The Stubborn Fat Solution by Lyle McDonald...

    The Stubborn Fat Solution by Lyle McDonald | BodyRecomposition - The Home of Lyle McDonald

    He provides information on why some fat is harder to lose than other fat as well as multiple plans for targeting that 'stubborn fat'

    Once again...Very Highly Recommended!
