    When you lose weight- where do you see it first on yourself?

    I lost 20 lbs over Jan/Feb and then went off track. I gained about five back and recently have lost about 7 more lbs. I consider it a true weight loss and not just water if it maintains for one week which it has. The water I lost from my illness Saturday(see my other thread! ) came back this morning so instead of a 10 lb weight loss, I am still sticking at 7!

    But I was surprised when 3 people came up to me today and asked if I've lost weight because my face looks so much thinner.

    I looked in the mirror and I guess my face really does look thinner! I was just surprised that a weight loss as minor as 7 lbs could show up on your face. I really wish the weight loss would show on my tummy, butt or hips!

    But just curious when you lose weight- where do you tend to see it the most?

    Always in my face first. I think it's because our head has the least amount of 'meat' to begin with

    Yup, face first. I have lost over 60 lbs in the past year and a half. I lost it in my face, then my buttocks/hips. After that, I really noticed it in my arms and hands. Still waiting for the loss in my tummy. Actually, I've lost a lot there, but that seems to be where the fat is "pooling". I need to get back on track and lose the rest of the weight!

    I always see it in my stomach first. When I can wake up in the morning with a "flat-like" tummy, I know I've lost a few lbs. I'd love to lose some lbs in my thighs and butt!

    For me it's pretty much in the face and boobs. Unfortunately those are the *last* two places I need to lose weight. I'm a AA cup size and have a long, narrow face as it is.
