Thunder thighs are good for you

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health/6132516/Thunder-thighs-could-protect-against-heart-disease-and-early-death.html

Researchers found that people with a thigh circumference less than 24 inches (60cm) are more likely to develop coronary disease and die early than those with more chunky thighs.

However, the study, published in the British Medical Journal, also concluded that once you get above the 24 ins limit, there was no major benefit in having even wider legs.
