Cardio Mix: You can not target the abdomen or thighs specifically for weight loss - if you have adipose tissue to lose , then consider an increase in cardio and a balanced diet. However, do not always do the same exercise or you will increase your risks for stress injuries. Mix things up with walking, running, biking, swimming, or circuit training. Ultimately you need to burn more than you consume.

Decrease calories: You are doing great. To add the flatter belly you may need to increase the intensity of your exercise or consider running at a slow speed. Ultimately you may be genetically predisposed to fat deposition in the belly area and may benefit from some liposuction.
