    It looks like a perfectly normal human belly at your current weight. You could definitely change body comp and reduce fat that way easily since you have almost no muscle at all.

    Certainly does not look normal to me. You look very bloated. Hows your digestion?

    Looks totally normal. Lets be honest most people are sucking it in just a tad when they post their picks (which your second pic is). If it is truly a relaxed belly then it's gonna look like that. No worries unless you are having pain/tenderness, genitourinary or digestive abnormalities.

    Agree. "Don't let perfect be the enemy of good." Also, females tend to have soft bellies, washboard abs or even just a flat belly on a female is not the norm nor easy to achieve nor maintain for most women. Also I notice I definitely get bloated around TOM, for several days, possibly up to a week. It looks like a normal gut at that height/weight to me; the only way to lose it would be to lose more body fat, which means lifting weights a lot more and being even more careful with the diet.

    meh. see my comment above.

    The only other thing to do is to start eliminating certain foods to see if there is a specific bloat culprit in your diet.
    Also, how often do you pass stool? if not daily, you may need to fiber supplement. I take psyllium daily for guaranteed morning poo. Don't forget 64oz water daily. And/or list everything you eat in a week so we can maybe pick up any issues.

    The first picture does not look normal and others have even suggested she might have a tumor, so why am i getting singled out for asking how her digestion is??

    lol

    I felt like saying something more hostile myself

    PS another possibility is that since she has Celiac and has only been on a proper diet for 2 years, there may already be permanent damage done to the intestines, and there is simply chronic inflammation going on that is causing bloat.

    per wikipedia: "A tiny minority of patients suffer from refractory disease, which means they do not improve on a gluten-free diet. This may be because the disease has been present for so long that the intestines are no longer able to heal on diet alone, or because the patient is not adhering to the diet, or because the patient is consuming foods that are inadvertently contaminated with gluten. If alternative causes have been eliminated, steroids or immunosuppressants (such as azathioprine) may be considered in this scenario." it may be that the bloat, if truly abnormal, is possibly a sequelae of celiac disease. You may want to consult with a doctor.

    Does it look the same way in the morning when your stomach is pretty much empty? If so I'd get checked for fibriods. Btw even if that's what you have it's nothing to freak out about.
    My lower front side is much more pronounced in the evening when i'm done eating and drinking for the day, and more flat in the morning after a bathroom visit.
