I'm funny shaped - like an apple with toothpick legs.

i've been walking all summer. my legs are shrinking. my arms, well, we won't discuss them. but my stomache/belly/gut/tummy, etc won't shrink! it's still this gianormous being of nastiness. ok, i'm sure it's getting smaller, science works that way. this belly fat issue has been an issue for awhile for me, but now it's bothering me. i bought a size 16 pair of pants yesterday. they are just a bit snug in the waist, but loose in the legs. loose enough that i feel i could get away with a 14 if it weren't for my flabby tummy. i tried on an old pair of size 12 pants i have the other day, they went all the way up, but no chance in heck they were gonna come close to zippping or anything.
i'm tired of this. i know belly fat diets don't really work, they are a fad, but some of them have good eating guidelines, or what you should be eating. so i wrote those "superfoods" down and will incorporate more of them into my daily life. i try to eat whole wheat foods, but i do need to add more diary, beans, green veggies, etc into my diet. i'm hoping this will help my belly as well as the rest of me.
i know i drink too much alcohol and since summer is *almost* over i can now reduce that even more. i know that will help. i'm also going to snack betterand cut out sugars and bad snacks.
i'm tired of wearing pants that are too big everywhere but the waist.
anyone have any good advice or tips?
