Seems as though the belly fat has decided it will come off last. Sometimes that's the way it is. You'll have to sacrifice those thighs unfortunately.

Are you female, by chance?



Run.

Change your lifestyle.

Lower your intake of trans fats, sugary foods/drinks and refined carbs. Start slow, increase your level of exercise along with changes in diet. There's a synergy and positive reinforcement loop between the two. Set goals.

If you don't know much about nutrition download a free calorie counting app, plug in all your meals for the day and see where you stand.



 

You don't.

Your body burns fat from where it stores it. It's not like if you do sit ups it's going to burn fat specifically from the stomach.

The main thing is to just keep losing weight and some of it will come from your stomach if that's where it's stored. You could also try specifically building the muscles in your stomach. While this definitely WON'T burn fat off your stomach, if you build some muscle (which btw will be very hard to do while losing weight) it may make you happier with the way your stomach is looking.

With that being said, everybody's body is different. Some of us just naturally store fat in different places, so you may just not be able to get your stomach to exactly where you want it to be, particularly if you also want to keep more fat on other parts of your body.

I don't believe you can really target an area per se. I mean you just have to reduce your body fat.

If you lose weight you generally lose it everywhere. I have a similar problem, I have skinny everything but I am cutting weight mostly just for a tighter stomach.

Frankly, you can do core exercises but the solution is really reducing your body fat. Generally people don't have great abs and fat everywhere else.

36 waist is kinda big for 155. Like pants size 36? It sounds like you have weight to lose. I am 5'11, 160 size 32.

Personlly I fast every day and I am a vegetarian. I eat like a entire day of food in only 4 hours, generally in the morning, then I eat nothing until the next morning. I look and feel much better since going this route but it may not be for everybody.

Keep losing weight as usual, no other way around.

With most pants, not dress pants, the size of the pants does not correlate with waist size directly.  They shave a number or two off to make people feel better.  So, a 36 inch waist probably correlates to a size 34 for most jeans.

Either way it sounds like your waist size will decrease with more weight loss.

My advice is reduce your body fat with diet, high protein for muscle mass and exercise.

I didn't take much protein in the past so I looked more gaunt in comparison at the same weight.

Think you're talking to the wrong person.
