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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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!

Stats: 125+ lbs lost
I never really paid attention to what shrunk first.... I guess I was/am just happy to be shrinking!

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.

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

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.

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.
