My stomach pokes out. Lol. What kind of exercises could I do to reduce the fat? I did start eating healthier than I used to and I also started jogging for at least 20 minutes a day.

- Save me, I'm lost. Oh lord, I've been waiting for you.

It's got some tips to get healthier.
Also, keep in mind that people are all different shapes and sizes, and that it may be something you learn to love rather than reduce [Smile]

omg. I am ab workout queen. know why? because I used to be (between ages 12-17, sad, I know)OBSESSED with getting a flat belly, even though I swam an average of 2.5 hours a day. I could even keep up with the high school boys at our gym training because I did so many outside swim practice. So imagine my dismay when they all got six packs AND I DIDN'T GET A FLAT TUMMY (or not the ones in the magazines) after doing the same exact workouts as them! So just a long-time veteran telling another sister, just in case, that it might be good just to be realistic of your goals (read: just aim for healthy), but I'm sure you've heard enough to be a smarter cookie than I was.

Anyway, doing it to stay healthy isn't a bad thing. Although I'm not a professional, I can just tell you what I've learned over my 5 long ad-obsessed years:
  • working out won't just target your abs, but improve, slim, and tone everything! that's not a bad thing if you think about it. There's no real way just to target abs. Ab workouts just give you great ab muscles

and you know what? sometimes guys like the stomach poke. they think it's cute. just one of the many conclusions I've come to from the many crazy surveys I do on campus.

"Love is the answer, but while you are waiting for the answer, sex raises some pretty good questions."
