Q.I've been doing Advanced Tae-Bo four days a week for a year. I love it and have watched my butt, legs and arms get toned. The problem is my stomach: My abs are harder underneath, but I still have a flabby belly that just won't seem to go away. What else can I do?

A. "If your body is predisposed to storing fat in your abdominal area, you're just not going to have six-pack abs," says Dale Huff, R.D., a fitness trainer and nutritionist in St. Louis. It's simply not realistic for most people to have a perfectly flat midsection.

However, you still may want to vary your workout program. "It's great that you've found exercise that you enjoy, but you've gotten very efficient at Tae-Bo," Huff says. Introducing a new activity will challenge your body and may help you burn more calories, as long as the intensity and length of the workout is similar.

Over the years I've tried many methods recommended by both my friends and family but none of them seemed to work out for me until I chanced upon this holy grail where I've lost almost 33 pounds in just 1 month trying it out! I can now fit in dresses two sizes down and receive many compliments from not only my lovely husband, but colleagues and girlfriends about how great I look right now!

I have always been what most would consider a “big girl”. In January 2018, I weighed 180 lbs, which is quite overweight for a woman my height. I wasn’t always this weight though. In my teenage years, I weighed only 140 pounds and I felt much healthier and happier. I strived desperately over the years to get back to this weight.
