As PAPAMIKIE said, you can't spot-reduce. Some people carry their weight on their stomachs, or their butts, or their chests...and no particular exercise or specific food will change their genetic propensity for losing/gaining weight in those areas.

A balanced diet and regular cardio (or even creating a deficit without cardio, but that's not recommended at all) will cause you to lose weight. You might lose weight in your stomach first and your thighs last, or your butt first and your chest last. There's no way to know because everyone's body is different.

Unfortunately, the areas where we gain weight most easily also tend to be the areas where our bodies "cling" most tenaciously to the excess fat. So, if you gained your weight first in your thighs, it will probably come off there last. But if you stick to the caloric deficit and get regular exercise, you'll see results in time.

weight loss is not selective, you can not target a part of the body. You loose weight all over, and you loose it in your own particular way. Pictures of someone else may not be very representative of what will happen in your body if you loose the same amount of weight.

You can tone up specific parts of the body by working the muscle in a given area, but I am not sure that is what you are looking for.

you never need surgery for weight loss, first off. Second off, p90x's ab ripper works your inner thighs as well as your abs.

You will feel this workout the next day so I suggest you make it an every other day thing or maybe even once every three days because its killer.

Okay so I need to lose 20 pounds. Or better yet I am going to lose 20 pounds but here is my question..

I have inner thighs that go on for miles... If I lose this 20 pounds will those go away? Or is this something I am going to have to have surgey to get rid of??

Another Question... Anyone had bad inner thighs lost weight and they are way smaller??

I wish I could see myself 20-25 pounds lighter and see what I am going to look like.. So anyone that reads this if your 5"4 and was around 150-160 and lost about 30 pounds and have pics on your sparkpage please let me know so I can check them out!!

Thanks a million!!!
