I am doing really good at losing weight but what I can't seem to get rid of is the flab! I just got a home gym added in my house so I hope that works but I am wondering if anyone has any ideas of their own that worked. My main area is my belly. I know I probably won't ever have a wash board stomach, and I'm ok with that, but I do want it to flatten out and tone up more than what it is. The second area that needs work is what I call my bat wings. You know the area under your arms that waves when you wave Laughing I still have a good bit more weight to go so to the ones who have lost weight, will this go down as I lose more weight or is there something that I can do to work on this? I look forward to any suggestions that might work.

Strength training is the best way to start to get rid of the flab. It will help speed your metabolism and help you lose less muscle and more fat as you continue to lose weight. You can do body weight exercises like pushups and squats as well as lifting weights that are at least heavy enough to provide a challenge.

I am also in the process of the same changes you are going through. I have been doing the strength training thing. I do a small dose of ab workouts everyday just so that it will strengthen my core and also I do alot of pushups and tricept workouts to get rid of that bat wing, I call it my bingo wing (like when the old ladies yell bingo and wave their arms, Thats what mine looks like too) Plus like roseone was saying, the more muscle you gain the more fat you burn so its like building muscle and taking the fat away in those areas. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!!
