My thighs are about about 24 1/2 inches thick with a lot of lose skin and lovely cellulight patches in the back of them, I have never been able to wear shorts or short dresses for that matter.

I started working out (just) my legs about 2 days ago. Do I need to add in other exercises to lose weight on my thighs and tighten up my muscles?....do I need to diet as well?

Any advice would be appreciated

Btw I find lots of lunges to be most helpful in toning..to reduce size running is the best. If you can't run try a stairmaster. I too struggle with big thighs. Genetics.. I had to start running for them to get smaller. I started with slow 4.5 mile jogs and now can easily do 6.5 which is okay. You don't have to run steadily. You can run in intervals. Walk one minute, run two minutes, walk another minute, so forth. Go at your own pace good luck!

Hey angel, please check out a post on this subject that I made in a forum started by "serine t" (she posted pretty much the same question after you did)
In my response I detailed some reasearch done by well known names in health and nutrition on some of the right (and wrong) ways to loose weight (specifically on the thighs). I see some pieces of advice given by some great, well meaning people here that might not be the best way for you to reach your specific goals. Please take a look at my post one serines' s topic and I hope it helps.

i'm a swimmer :) and i really believe swimming helped to be this slim and at the same time fit. i would suggest that you do a few rounds in swimming. it would benefit your whole body not just your legs. :) i know. it worked out for me. haha
