    hi as you may know i been trying to lose weight which im doing good so far im currently at 202.16 or 91.7kg but i still have some leftover belly flab not really to notice able im trying to flatten that down but im worried that the only way to do that is through plastic surgery. is there a way for me to get my leftover belly flab to be flat or at least a 4 pack or a 6 pack with out weight. it not very noticeable when im standing or sitting straight up but if im bending from my waist it shows about from a middle finger to about 1/3-1/2 of my palm that is how much it show if im bending over. i would like it to be flat, i also still have some love handles but it way smaller then it was my palms are almost flat when i try to see how much i still got left to get rid of. my ideal weight is 160 but i need help in the stomach area. i have been doing sit ups crunches crunchyfrog v sit up and side crunches as much as i can do and i do walking for a hour or two.and i do a little belly dance moves i know like the hip rotation move like you would do with a hool loop and something called pushup blast which is like a regular pushup yet you need your knee then go over any ideas on how long or how much more ill have to work for it to be gone or what more i can do? ill try to get some picture posted on what i got left and what i meant on my stomach and my progress so far ( i need to post that anyway)
    here the video for the pushup blast http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/training-day/201208/pushup-blasts-your-core

    I'd be more than happy to give advice; but since you can't even type properly, I doubt you have the intelligence required to read and apply the advice to your advantage.

    You can't target fat loss in a certain area. Just go on a hardcore diet and do tons of cardio and it will all disappear ;).. Oh and lift weights so you don't have any extra skin.

    Don't listen to this. Calorie deficits on a high caloric load will burn out your liver and kidneys.

    Reframe your question coherently and I'll try to help.

    Is your diet well rounded, and supportive of a healthy lifestyle?

    Stomachs are made in the kitchen, not the gym. Eat less, but more often. Reduce simple carbs in favor of more complex, low glycemic sources. Increase protein intake a touch as well to drive the metabolism. Keep daily exercise up, but if you're not used to it, don't hurt yourself. 30 min light jog or heavy walk.

    That should get you started...

    Guys, I don't think he's talking about simple fat loss; I think he's talking about that extra stretched skin thing that sometimes happens when people lose a lot of fat too quickly. Because the skin has been stretched out so much, when they lose the weight super fast they still have that stretched out skin. My understanding is the only way to get rid of that is by surgery.

    Good for you!

    Just remember that carbs are not the devil. Simple carbs are though. Carbs are the primary source of fuel for the body. Just keep them complex, and portioned. Sounds like you've got a good system though, so keep it up.

    If that is the case, then you are correct. Surgical abdominoplasty is the only way to remove excess skin.

    if i had that what would be the cost of have that done and i dont think im losing weight too quickly for it to have that happen i started to get skinnier/healthier near the end of october of last year and im believe im losing 1-3lbs a week or so and i have heard that there lotion or something that can help tight that loose skin up but i dont know if it true. im 22yrs old is it possible that the product if it worked be a cheaper way then surgery?

    You will most likely need to have cosmetic surgery. As for cost it depends on how much will need to be done and where you go. Consultations are free and the doctors will give you a price and options on how to pay. Good luck!

    From personal experience, I can safely say that excess skin is reabsorbed. It does take years, though. The trade-off is time vs. money.

    Eventually, your flab will go away on its own. I've got the six-pack to prove it (and the before pic, too). Money will make it go away much faster, of course.

    so there is a cheaper way to make it go away though time it will which im will be more then happy to save money since i dont have the money to do surgery anyway but is that what i have it doesn't look like those in those pictures. im willing to work on my tummy then the surgery
