I agree with all of the suggestions and you could also increase your strengths workout or add to it. The more muscles you have, the more fat your body will burn. Give the "bikini workout" a try, I did and it took me off the plateau I was stuck on with phenomenal results.

I think you are doing too much activity for your calorie level, forcing your metabolism to slow down. Try going up to 1500 calories a day; add extra fruits and veg and healthy fats and lean protein.

Thats the thing I have switched it up quite a bit and can only do so much since I shattered my ankle 3 months ago and had surgery. It is healing nicely but still can only do so much bending. I figure i will keep trying for a nother two months if not I guess this is the size Im supposed to be. Thanks for your reply

Switch it up. The longer you do the same thing, the less effective it becomes. Instead of walking and running try intermittant jump rope and resistance like squats and tricep dips, or do a spin class. Just make sure you keep your body guessing. I think that might help.

So I walk and run for 90 minutes a day, do shadow boxing, and strength exercise for 30 min a day 3 times a week. I only eat 1200 calories and still nothing.
It has been 3 weeks of this lol maybe I just shouldnt worry anymore and just stay this size but I made the goal and want to stick with it.
