    i can't believe i'm desperate enough to appeal on ukl for help, but i've been eating far too much cream cheese/fatty stuff recently, and i now have chunky rugby thighs....*quiet, Everdawn *
    which is all cool, but it's getting a bit OTT, as i'm going to have wear baggy trousers for the rest of my life if i'm not careful. any ideas what i can do to trim them down to something more respectable?


    thanks (rep available as usual).

    step 1 - join a gym
    step 2- actually go to it (and not just for a jacuzzi)

    Go swimming and do lots of cycling - best general forms of exercise and are great for the legs

    You could try running or cycling, I hear that's pretty good for your legs Or you go down to the gym and pump some iron Rocky style- that might tone them up a bit

    I've joined... I'm just using the swimming pool at the moment - the gym bit scares me lol

    In all fairness though, I am actually *swimming* lol

    walk to college/uni

    use stairs instead of lift

    break your remote control so you have to get up to change the channel

    stop eating the creamy cakes

    stop drinking fizzy drinks

    if you go gym, use treadmill, stair stepper, rowing machine. dont use leg weights as this wont make you thighs smaller it will just make them muscular

    cycling seems a good idea... i quite like that, compared to running. some pretty good cycle paths around as well.

    and i'm afraid to cause an occurrence rarely seen in England - an earthquake if i do too much hopping

    but lots of good ideas, thanks ppl!

    i used a gym on holiday last summer and got my muscles sorted (as well as clearing excess fat)
    gym's are a bit expensive around here, i'm *thinking* of waiting 3 more weeks then joining my uni gym on a student discount, if there is one available.

    i'm gratified by ur last point tho

    If you do decide to go cycling - please wear a helmet, I saw the most horrible head injury the other day when some guy came off his bike. Urgh <shudders remembering>

    do the cycling at night when everyone is asleep, you will feel more confident.

    also dance to music, and when noone is in the house run up and down the stairs.

    lmao - to run after them I'd need kneecaps, something I'm not likely to have if someone round here decides that they wanted my bike with me still on it.
