im a 15 year old girl, 5 5 , about 150 lbs. I'm active in dance for 5 hours a week and chleereading for 8 hours a week. I have been struggling to lose weight for about 2 years. I know im not fat, but i have a lot of room to lose. i have tried weight watchers and since i have such a busy life with school and more different activities, i cant seem to stay on track. i have changed my diet that consits of whole wheat grains opposed to white, only egg whites opposed to the whole etc. i feel if i really work on my diet the weight will come off quicker. I have fairly large thighs, which is where all my weight goes to, i know i cant spot reduce but is there anyway that is effective to slim down (NOT BULK UP) my legs? and my big legs is genetic so it wont just come off like regular people. i was thinking if i run about 35 min on a treadmill with no incline they will slim down in about a month. also i have noticed i started gaining my weight in my lower stomach and i have a pouch if i run, what else can i do for my lower abs? i do 400 crunches a night at dance and that helps my upper abs but i need something that wont take too long and doesnt require any machines, to specifccally tone that area. (as well as lose the fat) like i have tried reverse crunches but i have trouble doing them by knowing if i do it right so i need something better. thanks so much!
