how can I get smaller hips/butt?

Anybody know good excercises or general tips for taking a few inches off your back end? I sadly got my mother's wide hips and large butt, and I'd like to slim that area down a bit. I don't need to take weight off anywhere else, though.

Nope. Can't do it. If you are carrying excess weight in your hips and butt, you need to lose weight, period. You can't "spot tone" any particular area. Of course, that will be the LAST area where you lose weight. It's a woman thing... kind of like guys carry their excess weight around their waist.

You'll just have to lose weight overall as you can't spot reduce (contrary to the craze in the 80s where all the exercise videos were all about spot reduction)

Its an unfortunate part of life that we can't control the first place we gain weight or first part we lose weight. Everytime you do one thing it has a corresponding affect on another part of the body.

Ie I have a friend that gets a really fat face when she's overweight but when she loses weight her head looks gigantic!!

Me too, I like to have a little weight to keep my curves but then my stomach won't go flat, but when I lose a little and my stomach goes flat I lose it off my face and I look a little gaunt!!

Sigh. You just can't win!!
