I definitely don't want to fail this next PRT. I've worked way too hard just to get into the Navy (not to mention to get through A-school) that it would be the biggest failure of my life if I were to get kicked out. The sad thing is I know exactly what caused my weight re-gain and just seemed incapable of fighting it...I let the stress of my A-school, the lack of "convienent" healthy food options on base, and the time constraints get to me and got myself in a bad spot that was hard to get out of. I can be pretty sure that I won't pass the BCA by weight (unless you know a trick to lose 80 lbs in just under six months) so the trick will be to pass by tape...which will require me to lose either approximately 8 inches from my waist...gain 8 inches to my neck...or (the most likely) a combination of the two. I don't think its impossible...just tough. If you know any good exercises for losing inches waist-wise or gaining neck-wise I would appreciate them....

Well, that was about 7 yrs ago for me, so I don't remember much. All I can say is don't let yourself fail that next PRT, you will regret it. They will seperate you if you fail it and you will not be able to get back in. If you send me some specifics about your situation I might be able to give you some tricks and tips for passing your next PRT.

I was just wondering for those already in: Did anyone else have a whole bunch of trouble keeping the weight off in A-school? Granted my A-school was over a year long and involved a lot of sitting in a classroom for six to seven hours a day...but I've completely blown all the hard work I did to get in. I've done so poorly that I'm only one more failed PRT (BCA portion) from getting kicked out. Anyone else have this problem in A-school or am I just "special"?
