Maybe you lost more. Often the short term fluctuations come down to food and water in your gut than actual fat burned. Perhaps you burned more fat but have food in your system.

One big piece of advice. I'm happy with a trend going the direction I want it to. Rushing and looking for quick results can mess with the mind and result in quitting and rebounding. A lifestyle with healthy habits is much better than a short term diet that works for a bit but doesn't last. A pound a week is fast in my eyes. Good luck.

Thanks for the advice. Am under a great deal of pressure at the moment and have been in tears but really want the weight to go.

Keep working it. Sometimes it just goes like that. The body pauses

It is normal to have different weight loss with different bodies. Most important is not to give up and keep on high motivation and spirit.

You will get there, Good luck

Ten pounds in five weeks is 2lbs a week. Nothing wrong with that.

You have to remember that you didn't gain your weight overnight. It will take just as long to get it off as it took to acquire it. You've got this! Just weight every week or every other week if you can wait. Then forget about the scale and focus on your eating and exercising.

Plateau no more
I think the body does that a lot. Great that you hung in there and was patient. Some people go crazy and do weird things or just give up. But believing in your diet is the main thing

what are the best calorie foods you personally find?
Exercising would be best for muscle mass combined with eating protein rich food. What every you like to eat, I suppose
