    I don't see any mention of your activity level. Are you working out? How much? Are your measurements still moving in the right direction?

    I'm down about 55 pounds, and have plateaued a couple of times - it is natural and your body's way of telling you it needs to regroup a little. I've found that number 1 - don't get too stressed about it, number 2 change up some things you do and eat, number 3 if you are working out a lot, stop for at least 4 days to allow for some real recovery and reset.

    I actually remain flat almost every week, because I am working out and my body wants me to eat more. On the weekends and off days, the weight melts off because I am not hungry and therefore don't eat much. Nuts, dairy, and all of those things you know you shouldn't eat do have an impact as well.

    I feel irritate when i have to pass through number of dieting programs. I use just fresh juices in my dieting plan and take the light food in eating routine. I face the problem when i have to attend the parties and functions.

    yeah, ditch the scale.

    not to mention it's summer! why think about it? when i put on some weight or miss a workout i go to the beach with friends and run around in the waves. makes your body and mind feel absolutely great. by prioritizing things like that, adventure, fun, etc, then the weight stuff just happens. maybe because i don't stress as much.

    thats my two cents. good luck! don't stress

A person that weights 160 pounds requires fewer calories to maintain their current weight than a person that weighs 200.

    This is a link to a great calorie calcluator: Free Fat Loss Calorie Calculator See the bolded note that says "Note: When your weight drops by more than 5lbs (2kg) you must recalculate your numbers!" This is a bodybuilding type website, but I think the calculator can work for most anyone trying to get a decent idea where to start.

    I know, I know, a lot of people will say that it's not about calories in and calories out. This approach has worked for me and some others here, that's all.
    I agree with this and Daemonized. You need to consume less calories as before. Start by deleting the bacon and avocado at lunch. At this meal eat more lower calorie foods - salad, tuna or chicken breast. If you want to still eat nuts, chocolate, dairy you need to factor it into your calories for the day. Don't throw away your scale but just weigh less often and take measurements.

    Why don't you start exercises with your dieting plan so that it will help you more in losing weight quickly and you'll never face any problem in any party or function.
