What can I do about cellulite? If I lose weight will it go away?
No guarantee. Cellulite is sadly more just about how the layers of skin/fat/supporting tissue work. Even thin/in shape girls can have it. Exercise and fat loss can minimize it but in all likelihood you'll always have a little.
hail damage FTL
That is why I was asking, because I've seen thin girls with it. Will SOME of it go away though if I lose weight?
Oh sure, you'll definitely see an improvement
Good. I did a Google search and got so many conflicting answers I wasn't really sure what to think. Thanks!
What about the creams and gels that you can buy? Are those temporary improvements that only last as long as you use it?
Ding ding ding! caffeine and the like will temporarily plump the skin, but it doesn't really get rid of it. Neither does endermologie (the rolling thingamajig).
Lowering body fat has a huge effect on cellulite. My wife's friends who were recently pregnant developed some pretty gross legs but after they had their babies and started losing weight again the cellulite went away. They did keep up with their diet and exercise.
read this, kinda interesting:
But if it works while I'm working on losing weight (giving me a better view of my body and encouraging me to lose more weight) it's a win-win situation for me.
Read above I'm working on the losing weight thing (I'm down 5 pounds so far-insignificant to some but a great start for me) but I never realized that I had so much cellulite on my bottom before. I was really embarrassed when I saw it.
I actually read that article a couple of days ago (I did a search before I posted). I asked about the creams because I received a free sample of some (really expensive) cellulite/stretch mark cream in the mail and was amazed at the initial results from it.
whatever you use, stay motivated and keep up the good work zx3.
I noticed a dramatic decrease in my cellulite after I lost the weight. Now I only have like once pocket on my right leg.
pics for proof?
Of my cellulite? I think not.
