    In the past couple of months, I've improved what I eat and started to exercise more than I used to just to improve overall fitness. I found that I've gradually lost 3kg (6.6 pounds) but I don't see a difference in waist / hip size and noticed my arms are looking more toned up. (I'm presuming, as I didn't do any tape measurements beforehand). I know you can't spot reduce and all but I'm just wondering will there be a point where my stomach/hips lose anything (that's the areas I wanted to tone up) or will I just progressively lose fat in my limbs and end up looking like a potato with four toothpicks or something? lol Because if that's the case, I'd rather just maintain my current weight and not try to lose a couple more pounds. I know people can't exactly tell me where I'll be losing fat next but I just wanted to know about some of your experiences with similar-ish weight loss.

    Yeah obviously there will be a point when you start losing fat from your abdomen. Its pretty unheard of to end up with skeletal limbs and a tummy and hips!
    Well done on the weight loss.

    Yeah there will be, but it does take a bit longer. Well done, your measurements sound great though!

    thanks. and grr, my melodramatic tendancies :rolleyes: .. i just expected to lose something first on the hips / waist area as arms were never a real concern of mine. now that u've mentioned how unlikely the whole potato-toothpick scenario is, I feel kinda stupid. lol :p:
