(My question is 100% serious, I am not trolling) I am 5'5, 120 lbs roughly. I have a flat stomach and I am fairly fit. I have been trying to get abs for a year now and it won't happen for me. the only time I am even okay with looking at my stomach is when I Haven't eaten in a day or so or have eaten less than a meal. I generally eat everyday but I feel disgusting most of the time. my ribs are not at all sticking out or anything like that and I eat quite well. why can't I accept how I look and why can't I get abs? do I have a problem mentally? help...

Some people can't get abs. Just how there body works. I've done a lot of sports where you have to cut weight. Like wrestling and BJJ. I know guys who are in amazing shape but will never get a six pack even if they cut 25 plus pounds. It's just the way there body is. Some people have them naturally. I still have a six pack when I haven't trained in months and when I do train I get an eight pack. But, that's my body and it just happens.
All that being said you might just want to step up the training if abs are that important to you. Join a kick boxing class. I mean a good one too, they do CRAZY core work outs. When you do sit ups grab 10 - 25 ibs and do sit ups with tho's on you're chest. Start doing invited sit ups. Try short crunches instead of full sit ups.1
