    HI
    Does anyone else seem to have lost weight from the TOP downwards! I have lost 4 stone 10lb now, and my FACE/CHEST/WAIST are all thinner, and have lost inches, but not much happening "below the waist" ? Does it work like that? need to lose these HIPS and BUM!!
    Everyone says "oh you've lost weight, your face looks thinner"!! I didnt actually think my "fat face" was that FAT! its the bottom half!
    Will it go eventually?

    I am losing from the top down too. I wonder if it is something to do with ketosis because that's what happened on Atkins too. No other diet has been like that.

    Well the thighs would be smaller to begin with so you would lose less overall there :) But yes generally speaking you tend to lose weight from the top down. This has happened me on any diet I have ever been on

    Yep I was a top down girl (ooer that sounds a bit rude!), bottom half did eventually catch up but tummy was the last thing to shrink, typical!

    I totally lose from the top down. It's so frustrating to have bony collar bones and a fat arse! And when I regained the weight I'd got rid of with LL, the first half a stone back on went exclusively on my thighs - I could almost feel them getting fatter every day, which was VERY scary indeed.

    I can relate to everything that you have all said, mine has all come off the top half so much so that you can now see my ribs, attractive hey!! There's still plenty though round my bum and thighs - it's like 'saddlebags r us' LOL:(

    Hi

    I've carried on my exercise as normal (on both SS and SS+, now on 810). Mondays: circuits + body combat, Tuesday: 1/2hr gym + bodypump, Thursday: body combat or 1 1/4 gym - cv/weights, Friday: advanced circuits. Tend to have a bar before and have had no problems at all. Used to do bodypump on Saturdays at 10am but can't manage this at the moment as I don't have my 1st CD until about 12 ish (therefore no energy) so just make do with a 20/25 min to the City Centre.

    Thanks Elaine! It took me longer than it could of done as I moved up the plans earlier than I needed to due to holidays etc that I had booked. I started in August and got to my original goal of 9.5 stone in January.

    I wonder if exercising the bottom half of the body would give my arse some incentive to get smaller?!! I know they say that you can't spot reduce your body but has anyone who has been exercising seen a more even weight loss result?

    PS - I agree with So much to lose Porgeous - plus, I love those jeans in your pic!!
