Read up in this first, then look into everything you can on 'cutting' on this site.
You're gonna need to get your diet in check in order to lose weight. How far over are you when you get taped?

Im sure its your diet. Just eat clean and keep running and working out. Boot camp will shrink the rest of the gut!! Good luck!!

That's all you need to do.
Amazing what will happen when you put down the fork.

Keep us updated on your progress, I can tell you exactly when you are ready if you keep us posted on your neck and waist measurements, also whats your age group and height? I was a master fitness trainer when I was in the army and part of my job was to measure soldiers that where overweight to determine if their BF% was within standards.

Diet is key, take in slightly less calories than your maintenance and supplement that with some exercise.....

One of the biggest mistakes people make when joining the service is not being in shape.Its almost like coming to a job interview with baggy jeans and a tank top. Basically its a set up for failure.
They will take you but you will end up not getting promoted etc. So If possible my advice would be to get completely in shape before starting boot camp. You don't need to be Mr. Fitness but you should be able to run a couple miles, do more than 5 pull ups with bodyweight, and be close to height/weight military standards.
