From the top down and from the bottom up ... meaning I'll see losses in my face and be able to measure it in my thighs. Then the losses sort of move in their respective directions and finally meet in the middle as the last place I lose is in my waist.

Face and bust first, belly and back last. I have a short torso body type, so most of my excess cumulated weight is in my torso. My legs looked great even at 270 pounds, though

I'm an hourglass—always have at least a 12" difference between waist and hips. The weight I'm lost so far has sort of come off everywhere, but more in my face, bust, and waist than hips and thighs. I think I follow the pattern I heard described once as "You lose from the top down, then redistribute from the bottom up." I have a long way to go before I'm waiting to redistribute, but I know not to get discouraged about my huge legs: they, too, will eventually get smaller.

I think it's the same for me: my tummy/back, boobs, cheeks. Those are the areas that gain weight faster and seem to lose it faster. My legs barely gained weight so they are barely losing; my arms... I don't know.

I lose first around my waist, then a bit on my back just above my bum (with the help of exercise) and then the rest sort of follows. I tend to notice it on my fingers cause my rings feel looser.

When I start a diet I find that I stop bloating and I can suck my stomach in more, but I'm not sure if that's actual weight coming off my stomach! The hardest place for me to lose is my thighs! They are massive! I think I have a pretty flat stomach because I do a lot of ab work.

I lose weight very proportionately over my entire body. I think my natural figure (without all the weight) is an hourglass so my body loses in that manner. My waist and stomach always gets the headstart and loses first, while boobs, hips and thighs lose slower, but proportionate to each other. Arms are the slowest of all.

I think I lose weight evenly since my weight is distributed evenly, but the little difference I do notice is in my upper arms. Also, the back of the muffin top area! That was the first thing to shrink a bit!

definitely my boobs and face. My thighs are the very last to ever slim down. Seems it always comes off my top half first leaving my body very out of proportion lol

face and boobs for me. I have a fat face so that's good, but tiny boobs (my daughter ate 'em) so I don't need to lose from there. My middle is my worst place for carrying weight and is always the last place to shrink

The smallest point of my waist, my chest, shoulders, and upper back. I'm "pear-shaped" if you will, and my hips, butt, and thighs are the last to go. Well, I've never been THAT small, so I'm just assuming they're the last go! Anyway, I also see immediate changes in my fingers, hands, and wrists, along with less swelling overall throughout my body, if that makes any sense? I have very muscular and thick legs, so I do see them get smaller, but it takes a lot longer than most everything else.

LOL, unbelievably, my wrist, ankles and neck. What a cruel act of fate. A giant backside with skinny wrist and ankles and a turkey neck. LOL!
