    No idea Kes I'm afraid

    I know you're watching your eating and doing the exercise.

    Hmm maybe try changing the exercising? perhaps your body has adapted to what you are doing?

    Not sure I can help much either except to offer support! Maybe stir things up a bit? Different foods/ different exercise? Or back to basics with calorie counting and such? Good luck anyway,

    I usually find a couple of days of low cals... 800 ish per day then a high day 2000 cals usually helps as my body then wonders what on earth is going on!

    Hi Kes

    I'm still a Xenical newbie....but back in my WW days I did used to plateaux occasionally, and it can be mighty frustrating, not to mention de-motivating :(

    My old WW leader used to advise making a change to one aspect....it doesn't have to be a permanent change and it doesn't necessarily have to be drastic...just enough to trigger your body back into working FOR you rather than AGAINST you....either alter your exercise plan, or do something short-term but drastic to your food intake. Although certainly not recommended long-term, sometimes over-doing the food for a few days each week can tickle things along again (Google WW and the Wendy Plan - the idea is to massively go over your points on one day a week, then go well under a couple of days a week, just to wake your metabolism up)

    My leader also always seemed to repeat the same saying, regularly - "if you do the same you'll stay the same"
    So sometimes its good to break the routine and shake it up for a bit.

    I hope some of that makes sense...and if you try it, that it works well for you.

    Best of luck

    Don`t really have anything to add to what has already been said, Sorry x

    I also would change your diet or exercise just to give your body a kick start.

    Good Luck

    Xx

    thank you for all your advice.
    ive decided to change what diet im on...
    ive gone from Slim fast to Slimming world. so here is hoping that i will be able to get going again. ive paid for 5 more weeks, so if it doesnt work then ill try going back to slim fast and see if eating for 5 weeks kick started things and i start losing again from the shakes.

    ive also upped my intensity of my workouts.. so heres hoping..
    wish me luck!
