    Are you coming to the end of your weight loss journey? I know in the past that when I am nearing my gaol weight, the pounds become harder to shift.
    Or have you become complacent? Sometimes when we have followed the plan for a long time, we start not measuring and guessing certain foods like cereals and cheese. If we over guesstimate, this all adds up to many more syns of a week.
    Are you varying your foods enough? We do get stuck in a rut. Try looking up some new recipes and also make sure you vary your Healthy Exras too.

    Some things to consider maybe.......?

    You have done very well so far!!! 5lbs loss in the last 5 weeks is still a good loss, thats an average of 1lb per week...not to be sniffed at ;)

    Come back mojo...all is forgiven!! lol

    Sometimes it helps to re read our books that we were given when we joined.
    We forget that there are so many other choices to have because we seem to stick to same few.
    Give the plan a shake up....you know it works!!!!

    I am in exactly the same position as you, I am halfway through and it is a struggle right now. It's just because the body needs to settle and readjust to it's new shape and size but it will start moving again. You just have to keep at it and be patient
