its not so much what you loose, its about toning the body, to what you feel is right for you, the middle is the last part to loose it,

hope this helps a little

Are you doing any stomach exercises to tone your stomach. This will flatten your tummy.

Im about the same height as you, But there is one thing i rarley do and thats weigh myself. The only time i know my weight is when im at the doctors.

Try not to focus to much on weighing yourself, All women come in different shapes and sizes even if they are the same height

 looking at your images i think your very beautiful and have fantastic figure, that most women would envy.

You certainly don't look like you are far off.

Generally, most photographers go by the NG Scale to measure weight and obesity. The more it makes (or is likely to make) Nick Giles vomit, the more overweight the "moddil" tends to be.

A camera is just a box, any image it produces emanates from the eye and mind of it's operator. Some people should have those eyes gouged out

Just check your BMI and you will know from that if you are underweight, the right weight or overweight.
Your doctor/nurse can tell you your BMI but no doubt there will be a way of checking it online.
Beauty is within the eye of the beholder!

BMI is rubbish for the most part. Relying solely on this is NOT a good idea.

When i was competing heavily in TKD events i was technically underweight as by their measurements (via both BMI calipers or the electro resistant thingies) i had 10% body fat. I got checked properly by my family sports doc and was actually at 16% but weighed almost 65kg (10 stone). At the moment my body fat % is 23 and i'm 56kg (8 stone . I used some fat calipers out of morbid curiosity and technically i'm obese! LOL! so that BMI stuff isn't really something to swear by.

A pound of fat and a pound of muscle still are a pound, no?

If you exert yourself more than the sum of what you consume per day, this will help in reducing general fat over your body. You cannot work out specific places. Sure you can tone your tummy by way of abdominal exercies but you won't really see it till you reduce your entire overall body fat %.
