When you gain fat, will you regain it in the stubborn places first?

I am in the process of deciding to do a bulk or a cut because I am kind of getting too scrawny, but I want to lose it in the stubborn spots so I can do a lean bulk and stay relatively lean throughout the year. I want to tone up my abs and arms but after losing 25 lbs I haven't looked super tone yet.
