WORKOUT DETAILS

Hi POPsters!!!

Here is today’s Monday workout: Perfect Butt Lift! I’ve designed some brand new moves that will strengthen your hamstrings and shape up your backside. If you’ve ever been worried about how the back of your thighs look, the only way you can really smooth out the bumps of the cellulite is to work the hamstring, stretch the hamstring, exercise overall, and eat clean. There’s no topical cream that will get rid of that “cottage cheese.” Just like how you can’t put cream on your boobs to make them bigger. Sorry, I had to say it. I’ve seen ads for it and all I can do is shake my head. Be happy with your bodies! Enhance what you’ve got and don’t compare your beauty to someone else’s! You’re different!

Do you know what cellulite really is? It’s a collection of fat cells that push against the connective tissue under your skin. In women, the muscle fibers create a honeycomb style pattern so when fat increases in a certain area, that area will bulge – creating the cottage cheese effect. The muscle fibers in men are arranged in a crisscross pattern that prevents dimpling. Isn’t that wonderful? I remember my biology professor trying to explain cellulite in another way too. He told us to imagine our muscle fibers as a bunch of rubber bands stretched out. If we push lard up against the back of the rubber bands, some will pop through, which represents the increase of fat in your body. The lard that gets through is the lumping you see on your hips and thighs if you have cellulite.

Cellulite-5

So the only way to get rid of cellulite is by decreasing the amount of fat in your body. You can do this naturally through diet and exercise. You do not have to go to the extremes of liposuction or other medical procedures. Your genes and your age also affect how visible your cellulite is.

And just a note on topical creams. Some claim to reduce the visibility of cellulite, but if you think about it, how does a cream that goes on your superficial body help get rid of fat internally. Well, the answer is simple. It doesn’t. What it does is remove moisture from the skin and makes the skin become firmer temporarily. This reduces the appearance of cellulite but in NO WAY gets rid of it. It’s like wearing a corset to get abs. Umm no.

Listen up, you are never “doomed” to look a certain way. You can work for the body and the strength you desire, and you will get it as long as you keep trying. The most important thing is to be real with yourself and love what you’ve got. 

Lemme know in the comments below what “problem area” makes you feel most self-conscious and we can talk more about how to deal with them here.

Love you and have a FANTASTIC start to your week. Go accomplish amazing things.

<3 Cassey

    Working the dermalmd for over a year I feel trilled ..wearing a mini after a long time thank to theis cream

  2. Pamela says:

    cellulite can be eliminated by eating right and hydrating. As for cosmetics, try the dermalmd cellulite cream I’ve been using it for a year and have been seeing great results

  3. Franny says:

    As an athlete the dermalmd cellulite cream helped me a lot after gaining weight while injured.. this cream is something else and is sold in the US

  4. Daniela Delarosa says:

    Skin tone is improved on the legs, arms, and tummy. Maybe even a slimmer look with diminished cellulite. I use dermalmd cellulite serum in the shower with a nubby handheld massager I also got on google. Great cellulite oil at a great price. Will always have some on hand. A great moisturizer to use quickly when getting out of the shower too! A little goes a long way. Smells great too

  5. Melinda says:

    I’ve had a bad case of cellulite since i was 16, now 55. I’ve stayed active my entire life, eaten healthy, exercise, don’t drink or smoke, have tried everything out there to eliminate it but to no avail. I’m 5’6″, medium build, consistant size 10 with no other weight issue other than the cottage cheese backside. I can wear average length shorts but since my thighs have always carried an extra 5-6 pounds I haven’t worn short shorts for 40 years. My observation is all the hamstring exercises, eating healthy & lifestyle choices in the world will not get rid of severe cellulite. It only works for milder cases. Just my thoughts on the topic, the rate of severity makes a huge difference in your results. Everything I see on the topic is rubbish, nothing works for me!

  6. Berenice Geneva says:

    My friend Jessica Riley she is also celebrity trainer and she told me about DermalMD Cellulite Cream for get rid of cellulite and trust me This is a very good cellulite cream! It has many awesome ingredients that make this cream work. I’ve been using this cream for a few weeks now and it works quickly and
    effectively. It goes on very smooth and absorbs very quickly. It has not left my skin oily. In fact besides helping with my cellulite it has also made my skin super soft and is perfect for dry winter skin. I just simply massaged a generous amount on my problem areas twice daily! Easy as that!

  7. When we talk about cellulite, the workouts are something that can be way more effective than anything else. Perfect bull lift is a workout that merely stresses on the thighs and helped the one to get rid of the cellulite. I have tried it and it really solved the purpose for me.

  8. Nina Groeneveld says:

    I received a bottle of DermalMD Cellulite Reduction Serum for reviewing purposes and I loved it. It worked really well. I can notice less cellulite on my thighs. My skin looks a lot firmer. This is the first product out of all the products I’ve tried before that actually works for me! I recommend this to anyone looking for a serum like this. Also the serum isn’t greasy and blends nicely into skin.

  9. henry says:

    My stomach grow to big even when I take little thing in and also my butt to big for the kind of things I put on what will I do about it?

  10. Nancy says:

    My inner thighs and inner calves area have stretch marks and also below my hips. I always wanted to wear booty shorts but because of these stretch marks I feel so insecure and can’t even wear a bathing suit. I want them to be gone but stretch marks are for forever. 🙁

    1. bev says:

      You can hind stretch marks by having sun beds and applying fake tan. I have done this for years. I was a size 20 when I was just 18 then by the time I was 22 I was a size 10. From going to the gym and diet. I have no loose skin but I do have a lot of stretch marks. I hope this helps

  11. Victoria says:

    Thank you for interesting information.

    Try a low sugar diet and synergistic moves. Here is a great post on that. http://www.whysugar.net/how-do-i-get-rid-of-cellulite/

  13. Teach42 says:

    When a friend told me about a new cream that she is trying, called the Somaluxe Stretch Mark Cream, I really didn’t think that it would work. As a matter of fact I even laughed at her for trying it. She was telling me all about the routine that she had to do with it, and frankly, I thought it was too much of a hassle to do for something that more than likely didn’t work anyway.

    Now, I have to say that I had to eat a little crow when she actually started showing a decrease in the cellulite on her thighs! So naturally, I ordered the Somaluxe Stretch Mark Cream online. I originally thought that it was a little pricey, but when I consider the progress that I have made by using it, it’s really underpriced.

    I ordered the 4 fl. oz. jar of the Somaluxe Cream and it actually lasts for a while. Don’t get this wrong, it didn’t happen overnight (for me it took around 1 1/5 weeks), but then again I had a lot of cellulite. I know, I said it too! But doing the process of applying the cream, wrapping myself in saran wrap (I felt really silly), then gauze, really was the key to get it to work. I did use a heating pad but I would assume that a warm (not hot) blow dryer could work as well.

  14. Brenda says:

    I just started noticing how much fat and cellulite I have on my thighs. So that is a big problem area for me as well as my “spare tire” ab/love handle area….but I started following blogilates and doing the strength training videos as well as walking/running on the tredmill I know blogilates has cardio videos but I like to run 🙂

  15. Assan James says:

    If you want to eliminate cellulite from your thighs then it is important that you realize that the foods you consume on A daily basis can greatly influence the effects of cellulite. The more fruits and vegetables you can incorporate into your diet the better off you will be and the chances of success will be that much greater. If your diet consists of a lot of fried and fatty foods you are really going to have to make the sacrifice if you want to get the results you desire.

  17. TiaGreene says:

    I use the Made from Earth Holistic Honey Lotion and somehow I put it on, and at night – IT TINGLES – At first it freaked me out but that’s prove that it’s doing it’s job. Of course, after applying to your cellulite, you must MASSAGE the Made from Earth Honey Lotion several minutes DEEP, so blood circulation can be doing it’s job ( I hope I am not mistaken) …..I can see a MAJOR difference in my cellulite since I have been using it. . .

    1. S. Williams says:

      Hello, how long have you been using this cream?

  18. Chrissy says:

    I agree that keeping keeping in tune with an active and healthy lifestyle is key in the battle against cellulite. But the biggest challenges with cellulite are a lack of circulation and lymphatic drainage. The easiest way to increase circulation and lymphatic drainage on a deep level (other than intense cardio) is with cupping. ButterCup, is an amazing in home cupping treatment that uses negative suction to help reduce the appearance of cellulite while allowing you to maintain your results. We believe in healthy alternatives to beauty and are against animal and self cruelty which is why we developed ButterCup. Finally a ethical, natural and effective cellulite solution for women who want to show a little leg with a lot of confidence.

    Thanks for the post! It’s very important that we understand what cellulite is and causes of cellulite, this way we know what to do to avoid it.

  20. Mark says:

    Great post! I think daily exercise and healthy diet is the best way to avoid or get rid of cellulite. Even though there’s other methods like creams or treatments available out there it’s still not proven that it works.

    http://how–to-get-rid-of-cellulite.blogspot.com/

  21. Outstanding post however , I was wondering if yyou coud write a litte more on this subject?
    I’d be very grateful if you could elaborate a little bit more.
    Thank you!

  22. rina says:

    I’m underweight – less than 18 BMI, but have a bubble butt and saddlebags. I eat right, am vegetarian, portion control, and work out at least 3x/week. but still no loss of fat in outer thighs or butt – help!! It’s so hard to find proper clothes – dresses are hard b/c my butt is so much bigger than upper body and pants are hard to find due to outer thigh sticking out so much.

    1. Sara says:

      I have a similar issue, too! =/

    2. Jenna says:

      I think I found my twin! I am very small, 105 lbs and skinny, vegetarian, but cannot for the life of me get rid of cellulite on my butt and thighs, and my saddlebags are embarrassing, too. I have been working out 6 days a week for at least 5 years. I feel so defeated!

  23. I’m not sure exactly whу but this website is loading extremely slow
    for me. Is anyone else having this problem or is it a problem on
    my end? I’ll cheсk back latsr on and see if the problem sgill existѕ.

  24. Great article. I used to have cellulite on my thighs, and I will share what worked for me so you can copy my steps:
    – drink 2-3 liters of water with lemon daily
    – massage your cellulite areas 2 times daily; brushing also helps
    – follow only a raw veggies diet
    – do 20 minutes of squats daily

    You should be fine if you just follow these steps. If you want my full story, just click The Name that appears in my comment box, right above my comment.

    Good luck!

    1. Kascia says:

      hoe long it took for them to go away

  25. Remarkable! Its genuinely aweesome post, I have got much clsar idea about from this
    piece of writing.

  26. KendallAnn says:

    I have a huge problem with my stomach, butt and thighs. I have giant “thunder thighs” as some people call it. My butt is also pretty large. I can’t figure out how to get my butt and thighs into shape. My stomach has stretch marks all over it and so do my thighs. My butt kinda does but not as much as everything else. What should I do to get them into shape??? Does anyone know anything???

