There are many possible reasons: 1) Just because you have lost 70 lbs does not mean it will leave certain spots like your tummy and buttocks. If you have a lot to loose, it may take a long time to see a difference in your midsection. This is all contingent on your fat stores. Your body mass can change with increased muscle under the fat and that adds to the problem. My fat stores are in my thighs so that changed more than my midriff. 2) You could be retaining fluid in your abdomin because of heat, if you walk outdoors, 3) if you are eating more sodium than is normal you may have excess swelling in your abdomen, 4) If you are doing abdominal exercises wrong your abdomen can get bigger. 5) increasing fiber or consuming products that have artificial sweetners can cause bloating in the belly.
Hope some of these will help! The more you loose the more this problem will go away. I lost a lot of weight before my midrif measurments would budge.
God bless you!
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.
