To look at me, you wouldn't think I had a problem with fat cells making that awful "cottage cheese" pattern on my thighs or rear. After all, I'm a petite 5'4" tall and weigh a healthy 115 pounds. But thanks to years of terrible eating habits, I have indeed built up a plethora of fat cells that create that highly recognizable, totally unattractive look whenever I sit down. I'll be the first to admit that it's disgusting, and there's little comfort in knowing that 90 percent of woman suffer from the same problem. All I'm interested in now is learning how to get rid of cellulite so I can enjoy swimsuits and summers again without hiding my thighs.
