Definitely the lower body for me...including stomach. My love handles are the worst followed by my stomach, then thighs....My top half isn't quite as bad, thanks to being a member of the IBTC.

Mostly in my thighs, but also my calves and less so belly (a lot more so when I'm not eating well or exercising!). I have wide hips but a flat butt - so I guess I carry weight there, but it doesn't give me a nice booty just a wide load My arms are largish, but that's more because they're more naturally muscular than because of fat.

It took getting to my higher weights to lose my waist - but it happened eventually.

well, I guess I got kind of lucky. I tend to carry my weight anywhere that isn't my stomach or hips. That might be though because I'm hella long waisted. Bad part of this is that I'm a straight figure and don't get the curvaceous awesome that most 14 yearolds can pull off. The good and the bad.

I carry my weight incredibly evenly. I can't pick one part that's heavier than another. Calves, thighs, butt, hips, tummy, chest, arms, face, chins (all of them)...heck, even my feet are chubby. lol

I carry it mostly on my upper thighs and lower abdomen, like an inner tube. Yet I still have a flat butt

Mostly in the gut, like a thick tube around and above my belly button (my belly button actually overhangs my lower abdominal area, a bit. My waist is bigger than my hips and my ("man") shoulders are a smig wider than my hips, and the first place I lose is my boobs (I only ever made it to a large C, even at 270 and I'm back in a B) -- it makes for an interesting look on a female body. I have a small fat deposit at the top of my inner thighs but no saddle bags or really any large fat deposits on my legs. Finding clothes can be hard. (Not that it isn't for everyone!)

I carry the most weight on my hips, thighs and butt. My body is becoming more hourglass shaped now that I'm losing weight. Before it used to be more pear shaped, and I had a less defined waist. I always managed to have a waist though, even at my hugest. It's crazy. I never carried a lot of weight around my stomach, which I'm thankful for. I do have big fat arms and I absolutely HATE them. I hope I don't loose my boobs. They are a D, which isn't big for my size but I'm hoping they'll stay a C-D.
