Leg and Bum progress pics please :-)

hollie5by5hollie5by5 Member Posts: 29 Member Member Posts: 29 Member
Morning.. My top half of my body seems to be taking shape but I've had no progress on the bottom half yet.. I know it will eventually happen but it can be disheartening when you don't see it..

Do you have any progress pics of legs and time scales that it took??

Thanks :-)

    I didn't take many pics during my journey. I did loose 40 lbs and it came off disproportionately. I'm a pear shape before and still one today. Although there's less of me the bottom half still needs work while top looks scrawny. I'm trying to shift to more of a tone and build muscle workout in the hopes that helps.

    Good luck and just keep on going, you will see results. It helped me to take measurements. Often you're shrinking but we just don't see it until you see the proof in numbers.

    Do lower body exercise like squats and lunges

    You look fab, did you lose most of the 30lbs whilst doing insanity? X

    Most of it had come off over the space of a year previously but I still looked very bottom heavy, the insanity finally shifted some of the fat of that area as I didn't feel I could eat less at that point so just created a deficit with exercise. It's herd work when you are a pear but it will happen eventually. I should say too that 14lb are back on now (the after photo was taken in 2013), I am still doing Insanity about three times a week so even though I am wider/fatter my bum and legs have still got a better shape than before the exercise.

    I think your legs were made to be powerhouses! Keep it up girlie, are you doing any heavy lifting?

    I was, but my local gym has changed it's opening hours so it's not possible for me to attend during the week. I do mess about with a kettlebell every now and then and I love love love squats!!!

    Ah that stinks. You are progressing so well, everyone holds on to weight in different places (mine is my face and gut ha!) it will come, keep up the great work! Either way, you are beautiful!

    I hold most my weight in my legs as well. I can't tell much of a difference after 12 weeks lifting from the front, but when I look at before/after pics from the side I see an overall shrinkage. Same shape, just smaller.

    I also would be interested in leg and butt successes, specifically related to cellulite. I want to know if I should maintain hope that eventually my legs will simply look nicer. Thank you all for sharing.

    I don't have visual evidence, but my cellulite definitely seems to be on the retreat. I have seen a major improvement in the last 7lbs under the top end of 'normal' BMI

    My cellulite has almost vanished.

    Faeriesue1... Wow! What a major difference. I think that is awesome! I have the same problem with my legs being the worst part. What did you do related to your exercise/diet?? I could really use the help!

    I can so tell a difference in the side as well. Way to go!

    Faerie - your butt/legs are the most inspiring things I've seen on MFP. I know it takes time and hard work, but how long did it take to go from the first picture to last! Holy crap you really look great.

    You give me hope and inspiration!! My legs and butt have always been big. I'm hoping though that this time I will shrink them as you have. Absolutely fantastic!!

    I looked but I can't really find any leg pics as I don't have a full-length mirror. I do have sort of a progress "bum" pic though. One year apart and about 35lb difference.
