I typically lose weight in my breasts first. Which is such a disappointment. I believe I am the only woman on the earth close to 300 lbs who fits into an B cup on a good day. I call them my itty-bitties. This time though, I first noticed it in my hands. How odd is that?! I am attributing it to the diet I am on which is one I have never done before, as well as my new-found 40ism.

Where is the first place you typically notice your weight lose? Has it changed since you were younger?

I lose weight in my abdomen which is great except that I gain weight in my abdomen first. It has always been this way. Even as a little girl I can see my shape a little less pronounced.
I am sorry about your breast issues. I have a cousin who is about the same size as me and we are pretty much the same shape except that she have very little boobage (as she likes to put it).

for me it's the belly.. that is the first place i gain weight, and the first place i lose it. it is also what i am most embarrassed about. being obese is bad enough, but 75 percent of it is in my belly... i feel like that guy from austin powers...get in my belly lol...

my abdomen for sure and thighs, and but. When I was younger it was all over body gain or loss. Since being over 43 definately noticed my gut area is the first to go and the first to gain.

Mine is always in my chest which stinks, my tummy is the hardest thing to get rid of always have been but I am big all over my body so I guess in a way I tend to gain and shrink evenly, but my boobs definately get the short end of the stick lol.

I would say belly and butt is where I first notice it - but then it slows down and the rest catches up. I am left with that "pregnant" look while the rest of me slims down around my stomach...

Mid-waist, tits, and calves. I really wish it would take away my bat wings under my arms but blah. Yeah I also gain in my gut first. I get all irritated when my shirts dont fit right one day and a week later they look normal again. lots of weigh flux in my stomach.

Face is the first place....unfortunately I look drawn and sickly by the time the fat loss gets to the butt and thighs which is the LAST place I lose and the place I need to lose it the most.

I lose weight from my face amd boobs first. The face is not so bad, as it tends to look chubby. The boobs are small enough, though, and I didn't want them to shrink! I've gone from 38" to 34".

Unfortunately, the last place I lose from is the belly, thighs and bum. As guacomole said, I now look pregnant as my stomach is much more pronounced.

I'm pretty lucky as I seem to lose weight evenly although I do see it first in my face.

Legs, face, and arms. Belly will be THE last to go. My ex said it's like draining a pool - the deeper end takes the longest to drain, and my belly is the deep end of my pool!
