I hate hate hate my legs
Everywhere north of my belly button, I am really thin and toned (to the point where I get "You are eating, right?" comments).
But unfortunately, I have some of the most awful looking legs in the world. Thick thighs, doughy kneecaps, chunky calves, and, if that wasn't enough, really bad cankles.
If I wear jeans or long skirts (and they are all I ever do wear), I look pretty damn good, but god forbid I wear something that shows even a little stretch of leg.
I want to wear a swimsuit proudly, I want to not freak out about getting naked with a guy. And summer is coming again soon.
Look, I've accepted that I'll never be a pantyhose model but I am convinced there must be a way to get my legs looking nice.
I need practical suggestions on how to get my legs looking good for summer. I'm mainly concerned about my kneecaps, chunky calves, and cankles. I can't afford surgery, but I have a lot of willpower and motivation, and I will try any diet, exercise, and creams or potions that might work.
I know certain kinds of exericse will help, but I absolutely do not want to do anything that will build the muscle on my calves in a way that it will make them chunkier! how can I avoid that?
I'm assuming nothing can be done about my cankles, they are all skin and bone and it seems there is not fat around them I could work off. But if I could get firm bony kneecaps and moderately slender calves, I'd be stoked.
Thank you so much!
