Love this statement!!
I totally agree with BTB. Bodybuilders take years, and decades, to perfect their bodies, diets, and routines. Don't be so hard on yourself...I wish patience could be a supplement.
A good full body routine (lots on this site), 2 or 3 times a week, would be a good place to start (along with the cardio as BTB said).
I've been trying to lean out myself. My first month was no weight loss (but I made several weight and rep PR's-so I didn't get too upset). I adjusted my diet, and started to see progress. Abs truly are made in the kitchen.
Oh yeah, you don't really need fat burners - just a good diet and workout plan. Multivitamin, whey, EFA's is all you really "maybe need".
