Cellulite and fat legs
3

PennyPittstop · 09/09/2019 10:25

I'm a comfort eater. I suffer from depression. The last year has been epically shit and I have eaten my feelings every day. I'm slowly coming out the other side 2 1/2 stone heavier. My legs are like tree trunks and I have never had cellulite like this before. What's the best way to slim legs down and shift orange peel? We're going into short skirt and boot season and I feel like a beast. I'm trying to make myself drunk lots of water and I'm back on SW. My weight is now adding to my depression so I need to do something about it ASAP.

Exercise. Provided you eat to lose weight and exercise, the muscle will hide the cellulite.

Sorry that fired off too quickly.

Exercise will also help with the depression as well. Start small, go for walks, get a few jogging steps in, check out exercise videos on youtube. I love BodyFit by Amy, her videos are free or you can sign up to special programmes with a Facebook support group at a marginal cost. I am on the final week of the Four Weeks to Fat Loss one, and I can 100% see the difference already.

Oh and never look at yourself in the mirror hating your image, be kind to yourself and concentrate on getting stronger rather than your looks. Being stronger will obviously help with the looks but the main thing to fix is the mindset. :)

Walking is great for legs, and to combat depression

Go for lots of walks