    1. magnificent says:

      Try going wheat/gluten free. It helped me and I have tried everything!

  27. Maggielicious says:

    I have celulite everywhere even on my back on my arms and especially butt 🙁 is there any exercises I could do for my back tomato make the cellulite on my back to fade away ? HELP GIRLS !!

    1. Veronica says:

      Chances are, if you have cellulite in all of those areas, you are probably carrying extra weight as well. When it comes to losing cellulite, you must also lose that extra weight, which means burning calories and building muscle. The internet is a great source for information on designing a routine. The key is consistency. You will never see results if you are not consistent. Gaining weight didn’t happen by eating a few slices of pizza every once in a while, just like burning fat will not go away exercising 30 minutes every once in a while. Running, jogging, or stair master which is cardio and works the butt/thighs as well are great to start out with. 30 min, 45 min, an hour. The point is to sweat and keep up a sweat. You will start to lose weight all over and that is why you will want to start getting used to using machines to tone up the rest of your body.

  28. Holly says:

    Cassey, can you do a workout to get rid of cellulite??

  29. Riccelen says:

    I wonder how long it would take to lose completely the cellulite if I eat right and work out. Cause I do it and it decreases but it never disappears!

  30. My problem areas are my stomach that keeps on staying big, but I am taking 2 TBSP of apple cider vinegar deluted in 8 oz of water every day for all of this week, so hopefully that gets rid of it before my VACATION for Thanksgiving break and I am so EXCITED i am giving it a humungous RUNONSENTENCE!!! yay! i have a ton of cellulite on the bag of my thighs, but i am not self conscious of it very much. i am more annoyed with my stomach!

  31. Ally says:

    well I have amazing looking legs but I have a really big muffin top that doesn’t go with anything so I wanna wear shorts and a tank top but my muffin top gets in the way of it 🙁 i’m still 17, cassey helps!

  32. Bianca says:

    I’ve always had a problem with my lower stomach. No matter my weight or my fitness level I’ve always had a Kangaroo Pouch and I’ve never even had kids!!

    Please love
    PS I love your website

  33. Stephanie says:

    Hey ladies! Remember that your are all gorgeous just as you are! Congratulate yourselves for taking ACTION to take care of your bodies by eating properly and exercising regularly. Yes- getting the body of your dreams is a bonus but REMEMBER there is so much more to life than outward beauty. Think about things that may trigger bad eating habits or being too tired to work out. Exercise/diet is a part of a well balanced life in addition to good financial habits, spiritual, emotional, work, family, and social life. Remember to love yourself first in order to love others effectively.

  34. tnStephanieo says:

    Hey ladies! Please remember that you are gorgeous just as you are! I struggled for years with being unhappy with my body. I still feel insecure about my cellulite but as long as I am taking care of myself by no

  35. Alice says:

    I have a big problem with my lower belly pooch. But since I had surgery a few years ago my stomach cramps when I work that area at all!

  36. Nasia says:

    Hi Casseyyyy!!!
    I do not have a “big” problem with my body, i exercise, do yoga and pilates 4 hours per day, i eat healthy and i take care of my self BUT i am a bit disappointed cause my abs do not show up even if i add 2 hours cardio per week 🙁
    Some times i am thinking that i try and try and try but it is not worth it 🙁
    Any advise???
    Thanks
    Nasia

    1. four HOURS per DAY? Do you mean week? I hope you mean per week!

    2. Isabel says:

      You’re definitely working out a lot! I wish I had the time to workout 4 hours a day!!
      1) Are you sure you’re giving your body time to repair itself? That’s why rest days are important!
      2) Are you workout out your abs? Yes, yoga and pilates will help with your abs, but if you really want your abs to show, you can’t just do cardio to lower your bf%. You have to actually have abs to show! You definitely don’t need a super low bf% to have abs, especially if you have a healthy weight / BMI. You seem to be rather healthy, so it might just be a matter of adding ab workouts!
      I hope this helps! ^^
      I’m in no way an expert, but I do relate because I have a dance / cheer background and kind of have an absession 😉

  37. Thaliane says:

    heyy, I’m 17 and I have so much cellulite, it’s horrible. I try to keep exercising and eating healthy but right know I’m working at Mc’Donalds, and go to school ALL day! It’s so hard to eat healthy when you leave home for school at 7:30 am and only arrive at midnight. Can you help me?

    1. Neeter says:

      Take little healthy snacks with you to munch on:)

  38. Kevin says:

    I agree that exercise is by far the best way to go to get rid of cellulite. There are over 90 muscles in the lower body and to get rid of cellulite long term you need to strengthen and tone the muscles under the usual problem areas. The butt lift exercises in the video are great and will help tome those butt muscles and get rid of any cellulite in that area.

  39. Rosie.w says:

    I’m a 14 year old girl and I’ve been off and on with blogilates
    For over four months (in the first 4 months I lost 4 kg) BUT I still have quite big sides on my stomach.
    Everyone in my family is prone to gaining weight in their “love handle region . I really want to get that narrow body shape should I keep going and wait for the weight to drop off there?
    Or is that unlikely to happen, has anyone else got the same body shape as I really never see it on anyone else! Haha
    So my trouble area is my “love handles” even though I weigh a healthy 54.4kg!!
    Please tell me if there’s a way of getting rid of trouble areas!
    Rosie x

    1. Isabel says:

      Don’t worry, I have very similar body type as you! I gain weight on my stomach and love handle areas. Everybody is different in a sense of weight loss/gain, so it’s hard for me to guess at what will happen with you, but my best guess is just to keep at cardio and eating clean if you want to drop a few pounds (or kilograms). Its hard to know where the weight is going to come off, and as you probably know you can never just lose weight in one area, but you can tone up in certain areas.
      My second recommendation is just to love what you’ve got! I used to despise my love handles but eventually I learned that my love handles are part of who I am. Really, my love handles were (and still are) barely there!
      Good luck Rosie, and remember to be healthy and love yourself (but push yourself, too).
      Isabel

  40. Rebecca says:

    I used to be very self conscious about my stretch marks..I used so many creams to try and make them disappear. However, I have learned to love my stretch marks as I heard one woman say “They make us like sexy tiger with stripes” . So I’ve embraced being a sexy tiger. Cellulite I may have to come to love as well, as it does not matter how much fat you have (sorry Cassey) skinny girls can have cellulite too! I’m just trying to love my body first before I change it. Because it won’t solve my self-esteem issues if I lose a few pounds. Be happy with what you were given ladies!!

    1. Stephy says:

      Hi! You might want to try affordable stretch creams like Bio-Oil or Mederma! They worked for me- good luck! 🙂

      1. Isabel says:

        I’ve tried bio-oil, but I’m kind of bad about actually sticking to it twice daily like it says….so I haven’t seen any improvement xP
        I might just try again, if it worked for you! 🙂

  41. Briony says:

    My problem area is my thighs. I get noticeable saddlebags and “thicker” thighs in general when I overindulge/under exercise. At least my body tells me day to day when I’m doing it wrong – my thighs start rubbing and I can hear myself walking down the corridors, lol.. no, it’s not very funny. It’s weird ’cause my upper body is always quite bony – I can always see my ribs, clavicle etc. – my boobs fluctuate in size though :/ But when I commit to a training plan, such as the monthly Blogilates calendar(!) I no longer rub, and I can see definition very quickly in my upper body, perkier boobs that I can move, lol..

    I need to better recognize that my body responds actually quite quickly when I put the effort in and do the right things; I can get sidetracked easily.

    1. Briony says:

      It’s usually my lower back pain that sidetracks me.. Though since doing Pilates regularly I haven’t been bedridden from the pain, which I’m incredibly grateful for.

  42. Chaeli says:

    My problem areas are definately my stretch marks on my inner thighs, my cellulite on my back thighs under my bottom. They make me self conscious and I hate wearing bottoms that are short because of them.

    I need workouts that are gonna help me kick the stretch marks and cellulite off my bod! Im only 19 and embarrassed to wear some of my favorite pieces.

    I also have a general question: Is it bad if your thighs touch to your knees but your calves and bottom part of your legs do not?

    Help Cass!

    1. Isabel says:

      My body type is similar to yours- that’s where all my stretch marks are too! XP
      Let me know if you find anything that works, because I’m a little bit in the dark too! XD

      And to your general question, No! You don’t need a thigh gap to be healthy (I’m pretty sure Cassey’s written on this before). It really just depends on your level of fitness! :)) The more important things are your fitness and bf%! 😀 As long as you’re in the healthy weight zone, you should be fine! ^^ (BMI isn’t that great of an indicator, btw, so I wouldn’t rely too much on that as an indicator xD especially if you have lots of muscle!)

  43. Mayra says:

    I think my area problem are the stretch marks I have in my hips and my butt :C they make me afraid of use some clothes, i can’t go to swim because I’ll be ashamed if someone notices them… Help!!

  44. Hazel says:

    im most self concious about my chest and my stomach :/
    im not fat and i do dance, but im really small on the chest area which makes me look like ive a tummy although im quite sure it isnt thattttt fat. i get bloated sometimes sigh.
    i want to have a flat tummy and bigger boobs but its the other way round now.

  45. Sam Gourley says:

    Can you please help me!! Under my butt and right at the bottom of my butt has cellulite and it lowers my self conscience. Being a gymnast I wear leotards alot and it’s embarrassing to have “cottage cheese” that everybody can see 🙁 I could really use your help in getting ride of the cellulite and boost my cardio for my floor routines 🙂

  46. Laura says:

    Cellulite on my thighs have reduced after doing lunges and squats, but now I’m more worried about the stretch marks on my hips and upper thighs, which are the areas that tend to fluctuate the most. Sadly, that must also be one of the reasons for my stretch marks. I’m hoping that if I keep working out, it will eventually be less visible like my cellulite. Fingers crossed.

    Cassey, if you have advice for stretch marks, I’m all ears.
    Thanks for all your inspirational words of encouragement.

  47. farzi says:

    Heyy Cassey~ (^∇^)/
    I really want to thank you.. You’ve been such an inspiration I never got from any other fitness instructor or fitness class.. And I’m just happi when I’m fit I feel like I’m stronger to begin my day and take on challenges ^—^
    Thank you

  48. You actually cannot get RID OF IT completely. You’re born with it. However, you can MINIMIZE its appearance.

    AND THANK YOU for making note about the cellulite “reduction” creams – THEY’RE SUCH A JOKE! Such a marketing ploy. It’s from the inside, out, NOT the outside, in!

  49. hafsa says:

    I havd spider veins and cellulites, although i eat healthy,,workout. Been looking for forever to videos or just about anything of workoutthat makes them seem less appearing,,im no grandma, also being in my 20s i feel very lonely in this.

  50. jenny says:

    Honestly, it’s always the tummy for me. I mean I’m “naturally skinny” but it takes forever for me to reduce the fat in my tummy. I wanna know how long will I see the results..I’ve been wanting abs and it’s been months..

