    Hi Les,
    I just saw your message board post about slow weight loss, thought I'd copy my response here.

    Reason is usually in diet, not in exercise - and your 45 minutes per day should be enough.

    How do you measure your food to make sure it is within 1800 calories?
    Kitchen scale, measuring cups or eyeballing?
    Inaccurate measuring may add 1-200 calories per day, and that's enough to slow down weight loss.

    Another thing may be the quality of food. How much processed food (sugar and flour) do you eat? They make make blood sugar levels rise rapidly, high BS means high insulin, and high insulin may lead to insulin resistance and leptin resistance... which makes it difficult to lose weight and follow a diet and an exercise routine. If this is the case, replacing sugar and flour with whole fruit, vegetable and whole grains can help, even if you keep eating the same amount of calories.

    Congrats to your weigh loss success, even if it is not as much as you expected!
