Sounds like you're doing everything right. Looking at your ticker, unless you're very short, you can't be very overweight. Could be your body is trying so say it likes itself as it is.
I second the tracking idea. It's possible to impede weigh loss by eating too little or too much. Why don't you log your food and make it public. Or at least tell us what your daily calorie intake is.

Are you using the Nutrition Tracker? Even though it's all healthy stuff, you may be eating more than you think.

Hang in there. Losing 1-2 pounds a week is a good target and that won't happen every week. The closer you get to your goal weight, the more focused you need to be. Sometimes making changes can take up to 3 months to show.
Are you doing any strength training? Building muscle burns more calories than cardio along, so you should start ST 2-3 times a week. If you're new to it, check out some of Coach Nicole's videos on the Healthy Lifestyle tab.
Vary your cardio. Your body will adapt to your program and you need to mix it to keep the progress going.

Thanks! My mom warned me that at 25 your metabolism just haults. I, of course, waited to lose this baby fat when I hit 25 LOL.

Wow!!! 5 lbs in two weeks. Looks like your plan is really working well!!! Be patient and keep up the lifestyle you have adopted. Most of us would die to lose 5 lbs in two weeks. I lost 60 lbs. before knowing about Sparkpeople and it took 3 years!!!!! But it has been off for 6 years now. Don't rush. This is a lifetime process. Trust an old person!!!

I'm stuck.... I have lost about 5 pounds in 2 weeks and I can't seem to slide off that 5 pounds. My goal is 20-25. We eat very well... very healthy. No processed foods, no freezer meals or anything. I cook every meal we eat, and all of our snacks are fruits, veggies and I'm particularly obsessed with homemade hummus and veggies.
I work out 3-5 days a week for 30-45 minutes each session. What am I doing wrong? :(
