Overall weight loss: Your gender & heredity determine where fat lies in you body - do you notice a family pattern? However. Overall weight loss, through eating choices & exercise, is your plan. Add a resistance program (like weights or elastic bands), & a flexibility program, like yoga, to improve your shaping & sense of fitness, gracefulness & confidence. And get adequate sleep. Hope that helps.

Spot fat loss does: not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some will probably be leg, hip, thigh fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Engage in regular aerobic exercise (i.e. running, swimming, Nordic track, bicycling, kickboxing, walking, cross country skiing, hiking, etc.). Weight training also helps
