I am 5'4, and 9st11lbs. I only want to lose 7 lbs, but I just never seem to be able to get these last few lbs off. I eat pretty healthily, do a strenuous bootcamp for 60 mins twice a week and run 5k twice a week but the scales never go lower than 9st 10lbs.

Can anyone suggest anything that might kick start the weightlose, I would be happy lose a lb a week to just get it down.

What carbs do you eat. For me cutting out carbs has worked. I'm 5'2 at weighed 9st9, but have lost 7lb in the last 2 and a half weeks by mainly cutting out bread, potatoes, pasta and the obvious junk food. I have 2 boiled eggs for breakfast every morning, then maybe ham salad for lunch with a yoghurt, then fish or meat for dinner with veg or salad. Good luck, keep trying you will get there.

I know that cutting carbs will make a big difference, but I really have tried it and it makes me so grumpy as I really love them. I don't think that I could do it long term. It gets me into a yo yo thing as I give them up, and cross and grumpy with DH and DC and then reach my goal weight and them go back on them and in a few weeks am back to square one again - 7lbs overweight!

Could you give up sugar?

I know deep down that I really need to reduce my portion sizes, less carbs, less sugar etc…it is just so hard.
