    Creams don't work. I noticed cellulite on my thighs and legs when I was 17 and 110lbs. (I'm 5'7"). Once I started lifting weights when I started doing figure competitions it went away (I was 33 and 122lbs and still had it). I generally weight train 3-4 days a week and do 45min cardio 7 days a week and I eat 6 small healthy meals a day and drink 1 - 1 1/2 gallons of water each day and have no problems. So it's definitely possible, however it takes a great deal of work and dedication.

      You can get rid of a lot of it. But it is hard. You have to drink tons of water and you have to really limit the crap you put into your body and do a lot of weight training. If you eat healthy and eat lots of protein you will see a significant change. If you do lots of plies, lunges, and squats with weights you will see a change. You can also try those treatments where they put a machine on your thighs and they break up the cellulite clumps. But that alone won't work. You have to do a combination of all these things.

        It is so hereditary. I have never had cellulite until I got pregnant. My legs are disgusting now....they are also super duper white, so I am planning on getting sme sun before Mexico in hopes of hiding some of it.


        My mom has always been super skinny (until she hit 50 a few years ago) and had loooong, skinny legs and still had it.

        Good luck and if you find anything that works, let us know!

          I've heard that caffeine intake can increase the liklihood of having cellulite or having a hard time getting rid of it.

            OMG! I drink Starbucks at least 2-3 times a week! Guess that's where mine is coming from. Plus I eat too much junk. Maybe I should join weight watchers? Humm, that could be my New Years Resolution...

However I don't work out that much anymore, and even when I do, it just never get's my legs to where they were. I've tried cream and everything so far hasn't worked. SO I'll be interested to see if people come up with a solution.

              BTW Edyta I fail to believe you as tiny as you are has a real problem, I bet no one else even notices. :-)
              O Tammy believe me I have tons of it and it's very noticable, I can't wear and skirts or dresses or the super tiny little shorts that so many people look awesome in and I WANT!!! lol that's it I'm fed up I'm giving it a month with intesive trainning and everything I've got and lets see what progress I make GRRRRRRRR

                So I've also been looking for ways to reduce cellulite. Diet, water and exercise do help a lot. However, I can tell you what's worked for me. I use the seedweed soap from Bliss in the morning, then I use the cellulite stimulator in circle motions for about a minute on each leg. Then I put on the fat girl slim. You can also make your own home recipe which is the sesame oil from Neutrogena combined with any kind of coffee. I have applied it in the shower and used it with the stimulator.

                  Good for you Edyta, let us know what works. I know I've been so embarassed to put on a suit this year because of my legs so my pasty white skin doesn't make it look any better either. I think a high cardo workout will help you alot, along with tons of water.

                  How is everything else going? We just don't see enough of you around here anymore, we miss you.

                    WOW sorry bout the vent lol

                    but i miss the forum so I'm trying to be on here more often but it's taking me a while to catch up on everything cause I've missed so much...everyones prego or has already had their baby and I remember some people just getting married and all...time flies

                      Edyta I do have some advice. Really the only way to totally get rid of the cellulite is by eating super "clean" meaning no processed foods, and a primarily plant based diet. Also, weighted squats (put a bar accross your back and touch your booty to a flat bench like you are about to sit down) and also deadlifst (take the straight bar and bend down from the waste like you are wearing a short skirt and picking up a pencil....that's how a trainer explained it to me..lol.....) Unfortunately cardio doesn't really take care of it by itself. The biggest factor is the clean eating. I cut out fake sugars, the partially hydroginated fats, and processed meals (soups/frozen dinners) and it made such a huge difference in my body. I was a splenda addict! Let me know if you need any other advice. I'm full of this useless info....or useful...depending on what you want to hear! Good luck....I hope you start feeling better and more relaxed..."this too shall pass"
