Where's the First Place You Gain Weight?

Where's the First Place You Gain Weight?

It's normal to have weight fluctuations, depending on our diet, workout routine, and stress. Others may not be aware that you've put on some weight, but you're sure to notice either by the mirror, the scale, or how your clothes fit. People gain weight differently so tell me . . .

right in my belly, giving me a nice, bloated, 2 months pregnant (at least in my head) look. :)

I'm not sure on the gaining front -it seems to go everywhere! (although distinctly on my hips) As for losing... apparently i just 'suddenly' look like i've dropped weight after a while... the legs are the LAST place to lose it though as I've never yet gotten them how I want them!

Hips/lovehandles. Ugh so over muffin top.

Always in my stomach and the last place I lose it, well second to my boobs. No, my boobs are not fake, but for some reason no matter how much I lose, they stay the same.

I am a pear (spoon) shape so from my torso down! Never my boobs. NEVER MY BOOBS. :(

Ughhhhh thighs. The first place to gain, last to lose! I'm starting to lose the last of my belly flab (I only have a little), but the thigh pudge will take a while to budge. It gives me a pear shape, which is waay gross because I would normally have a really nice hourglass figure. UGH!

Definitely my stomach! I find it really hard to lose weight from there as well. Even at the height of my eating disorder, the lower belly wasn't going anywhere! I suppose this is where I "learn to love" it. :) But I agree with the above poster, it's a little difficult to learn to love the belly pooch when the girl in the photo is prodding at her non-existent love-handles, heh.

BY THE WAY THE GIRL IN THE PHOTO HAS A GREAT BODY. And her pinching her perfect self makes me feel HUGE. :(

I gain weight on my belly first and I lose weight on my belly first. I can tell by the way I alternate different holes on my belt.

Belly and face. Bleh. I look like the marshmallow man.

Boobs, belly and face all at once. And since I'm about 5 feet tall, a few extra pounds is very noticeable.

Tummy. When I'm overweight (as I was as a teenager), I'm apple-shaped. My body likes to store excess fat in my mid-section.However, when I have no excess weight, I have a hourglass figure.Also, extra weight shows up in my face, too. My face plumps up.

Apple shape here. I gain first in my belly and I lose first in my legs. Like immediately. One week of cardio after doing nothing for months and my legs already look different. But for my belly, it took me about 3 months of intensive cardio and strenght training to look a little bit more flat. It's not as flat yet as I want, but my boyfriend loves it right now, so there's no rush.

I gain love handles first and then it shows up on my belly. But nowhere else!! It's insane, I'm what I like to call "chili pepper-shaped" and when I gain I look like a stirring straw with a cheerio around the middle....
