Hormones drive the deposition of fat around the bellies of men. Men tend to store excess fat in the visceral, or abdominal, region. Abdominal fat breaks down more easily and enters the chemical processes related to disease quicker than fat located in other parts of the body. Exercise targeting at co-contraction of transversus abdominis and lumbar multifidi muscles will help reduce fat deposition

You're doing the right thing, just be patient and keep it up. Cardiovascular exercise is a great way to reduce the belly fat and keep your other numbers in check.
