Back on creatine; Dealing with problem areas.

I like to cycle my creatine use; I seem to get better results when I take a break from using it. I’ve been cycled off creatine for almost 2 months, so I’m going to resume taking it today. I’ll put on some weight as a result, but it will be lean mass and not fat so that’s cool. After Tuesday’s incredible workout, I’m really excited about adding creatine back into the mix because that should improve my strength even more. I’ll need it, because I’m probably going to cut another 100-150 calories from my daily caloric intake very soon. I’m gaining strength and not losing much weight at my current caloric levels.

I was looking at myself in the mirror yesterday after my abs workout and I’m actually fairly happy with my overall body fat percentage and how I look right now, but I’ve got that damned fat roll just below my belly button that (IMO) ruins my physique. It’s amazing how drastic the difference is: I’ve got a nice, flat washboard mid-section all the way down to my belly button and then BOOM – a roll of fat. My body just likes to put fat in that little area first, and it’s always the last to go (but I’ve never got rid of it completely, even when I was down to 8% body fat). It sucks, because I would be almost done cutting if it were not for that fat roll. Unfortunately I have to keep dieting down to ridiculous levels to get rid of it as best I can. It’s frustrating to work so hard and have one thing prevent you from obtaining the physique you desire. I don’t know what the answer is. Some have suggested lipo is the only solution, but to me that’s not an option due to the health risks. When vanity take precedence over your health, something’s seriously wrong. I guess the main reason I’m bring all this up is because it’s important to not let your genetic limitations and problem areas deter you from your fitness goals. I realize that no matter what I do I may never entirely get rid of the damned fat roll that has plagued me for most of my life, but I don’t let my problem area stop me from giving 100%, or use it as an excuse to give up.
