    I had a bit of....uh, texture, on the backs of my thighs, but since I started lifting heavy it's gone bye bye for the most part.

    morebeans had an awesome thread a while ago showing pictures of very fit women with cellulite, many who are top athletes. if i can find it i'll post it.

    cellulite is genetic and doesnt really care is you're at your goal weight or not, so dont be bummed.

    I think that was posted in a group. Maybe even a private group. And I don't think it's active anymore.

    Yeah it was.

    There is this:

    Which I'm a little torn about, honestly, because the amount of cellulite she's showing is much less than what I have.

    What a great link! Thanks! :drinker:

    I had cellulte (thighs/butt) from a young age. When I was 12, 112 lbs. at 5' 2 1/2," I noticed in gym class that my thighs didn't look like the other girls' thighs. And at age 14, at 106 lbs., photos snapped of me from a good distance away clearly showed my cellulite visible through a leotard and tights. And because I had cellulite so young, I never associated it with aging/deterioration and it never bothered me to have it. In my late 40s, when I was premenopausal, most of my cellulite went away. So therefore I believe cellulite is fat deposits under the influence of female hormones our bodies produce during childbearing years.

    I do too. Since losing a bit of weight though, and lifting & running, it's still there but it has definitely gotten a lot better!

    I'm only 20, have never been overweight and infact quite a low weight but have cellulite on the backs of my thighs. I used to make myself miserable worrying about it, found out my friends all have it too and that my bf really doesn't give a hoot!! I truly don't care anymore. It's life. :glasses:
