5'8" and I carry it in my thighs, hips, belly, upper arms (a lot!) and my face. When I lose, the first place I notice is my butt and when I gain, I notice it in my hips.

I am 5'4" and I used to have a nice hour glass figure not it is more like a nice month figure. I carry it all over but when I lose it seems to fall of my butt and when I gain it goes on my stomach never have figured out the rhyme or reason for it.

I'm 5'8" and carry my weight evenly all over for the most part, the nice thing is that I lose it evenly too.

My goals are set for 2014 and I am ready to get healthy! I just turned 40, I just had a beautiful baby boy and I want to be a great roll model for him.

I am 5'6" and carry my excess weight pretty evenly, all over. I guess it depends on your body type. When I was fit and at my proper BMI I was symetrical, I guess the fat knows where to go to fill in where needed! emoticon

I'm 5'4" and I carry my weight in my hips and lower stomach ..... However, when I gain or lose, the first place I notice it is on my back and my knees (weird eh?) I think I don't notice the larger areas because there is so much to lose there!

5'3"

Initial Goals:
1. Get back into my previous weight loss jeans.

2. Meet my fiber requirements 5 days a week.

Now that I am finally exercising for the first time in 23 years I have decided to set these weekly exercise goals.

1. Walk or go to the gym 3 - 4 days a week.
2. Strength training 2 - 3 times a week

I'm 5'9", and I carry my weight mostly in my face, hips & bust. I recently measured my thighs, I've added a total of 2-3 inches with 50 lbs of weight gain... so picture toothpicks stuck in an avocado & you pretty much have it.

I'm 5'10" and carry it all in my butt, thighs, and upper arms. I used to say hips, but my hips are actually pretty svelte these days! It's the upper arms that get to me. I hate them.

lol. Well, I've heard males do continue growing into their late teens, even early 20's sometimes.

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

I am only 5 foot, a pound of weight is like 5 pounds. It seems to take more weight lost to see it too. I don't mind being short most of the time...at least until I have to buy pants, ugh!

I'm taking me back!

I am just under 5' 4" and I am truly one of those people who carry the weight "all over". I do have a saggy belly from my 2 pregnancies, but unless I am wearing really bad fitting clothes, I don't look nearly has heavy as I am. I will admit, the last time I got down to under 170, most of my co-workers noticed it in my face first.

I am a "shorty" at least by my husbands standards! I am 5'3" so any amount of extra weight REALLY shows!! I noticed a lot of people on here were in my weight range and just wondered, how do you carry your weight? Me? All gut (and face)
