In brief: Lose more weight.

Having six pack abs means that you have little or no fat overlying your muscles.
You can have the strongest abs in the world but if they are concealed by a layer of adipose tissue, they won't show. For men, this means being at or near their ideal bmi. For women it actually means they have less than what might be healthy for them. Keep doing what you are doing. You're on the right track.

In brief: Understandable

Belly fat is very hard to lose.
Making the abdominal muscles very toned and strong under the fat will not make it go away. Will take getting weight down to optimum range. If at a normal (bmi <25) weight and still unable to get rid of the fat, either be patient, since the body changes took years to happen, or get a liposuction.
