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.

Daily Calorie Intake
At 306 lbs, 3700 calories would still put you in a deficit. You can definitely be more aggressive though. Try 3k and see how you feel and lower them slowly over time. I'm averaging over 3k and ...

sodium and calories
The calories and sodium are equally important. No one needs to be eating 4000 mg of sodium in a day then dousing it with tons of water. Your poor kidneys don't like this; you are making your kidneys ...

Learning the site.....
Yes...when you complete a weigh in entry, the site calculates and tells you how long it will take to reach your goal weight using your current calculated weight loss rate. Because your weight loss rate ...
