having trouble losing extra fat please help!


i have been trying to lose weight/lose fat/ tone up since about April and it has been very successful, I have lost about 15 pounds and lots of belly fat! however, i cannot seem to lose the fat around my sides and my muffin top! my stomach looks so toned besides that area! i have cut calories and work out every day and it has worked for my body everywhere besides my muffin top! any advice? nothing seems to work for that particular area!
