hmmm nasty stuff, embarrassed to say i've got it <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/frown.gif"&gt; and have had it for yrs even tho i'm only 17! it wont go away and its so annoying.

Apparently 90% of women over 20 have it though, so i guess i'm just an early developer <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/wink.gif"&gt;

why do u get it and how do u get rid of it?
does ne1 else have it? i never go swimming because of it. That and my thighs. <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/tongue.gif"&gt;

There's a girl in my mirror
I wonder who she is
Sometimes I think I know her
Sometimes I really wish I did

    I'm gonna sound thick but what does it look like?

    just looked at a site n it says that once it 'sets in' not much can be done about it, however excersise and weight control help keep it at bay. Oh n u can have liposuction to try n get rid of it lol.

    You must be able to buy creams and stuff tho?

    Cellulite's just fat, fair enough it may be harder to get rid of, but at the end of the day that's all it is!
    *positive attitude in case I get it*

    I'm 24.

    hehe yeah exactly the same for me. ive got a thing a bout my stomach at the mo actually, its got all big and bulgy and podgy and nasty, but i mainly avoid swim suits due to the thighs.

    ive heard some kind of massage can help get rid of it, and body brushing or using one of them body exfoliator puff things, always brushing towards the heart when youre in the shower. but i guess exercise to tone up the muscles makes it less likely youll have fat, and therefore cellulite. typical, the only exercise i like is swimming, cant do that coz of the cellulite! vicious circle!! hehe

    Burn baby burn!

    a really good way of gettin rid of cellulite is to drink LOADS of water,every day.coz it washes out all the toxins and stuff etc etc.i have cellulite,and im a size 6.it is fat,thats kinda collected in one place,normally bum and thighs,is that right? but i dont really know!!! exercise and water!!oh and massaging ur thighs,kinda pushing it down to your lower leg,thats the action ur ment to do.

    there are tablets u can get 2,but they are tres cher!!(very expencive!!)
