Okay, I am incredibly frustrated at the moment. I have recently undergone a huge weight loss program and am now in the most active shape of my life. Everything is well except my belly fat.

It depends on genes. Some people store fat in their belly and/or in their thighs, arms... you name it. Some store it everywhere and some can eat whatever and will be slim anyway, not fair ;)
When you excercise an area, it strengtens your muscles in that particular area, but will do NOTHING about the fat. For example you can have great muscles in your abs but if belly is your problem area the muscles won't even be revealed because of fat.
When your excercise (e.g. on eliptical machine, jogging etc), the fat in your body goes away progressively, and your "problem" areas will lose it in the end or, in the worse case, never.
I have the same problem as you do, can't do much about it as long as I don't starve myself to death or go for liposuction. Just for the record, I am 5"6', 114 lbs, 18% body fat, and still have the belly! My grandma, who is super slim, like 100 lbs her whole life, has it too...
I can't speak for everybody out there of course, but I read stuff, did my research and can speak from my experience... it sucks. I am actually contemplating a liposuction right now.