    1. Melanie says:

      Miss Jenny, I understand your pain! I found the It Work’s Wrap & I think you would love to know about it! Simply visit my blog at http://fitandhealthywraps.tumblr.com/wraps to learn more! 9 out of 10 people see measurable results within 45 mins! I have thousands of customers who have tried it! I promise It Works!

    2. sabrina says:

      Hi jenny! I’m sure you’ve probably heard this time and time again, but the best way to abs is through clean eating and strength training. Here’s the thing about strength training: since you are a woman, it is impossible (without the aid of steroids lol) for you to bulk up and become a body-builder version of yourself. What will happen is that muscle will grow, the tummy fat will minimize, and your toned muscles (because your abs are already there, they just need definition) will start to show because there’s no extra layer between them and your skin. Also! More muscle means faster metabolism, clean eating means (generally) more work for your body to digest and more all around efficiency = Jenny the body GOD lol. But seriously, clean eating and strength training is the way to go. I might suggest the paleo diet, if you’re wanting fast results, but your diet is up to you. Good luck!

  51. at says:

    I have a pear shaped body and I love my hips and butt. My conscious area is always my tummy!!! I am fairly active and eat week but I always have a pooch no matter what I do. The answer is always through cleaner diet and exercise but ughhhhhhhhhasdlfkjaslkfjasldf. (I also know genetics are a factor, and everyone in my family has a pooch so 🙁 )

  52. Cara says:

    My problem area has nothing to do with cellulite, it’s my stomach. The sides are flat but in the middle where abs should be there’s an awkward gathering of fat. I know I have to lose weight over all to get rid of it, but it seems like that’s the last place I lose weight from.

    1. Melanie says:

      Cara… I left a comment for Jenny above but it applies to you too! I promise It Work’s! http://fitandhealthywraps.tumblr.com/wraps!!

    what about stretch marks?? please help me

  54. Sarah K says:

    I have very low flexibility. I would love to see a video towards improving overall flexibility in my body, like my hip flexors, hamstrings and calves (all so tight!)

  55. Tania says:

    Hey Cassey,

    I love how wonderful and inspiring you are ! Any way I can get in touch with you to ask you specific questions about workouts?

    Thanks a mil
    Tania

  56. What a great post! I’ve been blighted by cellulite from my lower back right down to my knees, even at my lowest weight. I hated it, but I’ll admit I never read up on it. I didn’t use creams or anything either, I just accepted it as yet another part of me that I hated. But in the past year, my cellulite has cleared up incredibly. I put that down to working the area and eating clean and a lot of that is thanks to you and your site Cassey! This post just hammered home the message.

  57. Amber says:

    Thank you for the workout and advice to target cellulite Cassey! Cellulite is a big issue between myself and a few close friends (including my friends that are overall very healthy and skinny, it’s still an issue for even them!) I feel like it’s the ultimate enemy when trying to correct those little insecurities on our bodies. So this is fabulous information 🙂 x
    The boobs comment made me laugh, but it kind of saddened me too hahaha.
    I wish cream did make them bigger! :'( I feel inferior with a tiny chest!

    1. christie says:

      I feel SUPERIOR with smaller boobs! Know why? Boobs get in the way of things like archery, billiards, they bounce when you run and you can’t tan the underneaths if they’re just all floppy folded over! Not to mention the hundreds of dollars I save by not having to wear underwire bras, or bras at all if I don’t want to! Double layer tank top good to go! SMALL BOOBS FTW!

  58. Feebee says:

    One problem area would be my big toned calves. They are not hideous but bigger than the average girl’s. They are toned already so am not sure how to slim them down. I have trouble buying boots because it’s hard to find one that fit me. At night, it’ll go up by 1cm due to water retention, but by morning it’ll go down again. Another problem area are my thighs. Would love to get rid of the cellulite there.

    1. Carina Cristina says:

      I feel you on this one! I’m very tall and slender, but I have muscular calves. They aren’t huge, but look out of proportion with the rest of my lanky body. I don’t think there’s anything I can do about them 🙁
      I also have the exact same problem with water retention. 1 cm. Yup!

      1. Neha says:

        Well i have the same problem ,my calves are like 15 and look huge .3 weeks back i started doing cassey’s “GALD YOU CAME CALF” Challenge like 3 times every alternate day and trust me they are shaping up very fell have lost like an inch already n i feel great.

        I use to run a lot i realized thats just making my calves look more muscular,so i stopped and just walk .

        It helps truly.

        I really want to try this challenge everyday but i am scared that what if …..it makes it more muscular ??

  59. sabrina says:

    this really has nothing to do with cellulite, but I have a problem that I’d really like to have a solution to! My arms have been muscular for as long as I can remember, and I’ve played volleyball for 9 years which really only made them more muscular. Between this season and last season I stopped playing and my arms seemed to lose definition and instead became floppy and big. My thighs are exactly the same way; muscular in some areas, but nearly just as flappy. It’s like muscle and fat teamed up to make two sausages on either side of my torso and below my waist, which, let’s be honest, isn’t too flattering. I’m 16 and am now quite self-conscious because of my arms and thighs. What can I do, Cassey? Please help! Thank you!

    1. christie says:

      when i was 18 I quit sports (because highschool ended) and the same thing happened to me – so I took up yoga and swimming at the YMCA and got some free week-long gym memberships around town and hit that up daily. In a couple months I was back to the shape I was in, but slimmer, and eating alot more healthily. Being away from the fastfood so prevalent around my highschool helped, so try to make homemade meals to bring to school, and get your friends out cooking with you – it makes it ten times more fun

      1. sabrina says:

        Thank you so much Christie!! I’ll definitely try eating well with my friends; that sounds like a ton of fun 🙂 There’s no YMCA that’s nearby for me so I was thinking about taking up pilates and/or barre. Do you think that that would work?

  60. hayley says:

    i hate my legs and butt im too scared to wear shorts or skirts at all! and im only in my early teens and i hate cellulite so much please help me cassey! please do workouts to help make it less appearble on my legs and butt please!! >_<

    1. Chrissy says:

      Check out my buttercup.ca it really is the only cellulite solution that has ever worked for me, that’s the reason I developed the company, it was too good not to share with other women who are insecure about their legs.

  61. Pakou says:

    Even though I do have cellulites and stretch marks there is one big thing that I’m really self conscious and i honestly don’t even know why; its my dark thighs and underarms and i also have ugly scars and bug scars all over my body. I hate it and it makes me feel ugly and embarrassed all the time 🙁 HELP!!

  62. Tiffany says:

    I don’t wear shorts or short skirts at all! I’m only 32 but have always had jobs that have me on my feet all the time. I have horrible varicose veins that start on the backs of my knees and work their way up. I also have skinny legs, big thighs with jiggly issues and this weird fat pocket thing on the inside of my knees. very very strange. I’m very confident from the waist up but from the waist down, not so much. I’m not a slouch by any means. I love doing your workouts and it really sets me in a great mood for the rest of my day. Is there anything else i should be doing?

  63. Nisa R. says:

    Stretch Marks!!!!! Help! I’m very insecure of my lower back, I have huge LOVE HANDLES that won’t seem to go away. Help!!!

  64. sofia says:

    Hi! My problem is my belly. I have it very toned, i can feel it adn actually see it, but there is a stubborn thin layer of fat with that cottage cheese look which i hate. Really dont know what else to do, i am a ballet dancer and eat healthy.

  65. Donna says:

    I have cellulite on my legs and it looks horrible! I hate them so much! I love shorts and bikinis in the summer but I always end up wearing jeans through out the WHOLE summer because I can’t get rid of them no matter what I do! I sometimes feel like crying because it’s just nasty I no matter what I do, they won’t come off.

  66. i.k says:

    hey cassey! i’ve been having a huge problem with my stretch marks, they’ve been on my hips since 5th grade and i use bio-oil and everything to try to get rid of them but it never works! i really dont know what to do about it, i cant wear crop tops or a bikini because i’m scared that somebody will point them out and its having an impact on my self confidence, i’m in year 8 now and i know a lot of girls are really unconfident with their bodies but i just dont see why. they dont have much cellulite & they dont even have stretch marks! its so unfair ugh, please help me 🙁

  67. rosie says:

    So true! there is no magic cream to reduce cellulite, but there are definitely things that help:
    1.) exercise is one very important one
    2.) eating clean! (i found that a grain free diet works great for me)
    3.) GRASSFED GELATIN…. i know this on is a little weird but gelatin builds collagen that locks in your fat cells (just make sure the gelatin is from grass fed cows)
    if you have no idea how to incorporate gelatin into your diet, think homemade smoothies, pudding, soups, jello, homemade fruit snacks, ect…..
    ~rosie

  68. May says:

    I absolutely hate my butt and upper legs, it’s like if all the cellulite in the world decided to throw a party in it, and im super skinny so it looks so weird, i swear i have it since i was a baby i can show pictures of my mom holding me at 5 months old and you’ll see the freaking dimples in my legs! it’s the most frustrating thing in the world, im fine with rest of my body but my butt, it’s like oh lord jesus there’s a fire!

  69. Ame says:

    Stretch marksssss.

  70. SugarEyes says:

    I’m conscious of my inner thighs because it’s so jiggly. . Also my short legs. Cassey, do you have a workout that will make your legs longer? =)

  71. Kristin says:

    I just hate how my stomach looks after a 9 pound baby and C-section… horrible stretch marks and scars. Nothing I can fix by working hard, unfortunately. Thighs could use some toning too, but at least that is within my power!

  72. Catt says:

    Hey Cassey!
    I’ve never had a SERIOUS problem with cellulite since I’ve always exercised growing up in my family (Plus I dry brush! ;-)), but whenever I’m not at my fittest, there’s always this very thin less than an inch persistent layer of cellulite! Or I think that’s what it is. When I was a kid and was working my abs a lot I remember that there was literally no extra layer there. Is it really just amount/intensity of exercise? My training when I was a kid was on the level of a serious athlete’s, so I don’t know if I could do the same now!
    xxx,
    catt

  73. Aditi says:

    My problem area are my calf, knees and lower abs.
    calf – My thighs are toned and then I have the skinniest calves in the world, with no shape to them. They are like a stick. Looks weird when I wear shorts and it reveals my entire leg
    lower abs – Who doesn’t have that tiny stubborn belly fat right underneath the belly button?
    Knees – I’m way too clumsy and fall down a lot so my knees have so many scars =( and due to that also discolouration

  74. Kellie says:

    My arms!!!! 🙁 How do I make them thinner? They are just bulky and not “lean”. I have lost weight all around my body but my arms still look awful!!! 🙁

  75. Sarah S says:

    Before I mention what my problem areas are, I want to be thankful of the areas I don’t have as much trouble with – my arms/shoulders & lower legs. I am so glad I can tone these areas with minimal effort, BUT of course, I’m not perfect. My trouble areas are my thighs & that stupid lower belly that will not go away (EVER). I feel so hopeless when I lose weight & see losses in other areas, besides my belly. It’s like a pooch that gives rise to a tire that goes around my body (between my belly button and bikini line). So unattractive!! CASSEY, please if there is any way at ALLLL, for this annoying part of my body to go away, please share! I feel that many women have problems with attaining a flat belly. Thank you so much for your videos & kind words. Lots of love! <3

  76. Meghan says:

    Hi Cassey! Great post! I do have cellulite on my butt and upper thighs, but I am not a heavy person (5’6″, 125 pounds), and am satisfied with my size and weight overall. Is there a way to get rid of the cellulite without losing weight?

