    look good to me

    have you tried HIIT cardio? I find it very productive.
    It sux but the only way to lose any more bf around the midsection is to lose more bf in general since you cant spot reduce your stomach. It is usually the last spot for it to go on most.

    Zen-Lifter is right, there is no such thing as spot reduction. Just keep up the cardio, some cruches, and add some weight training and you will be hot as hell, as if you don't look it already.

    I think everyone agrees...

    that you really don't need to loose much weight. How 'bout some better pictures with some better lighting.

    Try doing vaccuums for your midsection.

    There's a lot of FOOLS TRYING to help.

    The most important thing is to eat a clean diet and count your calories if you must.

    Second, cardio would help.

    Third, weightlifting would help (and doing a little ab work)

    Yeah I agree with MJSbossman, most important thing is a clean diet. Your abs are practically made in the kitchen, make sure you got your diet down. Other then that check out all the ab articles, do crunches AT LEAST...and then find other exercises that work your abs that you think fits you best. Most important, be patient. Good luck!

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Your tummy isn't what I'd call flabby. You look fine.
    Personally, I think cardio is way overrated. Don't be afraid of lifting relatively heavy weights. You won't get bulky and muscular without serious dedication, genetics and a specific training program for bulking.
    The good news is that you will gain that firm, fit, "toned" look you are seeking. Muscle burns calories so if you gain lean muscle, your body will burn more calories and you'll look and feel fitter.
    As long as you maintain a healthy diet of good, whole, fresh foods (don't bother with processed, low fat stuff), sensible training and plenty of sleep, you will get there.

    My personal (and general) recommendations for that fit, sculpted look are:
    1. Eat smaller meals every 2 - 3 hours.
    2. Eat fresh, whole foods like Salad, veggies, red and white meat, eggs, fish, fruit, rice, pasta and drink plenty of water. Eat most of your carbs before and after working out and in the morning. Eat the fattier stuff towards the end of the day.
    3. Keep away from low fat (ie, that 97% fat free rubbish) foods. They tend to be low in nutrients, highly processed, full of chemicals and high in simple carbs (sugar).
    4. As a starting point, try working out with weights three times a week and avoid extra cardio (a little is OK but it can lead overtraining and very slow results).
    5. Keep your workouts focussed and around one hour each.
    6. I personally favour lifts like bench presses, squats, walking lunges (great for hips, thighs and glutes), deadlifts. Basically, the compound movements that utilise a number of muscle groups.
    7. Keep your form strict and aim for the 10 - 12 rep range on your exercises.
    8. Full body workouts are OK to begin with. Then look at splitting your workout into different bodyparts.... ie:
    Monday - Legs
    Wednesday - Back / shoulders / biceps
    Friday - Chest and triceps.
    9. You need to give your body time to recover. Don't overdo it with extra stuff like treadmills and aerobics three times a week. Lifting weights for an hour is a cardio workout.

    Remember, muscle size is a combination of factors such as:
    Genetics,
    Food intake,
    Hormone levels (that's why we don't get as muscular as most guys with the same training),
    Training,
    Rest.
    Don't worry about getting bulky "man muscles". It won't happen. Weight training is a very efficient way of shedding excess bodyfat and getting "toned". Much more effective than cardio.
