I've been running a slightly modded version of Starting Strength (dips added on 'A' day, with BB rows (instead of cleans) and pullups on 'B' day) for 8 weeks after having been off of it for 30 days. I've ran the program for some time, but only in the last 5-6 months have I been eating enough to allow the kind of growth SS should provide. I'm fairly skinny fat at the moment, and I'm torn between trying to cut to look a bit better or continue the bulk. It's hard to maintain any level of motivation when you have to look at a flabby mess in the mirror every day.
I am 19 years old, weigh 182 pounds, 5'11, and not sure on BF%.
Lift PRs are:
I'm not trying to get super ripped, and I don't even expect abs at the moment, but I look pretty sad right now. Based on what lean mass I have, if I tried to cut, would I see any more definition? Or would I just look like a smaller version of what I am now?

I see he also started with poor body composition and from what I can tell, little lean mass. While he ended up small, he did an excellent job of cutting and maintaining what muscle he had. Did he have considerably more lean mass than me from what you guys can tell?
Thanks a bunch.
