Looks like you're still at a higher BF% for men, maybe 20-25% - you're still in the middle of your fat loss journey. Keep on keeping on, it'll come!

 

Also, be aware that lower stomach/abdomen fat is often the last to go, and first to come back - even very lean lifters struggle with that area.

^That

 

Also, depending on how long you have been eating at a deficit and how much weight you have lost, you may need to readjust your caloric intake.  When you lose a bunch of weight you naturally need less calories to fuel it, so the deficit you ran before becomes your body's happy baseline.  There can also be some metabolic things that wobble about, so if you're lifting you regularly you could also possibly *increase* your calories and lean out a bit.

Make sure that you are reviewing your diet and calorie intake, especially since you are starting weight training. If you keep up with your diet and exercise, then it's only a matter of time until the last of that fat goes away.

Totally agree, the love handle , lower ab section is hard to get ripped.

 

Don't give up though.

 

One thing you can try is taking in most of your carbs around your workout and then focusing on mostly protein fat and vegetables for the rest of the day.

 

Hope this Helps

Diet tends to be very dominant the first 80% of a weight loss journey.  As you near your goal, though, exercise tends to ramp up in importance.  It's a lot easier for muscles to show through the more you have.  Maybe ramp up your activity level/workout, and keep your diet clean and consistent.  The next 5# you lose might make a lot of difference.  The weight you are might be fine long term if your composition improves.
