Women, especially as we get older, tend to store fat in the belly. If your weight has stayed the same maybe you have lost muscle tone but gained a tiny bit of fat. The scale would be the same but your body composition will have changed.
Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.

they say stress is a big factor to it.... if that is the case my waist may never change! Crying or Very sad then that makes me wonder about the old saying what is STRESSED? Why low and behold it is DESSERTS spelled backwards.... say it isn't so!Shock

you might want to check out Jorge Cruise http://jorgecruise.com ..he's been working on this topic for about 3 years and has come up with the Belly Fat Cure. It's the plan I'm following...I'm still learning how it all works but I like it so far.

You might also have gotten slightly bloated (stress,not enough water, PMS, etc). Check it for a few days in a row, not just once. Unless you have a muscular belly, your belly changes daily based on what's happening inside your body.

Insulin, which the body puts out to handle spikes in blood sugar, normalizes blood sugar levels by converting the sugar to fat and putting it in storage. If you are eating high glycemic foods (sugar, HFCS, refined flour products, potatoes, rice etc.) which rapidly raise your blood sugar, you may have high insulin levels and therefore higher fat storage. Unfortunately, for many of us, the first choice of storage site is our middle.

Age reshapes our bodies. Sucks, doesn't it?

By the way, there's no such thing as spot reduction (losing weight from a specific body part) and any plan that claims to "eradicate belly fat" is scamming you. The only way to lose fat is through dieting and exercising to lose weight over all. Here's an article that might be of interest:

You can't spot reduce
