Little love-handle: Seemingly this is the way your body is shaped/genetically determined. Since you are not overweight, weight loss is not really an option. Ab crunches and upper body strength training, kick-boxing etc, ..May help. Building some larger muscles in upper and lower body can help change the appearance/shape of your body. If all fails, a tummy-tuck could solve your problem. Consult doc. Good luck.
