It might be a good idea to use a measuring tape every few weeks to track any incremental differences that your eyes might not catch.

It will depend on how much weight you need to lose, belly fat tends to take forever.

Stress can also be a cause of not loosing belly fat. Do you have excessive stress? If yes then it is good to practice yoga/meditation. Always think positive.

Eating healthy is awesome! Good work on that, but quantity matters too! Try tracking calories also, and starting weighing your meals. It is common to underestimate how many calories you've eaten

Where we lose is primarily genetic; spot-reduction isn't possible. If you're one of those "lucky" folks who holds weight in your stomach, you likely will not lose it until the very last.

Exercise is helpful, but great abs are made in the kitchen; what's your diet like? A diet high in sodium, for example, causes bloating and water retention, and can make your belly look larger than it is.

Eating healthy is good, but you need to be eating fewer calories than you burn... how are you tracking? It's still possible to overeat on a healthy diet.

Fat loss is a total body process. As you lose fat overall, it will gradually come from your belly. Take measurements; often you are making more progress than you think!
