Winter for some of us means gaining extra weight and part of this weight gain is natural if you live in colder climates. Part of weight gain is being surrounded by food and stuck indoors and also emotional overeating. But why deprive yourself of a little fun?
The important thing is to not stress about weight gain and to find healthy ways to enjoy your body – to feel cool and attractive no matter what cycle you are going through. You can also buy women’s sweatpants with elastic ankles via https://www.inkdgeneration.com/bottoms/
The odd thing is that my thighs are getting larger in proportion to the rest of me. So another thing to understand is why is weight gain congregating in certain parts of your body. Lots of weight loss experts say that you can't "spot reduce" your weight loss.
But I've noticed that belly dance, which exercises my emotions and feelings just as much as my body, DOES change the shape and look of my body. So I disagree with these fat-loss experts who traditionally focus on gym based fitness.

Have a look how your thighs or other body parts respond – possibly by holding extra weight.
Everybody is different – but in general – your body over the years will have patterns – which you can become aware of and start to manage, and relieve emotional inhibitions that block your natural vitality and happiness.
So one of my remedies to feel good in my body and cool in my sweatpants (even if they are a little tight at the moment) is to enjoy the fullness of my thighs. Fortunately, I have trained my partner to also help me in this, by encouraging him to feel the shape of my thighs. And I still work out to make sure I keep the tone of my thighs. As I work out, I see the space between the legs, the line of the inside thigh and
