I appreciate the advice and will certainly try that! Maybe I really am missing the calorie count and don't even know it! You know how those things can sneak up on you! Thanks. :)

Well, you know weight is just arithmetic, so I suspect that your calorie estimates are wrong, and snacking is adding more than you realize. On the other hand, it sounds like you have a lot to be proud of! Good job!

When I hit a plateau I kick start myself by doing something religiously for a little while- like maybe a week, and it gets my head back in the game. Maybe try counting your calories right down to the milk in your coffee for 5 days and see if that helps?

I have been working very hard for the last 2 years to lose weight and get into shape. I work out about 4 times a week and try to vary my workouts to work different areas of my body. Overall I lost about 60 pounds, but unfortunately have put on about 20 pounds in the last year and a half. I know some of it is an increase in muscle, as my body looks different, but I still see an extra 15 pounds or so that I must get off! An average workout consists of 40 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of weight training. I rarely eat fast food. I typically cook every night and include protein and veggies. I do snack some during the day, but it is typically goldfish, almonds, cheese, peanut butter. I suspect my calorie intake is around 1200-1500 per day. I can't seem to get ANY of these pounds off and can't figure out how to get past this plateau. It is really starting to discourage me and I feel my self-esteem changing. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
