I was stuck at the same weight for 4 months while remaining pretty consistent with my plan. I finally consulted a nutritionist at my fitness center. She measured my metabolism and gave me a plan to lose weight fast or faster. I chose fast and have begun to shed pounds again. Her diagnosis: fewer fat calories as a percentage of daily calories, and a total reduction of 100 calories/day overall.
I have also consulted a personal fitness trainer from time to time to tweak my exercise routine - to isolate certain muscle groups, for instance. There are great professionals out there to help us. Use them to get past that plateau!

Now that I have regularly been using my elliptical, I've noticed my numbers are looking good. In fact, I've had to cut down on my medications to avoid them from dropping too low. Wow! So my advice is to get out there and sweat your butt off!
Only is you are healthy enough to and consulted your Dr :)
I have been able to stay within my daily calorie limit due to the help of Sensa which is an appetite suppressant that you sprinkle on your food like a seasoning right before you eat it. I am able to eat significantly less that before. Everyone is different but when I consulted my physician he said this was safe for me.
Again, make sure to consult your physician before you use any weight loss product.
