Again, I've been doing cardio and weights. I'm actually starting to feel a little muscle in my arm but they're not getting smaller yet. Thighs just still fat. When will they start to shrink and/or look more toned? Am I just being impatient? Ugh.
    I always tend to lose weight around my face/breast area first, then it moves on. Give it some time, you will notice it else where also...Congrats on your loss

    Funny you say that...we have a gal here in town who no kidding has the BEST LEGS I have ever seen....toned firm and thin....well she is about 80lbs over weight and it is all in her belly! I laughed one night and thought, I will keep my bigg ol' thighs, because when she wears pants you can not tell her legs are amazing! you only notice her belly......at least with me I am fairly evenly proportioned....
