I'm a large framed 5'8 female. had my baby 8 months ago. I've lost 62 pounds so far...but, it's not enough. I'm serving in the military and I've just failed my PT Test bc I couldn't get the waist down enough. I'm four inches over the Maxx. Frustrated as Heck. I work out 6 days a week vigoruously, nursing almost exclusively. She's starting to take to baby food. And eating as healthy as possible but, its not coming off fast enough. I'm so frustrated and embarrassed. Our Unit Fitness Leader is pregnant and she's 1/3 of the size I was pregnant and I worked out religously every day...There are three other gals close to me who have had babies recently and two passed thier test with flying colors! while i'm feeling like a wildabeast fat patty who can't pass the dang gon waist. Seriously?! I need to lose 4 inches no joke in three weeks.View Thread
