    Why does my stomach always look swollen/bloated

    Sorry for posting yet another question thread but this has been bothering me for some time. I have an "online" trainer, someone who creates my meal plans and workout things and such but anyway, I am 5ft2 and around 135 lbs. I am trying to lose weight but even when I was smaller, my belly ALWAYS looked bloated/swollen like I'm about to have a small baby or something haha. It's horrible and never goes down =[ I've never really had a flat stomach. Maybe it's nothing and just fat I need to get rid of but I decided to ask here to get more opinions than just 1. Is this something I should ask my doctor about or something I can do with exercise?

    Here's a photo of what I mean (be warned

    Your belly doesn't look significantly bloated to me. However, I'd just like to ask if that side view is you in regular standing posture or not. You have quite an excessive arch in your lower back (lordosis) which tends to give the appearance of a pot-belly in people.
