13. Get Motivated
This tip is one tip that is a must. Without doing this, you are not going to lose that fat fast. You see, motivation is the key to everything, including losing leg fat. If you would really like to succeed, then strong motivation is something you will be in need of.
Think of something that might motivate you 3 times a day – it might be pictures of celebrities with gorgeous legs, a pair of skinny jeans you no longer fit it, the legs of the girl from 2B apartment you wish you had etc. These thoughts are not very pleasant, on the contrary, they kind of make us feel bad, but that’s exactly what we need. We need to feel the pain, the lack of something we truly want and only that bad feeling will give us enough strength to achieve our goal – make the perfect legs happen to us!
12. Stock on Patience
Patience is another key that you will need. Yes, I understand that you would like to lose that leg fat in a day or two, but let’s face it, it is not going to happen like this. You will need to work at it and put a lot of effort into losing that leg fat. So, prepare yourself for a 1 month minimum time. And don’t get disappointed when you do not see the results the next day.
11. Exercise. Exercise. Exercise.
Obviously, you need to do exercises. There are many different types of exercise that you will be able to do in order to get rid of that leg fat. Yes, at first, those exercises may seem a bit tough and tiring. However, once you get used to them, in no time, those exercises will be easy. Besides, after a couple of weeks, you will start to see the results of work you put into it. The most effective exercises are the following: jogging, fast walking, sprint running for short distances, sit-ups, swimming, dancing, pilates, aerobics.
10. Create a Routine
10. Create a Routine
I recommend you create a routine and stick to it. If you only do your exercises once a week, then this is not going to work. I recommend you choose at least four days a week to do the exercises. If you neglect to do them, then it will take a much longer time to get those skinny legs you have been wanting for so long.
9. Ballet Squats
9. Ballet Squats
Have you ever heard of ballet squats? These are a form of exercise that targets your lower body, including your thighs and legs. I have personally used this type of exercise and that is how I lost weight. To start this, all you have to do is bend your knees as you are making sure your torso is upright, You should be holding your hands on your waist or out in front of you. Your knees will have to travel in line with your toes. You should lower yourself as low as you can go. Make sure you do not hurt yourself with this one and keep the back straight.
8. Reverse Lunge

It’s another exercise that many individuals have used in order to lose weightquickly in their legs. Start out with your feet about eight inches apart and your torso erect. Take an easy step backward. Lower your hips until your front thigh is parallel or straight to the floor. The position of your knee should be directly over your ankle and foot.
I also highly recommend running. Running is a great exercise when it comes to losing weight not only in the legs, but in the rest of the body as well. It will increase your heart rate and it’s a good aerobic activity. Running is also going to speed up that metabolism.
6. Ride a Bike
Riding a bike is another important exercise to do if you are looking to lose weight. When there is nice weather outside, why not ride your bikes? You may also go to the gym and exercise on the bikes they have there.
5. Team Sports
Playing sports is also a great idea. And it’s also a lot of fun! It will speed up your heart rate and help you burn fat off of your whole body, including your legs. Some good sports include basketball, soccer and football.
If you like swimming and you have access to a pool, then look no further – it’s not only a great workout for every single muscle in your body, it’s also the greatest way to get your whole body toned and lose that leg fat that’s been bothering you for so long. And it’s also very pleasant, so you practically kill all the birds with one stone! :)
3. Drink Water
Drinking water is another important factor. With that thought in mind, you need to avoid those fizzy drinks as they are no good for you. Nor they are good for those legs of yours. Start drinking 8 glasses of water a day and in just a few weeks you’ll see how much faster the weight loss is going.
2. Eat Healthy
By reducing your calories and eating healthy foods such as fruit, vegetables, oatmeal. white meat, whole grain foods, you will be doing your body good. And you will be shedding off those pounds by weeks. You’ll see!
1. Never give up
If you do not see improvements in your legs in a week, then you should not give up. Those improvements will start to show through in no time, if you use these tips, so don’t panic, and keep doing what you are doing. You perfect legs are almost there!
PS: please don’t forget to measure your legs in the problem areas and write that down. Check your progress every 3 days with the measuring tape. Good luck!
