It didn't appear, you've just lost enough overall fat now to make it show. ;) You're not doing anything "wrong", because the cellulite was already there!

You can't spot-reduce fat, and cellulite isn't a special kind of fat. It's one of those things you kinda have to learn to live with. Keep losing weight, and hopefully, eventually it will look better. Keep strength training, as better muscle quality improves.

Yeah, cellulite has nothing to do with weight loss, and you can't really do anything about it.

It may go away though as you continue losing! :) Keep it up!

You're not doing anything wrong at all. Unfortunately you can't really make the cellulite go away. Everyone, even super skinny people can have cellulite. Here's an article from SP that may help you.

I have been working out for over 2 yrs, trying to lose more than 150 lbs
( a very looooonnnnggg slow process)!!
I have noticed that my legs went from a more smoother look to in the past month or so more dimply Cellulite look.
I have been trying to add more wall squats and other upper leg strength training during this time.
Is this normal with toning and working out? It looks so gross. What can i do to lessen the look?
I work out 7 days a week, should i amp up more cardio or more strength?
I generally do monday /wed/ friday treadmill and strength for about 1 1/2 hrs .
Tues and Thursday 90 minutes of water aerobics.
Fri 30min treadmill.
Sat treadmill and strength for 1 1/2 hrs followed by 45 water aerobics.
Sunday Zumba for 1 hr.
