What is it like to have a six pack being a girl?

I have a mixed reaction.

I'm already pretty masculine on a lot of fronts; the name I use publically (Frankie), my interests (mechanical work, sword fighting), my hobbies (working out, MMOs). So having a six-pack is just another thing that causes people to look twice.

I enjoy being strong. Having abs isn't something I actively work towards, but instead is a result of a good diet and plenty of physical activity. And yes, there is the gratification of being able to check a six pack off the bucket list.

However, I find plenty of people are worried or offended by my physique. Friends have offered help, concerned that I may have an eating disorder (I don't). New acquaintances nearly always assume I am lesbian (which I'm not, and have no qualms with, until the same person inquires 3–4 times- just to be sure), because what straight woman would want to look like me? I won't wear a two piece bathing suit anymore after an incident in which I overheard a man remark to his friend that I looked like a freak, and a ‘painful fuck.' I guess the objectification there is my own fault for having an ‘abnormal' body type (sarcastic snort).

But to be honest, I like having a six pack. My current SO was a bit shocked the first time we were in bed, but it never caused a problem for us. I have had both guys and girls act oddly standoffish toward me, and my best guess is that I made them feel they had to prove something, but no decent human beings make a big deal of it. All in all, a six pack is overrated, but I allow myself a small guilty pleasure- my vanity, limited to my physique.

What are ways of calculating weight loss?

If someone loses 1lb of fat, they have, by definition, lost around 3500 kilo-calories of fat. As far as I know, there's no alternate accounting for fat loss aside from conversion to other measures (e.g. Joules) because the basis of the numbers are rooted in physics and chemistry.
