I'm currently 139lbs, I weight myself everyday, I usually stay the same or have a tiny drop in my weight but its the little drops that keep me motivated, I've got 13lbs to go until goal weight but I just can't seem to loose any more, yesterday I was 138lbs but on days I eat more than about 1000 calories my weight seems to keep going back up to 139, ill drop a pound maybe 2 but it will always return to 139 after a day of eating over 1000, any ideas on how to get out of this rut?!

I just looked at your stats, and the only thing I can recommend is to add some exercise to your daily routine. I don't see any exercise listed on your page. Even if it is just moderate walking for 30 minutes say 4 times a week should help get your body to get past your plateau, especially since you are eating a relatively low calorie intake.

I just checked your exercise log for the past week and only noticed that you exercised 1 day. Did I look it up wrong? If that is the case, I would definitely throw something in there. Although food is probably the most important aspect of losing weight, exercise is as well. Good luck!!!

I am pretty close to your weight, i actually was stuck at 140 for pretty close to 6 months. Recently i've had success with cutting out refined carbs and sugars.

I would also reccomend eating more calories, especially if you work out. I work out 4 times a week and eat 1300-1400 calories a day, never less than 1200.

I seem to be stuck at 139, too. But last year I was stuck at 149! I changed my eating and my exercise last July and it shocked my body into losing the 10 pounds. Good luck!

Just seen the clip thanks. Know I'm being petty but the ends of her sleeves in food preparation was really distracting. Apart from that is that it looks too good to be true. But thinking about ...

Contrary to popular belief the way to lose weight is not by Starving yourself or eliminating
Awesome!! I think it's a matter of each finding their own balance and incorporating that into their lives, not just to lose the weight but to stay healthy and maintain after. Also getting fit phys ...
