Seems to me that you’re losing weight at the appropriate pace.

If you want to lose weight, without doing much or no exercise, You might want to watch what you eat. A lot of people have this wrong notion that exercises do the major work in weight loss. Watch what you eat.

I'm gonna have to agree. I don't see the problem, unless your weight tracker is just taking you to a way-point, but if it's your final goal weight, you only have twelve pounds to go and the last few pounds are always the slowest to come off. One pound a month and you're there in a year doing just what you're doing now. Find time for a vigorous fifteen minute walk in addition and you'll be there in less. Are we missing something?

I don't see what the problem is, as you ARE losing.
Seems like you are doing things right!

I am a single, working parent and I barely have time to take care of everything and pan and prep healthy meals. I have no help, no family (parents both deceased). I don't have time or energy to exercise. I lost weight before just through diet and walking every day (weight watchers). Unfortunately, I gained it back and I'm trying to get back down so I can wear my clothes. The problem for me is that my daily calorie expenditure is so low and I'm barely losing, like 2 pounds a month, this month only 1 pound. I can't eat less than I already do and I can't exercise like I did when I was younger. I don't know what to do and I don't want to give in to my hunger and into being frumpy.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
