This is very normal as you may have reached a plateau. Initially, we have a tendency to lose more weight at the beginning because we move more than we have done before and we are more aware of what we are putting in our mouths. Once we hit a plateau, we need to modify things around a bit, like adding more repetitions, or cutting a little more on food, etc. Please look through the following links and see if you get more information on how to overcome this plateau.

Don't get discouraged because you can do this! Do you know the expression: "Move one stone at a time to build a great big wall", well weight loss is a bit like that -- one day at a time, one pound at a time.
P.S. When I feel I am losing some motivation I read motivational stories to keep motivated. It seems to work for me.
