Any specific exercises for women to reduce belly fat?

I was successful in reducing 16 pounds. But I am not able to reduce the fat around my stomach. As I am suffering from GERD, I cannot weight train or jog. The only exercise regimen I regularly follow is walking.

I am worried that if I decide to have a baby, I am going to suffer 9 months of GERD hell. Any woman who went through pregnancy with Gerd ?

History - 29 yrs old, Gerd diagnosed in January,weaning off Zantac

Thanks

Stationary bike, elliptical, rowing, astanga yoga... anything that gets your heart rate up. Cardio is the only way to rid yourself of that belly fat. You can strenthen and tone the mucles underneath, but the fat will remain.
 
Also, I find that I can run if I wait until 2 hours after I eat.

Can you not do weight training at all, or just not exercises when you lay down?

I haven't been pregnant so I can't answer your other question.

Take care,
Ashley

I wonder the same thing. I am also 29 years old and I have avoided pregnancy because I am scared to death that I will be in hell the whole 9 months as I already have reflux issues. But I just got married so I know that I have to figure all this out soon. I lost a lot of weight simply by going gluten free. I only walk also because of the reflux. My diet consists of mostly lean protein, vegetables that are non acidic as well as non acidic fruit. If I eat any statch, it is red potatoes or gluten free pasta or rice.
Diagnosed GERD, no other medical conditions (this one is enough)

Thanks for the replies.

@aeshleyrose - I will try some cardio exercises at the gym. I always feel dizsy after 15 minutes.

@ericapeace2000 - I heard that its "ok" to take PPI's during pregnancy. The other issue which bothers me is I am anemic. PPI inhibits iron/B12 absorption, I am worried about anemia related problems. I think there is no other option - moderate diet/ ppi use till the baby is born. Once the baby is born we have to wean ourselves off PPI.

I'm already on ppi medication and it helps but I still have some symptoms that are mild. This scares me for pregnancy. Even on the ppi now I'm not great, what will happen during pregnancy....

Hey New! It might be that you're doing too much too quickly. I get it excited and do too much sometimes even now! It might feel lame to be walking slowly on a treadmill while the person next to you runs at a sprint but you've gotta crawl before you can walk!

Best of luck to you :)
