Well I've got over the joyous occasion of getting to my goal weight, and as I have mentioned before I still have (the podge) round the belly.

I haven't really been keeping logs on fat secret since I got to my goal.

I am not losing any more weight despite doing what I've always been doing. So my next goal is to lose another 7 LBS or half a stone so. for any of you that may have reached this I'm sure you will understand my frustration. don't worry help is at hand.. I found two sites that explains why this has happened and explained it in a way I could understand.
so have a look and hopefully it will help you as well.

As I love eating what I'm eating and the amount of what I'm eating I intend to up the exercise regime to see what happens.

Mistr - Congratulations on your weight loss - that is fantastic! And I know the frustration because my husband has the same thing - he lost 40 pounds and is lean and mean - all except for that little pot belly! If you figure it out please let me know.
Eat like your life depends on it.

Mistri38 - Congratulations on meeting your goal! Smile

If you are already there, but want to nudge off a little more, then I would definitely suggest that you record your calorie intake.

Many times we tend to start sliding a little bit on portion sizes, etc., when we just "wing it", even if we believe that we are cautious.

This is where I'd start if I were you.

The other option is that you simply aren't eating enough. I developed a little solution to that. Check it out via my biopage. Maybe this will help?

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. 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, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Are you drinking enough water? How is your salt consumption? When I crave sweets I drink a glass of water and if still craving I eat a pickle. Usually does the trick. If not I eat a few pieces of fruit.
