Start a gym routine. Take a long walk after dinner. Stay active. Some of the belly stuff might be scar tissue from the pump sites. I have the same issue except im 22. But i have a tiny pouch in my belly from both shots and pump use. Excercise helps a lot

My weight gain is focused strictly thru my mid drift that's all.. Nothing to do with scar tissue, I don't put my pump there.. Any answers?
