Stomach huge, hard to touch. Doing workouts. How to reduce excess fat?

I am 48 years old. My stomach is huge and when I let go and relax, it just grows and grows and it looks huge. It is hard to touch. Small amount on the lower part of fat. I walk everyday, Pilates and tennis workouts. When I push in with my fingers, they just bounce back. Should I see my doctor? This is going on now for about 5 years.
