Hello Jane and :welcome: to 3FC ... and congrats on your weightloss so far :bravo: ...

Here's what I think... Along with losing weight are you also exercising? Are you doing some cardio? Some weight training? Eventually your body will change but you have to exercise. Cardio is good to burn fat but weight training will definitely shift your weight around and make you look slimmer...

Hope this helps...

I also think we lose weight from different spots at different times. You may find you lose the bulk of your hip weight as you approach the last 10 lbs closer to your goal. And of course, exercising dow there can only help - squats, lunges, lots of work that will engage the glutes and thigh muscles.
