reshaping spoon body type

question:
i know there is no way to effectively spot train, but i was wondering if it is possible to manipulate my body shape through directed exercise?
my problem:
i am kind of a 'rake' on top: very long lean arms, 32A, small waist.... but i have always struggled with my lower half... ie: large inner things (no saddlebags, thankfully) and i seem to carry the extra weight in my bottom. unfortunately, this weight is definately no tlean muscle. my hips are still pretty lean, it just falls apart below my belly button. i run alot and do aerobics classes... as far as weight training is concerned, should i avoid or do squats (i have heard conflicting advice on this), cut back on high-impact cardio (like running)? i am 5'6" and 115 lbs. thanks. also, i have recently started eating carbs again (holy energy boost), but i dont want to go overboard... i have read on these boards i should eat carbs and protein together at every meal... roughly how many grams of carbs should i aim for? thanks.

Re: reshaping spoon body type

Training certain muscles with weight training will increase their size, so for example if you do upper body and you gain muscle there, your body will be better proportioned.

Cardio is good to lose fat, if you do it the right way and eat well. Protein is very important when doing weights.

Squats are great exercises, but unless you want bigger leg muscles I wouldn't recommend doing too many of them. Do them moderately and your legs will get firmer because of mild muscle gain.
