Here's a good one for all - I am perimenopausal and have been dieting for over a year. I lost around 30 pounds, yeah! Now I've hit a plateau. I can't seem to lose anymore no matter what I do and I've gained 5 back from my lowest weight. I am 5'2", weigh 148 and would like to get down to 120. I do stationary bike for 45 minutes a day - 500 calories burned. I have around 300 calories for breakfast, 400 for lunch and supper and 2 100 calorie snacks on some days. HELP!!!

the last 20 lbs are the hardest

Change up your routine, your body adapts to exercise and becomes more efficient at it.

Cycling is also NOT weight bearing, Try my box/squat& lunge routine see the scientific and rational thread... that will shake it up a bit

Vary your eating have high and low calorie days not the same amount
every day

Do some resistance exercise

Judge yourself on how you look, feel and how your clothes fit
you not just the scale

Thank you Spacey! Actually I do feel great and my clothes are fine and I look rather slim. I know most of it is psychological but nevertheless... I also do a little yoga and resistance band for upper body each day for toning. I will try your switch - ups though!

I don' know if you are doing this, but it helps to log all your food here, so you can see exactly where you are at, and if you need to up or lower anything.

I agree on the changing it up. Doing the same excercise over and over, your body gets used to that activity. Weights are great, the more muscle, the higher calories you burn. A couple of inexpensive dumbells and you can do some simple moves like press-ups, push rows, power cleans and adding squats and lunges are great too.

Also, our hormones love fat (the body needs fats for rebuilding cells and hormone production) so be sure you are getting plenty of omega 3 and less of omega 6/polyunsaturated fats.
