    Face, definitely. I only had a double chin when I was around 290+ and I always see weight loss first in my face. In the past couple of months I'd gone up a little bit (I'm in maintenance but had to rein things back in after vacation) and the past week or two I'm temporarily freaked out by my own face in the mirror because it looks a lot different to me even with just going back down like 4 lb.

    Second for me is neck/collarbone area and hips are last.

    I have always noticed it in my face first. But strangely enough, when I asked my roommate what she noticed first, she said it was my collar bones...

    My butt! And not in a good way. It almost immediately began to sag. It's taking a lot of squats to try to get back any kind of shape. From there, I began to notice it in every body part at once.

    Losing my fat *kitten* was the safest part of losing weight. I always had a great butt even at my heaviest. But yes you absolutely can build it back!!

    I never did notice it any one place in particular my first time around, and this time I haven't yet made much progress. But I hope my face. It's the most obvious part!

    My pooch and my forearms first, then my butt and my back fat. Then my face. Then my waistline from my bra strap down. Boobs stay the same, and look even more ridiculous, lol.

    I think I lose it off my thighs and neck/shoulders first. Tummy seems to be the last to go!

    Of course it varies person to person, but I first noticed weight loss on the top of my scapuli, but the major area has been my waist. It looks like I'm extreme corseting when I'm not. I know my hips and thighs will be last.

    For the past near decade of multiple trips on the yo-yo, breasts. Last place to start to accumulate adipose, first place to lose.

    This time? Lower legs/feet and lower arms first, and now panniculus. And I admit it; I am admittedly a bit worried. I don't want to end up with this cup size at 180-170-160-150 lbs. Not panicking just yet but I want my A's back! :/

    I lose weight in my rib area. With almost 20 lbs down I've lost almost 5 inches off my ribs thats more than anywhere else. It sucks because my boobs won't lose any so it gets harder to find a good bra.

    My face, then my hips, slowest losing it in my abdomen

    Yup, me too! I can always tell from how my face looks when I start to lose or gain.

    My face - for me it is very top to bottom. I have about 15 pounds left and I can say that NONE of it is coming off my upper body.

    Waist& tummy go first, butt & thighs are last to go.
