  • I can see my abs!

    So after the shower, sun coming in the window at the right angle, I'm doing my hair and realize.... I have abs! I can SEE my ABS!!! Holy cow!!!!

    Ok so still got the belly in front, but on the sides, I can see the shape of the obliques when I flex.

    I can't believe it.

    I haven't been working them specifically but have been very much aware of improved tone through my torso (I can just feel it... hard to explain), and my hips are wider than my waist.... but to actually SEE muscles....

    wow happy dance!!!!!!

    So glad I can tell you guys, if I put it on facebook my family would be like, wtf?

    I really have abs!!!!

                  lolz thanks for the props dunno about pictures though.... I'll think about it! ha ha.

                  I shoulda done a 'before' photo - there didn't seem to be much point really since I didn't think I was that overweight - you don't really realize how squidgy you are getting around the middle until you lose it!

                    yeah im in the same boat - albeit behind u in the sense that ive lost lots of weight around the abs but now i can see ive got lots more to go before the abs become visible .. pre-primal i would have just thought i a matter of a few kgs ...

                    the new body self awareness is a real positive i reckon !

                        Awesome! Congrats! I'm actually in the same boat where I can start seeing some definintion. I have NEVER been able to see my abs (never even close really).

                        I also shaved (trimmed, not bare) my chest yesterday so that I can have a better look at them, hahah (I'm a man, and have quite the hairy chest).

                        Anyhow, I'm so excited. I can't wait for summer because I anticipate looking pretty good if this keeps up.

                        I can't help looking in the mirror. No gut and abs are starting to form. Crazy!

                              I have a hard time believeing that there is some definition in my midsection. It is 4-packish but it is still there. Even at my fittest in high school was I able to see any definition in my abs. Needless my wife gets annoyed when I stop and look at myself in the mirror. I think I am at my lowest BF and highest fitness in my life so I still can't believe it.
