I have not budged from between 56-58kgs in over a month. I am still continue-ing my healthy eating plans, stopped most of my binge eating "escapades" but the scale is refusing to hit 55 even. How do I kickstart my weightloss again?

If the calorie intake you have registered in your food diary is correct, then you're clearly not eating enough.
You could benefit from my Indulgence Day Diet. I have a link to it on my biopage. It fixed my plateau.
Try it out. It's free - I'm not selling anything. Smile

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

I hear it's really cool to eat 400 calories a day. You will definitely keep all of the weight you lost off all the way through your 30s.

Side Note: You misspelled consume-ing in your profile.

I agree, you should be eating about 1200 calories a day, any less is not enough to maintain a healthy life style. Also try upping your water, that often is the culprit as we need far more than we realize. Some say you should be drinking 1/2 your body weight in oz per day, at the very very least it should be over the norm of 64 oz.

I agree with Kingkeld, I do an indulgence day about once a week. Mixing up you calories really keeps your body guessing. If you consume the same calories day in and day out your body learns to adjust to that.
this damn tracker below hasn't been right in months! My current weight is 137!

Thanks guys! I took all your advice and I have been at 55 for the past week or so. Now to maintain this and to lose 5 more kgs.

And thanks kingkeld - I love your Indulgence day diet, and I also like your eat within the 8 hour frame idea. It works for me.

I have no idea why you'd want to be at 50 kgs, though. How tall are you? There is a lower limit to healthy weight, you know...
