Yeah, that might help, but it's more of an issue of your hips looking wider than your shoulders. Losing weight in the waist won't change that issue. Anyways, localised weight loss is impossible, so I'm sure you'll lose some weight in the hips as well. Good luck with the weight loss!! I just lost a little over 8lbs in the past month myself, so I know how hard it can be! Actually, it's not terribly hard once you're past the first week. Just cut all sugars, most carbs and continue to exercise. Keep eating lots of proteins like chicken breast to preserve any muscle you may have. One thing that helped most for me was intermittent fasting. Basically, I would eat every other day. One day I wouldn't eat anything, and the other I'd eat as much as I like, as long as it's mostly protein, low carb and no sugars. The day you can eat you'll only eat slightly more than normal, not nearly enough to make up for the day you didn't eat. You'll end up with about a 6000kcal deficit a week, meaning you'll lose about 2 pounds of fat a week. It sounds extreme, but the hunger subsides completely after a couple of hours, and you'll save loads of time by not having to prepare or eat any food. It gives you a sort of clarity of mind and focus, but that might just be a placebo effect. Anyways, it's just much easier than a normal diet, because there's no temptation to snack or 'fall off the wagon'. You know you're not going to eat for that day, so your willpower isn't constantly being tested/depleted during the day. Losing weight is really easy this way, and certainly much easier than gaining muscle, which is damn hard.
