Where do you notice....
Your weight loss first? I figure lts of people notice in their pants, or shirts, but where randomly do you notice?

For me it's my watch. I was out riding the Harley today and the stupid thing would stay on my wrist right. Guess its time to take a link or two out.

haferchamp 04-03-2013 08:48 PM

My ring and my bra! :cry:

reddarin 04-03-2013 08:59 PM

My jeans but I had a pretty dang big belly. I've lost a couple of link sizes in my watch band too.

The first thing someone else noticed about me was how unfat my face had become. I hadn't really noticed it myself until then but when I looked at my DL photo wow it looked like I was holding my breath.

rubidoux 04-03-2013 09:22 PM

just above my knees, like between knees and thighs

Ntombi 04-03-2013 09:55 PM

I lose from the top down. My neck gets smaller and my bra gets bigger first.

I measure monthly, and it is like I melt downward. My top half loses big one month, then my bottom half loses big the next. I lose at least a little everywhere, but the bigger losses are always one half or the other. Weird.

Unfortunately the boobies leave first

Julie1972 04-04-2013 04:52 AM

My rings are loose and some of my shoes are way too big! And of course I've had to replace all my clothes and undergarments!

baileygirl3 04-04-2013 05:17 AM

mine was my hands face and chest

avid 04-04-2013 07:59 AM

hands and face for me too.

jazills 04-04-2013 08:47 AM

I wear calf length cowgirl boots almost everyday and theyre made to fit around the calf. Zips up. I bought them 2 months i noticed today that theyre easier to zip up :)

My face. First place I gain and first place I lose. You'd think that looking at a fat face in the mirror would be enough to keep me on track forever, wouldn't you? It's not like my butt, which can easily be ignored. :hyst:

CTIgrad 04-04-2013 09:16 AM

I've never noticed in my face... That may be because I sport a full beard, but I'm just sayin...

GAVIV 04-04-2013 09:53 AM

Definitely face. Then thighs...thank god!

raindroproses 04-04-2013 11:12 AM

Rings, and face... I wish it was tummy and thighs though! :hyst:

AsmallerME 04-04-2013 12:13 PM

Ring and bra. I wish it was my stomach and face.

mom23kids 04-04-2013 12:21 PM

Stomach, then face, chest/rib area, then bum/thighs. Now that I'm in maintenance I'm noticing my jean legs getting baggy, even though I'm not losing weight anymore :dunno:

The one area that I haven't noticed a difference is my arms. Those seem tbe same, even though I'm 40lbs lighter now.
Oh, I've also gone down half of a shoe size :confused: :laugh:

Mad4Chillas 04-04-2013 01:14 PM

I notice in my tummy, butt, then boobs, thighs and arms are kind of the last to fall in line (Im pear shaped), however I have always had a really prominent jaw line and a long oval shaped face and even at my highest weight I still have a 'thin' face.

Sometimes I wish my face would get fat though so itd be more motivation for me to stop going back to my dirty carb ways :lol:

I do notice I get 'carb face' if i do eat carbs for the first time after a while, my face gets a little puffy...Im assuming from the bloat :hyst:

MtherGoos 04-04-2013 01:17 PM

Face for me too. And it seems like once people finally start noticing, they'll always say... "Have you lost weight? I can really see it in your face!" Grrr... Why can't you see it from my butt or thighs! I feel like that guy in BeetleJuice that has the little tiny shruken head and big body!

I feel like my tummy and thighs are here to stay no matter what I do...lol!

bacon bit 04-04-2013 02:06 PM

I notice first in my belly, I think. And thighs. But the weirdest place I've noticed is my armpits?

Seriously! It's like they think we're pals or something, but really? I wish they'd just get lost already :hyst:

DiamondDeb 04-04-2013 06:18 PM

I never really paid attention to what shrunk first.... :confused: I guess I was/am just happy to be shrinking! :laugh:

Thinking about my measurements as they've been dropping I would say I lose pretty evenly, top and bottom. What I noticed first is the fit of my clothes changing. Tops & pants seem to get baggy about the same time.

I should have taken before pictures but I did not think of it at the time. Progress pictures really speak volumes.

xo ashley 04-04-2013 07:28 PM

I hate my lower body. I've always had a smaller waist. And I swear, I will drop inches off my waist before a millimeter in my thighs. My waist was 29 a few years back, it's about 26 now. I can guarantee it'll shrink before the butt and thighs. Most females I know lose the chest but mine aren't going anywhere lol

N7femshep 04-15-2013 07:30 PM

I'm a pear shape, and it's in how my jeans grip my belly. If I'm walking around, my jeans are totally comfy, but when I sit down they dig into my belly if I'm too high in weight. The more I lose, the more comfortable they become sitting. I've always had a terrible time finding jeans that don't hurt the belly when I sit down but fit my butt and hips.
Husband says it's my midsection that loses first.

peretroika 04-15-2013 07:45 PM

Butt! I wish it was my upper thighs and belly, but those are getting smaller too!

Pami 04-15-2013 07:49 PM

Normally, the last place you gain will be the first place you lose.
You know, it's not all that attached and easy to just slip away.
(It's what I've always heard- and it makes sense-
and it is true for me and many others.)
So, in my case, midriff.

lanita 04-15-2013 08:06 PM

Armpits, wrists, waist

Rebecca1979 04-15-2013 08:36 PM

I have a super sharp heart shaped face so my Jay Leno chin pops out! =)

Deosil 04-15-2013 09:15 PM

Face and shoulders and shortly after comes smaller chest. :( I wish that would just stay as it is! :P

cfine 04-16-2013 06:56 AM

Face, rib area, hands. The last to go is this huge belly! It's got it's own zip code.
