Getting rid of back/hip fat.

I had my second son nearly 20 moths ago now and am finally down to a size 3 and weigh 117lbs. My whole body is pretty tone except this fat I have on the back side of my hips. It might be considered love handles, but any exercises I do for love handles doesn't work the area where the fat is at, it works my sides and not the back/hip area. I wish I could add pics to this that way I could just show you all what I'm talking about. But anyway, does anyone out there know the area I'm talking about and have a good exercise to work out this area, so I can get rid of the last bit of my baby fat? Please Help!!!

  • walk/run and suck it in as you do. do crunches.. etc. Invest in a Jillian Michaels DVD workout. 30 day SHred kicked my butt until i became pregnant. She is great and hardcore... try it out. And remb you are always your hardest critic. :)

  • fat is evenly distributed so you can't spot reduce however you can tone. I just got out of Physical therapy and they had me do side kicks and back kicks with weights on my ankles to tone those areas you mentioned.

  • I lost a lot of weight from taking acai and colon flush supplements. Also, with trying to fit in regular exercise a few times a week.

    My eating habits changed a lot when I began taking acai. It just gave me nice boosts of energy and made me feel satisfied after eating a small meal. I also began to eat healthier which helped a tremendous amount.