  77. Alicia says:

    My problem areas are my lower stomach, hips and thighs. I have a muffin top that i really want to get rid of, but I just don’t really have the motivation to try to get rid of it anymore. I’m kind of athletic, Lately I’ve been walking almost every morning and in the spring/summer I play soccer. I got into the workout videos in August, then I went camping for about a week, came home and had no motivation anymore. I need to get more motivated, I just don’t know how.

  78. hannah says:

    i would say my biggest problem areas are thighs and hips. like inner, outer and the backs (right under the bum!). i’d like to slim down overall as well, but that’s mainly a diet factor that needs to be addressed : P

  79. MiinaMarie says:

    my biggest issues have always always always been the pelvic region – the stupid fat area that refuses to leave from under your belly button toward your groin (and also when it wraps around your body – the spare tire maybe?) my inner thighs – or thighs in general – they hate me – and no matter how much fat i feel i lose and how much i work on toning, my arms are still chubby darn it! Somehow they’re still chubby looking when they lay flat against me, even though my shoulders, collarbone all that area looks pretty buff. gaaah!

  80. Catherine says:

    Hi everyone! I’m doing a photo shoot for a catalogue in two weeks I feel so unhealthy are there any extreme workouts I can do to tone up and lose 5 pounds before the shoot? It’s really important I feel like no matter how consistent I am with my workouts it takes months for a noticeable difference. I know this takes time but I need the amount of exercise I would do in a month or two condensed.

    1. Beib says:

      I guess pop hiits are the best. Eat healthy and workout every single day 🙂
      I am not a pro of course,but I experienced that ^^

  81. Lottie says:

    I’m tall, but I have a long body and relatively short legs. I’d like to wear more heels to make my legs look longer, so for me, it’d have to be cardio. I can’t do anything to change my body shape, but I can help myself lose body fat and tone up =)
    Well, when I have the motivation to anyway… ^__^;

  82. Katie says:

    PLEASE do one on how to fix “Skinny Fat”. I feel like this is a VERY difficult thing to reverse :,( Like if you’re too thin, but have a poochy belly and big thighs and just completely untoned, how is it possible to lose those things without losing weight?

    1. hannah says:

      try doing more weight training to gain muscle!

  83. Caitlin says:

    Lower AB POOCH please ! Probably same story as the cellulite tho right? Less overall body fat? Do you already have a workout and meal plan designed for fat burning?

    Xoxo thanks C

  84. Sarah says:

    My problem area is my boobs. Too small. I have a tone body and all, buuuuut no boobs (almost)… The saddest about it is that there is NO workout to increase the size of the boobs. That’s very depressing !

    1. Megan says:

      Sadly, no. There really isn’t a workout I make your boobs bigger (at least as far as I’m aware). BUT! In my experience, when I have worked out my chest and arms (really my whole upper body) I noticed my boobs were perkier and more lifted, which made them look a bit bigger. This, plus a good padded bra helped me a lot.

    2. MiinaMarie says:

      im sad because ive lost weight – and that means bra size too…i honestly feel like its sucked all the mass out of my boobs and not from my middle. i know it says it takes fat evenly, i feel in my case (with my boobs) thats a big fat lie hahaha so i feel your pain regarding having small ladies.

    3. Erin says:

      THIS YES ME TOO. After starting cross country, went from a B to a AA. It’s either special order bras or sports bras for me.

    4. Catt says:

      My boob size actually increased almost a full cup size even though I’ve lost weight from last year. I think it’s the nutrients from the food I eat coupled up with the exercise I do. I don’t exercise as intensely as I would like to yet, but I’ve lost a lot of weight from what I nourish my body with (about 7kgs from a year ago, but the scales are always a bit wonky so I don’t really know for sure) and my boobs have stayed and even gotten slightly bigger.

  85. Sarah says:

    Could you make a video on toning up back muscles please Cassey?? Thanks!

  86. Elena says:

    A few months ago I would have said my problem areas were inner thighs and arms and belly.. now I lost some weight and toned. Sometimes I miss my little extra layer of fat and that extra bra size I lost.. sometimes I think I should gain weight and go back were I was, just more toned.. I don’t know, now my body is thin and toned and athletic, but before it was more curvy and feminine. Which one is better? What should I do?

    1. jessica says:

      I’m sure you’re beautiful both ways, but good for you for being honest about how YOU want to be. If you miss your curves and a little extra weight, go for it! Still exercise and eat clean, but increase your calorie intake so you’re not burning as much as you’re consuming til you get back to where you want to be. Supplement smoothies might be the thing to add. Good luck and congratulations on all your hard work!

  87. Melissa says:

    My problem area is the cellulite on the backs of my thighs… ugh! I try so hard with diet and exercise… I am a vegetarian, eat mostly healthy, workout as often as I can with Cassey’s butt videos, but still can’t dispose of that cellulite 🙁 Help

  88. Asia Marie Sison says:

    My problem areas are my thighs! Inner thighs! My goal is to get that thigh gap! 🙂

  89. Charlie says:

    Hey Cassie & Popsters (:

    My problem area is .. LEGS ! Got cellulite all over my thighs, my calves. It cames with hormonal problems when I was about 12 and I can not get rid of it (I’m now 17). I’m all lean on the upper part of my body and plumpy on the lower part. I’m doing cardio, workouts and trying to eat clean but it’s still here ! I’m gonna keep working till I get results. If you have advices, please tell me (: Thanks !

    Kisses from France !

  90. Stephanie says:

    I think my problem is my inner thights I hate how they just kill my jeans and make me really uncomfortable when I use skirts or dresses u.u

  91. Sabie says:

    Hey Cassey!
    My problem area for cellulite is definitely on the side of my thighs and right underneath my butt! What video of yours do you recommend??

  92. Angela says:

    My problem area is my butt and thighs and abs, I just want them to be more firm and toned!

  93. Eleni says:

    I have the lovely pear body shape so my problem area is the general hip & thigh region! I can be so disciplined for a period of time, but then I don’t see results, in fact sometimes my jeans start fitting even TIGHTER, and I end up giving up! It’s an ongoing struggle!

    1. Molly says:

      You aren’t alone I have the exact same issue!

      1. MiinaMarie says:

        i have the issue where i know pants will totally sit on my waist/hips, but getting them past my friggins thighs is an uncomfortable chore and a half. *internet hug for disobedient thighs*

  94. Robin says:

    After 3 kids, I have lots of “problem” areas. Number 4 is currently on board so I am sure I’ll have a lot of work to do in 7 months. So. . . Lower abs, thighs, butt. Breastfeeding and baby holding take care or arms and chest 🙂

    1. MiinaMarie says:

      i hope to have kids in the not too distant future…cassie maybe you should do some preggers-pilates…preglates! haha…im sure you will if you have kids

  95. Sara says:

    my problem area is my love handles and my saddlebags…..i dont have a hyge butt but due to my huge saddlebags by butt looks huge too!!its depressing!!btw amazing post cassey!!loved the inspiring words at the end!!
    P.S: You could have made an awesome bio teacher!

  96. Mallory says:

    My problem area is my lower stomach, while its like a small spare tire that goes all the way around to my back. It’s definitely gotten better because I stick you your workout regimen and have lost 7-8 pounds since February, BUT, its not completely gone! It’s frustrating.

    1. Lucy says:

      Yes! Lower stomach. Especially since pregnancy, and the excess skin build-up around there. No idea how to get rid of that flabby skin, or if I ever can. It grosses me out and I feel like I’ll never be able to wear a two-piece again, even though I don’t have that much fat!

  97. Danielle says:

    One of my biggest insecurities is the loose skin I have on my stomach and inner thighs. It’s saggy and I basically have a skin flap. When I jump or run my abs are clearly visible but if I’m still my skin covers everything. I know slowly it will go away but it’s been two years! I lost weight super quickly because of an eating disorder and the malnutrition probably caused the skin to not go back normally. Anyone else have loose skin?

    1. MiinaMarie says:

      im not saying ‘do this’ but if you’re having loose skin issues – like a lot of excess, that toning isnt really helping, you may want to look into a tummy tuck. i know of someone who has done it and she was quite happy with the results.. im not encouraging surgery, id never…but if it would make you happier about yourself and is a last resort option, it might be worth looking into.. 🙂 good luck

  98. Catherine says:

    My problem area is my post baby stomach! Ive had 3 kinds in a 5 year window and my stomach sags 🙁 Im hoping once I lose all of my post baby weight it wont sag anymore but im not so sure 🙁

  99. Corinna says:

    I have two problem areas and they are my “pudge” on my stomach and the area right below my butt. No amount of healthy eating and working out seems to get rid of these.

  100. Erin says:

    My body in General is a problem area. But my love handles and arms are the worst. It seems like no matter what I do my arms are still fat.

  101. Aimee says:

    My biggest problem area is the upper outside of my thighs. They bulge out and then swoop back in right by the head of my femur… I think they’re called saddle bags? I’m 122 lbs and 5’2″… My bf% is definitely higher than I’d like it to be

  102. Estefania says:

    Hi Cassey!!
    i think my mayor problem is also my inner thighs, but also the side of my thighs, we call it “pistolas” in spanish, in english would be “guns”, right on the side of the thighs.
    What kind of food should we avoid to prevent cellulite?
    i loooove all your work outs!!! congrats!!

  103. My problem area is my love handles and the tiny layer of fat over my abs!! I know just need to work on cardio!!

    1. LOLA says:

      I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM… sometimes I WONDER IF IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME (BECAUSE OF MY GENES) TO GET RIDE OF THAT LAYER OF FAT OVER MY OBS TOO…

  104. Farah says:

    I have really saggy boobs and I’m only 19. I went through puberty much earlier than everyone else so my boobs have been a bigger cup for more than half my life. I feel really conscious about them because all my other friends have perfectly perky ones still, and I feel especially uncomfortable sometimes in a bikini. I’m overweight too, and I suffer from a massive amount of cellulite on my thighs but they don’t bother me most of the time. I’ve already half-accepted that I’m going to get a breast lift some time near during my lifetime, and especially since I’m going to lose a lot more weight following Cassey’s programme, I’m sure my breasts are just going to sag even worse. :'(

  105. Nicole says:

    Hey Cassey,
    I know the one area that I consider my problem area is my inner thighs. I work so hard on my legs, and my quads and hammies are great, but for some reason it’s SO hard for me to get my inner thighs to slim down. Also, now that I think about it I have these weird fat bulges on my abs right below my bust line around my ribs..I seriously don’t know how to get rid of it. Cardio? abs? Not sure. Such a big fan of yours, I’ve been doing pop pilates for years.

