Default Losing more fat on one side?

Strange question I know. But now that I'm working out a lot and toning, I can tell that different parts of my party are not as proportionate as they were. It's not all on one side either.

For example- I have a small roll under my boobs, the left side of the roll is smaller than the right. but the love handles on my right side are smaller than on my left. Same thing with my legs, upper thighs left is smaller than right, but then my left calf is bigger than my right. Back fat is the same too, right side is less than left.

Is this common? Does anyone else have this too? At first I thought it maybe one side is stronger than the other but the sides flip flop. Any suggestions? Or will it even out in time?

lol that's funny! I didn't even realize it. I was going to change it when you told me, but no I'll leave it. My body is a party baby!!! lol It's one of those freudian slips. I am feeling good that the fat rolls are shrinking.

Thumbs down I know...

I am glad someone mentioned it.
I also realized it. One side of my “party” seems bigger than other. I can really see it on my arms and legs. I don’t know if I would explain it as losing more fat in one side, but maybe building more muscle on one side...
I don’t want to look “deformed"
Does someone can explain it? Please...

Your body loses weight however it wants to. Just like people always say, "you can't spot reduce!" it's the same concept, I think.

Yeah, my left upper arm is wayyyy bigger than my right. Like, when my arms are straight, the fat kinda blobs over the elbow on my left arm, but not on my right. It's nasty!

That's so funny!! I didn't even notice it said "party". I just read it as 'body'.
I would think it all evens out in the end. Congrats on your loss!!!

My right cupcake has always been bigger than my left! If my right looked like my left I'd be a happy camper!

I haven't noticed a huge proportion difference of my "party" , but strenth-wise, I'm soooo one-sided! I'm a waitress and do all my lifting with my right arm and bending down with my right leg. I have much more strength on my right side!

You should see me (try) doing pushups. LOL! I can go almost all the way down with my right arm, but my left? I look like an awkward turtle...hahaha

I recently got a personal trainer and although I didnt feel as though I had a problem with being different on different sides, after he did an evaluation of strength and flexability I saw that I do have differences. I know its not the same as what you were initally talking about, but my muscles are markedly different. He is now tailoring my workout to even out my body and make it symmetrical.
