One area of the body that quite a large percentage of women hate is their thighs. So let's give you a few tips to start losing weight from your thighs.

A fantastic and excellent form of exercise which can be completed in the comfort of your own home is using a skipping rope.

Most good stationery bikes will have the total calories burnt function, which is excellent at working out the amount of weight you are going to lose just through exercising. One pounds is equal to 3500 calories, is if you burn off 7000 calories a week through exercise this will equate to a two pound weight loss for the week just by exercising.
Another good exercise for losing fat from around the thighs is squats.