    1. Vivian says:

      Also have the same problem with inner thighs. I work them to death but no results 🙁 I know I should be patient, but it’s really frustrating to see no progress at all after years of work.

      1. Ana says:

        Do the Inner thigh clarity (but don’t put your leg down, just do! Beast modeee!:D) I saw progress like for 4 days 🙂

        1. Stephanie says:

          So I just don’t touch the mat? :O Totally going to try it tonight O.O

    2. jackie.o says:

      Running, biking and ellipticals work GREAT on working off the fat on your legs. I try to do at least 30 minutes a day of each either one before or after the blogilates workouts.

    3. Jess says:

      I have the same problem! I love my legs, except for my inner thighs! They are gross. I also have those fat bulges on the bottom of my rib cage. So all in all my belly and my inner thighs are my problem areas.

  106. Leah says:

    Exercise yes! BUT there are botanical ingredients that absorb past the first layer of skin that DO make a difference! Gotta use all of God’s good ingredients to help us look our best 🙂 But number one is exercise and healthy eating FOR SURE!

  107. Yeimi says:

    My problem area is not cellulitis or stretch marks because they are things that won’t go away. My problem is my boobs. It is my boobs because they are too big and it scares me that once I lose weight they would still be big. I would rather grab attention from because of me not my big boobs . It is very uncomfortable to go anywhere unless I wear a sweater.

  108. Ayla says:

    Reading all of these comments about women and girls hating certain body parts is breaking my heart! We should focus on our favorite parts instead, how to accentuate and flaunt our best assets! Even if you are eating healthy and exercising regularly, you may never get the perfect body. The first step to “fixing” your “problem areas” is to stop hating them!

    1. MiinaMarie says:

      oh you! good point 🙂
      I love my eyes – which hasn’t always been the case. and I owe my Mom for giving my such great cheekbones. High five great qualities!!!

  109. Carey says:

    OMG THANKYOU CASSEY! THIS IS JUST WHAT I NEEDED! But that is ridiculously unfair, why do girls have to suffer so much ): So if you do leg or butt workouts everyday, how long will it take to get rid of the cellulite?

  110. Manda says:

    My trouble areas are the back of my thighs, butt, and just my thighs in general . I am a very active person but it never seems to show. I swam all though out my jr high school and high school and even then I had trouble with the backs of my thighs . I went into a deep depression and became anorexic and lost a lot of weight. I am a vegan so eating heathy is no problem unless you give me sweets. That seems to be something I have trouble with . Mostly because when I was anorexic people keep reminding me I was to thin so started eating a lot of food even passed the point of felling full. Now I run almost everyday and do videos on utube by you and toneitup. An also I want to know if the ring really helps with toning the backs of the things as well the entire thigh And buttocks .

  111. Alyssa says:

    I’m self concious about my stomach and my sides. I don’t have a big muffin top but I way it gone! And my stomach I just don’t like because its not small or flat like other teenage girls and its not healthy. But I have sane progress in my stomach getting smaller thanks to your videos(: thank you <3

  112. Kristina says:

    I must confess that working with you for a year now, and doing supplemental exercises eg jogging, my thighs cellulite are getting better and better 🙂 This summer i was feeling less embarassed with my shorts, and my goal is that next summer is to feel and look more fabulous. so i thank you Cassey for your help on getting me on the right tracks of a healthy lifestyle 🙂 x

  113. AIVY GERMAN says:

    what is alternative ? if you don’t have that RING,, what is that equipment name again? I think it’s not yet available here in Phil,,,

  114. AIVY GERMAN says:

    To all those moms’ out there, I think there /(our) problem is the post baby fat left in our body,, I’ve seen mom who gave birth after 1 year or more, she’s slim but she always complain her lower ab that she got after gave birth,,, I hope Cassey will do a Work Out for that……

  115. Rebeccah says:

    Since the summer, I’ve been changing the way I eat, as well as what I eat and I’ve noticed some changes in my stomach area. However, my thighs won’t budge!!!!! I have a lot of rippling on my inner and outer thighs. I walk around campus all day and engage in kickboxing, but I just haven’t seen a change in my thighs. What do you suggest?

  116. Natalie says:

    Someone please help me. I have really bad stretch marks, and its really depressing. I can’t wear shorts or a bathing suit, and its really embarrassing. I have a few on my boobs but I don’t care about those. I have it on my inner thighs, calfs, and hips. I am 15 and they are red-pinkish. I’m not quite sure what that means, like if I can never get them to fade or what. Someone please tell me what I can do to make them fade a lot by next summer, thanks 🙂

    I’m not super overweight either, I am about 5″2 and 130 pounds. But I intend to work out a lot and get skinny by next summer ; thats the goal.

    1. Lin says:

      Dear Natalie,
      the summer I turned 15 I was faced with the same problem as you. Red purplish stretch marks on my legs and, in my case, bum. The same for the next summer. The summer after, when I turned 17, it’d gotten a lot better already. This summer I had nothing to be ‘ashamed’ of. You can still see the marks if you look very, VERY, closely, but now they are slightly lighter of colour than my actual skin.
      So don’t worry. It’s going to fade.
      However, I’d like to point out that it’s okay, even if they don’t fade (which they will). Don’t be afraid of wearing shorts and swimwear just because of some minor imperfection. If I could do something over, It’d be not being so over obsessed with the way I looked at around 15/16. I missed out on so much fun because of my self-consciousness. Just smile, no one is going to look at your stretch marks (; Or your weight, really. They will, however, notice how happy and confident you are. Because that’s what actually makes you, Natalie, beautiful (: Stay strong love, xx

    2. Amanda says:

      Natalie,
      There is nothing to be ashamed of! honestly every single girl has stretch marks! I know i do, and my friends do too! We always seem to talk about it at the beach, but laugh it off because we all have them and there is no point in stressing!

      Natalie,
      I am sorry to hear you are dealing with this. I had the same problem, and it is insane how much a physical “flaw” at that age can stress you out. Mine were really bad in high school, all over my thighs, hips, and breasts and I was the perfect weight for my height- so don’t blame yourself for this!
      If your marks are still red, there are fading creams that help a little (not as much as time though.) Also try gently exfoliating the area and putting on Vitamin E oil EVERY DAY. It’s a fairly fast process, and the Vitamin E oil heals scar tissue. During the day artificial tanning creams helped me cover up some of the scars. It is really unfair to have to deal with body image issues at the same moment you are gaining your beautiful feminine features, but I can promise you, as adults my friends and I laugh at how silly it was to worry over our stretch marks at 15.

      1. MiinaMarie says:

        hey natalie. i understand what you’re going through. if it helps, think that you only have them there (and they will absolutely fade) i had them there too – and when i got a little older and suffered from depression i got bigger and got more stretch marks – in areas like my lower stomach my sides, thighs, back of my knees and it was kind of the last straw when i saw them on my arms…they will fade in time. and if your skin gets tighter, they will be less visible too. I’m an advocate for staying out of the sun (like purposefully…i enjoy being pale :P) but i noticed getting some colour in my legs helped boost my confidence regarding my marks. you don’t need to worry, every one has them at some point – mostly around your age – they’re likely lying if they say they don’t (even athletic types – muscles grow big too) and anyway – you dont need to apologize to anyone because you’re growing. you’ll look back to and giggle and be grateful that you knew about a healthy lifestyle now before it was too late an did more damage. 🙂

  117. Rachel says:

    My thighs make me feel most self-conscious. I have been working out for a while now, and I feel like the´re not getting any slimmer!!!

    1. Marie-Hélène says:

      I feel the same way Rachel!

  118. Dolly says:

    I love your shorts! Where did you get them from?

  119. Celeste says:

    butt & thighs!

  120. Demi says:

    I have a lot of stretch marks and scars on my inner and outer thighs and on my butt. That’s also where I store most of my fat. 🙁 It’s hard to get rid of the fat on my inner thighs, but I’ll keep trying! I’m very happy with my body though. I feel and look better than ever thanks to you Cassey and I will keep improving! 🙂 Thank you so much! <3

  121. Amanda says:

    Stretch marks around my muffin top area! Makes me so self conscious. Haven’t worn a bathing suit in forever because of them..even if I’m in good shape!

  122. silvia d says:

    Inner thighs and love handles are my main problematic areas. I’m not very proud of my arms either, but i have lernt to accept I’m a tall girl with a bone structure and strong arms and legs

  123. Heather says:

    When I was at uni I drank quite a bit on a weekly basis for the first few years, then in final year when I was much busier I basically stopped drinking and my cellulite disappeared! I didn’t change my diet much at all, except maybe a bit less dairy.

    So girls, try cutting down on the booze, particularly beer and wine! Gin, soda water and fresh lime is a yummy low cal alternative if you really can’t not drink.

    1. Heather says:

      PS- I’m naturally pretty slim, you don’t need to be overweight to have the cottage cheese bum!

      1. MiinaMarie says:

        thats a good point a lot LOT of girls over look. how much they actually consume and how much havoc it’s wreaking on their body (not to mention dehydrating them) I’m part of weight watchers and it is quite a shock to see how many young adult girls don’t think that how much alcohol they intake really affects their body negatively. :S

  124. Kori says:

    I am so self-conscious of my lower belly pooch and the fat that sits right next the hip bones on the outside. It makes me absolutely crazy that I have to wear shapewear under my dresses that have a thinner fabric. And of course I want to wear short Nair-model shorts, but my fat kind of explodes through the leg-holes. AAAAAH. I don’t even want children, but I’m cursed to have the fat that makes child-bearing possible. Stupid nature.

  125. Milli says:

    Oh my, I collect sonething like 80% of my fat around my waist! So annoying, because I really feel everything else change and my muscles in my bum, legs and upper body become really visible really quickly but my abs remain stubbornly hidden and well, I’m mildly overweight and it’s all on my stomach and obliques which, in all honesty look really funny. But oh well, all I can do is keep working and eating clean!

  126. hind says:

    i really want to correct posture, because i can’t straighten my back. I am a bit hunchback, i think it’s because i was shy when i was young. Please cassey give me some idea to help me!
    Thanks a million
    love you

    1. Hannah says:

      Seconded! My muscles feel so tight and like they’ve been shortened from all the years of hunching!

