As noted below, more information about your diet would be helpful.
At least your weight is stable and not increasing. Therefore even a modest increase in exercise ought to be able to shake something loose. How much exercise are you doing?

What are you eating? Are you logging your food intake here on spark so we can look at it and help you out? Just being a vegetarian is not something that magically makes you lose weight. There are people who are even vegan who are overweight and cannot lose because they chose to eat only junk food like potato chips, french fries and processed vegan food all day and stay away from the healthy vegan food live vegetables, whole grains, beans and fruits.


If you are a vegetarian who eats a lot of cheese, white bread and simple carbohydrates like white rice and high calorie vegetarian foods you won't lose weight. To lose weight on any diet you need to eat whole grains and healthy foods, in the right proportions. You need to eat lots of vegetables, legumes and fruits, a minimum of fats and a nice amount of whole fruits every day. You have to find recipes that you like and can make and cook at home for most of your meals. Restaurant food is full of salt, fat and hidden calories that inhibits weight loss.

It depends on what your eating (like eating fruit and veggie verses processed foods) and are you exercising.

Why is it after three of being ovo lacto vegetarian, my weight remained the same 210 lbs although my blood chem results are all normal except for triglycerides?
