i hear ya though...i've lost 80-90 pounds since my dd was born and am much thinner than what i was before i got pregnant and could probably wear a size smaller in pants if i was pouchless . it's got down an amazing amount though since i've lost all that weight.
I found that belly dancing helped a bit, but the results plateaued pretty quickly. My abs are SUPER strong (probably from having to heal after diastasis), but that skin is still there.
I never understood why women would feel the need for a tummy tuck...now I know! lol I plan to have several more kids, so I'll wait until I'm all finished, but then I think I'll be saving up for a tuck!

I found that link. According to, crunches don't work because they're working the wrong muscles... these are for the transverse muscles. I am going to try it. I gained 80 lbs (50 were water weight) w/ my pregnancy and am currently down to a size 10 in GAP jeans (I don't have a scale so I do it by pant sizes ), so I prolly weigh 170...anyway I have the tummy tire instead of the pooch... let me know if this works for you.
Oh wait, the loose skin...yeah, tummy tuck is the only cure for that apparently. Saving my money...after the next kid. DP doesn't believe me though--I mean, that you need a tuck to get rid of loose skin. Weirdo.
