We all have : different body types. It doesn't mean that something is wrong w you. Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may be leg 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 or kickboxing.
