Inner thigh fat

scshelbyscshelby Posts: 4Member Member Posts: 4Member Member
Hey! I’m looking to slim down my Inner thighs. I’m a track and cross country runner and I’m about the biggest on my team, 5’5 and 127 pounds I’m trying to slim up and lose fat so I can go faster considering I’m on the slower side. And I know that with less fat and more muscle power and such I can go faster. (Also coming off of an injury) but I’ve gone from 145-126 this semester and My inner thighs are still on the thicker side than I would like. So I’m just reaching out to see what others have done and what I can do and if anyone has any before or after pics that would be great! kf0lwf2hm0lv.jpeg

    If getting faster is your goal ask your coach about speedwork (if you're not already doing it) fun things like running hills, fartleks, running stairs etc etc etc and, as has been previously mentioned, add some strength work into your routine.

    I’m a collegiate runner so I’m doing these runs already. I have illiopsoas bursitis and a pelvic tilt

    Your fat inner thighs are probably muscular.

    Speaking as someone who grew up doing a keg intensive sport it's tough learning your legs are muscular and a beautiful feature. I grew up never being able to wear straight leg jeans because of my big skater thighs. I can still look down at them and see the jiggle but there's no fat there.

    So just embrace your beautiful muscular, fit thighs. They'll certainly help your running.

    There’s a few issues here performance and appearance related.

    Women are genetically predisposed to carry weight on their hips and thighs and bellies.

    Picking on a body part and focussing on it is not helpful to good mental health. Your perspective is distorted. Everyone else here including me sees a really nice pair of legs. And you can run fast too, way to go.

    Comparing yourself to others is also unhelpful.

    You are already lean. Losing weight may make you run faster and it may make your thighs slimmer. But it may not. And you may still not be happy. Happiness is the most important thing.

    Can you talk to a counsellor/ therapist about your body issues?
