How to reduce the size of tummy ?

Iam 51 years old and weigh 77kgs.Iam not diabetic or hypertense.Recently I have lost 6 kgs and my weight stabilized at 77 kgs which works out to a BMI of 25 as my height is 5’10”.I maintain regular exercise -aerobics, strength training , abdominal exercises and evening walk of 4 kms.I eat selectively without oil,less Non veg,less sweets,more fruit and water ,steamed vegetables,sprouts,Almonds(4 nos) and 1 egg white .When I go to gym I take whey protein of 30 gms. My problem is with my stomach muscles.Inspite of my exercise and moderate food habits I have a stomach of 36 inches.When I sit down I have to adjust my belt by changing the hole.When I wear underwear I feel very tight in abdominal area.Thats why I stopped wearing underwaear except when I exercise. I consulted a specialist who is into weight loss surgery like gastric band and sleeve who initially suggested to go for liposuction.When I requested for a non surgical solution he offered me a complimentary session on Radio frequency Tripolar machine.He promised that I will loose 2 inches over 6 sittings.For each sitting there should be a gap of 2 weeks.He says the skin also will be tightened apart from fat reduction in the tissues.I have also read that this can be done by Ultrasound Lipolysis and Zerona laser treatments. Please suggest me which is ideal for reducing my stomach sag.

Hi,
Welcome to HCM.
You seem to be over straining your self in trying to maintain a good figure. To a certain level it is acceptable but beyond that it could do you more harm than good.
Best is to learn to adjust to our body and live with it.
If you are still concerned about your sagging protuberant belly, laser treatment seems to be more promising.
Personally I feel you should not over do it.
Wish you all the best.

My 15 year old daughter has occasional severe lower abdominal pain. She will feel the need to urinate and then won t be able to. She ends up with severe pain, curled up in a ball crying. This happens to her about once a month or so. We have a urologist who has conducted every test there is (invasive and otherwise) and everything comes back as normal. Any suggestions on what our next step should be. We ve been with the urologist for about a year. She s seen a gynecologist and all tests were negative. She also saw a doctor to see if she had diabetes, again negative.
