A quick 6 pack?? No: such thing ! Spot fat loss does not occur naturally. By losing weight in general some may be ab & thigh fat. But, we don't get to choose what area of body fat is lost from. Eat healthy & be physically active. Calories burned must > those consumed. Tighten ab's: crunches, reverse crunches, exercise ball crunches, pelvic thrusts, lying leg raises, side bridge & “bicycling” exercise on back.

Slow down: Don't try and lose a lot of weight in a hurry - it will only go back. Go online and see "NuVal" - you will find food that is good, not too bad, and bad for you. There are other similar articles on the web. Weigh your self (no clothes on) once week and plan to lose 2-4 lbs a month. Exercise regularly.
