I am so elated to be finally losing the weight! My problem is it seems to be in all the Wrong places. I have lost 2 bra cup sizes and by butt looks like it is melting and sliding down a cliff! My stomach and thighs are about the same! Which now makes me look like a backward "S". I have always enjoyed my voluptuous, curvaceous figure and while I had hoped to improve my overall health and appearance, I seem to be doing something very wrong.
MY job consist of office work that is primarily me sitting at a computer for 9 hours a day. My work out routine consist of at least 30 mins. cardio (usually in the form of a stationary bike w/ resistance or an inclined treadmill), then I use the Nautilus machines to work out, light weights, fast and quick reps at least 3 times a week. I have drastically reduced overall intake, no (OK..few) few fried foods, limited carbs, lots of lean proteins (mainly broiled or grilled fish/chicken, low fat cheese, and yogurt), green leafy veggies and water.
I feel ashamed to be so vain but I AM.... ANY suggestions or should I just be glad to be losing weight and getting healthy!

You're not doing anythign wrong... it's the nature of weight loss. You can't control where it comes off.

You can't decide where to lose fat from on your body. Typically the last to gain it is the first to lose it. I'm losing weight the same way, top first, bottom later. The rest will catch up if you continue working at it. It's just that your body will decide where to pull the fat from and there's no way to change that or "spot reduce" if you will.

What they said. ^^^^^^

Just continue to eat clean as possible and it will begin to happen for you.
Reduce fat all over. Lift as heavy as you can and tone those buns/guns.

Just be persistent.
I think the stomach area is the last to go for most ladies, myself included.
I understand your dismay though because I'm cool with the rest of me, finally...

P.S. If you want to tone your thighs look up plie squats/sumo squats.
