Do you have it? Some of you gals are a lot younger than me so I don't know. Has anyone gotten rid of it? Have any secrets you could share?

This is the one thing that really is driving me crazy. I feel like I am making progress everywhere but my stubborn cellulite on the back of my legs. I have been thinking about getting some glucosamine supplements because I've read that they can help, but I haven't actually tried that yet. Mostly I'm just hoping that I burn off the fat and it goes away. It has gotten A LOT better since I lost weight. I was about 30 lbs heavier than I am now, before I had Shawn. And I can tell a difference now, but it's still there.

I've got some on my tush and backs of my legs too. I've noticed it is getting better as I loose weight. That is the only thing I have tried so far though.

I had some on the backs of my legs but after Jacob was born and I went on weight watchers I lost all my baby weight plus 10 more lbs and the cellulite on the backs of my legs is basically gone. I'm still not as toned as I would like but really glad the cellulite went away.

It does get a little better as I lose weight. I have it on my bottom half too. I have heard it is hereditary. I have also heard that it has something to do with fat cells....and that if you eat fattening foods the cells expand creating a cellulite appearance and vise versa. Some people have more fat cells than others...genetics...

Butt and backs of my legs here too. I heard that exfoliating with coffee grounds might help...

Thank you Kiliki for my beautiful siggy!

I have it, too. Mine has gotten worse since I got pregnant and had my daughter. I'm hoping losing weight will help me. Sorry I'm no help!

Yep, have plenty of cellulite over here...on the back of my legs and my butt. It's lovely. Some of it is genetic. I remember my genetics professor talking about the elasticity in fat cells, that after age 18, something happens and that to some extent, if you have it, it won't all go away...but that was so long ago, I don't remember exactly what he said, just that it wasn't hopeful for me to get rid of it lol!

Thanks Jaidynsmum!!

Got it here, too, thighs and butt. When I first started losing weight it actually seemed to get worse, like there was less fat so it was packed less firmly or something, LOL! I try not to let it bother me. I probably shouldn't share this but my teen DD already has some. I'm such a bad mom, seeing that actually made me feel a little better! She is most definitely not overweight so obviously it is at least partly genetic.

I haven't tried long enough to see if it actually works, but I read that cutting wheat from the diet will get rid of it.
