Default Where do you tend to lose first?

And by "you," I mean you specifically, not people in general.

My scale's batteries just died, so I decided to check my measurements instead to see how we're getting along. And huzzah, I'm 8.5" down! ...unfortunately, they all came off of my thighs, and my butt, and my upper arms, and my neck. I know most women tend to hold their weight in the legs and hips, but not me. I am the apple-iest apple you ever saw. Practically all of my extra weight is in my stomach and boobs - I didn't even think I had fat to lose from my butt. But hey, I know it'll come off eventually. Last-on-first-off and all that.

So, just out of curiosity, where do you tend to lose fat and hold fat? And how long did it take you to see it start coming off of your biggest problem areas?

I lose around my hips last it seems...which is also my largest part.

I'm an hourglass (39.7 - 27.7 - 39.7/XL-M-L in clothes ), so fat is pretty evenly distributed. I lose first in my waist, then in my hips and thighs and I never lose anything off my boobs and arms. The thinner I get, the more frustrating my arms get...

Apparently I am losing in my fingers (my ring is looser) and my boobs.....sigh. the bras I just bought about a month ago are too big in the cup already. I need it to fall off my belly, but it obviously has ideas of its own!

I'm an apple shape too. All of the really noticeable gain and loss has been in my face, chest, back, and midsection.

I'm not totally sure, but I notice weight loss around my ribs first, and then in my boobs (sadly). Although if I regain and then lose again, it could vary.

My stomach is dead last. Hurray. I'm not a total apple, but much closer to that than a pear.

Although it is nice that I don't tend to put much weight on my hips or butt. Not so nice that they're smaller while my waist is not...

My middle has been getting a little slimmer and my thighs. I only notice the thighs when I sit and look down.
I think the last things that slim down are my face and fingers. I can't wait for that day. (Wedding rings are too tight! and too stubborn to resize them lol)

I still have a massive belly, but I took off a great deal through my rib cage and my upper arms first. (I was down three top sizes and only down one pant size after the first 75 pounds). Conversely, My boobs have maybe lost a half cup.

My bellies (yes, there are two) are taking their sweet time.

I notice it changes as I lose more. At first it seems to come off my face and waist. I'm an hourglass, and I remember feeling like my arms, hips, and thighs would never get smaller. But eventually it kind of switched around and I started losing from those areas and my waist stayed the same. It got so bad(went from having a 12in difference in bust/waist/hips to only 9in difference) that I then started to feel like I'd never lose in my waist! But now it looks like I'm losing there again so its funny how it switches around.

I'm proud to say that I lose first in my tummy. However even if it starts flattening out as soon as I start to eat well and exercise, it tends to take a long time to get totally flat in the long run.

It seems as if I'm losing weight in my face and joints first... Like, my elbows are getting pointier and my knees look different. I literally have no fat on my wrists at all. I can tell I've lost a little weight around my tummy, but I still can't fit in smaller jeans because I have a big butt & large thighs..
