6 pack abs require an extremely low body fat percentage for us women. A girl can still be extremely lean and not have a six pack. How many ridges or separations are visible in your midsection is dependent on genetics and the lower part of your abs may never appear.
According to me the way our butt look is a much better indicator to gauge a woman’s fitness. Some women can have visible abs but still have a kind of ‘flat butt’. The way our butt looks tells the true story about how we eat and train.
Glutes are the biggest muscle in our body. They play an important role in good posture and a pain-free back. Stop the 6-pack obsession and give a bit more attention to your back side!

I finally lost a pound!

The last week and a half, I’ve been steady at 209-210 on the scale.  Which is super discouraging, because I’ve been watching my eating and I started running about two weeks ago - something I’ve never done while trying to lose weight before.  I thought the added cardio would skyrocket my weight loss but till now the scale has stayed the same.

However, in running’s defense, I definitely looked smaller, so I probably lost inches and gained a little muscle, but still.  When you’re 80 lbs overweight, the fat loss takes a bit more of precedence over muscle gain. (Only a little bit though)
