Different people store fat in different places. This is determined by genetics. Some people will gain/lose weight in their face first, others in their belly, others in their thighs etc. So there is no way to guess, really.

Just be patient and keep plodding on.. you'll get there and then you'll be surprised when you do if you relax a little. ^^

Losing weight/getting healthy is a long term commitment because once you "do" it you have to stick with a healthy lifestyle in order to keep the weight off. So try not to think of it as a race, even though I know you want it to happen like, NOW.

With my own weight loss, and seeing pictures of others on here, I've noticed that many people lose weight in the face or neck first. This is often what people comment on when you see before and after pics as being the biggest change.

I guess my point is that your double chin might be gone sooner than you think!

Also think about cutting back on sodium and alcohol to lose some of the chin puffiness. Works for me!

I wish this were the case with me. People tell me that I'm losing most noticeably  in  my upper body, but not my chest. The fat on my ribs and upper back seems to be falling off, also some from my belly is coming off too. The freakin double chin is still in full effect though. It stinks 'cause that's the one area I wish I could lose first.

On biggest loser--everyone but Kelly has lost their extra chin...

I think mine is a little smaller after 14 pounds...and yeah I have noticed my face swells if I drink

I'm definitely one who lost weight off my face first.  People seem to think I'm already emaciated, even though I'm still a bit flabby under the clothes.

 

One thing that may help a bit to firm and tighten your face in general are Jack LaLanne's famous facial isometric exercises.

After trying these, you'll notice there are several other exercise routines listed to the right of the page.  I swear by these exercises - they've helped make my face look firmer, more symmetrical, and younger.  Jack himself looked great into his 80s with these exercises.

THANK YOU for the clips from Jack Lalane!!!

I think most people lose face fat early on. I'm the complete opposite but I think I'm rare.

Yea, for me the neck was like the first thing that got thinner. Like 6 weeks into it. I started studying calCount diet, and bike rididng a lot. First thing I mentioned on my forum posts is that I could see my neck. After that I hit a 'plateau' where I wasnt losing any weight, although I was still firming up. So far  I have lost a total of 25 pounds, although that took a year and a half. Im kinda getting into it more and more as I drop the pounds though, and actually seeing results in the mirror, and people actually commenting on how much I have lost. I cant tell you how much of a booster it is when someone you havnt seen for a year sees you and says they think you lost 20 pounds
