My BMI is 29.8 and i'm fat with water weight. I swish when i walk. How can I get rid of this and 35lbs?

Age17 weight133 BMI 21.5 1 hour of cardio2-3 times a week, P90X ab workout 3-4 times a week, healthy eating, lots of water. How long until I have abs?

Truth is, most of the "6-packs" you see out there were liposuctioned. ...Read more
