Some things to think about. Are you tracking all your food honestly? Bites, licks and tastes add up. People who don't tend to eat 30% more than they think they do. Are you getting enough lean dairy, lean protein, fruits and veggies. Protein and high fiber foods keep us satiated longer and help us lose fat better than any other food groups. Are you drinking water? Water flushes out sodium and keeps the body functioning properly. Are you eating too many processed foods. They contain tons of sodium. You get more bang for your buck with whole foods. Are you taking in the right amount of calories? Some times you need to play around with them to see what helps you lose. Are you exercising? You don't need to exercise to lose, but it sure does help. Activity keeps the heart healthy, helps us get lean and strong, and burns calories. The more muscle your body has the more calories it burns at rest, the easier losing weight and maintaining goal weight will be. Also notice how your clothes are fitting. Sometimes we lose fat and the scale doesn't move. If you new to exercise, google "why the scale lies" for insight in to water weight gain. Muscles can retain water to help them heal. This can show as a temporary gain on the scale, no loss or smaller than usual loss.
