Just a quick tip, if you are wondering if it is just a dominant leg thing and are unsure which leg is dominant. Have somebody you know push you from behind when you are just standing there. Have them try to do it when you are not paying attention. Your dominant leg should be the one that goes forward first, to catch you. I learned this in track. I used to do the triple jump.

I have the same problem and I hate it. My right thigh is bigger than my left. I saw an specialist (Doctor), he said is fat and the only way is liposuction, but I don't want to do lipo, so I don't know how to fix it?

I used to have that problem. It happened to me because when I started playing hockey, I could only do crossovers in one direction and that my right leg a lot more muscular than my left. Before that, I never really bothered putting too much effort into doing crossovers the other direction, but once I noticed, I made myself at least be able to do them, and now, I make sure that anytime I'm on the ice, I give my weak side at least a little workout. At first, I'd go out there and pretty much skate in circles for an hour on the one side and that helped out.

I have the same problem. I can't even stand to wear jeans anymore because my right leg is so much fatter than my left. It is noticeable. I've always had this problem, but I thought that after losing weight it would go away. I lost 50 lbs and it was even more noticeable. My right leg is larger at the calf and the thigh. If anyone has any solutions, I'd love to hear 'em.

We have a dominate arm and leg, make the weaker one work harder than the strong side and even the difference up weight training..
Legs can be like being right and left handed.. Don't give in working the weak leg less than the dominate side..

Yes my right thigh is bigger than the left side. I noticed it about a year ago. It is considerably noticeable. I can also feel a small lump of fat on top of my thigh. I hope that it goes down with the weight loss.

Thanks for all the feedback! I def understand no one is symmetrical ... this kind of goes past that tho as it bugs me and is so uncomfortable on a daily basis and is so discouraging to my weight loss goals. I appreciate the feedback and anymore to come :)

It's normal.

I don't know anyone that is perfectly symmetrical.

One arm bigger, one boob bigger, calf whatever...perfectly normal to have one side bigger than the other.
Even when losing fat you'll find one side losing more/less than the other.

My right thigh is bigger than the other definitely. I can tell when I wear pants that my right side is "tighter" on my thigh than the left.

No idea why this is but there is no way to really fix it other than plastic surgery on that one leg in which it might actually make the bigger leg smaller than the other leg. I just accept it.

Hi ABurton,
I don't have a fix-it answer for you. I'm just writing to comment on how my body is definitely different from the left to the right side. I'm a lefty and favor one side more! Good luck with your challenge and don't give up! emoticon

I have that problem, but mine is because I drive a manual car with a heavy clutch lol. My left thigh is lookin' pretty decent, but my right still has about an inch more fat on it. You might could do some extra leg exercises on the leg that needs a little more work. Maybe one legged squats?

Does anyone have the problem of one thigh slimming down quicker than the other? My left thigh has become slimmer quicker than my right and it is extremely noticeable to me when I wear jeans or any other pants. I know its not a case of one muscle being bigger than the other because I can visibly see the extra fat on my right side.

Has anyone had this problem and taking steps to successful fix it? Feedback welcome please!!

Thanks!!
