I want to lose "my tyre"!

I am wanting to lose "my tyre" around my waist. What do you think the best way to do that is??? I have been told 5 times in the past 3 months that I am pregnant - which I am not! I have a 8.5 month old and a 3.5yo. I had two cesars and obviously just need to strengthen my core. I am doing a 1 hour reforma pilates class once a week and trying to walk everywhere weather permitting. When I remember and have the time I try and do 100 - 200 sit ups with my ab roller. And we have also just purchased a spin bike which again when I find the time I jump on it for 10 or so minutes at a time. My diet is not "too bad". I don't know what to do. I seem to have lost the weight eveywhere else it is just literally hanging around my waist. It is starting to really get me down - especially when people are calling me pregnant! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

I try and do 100 - 200 sit ups with my ab rollerWhen I read that I thought wow!!
I currently do 70 crunches per day and my stomach has gone from looking 3/4mths pg to flat as a pancake, I've had 7 children, last two pregnancies where back to back and my youngest is just 5mths old.
Are you really focusing on your core whilst your using the ab roller?? maybe it just isn't offering you the resistance you need.
Check out this link, exercise 2 shows how to work out ab muscles with a fit ball, you could rest your legs on our lounge for the same effect.
Initally I could only do 20 reps but I've worked myself up over the past 4wks to now doing as I wrote earlier 70, increasing daily.
HTH and good luck.
I just dug through my favourites and found these other exercises I love also and do for variety.

unfortunatly all those ab rolls and sit ups are not really going to be doing anything to reduce the size of your 'tyre'. The only thing to do to reduce it is lossing body fat from your body either from nutrition wise or *and including* fat burning exercise. By doing sit ups you are only strengthening and building muscle under the layers of stomache tissue...
I soooooooooo can sympathise with you too... after 3 c/sect and being really overweight during my first pregnancy I have given myself a reeeealy special apron AND tyre on my stomach that now jiggles more than my boobs when i run!! at least I can get a nice supportive bra!!!
So trust me I am in the same boat and spewin i have to work heaps hard to lose fatty tissue from around my middle cos it is that last place i lose it from... firstly its my bum, legs and bra...
