    Man I have read about four threads on AR lately from guys talking about various physical appearance problems. I hate to say this and sound insensitive, but I am so glad we woman aren't the only ones concerned with looks. But in all sincerity, I have read about stretch marks, califlower ear, tongue piercing, and now scars. I want to say in all honesty I don't think most girls care about that stuff as much as you think, cleanliness, clean teeth and breath, yeah....Acne scars really wouldn't bother me near as much as the acne. My ex had acne scars on his back and shoulders, i loved it, just because I loved him, I thought even his flaws were perfect. If a girl is in to you then she wont care at all. I know you weren't asking if girls dig em at all, I just wanted to tell you that. I hope you find a remedy if that will make you happy....

    I believe you are 100% correct in everything you said. I get very little acne during cycling, but the wife loves it when I cycle and she says the acne doesn't bother her at all whatsoever. By the way, your abs look nice girl.

    This pic was in July I think. Let me post a more recent mid section you might not agree. I know it's not fat fat, but I think it is the whole BB thing when competing you go from 7% BF to 13%, it messes with your head.

    Speaking of Acne I am really nervous about starting my first cycle, the main reason, not death to myself or others, not destruction, not even a little hair on my chest...but I would die if I got acne! I know I am a hypocrite and a petty one at that. Guys just dont look bad with acne even on the body, but agirl with body acne, my crystal clear skin? Say goodbye I guess.

    I would use a short acting ester in that case. That way the sides would go a way more quickly.

    texas girl. i dont think you are a hypocrite..but im telling you...if i ever met a girl who actually did cycles and looked as amazing as you with such an outlook i think i would die lol...so im glad i havent met you (backwards compliment). even at 13% bodtfat im sure you look amazing. there is nothing wrong with some fat on a girl...and if you competed before you know how o get back to where you were...soo goodluck with your latest competiion when you go into it. from teh way you talk and conduct yourself i think you will do fantastic...if not in placing then mentally.

    acne isnt an issue for me from my cycles...its from my natural body bing retarded about 2 years ago..and it nailed me on my inner biceps and my lowerback and thats it...none on my face which i am happy of...but its still dicouraging sometimes if someone points it out and you have to explain it..i dont know hahaha
