Hi,Thanks for query.
Due to this long standing problem of having high fat is now difficult to reduce the fat.
You are doing quite good exercises.
Go for strict diet control as advice by Dietician.
To reduce fat from belly and breasts regularly go for abdominal muscle stretching exercise and pectoralis muscle exercise.
Rule out diabetes and hypo thyroid.
Ok and bye.
