Noa. Without being blunt - learn to love your girlfriend's legs. The ankle thickness is largely genetically determined (check her mom's ankles). Of course one can work on one's body composition (i.e. the ratio of fat to muscle and bone) with diet and exercise but your babe is a provincial swimmer - she probably gets 8 hours of vigorous activity a week, so unles she is eating a ton of food everyday then she is probably in good shape.

What's her personality like? Does she have nice eyes? What's her number?
