    I don't think you should have cut in the first place and I definitely don't think you should be cutting now. Bulk, you're 18 and full of testosterone.

    I agree with him ^^^. You don't need to cut, unless you want to look like some circus freak.

    Ok thanks, I will get back to bulking (really happy about that). I just wanted to see abs since it was a life long goal xd. But now that I kind of have them, I think I'm happy.

    It's all right man! It's just what I needed. I've got a bad history with cutting since on my first cut, I lost around 20kgs/40lbs and didn't know when to stop. I was skeletal but wouldn't stop since I didnt see my abs. I went to this forums and Im so glad people told me that I was looking so thin.

    Sorry for replying so much, but what do you recommend to get abs? Or should I first set a goal weight? If so, which goal weight?? Thank you.

    You didn't see your "abs" because you don't have "abs".

    "Abs" are abdominal ~muscles~ and like any other muscle group on your body, they need to be built up before they are going to look impressive. If you have never worked to build up your arms, then you wouldn't expect to have "huge bulging biceps" just from losing some fat so why do you think that you will have ripped, defined abdominal muscles from just dropping 20+ pounds of fat?

    If you want "Abs" then you need to put in a couple of years of hard work weight training to build up your body as a whole and develop them.

    Interesting - it turns up on here as a self diagnosis all the time in normal looking individuals. Yours is pretty mild I assume? Does it present you with many limitations in your workouts?

    I know, I know, that's exactly what they told me and made me stop. I didn't know at the time.

    Mine is mild yes, but I gotta say the angle which I took the photos doesn't really show it that much. It doesn't present any limitations whatsoever. Most cases of pectus excavatum are pure aesthetic (mine included! ). Found out when I first lost 40lbs of fat, I hadn't realised until then because the fat was covering it. So yeah, it went unoticed for over 17 years.