    2. Anna says:

      Develop your upper body and core with strength training-it will make your posture gorgeous 😉

  127. Anisa says:

    My stomach and my upper thigh/bum area. Stretch marks. I try different oils etc to get rid of the stretch marks and well my goal is to tighten up everywhere with sticking to blogilates and eating right. But I still usually keep those areas quite covered cuz of the stretch marks.

    1. Hannah says:

      I don’t know if it makes you feel better but stretch marks eventually fade to the point that they’re barely noticeable. It’s just the wait that sucks.

    2. Heather says:

      Stretch marks such, yes, but we all have them so don’t be embarrassed 🙂 I get mine out all the time and people don’t even notice. Or they just compare 😉

  128. MajaSS says:

    I need to get rid of my bellyfat, and my upper back… I also have wierd legs, right over my knees, fat and muscles is sticking out from both sides! My whole family is like that, so I think it has something about the genes to do.. But I hate it.. It has getting better now when it’s more muscles and less fat, but I still need to work with my belly and my upper back.. But whoa! MY ARMS, oh, my arms, I didn’t see this coming, but I have gotten bigger triceps! Like, I see it, VERY good! So fun! 😀
    Gonna do the abtoberfest calendar now, didn’t do it yesterday, and I feel bad about that… I ate terrible food too… I’m not motivated at all these times, But I’ll try as hard as I can to keep going, even though I don’t want to! Wishing all of you popsters good luck <3 You are such a good motivated on the blogilates app! I love you! <3<3

  129. Femme says:

    Belly fat is actually my only issue, but it bothers me like hell! I’ve been exercising and watching my diet for months, and now everything is nicely firm exept for that ieniewienietiny area. I think it will just need that little extra push, because honestly, uptill now it wasn’t really hard for me. I loved the workouts and really enjoyed my diet, but now I will have to get serious:p But I believe in my body and I now that someday I wil get rid of that stupid little bump!

    1. Lindsey says:

      SAME!!! I’m an overall petite girl with toned legs from horseback riding and am generally in-shape and by no means need to lose weight! Just that tiny little belly pooch that is easy enough to hide when wearing clothing… EXCEPT for tight dresses and shirts (which I love cause of my hourglass waist and bust!) and in a bikini! But just that little belly pooch right there below the belly button…. I HATE IT AND WANT IT GONE!!!! lol

  130. Morgane says:

    I’m pretty insecure about my whole body but I mostly hate my calves. They’re big and bulky, it looks very disproportionate ! Most of it is actually muscle, so I’ll have huge calves even if I loose the fat around it 🙁 Also my stomach but I just tell myself I’ll work hard to have the stomach I want ! Anyway my calves are very annoying because I feel like I won’t be able to change them…

  131. Jade says:

    I am most concerned about my abs! I am technically underweight, my ribs are very visible, yet I don’t have good ab definition. I am worried about how much fat I have to lose to have abs & how sickly I will look once I lose it… is there any alternative? 🙁

    1. Anisa says:

      I’m in the same boat. What I’m trying to do is keep up my protein intake and make sure I keep to an exercise regimen to keep the fat off and to tone up because I still want to flatten my stomach. So far it’s going alright and I don’t find myself looking emaciated or anything. I’d recommend seeing a nutritionist or dietitian maybe. So you can eat right to gain what your body needs but also lean out the right way. Hope this helps.

      1. Jade says:

        Thanks for your suggestions & good luck!! I’ve been eating loads of protein, too. I hope maybe if the muscle builds up enough, I won’t have to cut as much fat. 🙂

  132. Vanessa says:

    My thighs :/ but it looks like most women have n issue with this area. Which would make sense because a women’s body will gain weight in a pear shape form.

  133. Kristi says:

    Add me to the list of belly complainers. I could live with the rest of my body but the unattractive belly drives me NUTS.

  134. Some people who don’t need to lose weight will still have cellulite. So don’t read this and assume that you are fat if you have a little.

  135. Licia says:

    My biggest problem is my belly fat and love handles. been trying to get rid of them for a while now but the process seems so slow.. How effective is the butt lift exercise and how soon will the effect be seen?

  136. Meggie says:

    my biggest problem area are my thighs because of my cellulite. tough it got a lot better since i started your workouts i’m still self-conscious about my legs once in a while. it’s a journey and i try to accept and love my body the way it is, but still work for it as much as i can 🙂 you helped me so much with my own self-esteem and i want to say thank you, cassey! sometimes i look in the mirror and just like what i see, this would’ve been impossible without you! it sounds cheesy, but i guess you really changed my life 🙂

  137. chandni says:

    my thighs are huge like big time.. i can tell u the measurements in pvt.. i have done like millions of squats in my life till now.. 🙁 (BTW! im 25) but i never lost an inch.. now ive lost 2 inches through diet n stuff together with exercise but then im worried about the breadth of my hips.. :O BELOW THE MUFFIN TOP LIKE AT THE START OF THIGH THOSE CURVES AREN’T REDUCING AT ALL OR I’LL SAY SLOW.. And every1’s suggesting to go with these cellulite creams.. even i was wondering how the hell it will work.. PLEASE HELP.. 🙁 I CAN DO ANYTHING TO MAKE IT CORRECT.

  138. Georgia says:

    My butt, hips and the area under the butt is my problem….I don’t know how long it will take me to get rid of my cottage cheese, but as long as Cassey is here I will TRY!!!

  139. Alina says:

    I’m very self-conscious about my cellulite in a quite unhealthy way. When I go really strong on exercise and eat healthy I do see the difference. My thighs and butt get really smooth. But the problem is, it’s very hard for me to maintain this lifestyle, specially because I’m still working on recovering from an eating disorder. So yes, definitely, the biggest achievement is to love yourself now matter how many cellulite you have on your body, and focus on improving your health and well being. With small steps you can be in a great shape and maintain it long term. It’s just so hard to accept that these changes don’t come in a month or two. So thank you, Cassie, for helping me get the motivation to keep going, despite my constante ups and downs! 🙂

  140. Hulu Hulu says:

    Arms, thighs and calves!

  141. Kriszti says:

    My biggest problem is my belly. I had a triplets last year, and this area is like an apron. I don’t know which workout could disappear that… :/

  142. Anouk says:

    My hips, thighs and ass are the problem areas for me. Through my whole body I am slim except for there, now ofcourse its the way im build and also my lack of exercise and healthy food but i am working on it one step at a time. And i have told myself that i first need to love the body i am in now and change the way i look at it and think about it before i can actually do something that will change the shape of it, cause ofcourse when working out your body changes. The most important thing for me is to get rid of my sugar addiction cause im a 100% that i have that, i just simply can not resist anything with sugar so i think its best to change that first and my eating habbits, although i do love vegestables and fruits i dont eat it as often as i wish to eat it. So yes, i have a large behind that i wish to be a tighter! (not smaller, i love big butts)

  143. Marianna says:

    Thank you Cassey, all of these were so informative!
    My problem area is my outer thighs!!!!! It’s like i have an extra round body part on both of my outer thighs, only its not detachable. I believe that this and my butt are my only fat storing areas, because my upper body and legs have always been thin!
    I want so badly to get rid of those thigh love handles that I hate!!! ….any suggestions?

  144. Katja says:

    My belly is my problem area. I don’t mind that much the cellulite, I don’t mind that my arms have a little bit of excess fat, because I’ve noticed the change in those areas while I’ve been working out. But my belly just doesn’t seem to get smaller. I mean, it is smaller than when I first started excercising, but it’s still not where I want it to be. I work my abs, I do cardio, I try to eat clean. I know that someday I will be where I want to be, and that I just have to keep going. But sometimes I still feel frustrated. But I won’t stop and I’m gonna get there. It just takes time, efford and patience. I can do it 🙂

  145. Ursula says:

    I would love to have slimmer thighs, and loose weight since I put on a lot of weight the last few months while I was writing my MA thesis. But since I have started to do the Blogilates calender I have become a lot more positive about my body and just more confident in general! So that’s my main motivation for working out ! I do hope I will loose weight again, but I love eating healthy and running, so it should be possible. Does anyone know how much you should run for weight loss? (at the moment I run about 40-50 minutes 6 times per week) Thanks!! 🙂

  146. Carmen says:

    I feel more positive since doing Pilates. I started a year ago doing Cassey’s videos, but just one per day, as I have back problems. Then in February I started doing the whole calendars and i went from 70 kg to 62, even though I still can’t do the entire things in a video. I keep working on it, my muffintop is gone, my legs are slimmer, but the lower ab won’t give up, inner and outer thighs as well… I will keep doing this. The calendar this month hopefully will bring results to my abs, it would be great if there were monthly calendars concentrated on a part of the body, like this one. And more exercises for abs and thighs.

  147. Jessica says:

    I’ve always been conscious about my boobs, because I find them huge, and some days before, after and during my period they get even bigger. Ugh.

  148. Anne says:

    I loved all the clever comments you got for this post on Facebook, where people expressed how we shouldn’t talk about excercise as a way to change our looks but a way to be healthy. Someone even pointed out how important it is to stop talking about cellulite as something we have to get rid of, and calling it things like “cottage cheese”, as this only reaffirms the thought of cellulite as being wrong and shameful. You’ve got some very clever fans, Cassey 🙂

  149. Zoya says:

    I eat fairly clean, have been doing pilates (and blogilates 🙂 ) regularly for almost 4 years now, and my weight is quite satisfactory. However, there seems to be nothing I can do about my legs, they were short and stocky when I was a child and they are just the same now that I’m in my early 30s. My leg muscles are really strong, but apart from the ever bulging one in front of my thighs (which makes them look even bigger and renders buying jeans that fit even more complicated), they are virtually invisible because of the fat and cellulite all over my legs that just won’t go away. My upper body is fine, can even look too bony if I lose too much weight, but legs just stay the same! I can’t do much cardio because I suffer from anxiety and a panic disorder that usually manifests as awful tachycardias, making cardio exercise VERY unpleasant experience for me. However, I try to walk as much as possible every day and am thinking of buying an elliptical (if I panic I prefer it to be at home). I would really LOVE to make my ridiculous chubby-baby legs look more toned but I’m out of ideas. Am I missing something? Does anti-cellulite massage really help?
    BTW, thank you so much for your blog posts and FABULOUS videos, Cassie, you are a truly fantastic instructor (and a fab lady in general).
    Lots of love all over from Serbia x

  150. JJ says:

    Thank you Cassey.
    Just, thank you for all the good that you do.
    And all your encouragement to help us be real, and truly LOVE, and be our best selves (not just on the outside, but on the inside as well)
    🙂
    <3

  151. No More XL says:

    Should I do this daily? I’m already on beginner’s calendar and maybe I can add this one after daily workouts?

  152. Kat says:

    I’ve always been super conscious of my thighs. Not because of cellulite but just because they always seemed proportionally much bigger than the rest of me and I always felt really self-conscious and “unbalanced”. Thankfully the fat in that area has reduced dramatically (taken, like, 6 inches off my hips!) since starting to do Pilates and eating clean, but I just wondered: is there a reason women are more likely to put on fat on the hip-area than men??

