Say if you eat clean regularly and really give your abs hell. A year.

U want a 6 pack for summer I'm asumming. It's poasiible. Idk what your body fat % is but if your close to 15%, 5 months is doable. Heavy squats and deadlifts will work your core harder than any crunch.

Not even a six pack I just want it be visibly flatter and toner. Thanks I'll try that!

Hey man 15% for women is pretty ripped and any low than that you're talking essential fat what she wants can be achieved at 20% bodyfat, women need more fat to be alive

If you're only doing ab exercises, it'll probably take a pretty long time.

Any suggestions on other things or exercises or foods that would help?

I'll chime in here when I get a moment to sit down and say something coherent.

In the meantime my *JackD* The Cheese Grater workout is pretty good I must say. (I promise that is not whorish self promotion )

You're fine lol and thank you! I just liked it. I'm either going to start doing exercises tonight or tomorrow. I've just been trying to get a feel for the site, get info, and find workouts that I may like.

Hang on to your hat lady...I'm going to give you the secret to abs...NUTRITION.  lol.
You'll hear it 1,624 times, the key to abs is 80% diet 20% exercise. So what to eat? Me personally I try to have lots of protein with every meal. I drink tons of water (almost 1 gallon a day). My "sweets" are mainly fruits ( don't deny yourself chocolate. I will NOT be responsible for that wrath).  Also lots of fiber. Pooping is good for your abs (gross but true). Also stick to whole grains and cut down your carb portions. That's the basics, as you research and get further into your journey you'll find different things that work best for you. Exercise will help to keep you toned and firm, and allow you to see the benefits of your healthier decisions.  Good luck :) have fun!

Also, this chick here doesn't mess around! : Your Abs Will Cry

Unfortunately, you cannot spot reduce, your body decides where fat comes off.  And it's pretty efficient at balancing the amount of fat loss from your whole body, therefore to get abs you need to reduce overall fat.  High intensity interval training is good because it burns fat.  Also, exercises that require your largest muscle groups, and multiple muscle groups are optimal.  Exercises like dumbell squats into a bicep curl and overhead press, or burpees that patterned as follows: squat to the ground, kick legs back, push-up, dumbell row right, push-up, dumbell row left, push-up, legs in stand.  See how many of those you can do in 10 minutes!
