Q. Is it healthy to have a soft belly?

I do not have a huge belly, but it is round and soft with no muscle tone with a fat layer.
AThe fat is more problematic than the muscle tone, and it's considered as a risk factor for heart diseases and others. Low muscle tone or strength of the muscles of the abdomen may lead to problems like hyperlordosis (lower back that is too curved backward) but these are usually treated, if necessary by strengthening these muscles, so usually it doesn't pose a substantial risk.

Q. For the past 6 months I have been trying to loose weight.

For the past 6 months I have been trying to loose weight and I succeeded in that. But I feel to be heavy now. Why did this happened? Or is it just a feel?