    1. Kim says:

      Hi Kat! I’m studying anatomy at university and I can tell you that women do carry more adipose tissue (fat) around their hips and this due to the nature of our reproductive hormones. Actually, one theory as to why we tend to carry more fat overall in comparison to men has to do with our bodies being primed to bear children. Oestrogen (or estrogen) reduces our ability to burn calories, resulting in the storage of fat at a rate higher than in men. Of course, how well an individual stores fat has to do primarily with genetics (and biological sex) and secondarily, with dietary and exercise behaviours. Also, fat carried on the hips poses less of a cardiovascular disease risk than if the same amount of fat was stored around the middle. This is because all that nasty fat is surrounding your organs whereas the padding on your hips doesn’t tend to surround any organs, it just sits on your bottom and makes you look pear-shaped.

  153. Sarah says:

    Belly fat! My lower ab area is hideous, so are my hips

  154. Christine says:

    THAT IS NOT FAIR! >:-(

  155. Pauline odongo says:

    I’m with Jillian.

    It’s right there in the middle. When facing me you won’t see it, i look like i have perfect flat abs but when i turn to the side i look preggers. So i have now increased cardio…..????????

    Oh Cassey, if you could see it you would pass out!

  156. Jillian says:

    For me it’s right the stomach area right between my hip bones I can’t seem to make it flat there no matter what excerises I do. Am I doing the wrong ones (lower ab) ??? Any suggestions ???

  157. Kelly says:

    I have a problem with my stomach/ tummy area. No matter what, its always like bulging out, and feels almost solid? i dont know how to describe it, but i do not like it at all. It feels pressured when i am bloated… 🙁 any effective workout for this?

  158. Anna says:

    Womens bodies were genetically created to store more fat than men. Because women are meant to breastfeed their babies. Breastfeeding burns hundreds of calories a day manufacturing milk. Women should always have cellulite, just not an unhealthy excess of it.

  159. Jessica says:

    My problem is I have a little bulge on my oblique muscle that I want to get rid of. You don’t see if from the back view of me, which I’m happy about. However it’s still visible looking straight at me in a bikini or through some types of clothes. Any advice on how to get rid of it?

  160. Alexandra says:

    It really works! Got rid of what i had 🙂

    fitnessfootprintblog.com

  161. Noa says:

    Well I don’t have celullite really but when I did I had it in the back of my thighs… What I am most self conscious about id the stubborn fat in between my thighs and in the inner part of my arms, and sometimes I feel like my legs are too muscular and I feel terrible in any type of pants, but I keep working my legs a lot because I really want to get rid of that inner thigh fat!
    Does anyone have advice for what I should do?

  162. HeatherAnn says:

    My biggest problem areas are my breasts. I’m really small in that department, but that doesn’t bother me. What bothers me is that my left breast is more than half a cup size bigger than my right! As if finding bras wasn’t already hard enough, now I have to find ones that don’t accentuate the size difference.

  163. Marie says:

    I don’t see the point in stressing over something that the overwhelming majority of us have. Little dimples on our thighs or butt aren’t life threatening. As long as we’re eating well and being active, that’s all we should care about. I’ve been really active for a few years now, and doing the whole clean eating thing, and I can tell you that my cellulite has not gone away one little bit. So I think some people just have to learn to live with at least a certain amount of it. You can’t always beat the biology of your body, unfortunately.

  164. Jennifer says:

    Hi Cassey!

    I have cellulite in my upper thighs, aka, “saddlebags” that I want to work on. I’ve started noticing that yoga has slimmed me down, but I would like to take it further. A saddlebag video would be much appreciated 🙂

  165. Ki says:

    I’m lucky in that I don’t have the cellulite problem anymore and I give all of the credit to diet and fitness! My issue is stretch marks. I gained weight SUPER fast in puberty, like my mom even took me to a doctor because the weight was coming so quickly. (40lbs in one summer vacation! That’s faster than pregnancy. O_O). Near the end of puberty (when I weighed 143lbs at 5 foot 5) I started to really get into fitness. I lost 40lbs, ironically, over summer vacation. I love my body now, stretch marks and all, but oh my God…I look like a very excited tiger tried to pet my lower body. LOL

    For anyone else that just got them, they DO fade a lot over time. 🙂

    1. becca says:

      Have you tried Bio Oil? Its great for reducing scars and stretch marks 🙂

  166. Chase says:

    ALL of my fat just goes to my tummy. I could have completely fatless legs, arms and back and STILL my pooch won’t go away!

    1. Christine says:

      i am EXACTLY the same!! no matter how much i eat clean and exercise, it just doesn’t seem to want to go away! 🙁

  167. Eliza says:

    Great article, Cassey! I always wondered the reason behind the dreaded cellulite…I do every type of workout imaginable and I still have it on the back of my thighs. I guess it’s time to do some of your videos and roll out my legs with the foam roller to get some circulation going!

  168. Casi says:

    Hey! Do you have any Kes$ha workouts? Would love to see that! Thanks!

  169. Sonja says:

    I’m one of those girls who only weighs 50kg but STILL has cellulite on the back of my thighs..
    How unlucky right !
    D:

  170. Leanne says:

    PREACH CASSEY. So many people think that slimming down can be done by using creams or going for treatments in beauty centres and it makes me so annoyed.

  171. It’s so ironic how guys really don’t care about cellulite and their bodies are built to prevent it, while girls hate it and are built to encourage cellulite. Bleh. 🙁

  172. Brandi says:

    My muffin top area! I want to be able to be naked and have one straight line running down my sides. Now i have some hills around the muffin top area, kinda where my pants lie on my hips and it makes everything just look bad. I won’t let my husband see me completly naked from behind 🙁

  173. Alexandra says:

    Thank you for the post about cellulite! So many people don’t understand that it is through diet and exercise to get rid of it!! xx

    fitnessfootprintblog.com

  174. PAo says:

    Interesting post Cassey!! I have to admit that my “problem area” is my abdominal area and my upper latin hips too (hahahha) and the back of my thighs. As I can see we all hate that annoying cellulite areas, but we are willing to do whatever it takes to make them disappear !! 🙂

  175. Ri says:

    I love this post! It is so very inspiring and also very motivating. I feel my biggest problem area is my thighs and also my stomach. Thanks for always pushing me to go harder and harder toward the goals I want to reach! I’m so grateful, you are very inspiring!

  176. Maricella Macias says:

    Major problem area is around my butt and where it meets my thighs. I run a lot, change up my paths, add some hills and do your videos of course but still see the cellulite when I sit down. I’m vegan and don’t really splurge on my chest days so I’m not sure if maybe I should kick up my workouts or I’ve been thinking of adding some “raw vegan ” meals to see how my body will change but any advice?

  177. Natalie says:

    I would love to do this workout…but my legs are too short to do the hammer squeeze. Is anyone else having that problem? These pilates rings are unusually large I think, but Cassey’s only 3 or 4 inches taller than I am, so I don’t know what the deal is. Oh well.

    My biggest problem area is my outer thighs. They look great in the mirror and my cellulite isn’t very visible at all. But when I sit down, particularly cross-legged (yikes), they bulge with fat. I know you can’t spot reduce, so I’ll just keep working on it and see if it improves in the next couple years. (Although Cassey, you’ve said before that spot reduction is a myth, but you still seem to promote it, like in this video. I’m understandably confused.)

    1. Ki says:

      You can’t spot reduce, but you can spot tone. She said that in a video once, but I can’t remember which one. It basically means that you can tighten up an area, but not lose weight in just one area. Besides, most of the videos are paired to work more than one area. Like the workout in playa del plank is mainly for arms and shoulders, but it helps my core too. 🙂

      1. Natalie says:

        Of course you can spot tone, but she claims that the best way to lose cellulite is losing fat.

  178. Kristin says:

    Lower abs and hips. I love your motivation though, it’s what I’ve been missing! You’re wonderful 🙂

  179. Joanie says:

    my arms but like forearms and my lower abs

  180. Henriette says:

    Thank you Cassey, I needed this! I’m quite fit but all fat goes to my butt/upper thighs so I’m self conscious about my cellulite. I’m not an expert but I have a feeling diet is the main factors for cellulite since even toned people have it. I’m not talked about eating healthy but I think all the processed/unnatural foods must have some sort of effect. I’m curious to see if a completely raw diet would change anything

  181. Jesse' says:

    My problem area is my arms. They are huge, and sag and I cant wear cute girl t-shirts cause my flab will hang out and show my stretch marks. I hate my arms. X_X I have cellulite but i’m not really worried about it. I am just going to keep trying to loose the weight and be happy in my own skin.

  182. Lam Lam says:

    I have the biggest thunder thighs ever! i do not like wearing shorts over the summer because the short just rises up and it just gets too sweaty and yucky! i wish I had your thighs 🙁 But I am working on it! <3 your videos!!

    sweetbubbliciouslove.blogspot.com/

  183. Jenny says:

    The more I did your workouts, the more lifted, firm, and toned my butt became, the more firm and toned my legs became, and the worse worse WORSE my cellulite got! Then I stopped exercising (I need to get back into it), and my cellulite isn’t as bad anymore. So what’s up with that?

  184. Christina says:

    I have read about this years ago, but I guess humans are born to deny the obvious xD I am grateful though, that my mom always forbade me to eat unhealthy stuff, cause now I have nearly no cellulite! Still, my problem areas are the lower abs (and my belly in general where I have the most fat percentage on my body) and my armpits…which are fat for no damn reason >.>
    Nonetheless, I wanna thank you Cassey cause you gave me reason to hope that I can change my body. I finished the beginners programm already and my body looks better than ever *_* Love from Greece! <3

  185. Rachel says:

    Really, my most self-conscious area has got to be my obliques/love handles. It’s mostly because i have pronounced hip bones which give me great waist curves, but if i don’t dress myself just right I feel like I look like I’m muffin-topping even though there’s not enough fat to be a muffin-top. Mostly it’s just me being self-conscious 😛 However, it’s just a part of my body and is what makes me unique <3

      I love your positive attitude 🙂 Wish I could be more like you hehe

    My lower abs are the BIGGEST problem area! I really need help in that area!! Who’s with me lol
    Thanks, Cassey <3

  187. Kendall says:

    I’m lucky to be one of those people who genetically have little cellulite(thanks Mom!) but my problem area is my belly!! I have to do lots of squats or my butt will get too small when I lose weight! Of course I lose some belly fat (was nice being a diet bet winner last month!) and I know you cannot spot reduce, but do you have any exercises to increase the hourglass shape? Thanks! 🙂

  188. Skyla says:

    Like most girls…The back of my thighs. I’m super skinny up top to the point I’m almost looking sickly and a good bit thicker on the bottom. Every bit of weight I lose comes from the upper part of my body. which pisses me off. I have abs, and I’m pretty toned on my lower half but that darn cellulite is a fighter! I WILL DESTROY YOU YOU HERE ME? ONE DAY!!! what really sucks is that i’m a shorty..so bigger thighs and donk make me look even bigger then what i am.. : / I know i’m not overweight but i’m really self-conscious about the back of my thighs. I’m 5’3, 108 pounds, and my thighs are 21 inches wide at the largest part.. I know i need to lose more fat on my thighs in order to get rid of my cellulite but all of it’s coming off my top…my boobs are deflating with each workout that i do. anyone else have this problem??

