Have you tried documenting what you eat? That way you'd be able to see what you're eating that's causing the standstill. Regarding exercise. Not knowing if you're at a desk or not, there are various exercises which fit many type jobs and lifestyles. Give it a google.

Good luck.

I lost 96lbs in 2 years and all the exercise I ever did was walk and move every 20 minutes....ate low carb, low sugar, low sodium

Several days of fewer carbohydrates and more protein can help push you off a plateau, as I told a previous poster

Also look at the labels and check sodium and sugar content of the foods you are might be surprised.........skip all breads and pasta for a few days.... eat veggie berries which have the least impact on blood sugar and veggies as they can also hydrate you.

Have 3 ounces of protein at every meal as it stimulates the body to release the fat burning hormone glucagon...I also found that moving every 20 minutes all day long helps break a plateau too.

If pounds aren't coming off salt is sabotaging your effort to lose weight. Try to eat 1,000MG of salt or less per day and see the pounds start coming off once again. Cumin revs weight loss, so substitute cumin for salt.

Too many hours without eating can cause your blood sugar level to plummet, leaving you ready to grab for anything with sugar.

Potato chips, ice cream sandwiches , subway sandwiches? not very healthy choices. Try to eliminate processed foods and eat healthy nutritional foods, When you eliminate the sugars and salts, the cravings for them lessens.

Also exercise can be anything that gets you moving. Short bursts of movement is great for boosting the metabolism. Do some squats and walk around several times a day and you'll notice a difference.

Build in as much extra movement to your day as you can. Take the stairs instead of an elevator. Get off the bus a stop early etc etc.

You might consider switching to a ketogenic diet for a few months.
