Hi stressed

No, unfortunately not, the reality is that the thickness of the ankles is only partly determined by exercise and weight. Mostly, it's a skeleton issue - the size of the joint is determined by the bone. So the only small difference is that you can maybe try to lose some weight, but that's going to be marginally effective. SO I hate to give you bad news, but it's mostly genetic.
