I noticed around my sides, like the love handle areas.

My tummy went from huge, to this weird bagel shape just on the front. Eventually that went away too and I just have saggy skin.

The rest of the body seemed like it was just all-over gradual.

Face, hands and around my middle.

I lost in chunks, and not always symmetrical, either.  It was a very odd time in my life.

 For me, breasts were definitely first, along with face and hands.  Waist is following close behind.  My lower half (bottom and thighs) where I carry most of my weight, is trailing behind slowly.

My weight loss went kinda like job seniority-
last hired, first fired - except for my boobs. They pretty much started evaporating immediately.
I have always been pear shaped so it seemed to go from the top down.
It is a really strange trip.
Be sure to take measurements pre-op and to update them monthly so you know about progress even if your weight has stalled.

So far for me it has been face, HANDS, waist and a little off my outer hips. Im bottom heavy so i agree with modesto...top to bottom:)

Hands has been really crazy for me, i lost a ton of weight as a teenager and my ring size went from a 9 to a 6. After gaining it all back i only went up to a 6.5 so i really wasnt expecting my hands to lose to much...my father in law said my hands are dainty, i laughed and said thats the only dainty thing about me!!! hehe

Anyways, my wedding rings are almost coming off my finger at only 3weeks! I didnt want to get them sized til i was close to my goal weight:( oh well... i guess ill wind some string around them;)

 Mine started at the top and worked it's way down... kind of the melting affect. 

I do have a question. Is Brian Lane gong to be your surgeon ? Did he move to the Defiance area ?  If he did please share his contact info. Thanks
