I know you can't spot reduce but where on your body did you start seeing weight loss first?

My stomach and my thighs are my biggest areas of weight. I know it's different for everyone but I'm just curious about where others saw weight loss first on their bodies.

    Breasts, rib cage. I usually know I'm finally in a deficit because my ribs just below my chest start to show and you can see the bone between my breasts.

    I've lost 11 lb so far in just under 7 weeks. My wrist watch feels looser - me thinks I should start wearing my fit bit around my waist!

    (My bras seem to fit better too. My waist fluctuates I think that's down to water retention).

    My butt :P I know I've lost weight elsewhere by how clothes fit, but you can actually see that my butt has shrunk significantly.

    Y'know, I was so obese that I think it just came off from all over. I can't identify an area where the fat disappeared from first. I just shrank all over.

    Now I've lost the majority of the weight I want to lose (although I still have a lot more to go) the remaining fat seems to be around my waist and thighs. My upper arms are a bit "flappy" but it's shrinking, my chest is probably as small as it's going to get (although I'm not worried if more disappears from there). There's a bit on my back as well.

    Hands, face, feet, calves are all good. I just want the fat to go from my lower torso and thighs now. It seems insurmountable at times :(

    Face, neck, moobs, arms are now floppy. Gut is still pretty huge, although smaller. I figure I HAVE to lose the gut soon as there is not much else where I have to lose. Maybe a bit in the thighs, but it HAS to come off my gut now, right?

    I carry the majority of my weight in my thighs/butt. However the first place I notice weight loss is in my waist area/stomach/haunches[like cats, that spot just above the butt haha]. I guess "first on, last off" is pretty true for me.

    Initially it's the butt, thighs, calves & stomach. But after a couple of weeks I can't seem to lose from these areas and my face, neck, back and shoulders start to shrink.

    My sides were the first to go. They went from hanging rolls to smooth surprisingly quickly, my waist overall saw the biggest loss next.

    My tummy is always the first to go. My inner thighs, cheeks and chin fat hang around like guests who won't leave

    I always see weight gain/loss in my face first. It wasn't long before I noticed waist bands didn't feel as tight.

    Stomach and lower abdomen for me. Then my legs started slimming out, waiting for my arms to get the message!

    Apparently my face has slimmed a large amount, so I guess I could say face too for first place to lose.
