A few years back before I turned 40 I started training for triathlons and do 4-5 a year from sprint to half iron distances.
I had the same stubborn area around my waist and lower back.
Swimming I think has had the biggest impact shaving that off and running 15-20 miles a week helps too.
I havent lost any weight (due to muscle gain?) but my waist is 2 inches smaller. Im 5-11 180 lbs.
Again nice work, keep it up.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president." Author Unknown
