Doing a combination of cardio and strength exercises for my core have helped me. It has been a slow process though and I still have a little ways to go. I hope that you see some changes by the time you reach your goal weight.
My tummy was in bad shape when I first started working out. You couldn't really tell it just by looking at me but my tummy felt hollow and squishy, like there was no muscle tone at all. If I leaned over my tummy looked like an old lady with all this flabby skin hanging down. I felt gross. My tummy still sags when I lean over and there's still a little hangover where my csection scar is but my abs are so much stronger now.
My tummy is probably in the best shape it's been in ever. I'm doing things a little differently now than I did in the past. One thing is I am doing weighted crunches now and I used to not use weights for my crunches. I think that has made a big difference for me. Also, I agree with Kelsey. I think my overall muscle tone has improved and that has helped me to burn fat. I think doing strength training in general, not just for your belly, will help you to burn fat. I think cardio is also very important because that will burn the fat off your belly. I always talk to myself every time I do cardio and tell myself I am burning a millimeter of fat off my body each time. LOL. I think you'll see a difference if you do some type of cardio and some type of strength training. I'd also suggest taking pictures of yourself because sometimes you ARE making changes and you just don't see them. I swear if I hadn't taken pictures of myself over the last 12 weeks I would have thought I hadn't accomplished anything.
