Are you still b/feeding? I don't lose weight until I've finished.

The best thing is to do some cardio-vascular exercise. You really need to get your heart pumping. 2 or 3 30-minute sessions a week, proper running is good (follow a build-up plan if you're not that fit at the moment). Swimming is also good and leaves you feeling all stretched out afterwards. Or join an aerobics class or similar.

And try and drink LOTS of water, aim for 2 litres a day.

Good luck!

Go get the Nell Mcandrew DVD and do it couple of times a week. Total Killer but it really works. If you burn more calories than you eat you will lose weight. When my DD was 10 months she thought it as hilarious when I exercised in front off her.

Go to your doctor and discuss it with him/her & ask for blood tests.

I have just being diagnosed with thyroid problems after the same thing - healthy eating, training for 1/2 marathon yet no weight loss.

There may be an underlying medical cause for your stubborn weight.
