I still have mine even after losing 40 lbs. It is hanging on for dear life and I imagine it will hang on right to the end and beyond. I know I will always have it, short of surgery but I would like it to shrink a bit.
I *think* what will happen is that it will hold on even once I reach my goal weight *but* will continue to shrink after I hit my maintenance weight while I continue with core work, cardio and a healthy diet. It may take up to 2 years to catch up with the rest of the changes to my body. So that's what I have to prepare myself for. Just make sure you're doing plenty of core work and exercises to work your transverse abs.
Hold in there. I would recommend that in the meantime you pay attention to the parts of your body that are making huge changes but it could be a long time before you see much change in that area. So divert your attention for now.

Take your focus off the Marshmallow. www.leangains.com/2010/01/marshmallo
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!
I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
