Try hula hooping! (with a weighted hula hoop used for fitness, not one of the flimsy ones for kids) Using all of those abdominal and back muscles creates a corset effect which might help whittle your waist!

You can't spot reduce so you are just going to have to slim down over all your do this by building more muscle i.e. doing more resistance exercises on your body.

I'm targeting my waist as well... This trainer at a barre3 class was saying oblique exercises aren't bad for the waist at all, but because they build up the muscle it gives you less definition. Therefore, the muscle you're trying to target is the transverse abdominus, your inner ab muscle.

Pilates rolls are really good for that. Also, lots of cardio. I'm just starting my waist trimming journey so I'll let you know!

Pinterest is great for workout ideas!
2C with occasional moments of 3A; very, very thick fine hair and low porosity.
