I know that doing HIIT workouts can help trim fat from all plcaes on your body. I don’t think you need to lose any fat anywhere, but HIIT can maybe help tone you up. It’s also a good workout for your heart if anything and you can get a good, hard workout in about 20-30 minutes.

I think you look great but if you are concerned focus on cardio paired with core exercises such as: sit ups, planks, etc. this is what will build and lean your abs.

I also found yoga was a great way to strengthen my core and plus it’s not as boring as just doing some stationary exercises.

I think you look great! I’ve always had a bit of a “pouch” too, even at my thinnest weight (110lbs at 5’8″)! It’s because I refuse to give up sugar and carbs. I don’t go overboard on them of course, but I like to have dessert and I love multigrain breads, pasta, etc. I’d rather be fit with a little pouch and still get to enjoy my favorite foods! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I don’t have any advice, more of a comment.   You looking amazing!!!! I am just wondering what workouts you did and what did you eat? Have the same body type and trying to lose weight.

No advice here either, but I’m taking notes too.  I have a slender build, but hold the most fat on my core/hips…I’m that skinny girl with the muffin top I can’t get rid of. lol I think you look great, and as far as I know, diet and weight training should get you to where you want to be!

barnes66:  You already have a flat belly :-)I personally woudn’t lose any more as you would lose that nice slim athletic build and start to look too skinny

Also for most people who are thin with flat bellies and sort of eating, drinking ( even water) will inflate the belly a bit. I only really have a truly flat stomach in the morning before I even drink water!

You need to remember most models you see don’t eat or drink for hours on end / purposefully dehydrate themselves to get that look and there is always photoshop

You look amazing!! good work ๐Ÿ™‚

You look awesome!  I’m hoping to be in your position two months from now ๐Ÿ™‚  HIIT is great for fat loss, from what I’ve heard and tried thus far.  I also just started a free app for couch to 5k, which was really effective too.  I’m still in week one but it’s basically HIIT running specific.  I tend to be more of an elliptical girl, but the treadmill gets me working up a sweat.  Also, swimming is fantastic for you.  Yoga is a close second in my book ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m curious what your goal is. If you want to look like a supermodel or a fitness model then yes you have to lose more fat. If you want to look like a slim sexy healthy woman, congrats, you’ve done it!! ๐Ÿ™‚

barnes66:  You look great! Abs and a flat tummy are made in the kitchen, not in the gym. Core exercises can help, but they will certainly not take away the fat from your belly region. Try to eat healthy, eat  lot of protein and do planks.
