Washboard abs

Confession time. Who else spends an inordinate amount of time in front of the bathroom mirror, naked, trying to spread out your belly with your hands in an effort to make it look flat?

I caught myself doing it again this morning. One hand above belly, one hand below, smoosh and spread. I'll stand there for a few minutes and imagine I really have a flat stomach. I even briefly consider using some duct tape to keep it that way.

Alas, as soon as I let go, the belly button fold returns. One of these days it's going to stay flat with or without hands or adhesive products. That day will be sweet indeed. Especially because I'll have more time on my hands instead of hanging around in the bathroom all day.

OMG! Me too! I find it helps if you squint too!
