You cannot spot fat. Meaning, even if your only problem was your stomach you cannot workout and only lose weight in your stomach. Yes, the stomach is the hardest to get rid of. You need to start working every muscle in your body. Your legs, back and butt are you largest muscles so work those also. I tend to work 2 muscles a day and finish with 10/15 minutes of cardio cause I read in studies that it helped people get in shape more quickly. I worked out for about 2 years doing just legs, arms, cardio and classes and I never it the results I wanted until I tightened up my workout and eating. You need to work every muscle group. I never worked my chest or back before because I didn't want to look manly. I've been doing those muscle groups now for about a year and it makes such an awesome difference. There is no magic pill or drink or one particular workout that will get you skinny and keep you skinny. It's just knowing what to eat and how to work out! I use to buy packaged turkey, wheat bread and healthy packages dinners. Not knowing that that turkey and those dinners are filled with tons of sodium. And most of the time the whole wheat bread was just enriched wheat flower, which is just as bad as white bread. If the first ingredient in the bread isn't "100% whole wheat flower" or just "whole wheat flower", then it isn't good. I hardly eat any bread now anyways. I eat other good cards that i get from fruit or veggies. I hardly ever look at calories. I know that turkey, chicken, fish and veggies have a reasonable amount of calories. I now look for very low if any, sodium, sugar, carbs, fat. Take the time and compare labels. Shop basically on the outside of groceries stores. Make sure every meal has protein. You build muscle and that way you burn fat because fat is easier to burn instead of muscle. I do a cheat meal once a weak and don't feel guilty about it. You need to or you will end up going off the deep end and eat real bad every so often. Good luck and give it time. You will start to notice a great difference but it isn't easy but it's worth it!
