The thighs are part of a woman's anatomy that can make it easier or more difficult for women to walk in and out of a clothing shop with a new wardrobe.

It makes a woman look sexy when her thighs are proportionate to the rest of her body. If they are, she feels more confident in her every move, and men see this as very attractive.

That is why some women do their best to have thinner thighs. Some celebrities say that the thighs are the easiest areas to slim down.

Doing so will not only allow you to wear skinny jeans or short shorts, but it will also transform you in your own mind. You'll have a smaller dress size and a more colorful social life. If you know how to make your legs thinner, you could walk around in those heels and show off your tight, sexy legs. Slimming your legs and thighs means you won't have to worry about cellulite or jiggly steps.

I am full of sitting down moments, how can I be more active?

Its cold where I live and hard to workout at the moment, can you suggest a way to become more active and boost my metabolism?

Actually, cold areas makes us more active: we eat more and walk and move faster outside to keep ourselves warm. Personal experience dictates that living in an area where winters are at -25 F and summers are +100 F, it is always easier to work out and be active during colder days. However, the organism begins to store some fat for the winter too, which is normal; and the organism will drop the weight closer to summer. Boosting metabolism is primarily achieved by going to the gym. Do not work out at home, as your indoor temperature may be too low and hurt your muscles; or you will be just too reluctant to keep up with the workout program. Gyms always keep indoor temperatures at the level where it is possible to keep your muscles and ligaments warmed up. After a 1-3-hour workout (1 hour for most intense programs), your metabolism will be very high for a day or two. To boost your metabolism after the gym, eat healthy foods, drink water, and visit sauna. To stimulate your metabolism even more, eat food in small portions every hour or two.