    1. Rie says:

      I do… I’m 5’4″ and I weigh 122 and all of my weight that I’ve been losing has been off of my top half, and I have rolls of fat on my thighs! And that makes for some pretty disgusting cellulite. 🙂 We’ll just have to keep going and work our legs to death! build some muscle, and eradicate the cottage cheese!

      1. Skyla says:

        yes ma’am! I’m ready for some butt n legs tomorrow, how bout you?! We’re gonna defeat this stupid cellulite! One of the reasons I love this site is that girls help each other out, make one another feel better, and are honest 🙂 Really keeps our heads up i think 🙂

      2. Rosa says:

        Same with me, the first thing that has gone was my boobs, I had 34C boobs and now can barely fit a 32B and shrinking =( only thing I miss about being chubbier loll

    2. Sammi says:

      Hi skyla, I’m 24 and only 5ft.. First thing to go was my boobs too but after a year of eating well and exercise my bottom half is looking much better. be consistent and you’ll see results. Yeah I have no boobs but I’m now healthier than ever and have learnt to embrace that. Now at least I have no issue jumping up and down in cardio classes while my bigger busted friends have problems. Gotta see the positives 🙂

  189. Sam says:

    I am so self conscious about my inner thighs, I have slim body but I have always had big thighs, They also stick out a lot at the front, which makes wearing leggings/jeggings/treggings very difficult as it is COMPLETELY unflattering :/ I’m not bothered about the thigh gap that so many people seem to want, I just want to be able to wear disco pants without being self conscious i’m just not really sure what I can do about it. HELP!

    My butt 🙁 its just not proportionate to my body. I find it to big. I mean guys like it, but I don’t like them looking there. And its hard to find cute clothes that don’t outline it in someway

    1. Skyla says:

      Big booTAYS are awesome! More power to you girl 🙂 be proud of what your mama gave you. I don’t blame you for not wanting dudes staring at it tho lol

    2. PAo says:

      I know what you mean somethings having a big butt may be uncomfortable because of the way guys look at you…

  191. bárbara says:

    in my thighs, Cassey!!! 🙁 and yes, I blame unhealthy food — I used to binge eat and sometimes I stil RELAPSE! ugh but I’m working on it.

    1. Olga says:

      I had a binge eating disorder all through high school and when I got to college it really got bad. I got rid of it for about 2 years and thought I was in the clear and would never have to deal with it ever again, but now the relapses have been more and more frequent. I know EXACTLY what you mean, Cassie keeps me motivated, strong, and on track, I hope she does the same for you!

  192. Adriana says:

    Hey Cassey! My problem area is muffin top, when I wear spandex shorts and a crop top to do exercise it looks horrible because it is like if i would have 3 curves in my hips( one over the spandex, one below it and another one like where my underwear ends) and well people consider me skinny so i dont know why it looks like that 🙁 ! please help me cassey! how can i get that problem area!

  193. Andi says:

    I started out strong this month for Abtoberfest but I went to a music festival this weekend and was too tired to do anything! My legs and butt are my problem areas and after looking around at all the girls at this festival (both fit and not so fit) I realized just how much I wanted to get my body back in shape like it used to be. I wanna build my muscle back up and lose all the fat I’ve accumulated doing nothing but practicing in disordered eating. I’m a nutrition major and I should be better at living a healthy lifestyle. Your website has given me that last kick in the butt towards the right direction. Thank you!!!!

  194. Kristen says:

    I heard that the reason women have more cellulite than men is because their skin is thinner?

  195. Sarah says:

    Thanks for this post Cassey! I just want to say to all the girls out there who think they can’t get rid of cellulite, that you really can. Seriously. Just like it says in this post, you have to work hard, eat clean, and don’t give up!
    I am a pretty thin girl, but I had a big cellulite dimple on one of my outer thighs. It was really gross and noticeable on my otherwise smooth legs. After 6 months of exercise and clean eating, that dimple is gone and my legs look 100 times better! Seeing these results for myself gives me a lot of motivation to continue to be healthy.
    Be patient. Love yourself. & Don’t give up!

  196. Jozzy says:

    This makes such great sense. Lots of girls ask me why I have no cellulite, and I know their bewildered because I have very large legs compared to many of my girlfriends, but I try to explain that my legs are mostly muscle which is why I can get away with short shorts 🙂 however, I have a question…is their any exercise that helps reduce already exciting stretch marks, or any other way to get rid of them?

  197. Rachal says:

    I love cassey! She’s so honest and motivational! I don’t like the back of my thighs, but I will look better! 🙂

  198. Kelsie M says:

    I literally cannot get rid of my cellulite, but I suppose its okay because most girls have it ! Its not just some weird thing I have, which makes me feel a bit better! 🙂 I have reduced my body fat a lot in my journey this past year but it will not budge!! Another problem area….. love handles!! Aaarrghh

  199. Lisa says:

    Hi cassey!.. And everyone else too 🙂
    I dont tend to get too much cellulite on the back of thighs and bum. I get it in a much more irritating area… My quads 🙁 ..i think id rather have it on my bum and thighs to be honest! To make matters worse i have a knee ligament injury which means i cant do any exercises that are too ‘heavy duty’ and cant do full squats, just half ones. If anyone has any exercise suggestions i would be eternally grateful 🙂 but would just like to say that only a very small percentage of women arnt affected by cellulite so we might as well just love ourselves and accept our lumpy bums regardless 🙂 🙂 🙂 xx

  200. Becca says:

    I’m a runner, I run about 30-40 km per week and a half marathon per month, and I CANNOT get rid off that bitchy cellulite 🙁
    I blame genetics, so I guess you are doomed after all

    1. Krystal says:

      I’ve been told that it’s not simply just cardio (though it can help for some), but also strength training. The myth is that cellulite only “plagues” people who are overweight, but I personally know many skinny girls who have cellulite–even when we were in high school! I did more reading up about cellulite over the summer, and have been told that it’s about the strength training you do for that specific group of muscles in your body that tones it up. Lunges, squats, basically Cassey’s butt and leg videos. Don’t be discouraged!!

  201. Sophia says:

    Thanks for this information!!! What information/work outs do you have on getting rid of love handles??? Pencil skirts and right dresses are no-gos for me because of my love handles!

  202. Alexandra says:

    This workout is amazing! i feel like I’m dying but in the best way. I don’t care about getting rid of cellulite a 100% I just want a nice round bootey and muscly tights. love y’all!

  203. Sandra says:

    Sorry guys, It’s me again, but with a better grammar!
    Hey, all!
    Let me first tell you guys, that Cassey really read my mind with this post … lol!
    Cassey, just a few days ago I went to go shopping some short pants for the spring coming up in here, South America. So when I put that georgeous shorts on me, I said to myself, “Houston, we got a problem!” The fact of seen my back of my legs in that way, just horrorized me cause’ just few months ago I was in such a perfect fit that in this past months I didn’t realize how bad -BAD- food can do this to my body. So I was wondering how the heck! am I’m gonna do to get all this fat and cellulite butt off on me! I was searching a little bit, plus, I have recently sign up for my Pilates class again, and having an “auto-diet”, eating things in a clean way, so that I can be more fit in the months to come. However, and this is SO IMPORTANT TO ME, my mind is cheating on me telling me that the results are not coming as fast as I wish, and that I can’t loose the weight that I want to loose. – I’m like 4 or 5 kg. more of my ideal weight-. I’m trying drinking more water, eating salads like crazy, no carbs, but I guess is not enough.
    Hope you can do a post of how tell our minds to hear our voice that tells us that we actually can do it, and inspired us to believe more in that, I’m not gonna loose the faith that I can do it, but the thing is when is gonna happend?

  205. Sophie says:

    That little area just above the hamstrings and below the butt. Also either side of the butt, below the hips. Brings me down every time I put on ma jean shorts 🙁

  206. Silvia says:

    I don’t feel that desperate about cellulite, but I notice I’m getting new stretch marks.. And I have read there is no way to remove those so I am feeling really bad.. I moisturise my skin, drink water and I am slimming down, not gaining weight, why is that then?

    1. Sonya says:

      You get stretch marks from gaining and losing weight so there is really no way to avoid them unless you stay the same way your whole life. Some people have more visible stretch marks and you can’t really get rid if them, you can only make them less visible. I find the easiest way to do this is just to moisturizer everyday. So keep going with what you’re doing and hopefully you should see results soon.

  207. Amy says:

    I would venture to say some people cannot get rid of their cellulite. I mean some people are more prone to it than others. Sure you can reduce it but for some people, unless you literally have no fat on your butt or legs, the cellulite will be there. I am one of those people. Even at a very low weight and working out quite a bit, I still had cellulite!

    1. Joan says:

      This is true. I’ll attest to that. I posted this on FB, but I’ll say it here, too. I have always had cellulite no matter what my body fat percentage has been, and I’m an ectomorph. Lowering body fat to a still healthy percentage does not guarantee you’ll completely get rid of it. If you are prone to it, chances are you are going to have it either way. And that’s OK. It’s the way our bodies are built.

      I think part of the reason why women feel so subconscious about cellulite is the rhetoric that surrounded, exacerbated by media and also the fitness industry. Cellulite is normal. It’s actually more normal to have than not to. I don’t know where women got the impression that it is the other way around. Oh well.

  208. Ellen says:

    Such perfect timing, I was just about to tweet you to see if you knew how to get rid of cellulite!

  209. Anastasia says:

    Thank you for such an informative post! I really want to get rid of my cellulite in time for summer here in Australia 🙂
    Thank you for helping my change my lifestyle and putting me back into shape! You’re seriously the best, come back to Sydney soon! xoxo

  210. Andrea says:

    I used to have a great body, but I just recently had twins and I gained 50lbs throughout my pregnancy. It’s been very hard for me to get back in shape and I have no idea what to do anymore. What’s a good way to start losing body fat all over? Thanks!

    1. Emily says:

      Andrea,
      The best way to lose fat all over is to do higher intensity cardio exercises. You want to get your heart rate up! Pilates is excellent for strengthening and toning but to lose weight you need to do some cardio workouts alongside pilates. Blogilates has some great cardio workouts if you want somewhere to start otherwise swimming, jogging or cycling are all excellent. This and eating sensibly will get you right back on track. Good luck!
