I have a fat ass and fat thighs (pear shape)(i'm working on it though! ;-).
Cellulite has always been an issue for me - my butt is dimpled and has a flat section and the back of my thighs look like orange peel!
Ever since I've start working out I've noticed that there has been a slight reduction in cellulite - but will it ever go away...like when I shrink in size? (I'm following a diet with my exercise).
Did you have major cellulite? Did it go away? I see alot of women here that look FANTASTIC and I don't see celluite in their pics....how did you do it? Or am I genetically destined to forever have orange peel skin?

Though I have never been overweight, as I got out of my teens i started to notice some dimples on the backs of my thighs (a discovery made much to my horror while doing one of those pretzel-y positions necessary to shave ones legs). I have heard from others and am hoping its true as well that lowering ones bf % and building muscle with tighten things up and can get rid of what appears to be the start of my 'orange peely wonder'. Really looking forward to what others have to say on this one, especially ones who have experienced it and (hopefully) seen a change.

The only thing that makes it go away is by replacing it with muscle. That's why you'll still see "skinny fat" people with cellulite. They are skinny but all made up of fat, hence cellulite. I agree that for some people it is extremely hard to make it ALL go away. But it does go away with lots of hard work. Diet and heavy leg training filled with lots of squats, deadlifts, etc. will make a tremedous difference
