So wait, your abs don't show at 7-8%? I thought they showed for any value under 10%. May need to tweak my goals...(currently at 13%, trying to get to 10%)

-MINIMAL fruit, nuts, dark chocolate, alcohol (my weaknesses)
--> Going all in for 100%, but am not going to torture myself either
Yes, don't torture yourself because as previous posters have noted, if your body is at a place where it wants to be (% of body fat), it will not only resist further loss but will actually try to promote gain once you get there. You may get to your goal and find that you can't remain there for long.
Also, don't compare yourself to other people, you'll go crazy. Everyone's body is different, everyone's life circumstances are different.
Good luck! I hope you get there soonest.
