Do you have to do sit ups and crunches to lose belly fat?

I don't like doing situps but I like cardio. I do more of the eliptical. I'm 5'0 and 112 pounds female. I still have more belly fat than I want. If I just do cardio and lose 10 pounds will my stomach be smaller or will mosr likely be the same without doing stomach exercises?

    You can't target where the weight you want to lose is. Those exercises might "tone you up", but that's about it, and of course if you do them enough, you will enjoy weight loss all over your body.
