You need to do cardio to burn fat as well as the crunches! 30 minutes of cardio a day is recommended, but you seem energetic so you could definitely do more. I like to take hour long walks at a brisk pace. That's something you could do!

You are not wasting you time at all.....your building ab muscles and that's great!  But if you can work in more fat burn between diet management and cardio exercise it will shed the fat and let those ab muscles shine through.  ; )
