Don't give up. Keep doing what is healthy and exercising. I hit mine right after Thanksgiving. So mad I could spit. But I tweeked my diet, added strength training and increase my walking and bike time. Began losing weight again. Have lost 3 lbs. in 2 weeks.

As to doing 1750 calories. Maybe you need to increase them. I did. With all the exercising, etc. I wasn't eating enough. I know, it doesn't make sense, but it's true. I didn't believe it,but do now.

Just wish I had made the adjustments sooner. But didn't gain anything, so that was good.

Keep up the good work.

I hit the plateau wall on 12/22 and stayed there three weeks until I increased my intake - lost 5lbs the first week, 3 the next. Third week I only dropped 1lb so went back to lower intake and have lost 2lbs.

I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

does anyone know of a food tracking system that is designed for kids?
I just caution to be careful with kids - you don't want them to become obsessive with counting calories or dieting, can lead to other issues. Self esteem is important at that age. But there is some ...
