so close yet so far!

I have started dieting and exercising since january, since then i've lost 55 pounds, and a drop of bmi from 31 to 23. I've always lost 1 to 2 pounds a week if not more, however for the past 2 weeks i've only lost 1 pound. I feel so frustrated.

I don't know if i've set an unrealistic target, but a bmi 22 seems to be doable for a guy who is 6 feet tall. The main reason i want to reach bmi of 22 is because that is what i used to be few years ago. I wonder maybe i've gained muscles? or maybe my bones have grown after 4 years? I am still doing the same thing as i've been doing the past 5 months, which is exercising 2 hours minimum for at least 5 times a week and eating proper food. I wonder if anyone else have faced similiar troubles. The dream just seem so close , yet so far away :(

Hi! Congratulations on your losses to so far - you're doing great and obviously very motivated. Now you are within the normal weight range for your height you're not going to see big losses week in week out, and 1lb a week is actually a great loss. You may have been building muscle but that's a good thing as muscle burns more calories than fat, not just when you are exercising but during normal daily activity. But my advice would be to mix things up a bit, different foods and menus, and changes to your training regime after all an athlete training for the olympics doesn't start a regime and carry on doing the same thing week in week out. I don't mean that in a patronising way, just that you need to keep challenging your body in new ways.
