Do you really want to lose the belly and love handles? Stop doing this one thing...

Just make it STOP, please. Nowadays you just cannot enter any gym without seeing scores of newbies doing sets of HUNDREDS of CRUNCHES and leg raises...
People need to be told in big bold letters that doing ab crunches will not magically burn your belly fat!

Do you think the lady above got in the shape she is in by doing crunches? ummm....no. You can afford crunches after you manage to lower the body fat to acceptable levels.
You might get a six pack underneath that belly but the said six pack will never be visible. What you need to concentrate instead in the gym and in your day to day life is reducing your OVERALL body fat percentage. How you do that? Get inspiration form the paleolithic diet: meat, fruit, eggs. Keep it simple. Do not sweat it if you occasionally have a pizza. Or a doughnut. Or a huge burger.

If you feel you are overeating, skip breakfast, and wait as much as possible. Cut sugar out of your diet. Seriously, it is quite easy. Especially stay away from sugary drinks! Healthy fruit drinks INCLUDED! They still contain sugars.
When it comes to exercising you can be a cardio bunny, but you might be much better off doing the following strength training exercises WITH PERFECT FORM: 

1) Bar squat in the squat rack. 4 sets of 12-14 reps, 3 minutes breaks in between. Start light, very light! Do not use weights that you cannot do at least 12 correct reps with. Inform yourself about the correct form!

2) Deadlifts or Romanian Deadlifts. Your lower back, glutes and legs will thank you for it. Correct form and lower weights are essential.

Optional:
3) Bench press and assisted pullups /pullups (if you can do them).
