nah keep up the good work. four lbs is nothing to be sad doing 2lbs a week and im not feeling like im killing myself. when i hit a plateau i had to switch things up a bit. for example i usually work out at night, so i started working out at lunch. I even flipped my meals around and had my morning cereal at night instead. I did it only for a week but my body got confused and the next week i lost 3lbs. Don't give up things u will just make u quit

Sometimes putting too much stress on yourself can have the opposite effect of what you want. Are you clothes more loose? Have you been measuring yourself? Are you eating enough for all that you have been working out? It's sounds weird but not eating enough can make you not lose. Working out a lot can have that effect too. Your body may be losing fat, but you are not seeing it on the scale yet. You want to lose weight (not just to look good), but to help you live a long, healthy life. So all the things you are doing for yourself are great and you should not give up. You might also want to try to relax one night, have a slice of pizza and a glass of wine. So many people I know have done that after being incredibly strict and then dropped weight. Just keep plugging along and make changes with what you are doing until you find what works. Vary your diet and how many calories you eat each day. Eat 5 or 6 small meals a day instead of 3. Good luck!

Don't be discouraged. You're body is going to work against you the whole time. Keep doing what you're doing, and the weight WILL come off. Sometimes it just takes awhile to get started. Don't quit though... Whatever you do, don't quit.

Are you measuring your body in inches as well as looking at the scale? I have lost inches rather than weight in my journey so far and the lost inches are the only things keeping me from just giving up myself. You might want to try that with all the exercise you are doing, you might be amazed by the results. The scale is quite often not our friend.
