The answer to this question is different for both men and women. Both genders have varied areas of concern. They gain weight differently, hence they lose weight differently. Men are more concerned about fat accumulation around their abdomen, while for women hips and thighs are significant. In most cases, the first place you put on fat is generally the last place it comes away from. Like if you have recently noticed weight gain around your hips, then you will lose inches first from that area when you start exercising and eating healthy.
