I have been trying to lose weight for over a month now. I lost 5 pounds then just stopped. I have cut my food intake in half and have been drinking lots of water. I feel like there is something in my body holding me back. I have had my thyroid checked and it is normal. Is there anything else that could be causing me not to lose weight?View Thread
Thanks...Im eating at least 1400 calories if not more...I haven't started to exercise yet...I was eating ALOT of food...snacking all day and eating big meals...I have cut out snacking and my meals are smaller. My stomach has "shrunk" because even if I try to over eat i feel sick. Im just very frustrated that im not losing anything anymore. Five pounds is a great feat but when you need to lose like 65 its minimal. I am 5' 4.5" and weigh 214...I would like to weigh about 150 I was very comfortable there years ago. I just wandered if there was anything medical that could be hindering my weight loss?View Thread
