Even after two months of rigorously working out, eight extra pounds and a "jelly belly" remain. Because sculpting the core takes months, I better get ready for the long haul.
If you battle the same "jelly belly" as I do, try to hide your tummy with clothes in the mean time. Dressing properly erases inches off of your waist.

How to Hide a Postnatal Belly with Clothes:
1. Don a long shirt.
Long shirts cover up bellies -- a no brainer.
Also, if you breastfeed, button ups provide convenience.
2. Put on dark leggings.
They are sleek and comfortable. Elastic waist band, anyone?
3. Wear cool shoes.
A pair of sexy boots takes attention away from the middle area.
4. Go dark with layering objects.
Layering with a dark jacket, cardigan or -- in my case here -- blazer cuts down your frame, which further slenderizes.
