My advice is this:

In order to lose weight in the thighs and calves area, you need to do cardio. Running, jogging, speed walking, whatever for at least one hour, 4-6 days a week

for your breast area, I would recommend push ups. At least 30 reps, 4-6 days a week

you can do other exercises and other things, but these are the only ones that I can think of that don't require any kind of equipment.

Best of luck!

Thumbs down

You cannot spot reduce any specific area without surgery. While running may tighten and strengthen your legs and calves - and pushups will do the same for your chest, neither will spot reduce. You must exercize, exercize, exercize!! - Also, muscle is metabolically more active than fat - I know you said you don't want to touch weight equipment - but increasing your muscle mass slightly will boost your metabolism so your body will burn fat quicker. Liposuction is the only way to spot reduce. Women tend to loose weight/fat from their breasts first, so that would help you out in the one area. Unfortunately though, thighs-buttocks,and legs are the last and hardest place for women to shed the punds.
