Connie, body sculpting is my specialty. I don't like to toot my own horn on your thread, but getting rid of belly fat and developing a flat tummy is very doable. The caveat for everyone though is, it may take time. Typically, people give up before they get results. Or, in the case of what I call "Fad Fitness, " the results often come quickly, but are short term because the body reacts by slowing your metabolism and you either plateau or gain more than you lost.
The best course of action is slow steady progressive improvements.
