Can I flatten my tummy without losing my curves (hips, thighs, buttocks) ?
I'm a size 2, urban model, looking to tone up my midsection without losing my feminine curves. I don't have much muscle tone now and I'm a beginner in the gym.

I agree with the post by Mr. Power. It is really difficult to have your body to the perfection that you want! It does stink that a person cannot spot reduce but the only way to flatten your stomach and see some definition in your abs is by losing fat. The fat will be lost from other areas of your body also. Some women tend to lose it in their chest or buttocks most but others don't. Each person's body responds differently to the stress placed on it. If your not an ab lover, I would suggest doing a workout video that is active and targets your mid section without leaving you bored or also running is a great way to target your abs.
Doing ab exercises will tighten the muscles, but it'll still be padded by your gut. Unless you plan on getting lipo, you're going to have to lose bodyfat overall to make a difference on your midsection. Luckily, studies have found that belly fat (as opposed to that on your thighs and rear) is easiest to lose. So, yes you can lose SOME weight on your stomach without affecting your "curves", but only to a point dictated by genetics. Past that "spot" fat reduction is nearly impossible.
