Where do you lose weight first?
 
It's TOM for me and I am feeling a bit like my fingers were stolen and replaced with breakfast sausages. I was trying on clothes last night (which was probably not the best strategy since I was slowly swelling anyway) and every outfit ended with the thought "Boobs! Why don't you get smaller?!" My most fervent wish for this weight loss journey is for my breasts to get small enough that I can buy a bra in a regular store and not have to shell out megabucks at a specialty lingerie shop (36I anyone?).

When I lose weight (soon please!) I lose it in two places first - my waist and right above my knees. I'm not kidding. It's now a running joke between my BFF and I. I will say "I think I've lost weight. Look how slender my knees are."

Anyway I was wondering how it is for you? Where do you lose weight first? Also, I want to believe I won't just have smokin' hot knees!

I'm a pear shape, so my shoulders, boobs, and waist/tummy. I wear a size 10 on top and 14 on bottom. I was a 46DDD when I was 370lbs, I'm 185 now and wear a 34C. I kept an old bra and an old pair of jeans. It's trippy looking at them!

Apple shapes often lose weight in their legs and hips first. My friends mom was really an apple shape and she had very thin legs and even arms.

I lose it in my face first. From there it kinda works its way down. Then my arms look slimmer then around my waist and then my thighs. I kinda like that it happens that way I guess. I already have a round face even when I'm very slim. And my arms are quite musclar to begin with. Then my waist. It haunts me I tell you! I look very shapely from the back or front but from the side I look "wide". Not nice I say! I normally have "chicken legs" but after baby #4 came so did extra thigh meat! lol.

Can't wait to kiss it all good bye!

That is hilarious. Your entire post was a hoot.

To answer your question, I feel like I lose the weight proportionate to the initial size of each part. It is quite noticeable in my midsection because I am apple-shaped and I gain weight there first. As far as my boobs go, I now actually fit into the bras that I wear rather than having the double boob going on. At least you will not be apart of the club women who mourn when they get to goal because they lost their boobs. I hope that doesn't happen to me.

This is me-----also add butt to that. The last place I lose it is where I need to losevit most: my belly/waist.

My face , my waist, my boobs ....

Mmm... probably my thighs, upper abs, and boobs (though the last one occurs VERY slowly).

My face and tummy.

From the legs up and the head down, eventually I hope the losses will meet in the middle ;)

Anyone care to explain how I can go from a 38D to a 34DD while losing 20+ lbs?

I would love to have a shirt not pull at the buttons across the boobs while hanging losely around my waist like a sack.

Well according to my gynecologist, there's not set age for your breast to stop growing, so maybe you're still developing? Lol

YAY extended puberty. :carrot:

At 43 that would be a miracle worthy of the National Enquirer!

This is the first time I've lost enough weight to tell it myself. (Other people would always comment when I've lost in the past, but I never noticed it.) So, I noticed it first in my face (helloooo cheek bones!) and my waist/stomach (helloooo hip bones!). I also noticed the emergence of my collar bone last week. Gotta say, it is so much more motivating to see the changes myself, rather than just hear it from others. :)

The way I understand it - cup sizes are not equal at different band sizes - they really just are a way to express the difference in body circumference between the band and the breasts. So, a 38D is about the same as a 36DD, which is about the same as a 34DDD. You lost 4" around your ribcage, and 3" around your breasts.

I have gone from a 44C to a 40D but I can definitely tell that the girls are smaller! If I put on an old bra I am swimming in the cups.
