How Can I Get Rid of Belly Fat After a Pregnancy?

I had my second baby 2 months ago. I've watched what I eat. I have lost inches in my thighs and butt, and really toned up my arms, but none of the pregnancy weight on my midsection has come off. My belly and love handles bulge out of the top of my jeans even though my lower half looks slim and toned. It looks like I've lost my curves and I hate it. Help?

Could it be diastasis recti rather than fat? If so, doing crunches and similar ab exercises can actually hurt rather than help.

ANd yes to what missmason said, diastasis recti can make a bulge too...check into it and see if you have it. If so , there are splints you can wrap around your tummy to help bring those muscles in.

It's me and DH
