It all evened out for me, so honestly, there IS hope yet. I started off as a 22 bottom and 18 top and ended up as a 4 bottom and 4/6 top. But for a while there, I really was shaped like a bowling pin because I lost from the head down first!
The last 20 - 30 pounds came 100% off my hips, butt, and thighs. If I had thrown up my hands in despair before I got to goal, I would have ended up as a small on top and a 12 or 14 or so on the bottom -- a very, very weird shape.
Let me check my measurements ... I lost:
10 inches off my bust
13.5 inches off my waist
and 22 inches off my hips
So even if you're a pear now, you might not end up that way!!
Edited to add: Cheryl, my starting hip measurement was 57", right in between what you think yours was.
