Have you recalculated your calorie needs since your original weight? As you lose weight, your body needs less energy to function, so you will need to decrease your calories a bit the more weight you lose.

Your body also gets more efficient (burns less) with the same exercise over time, so upping the intensity or switching up your routine really helps!

When you were starting out, you looked for a few things that you could do better, right? Well, you are going to to the same thing again. Take a step back, look at what you are doing and find a few places to make more small changes for the better. Most people need to do this multiple times. Each change gets you part of the way there, and you build upon the changes that you have already made.

-google first. ask questions later.

First off, congrats on your success!

When I started I hit a plateau after losing about 30 lbs and I hadn't been exercising. Starting that got me losing again. The other thing is that if you are tracking your food (and that is highly recommended) as you lose weight, you'll need to reduce the calories you're eating because you need less.

Upping the cardio and adding strength training makes a real difference. the other thing that helped me was focusing more on "real foods" and less on processed foods.

Persistence is more important than perfection.

Don't assume your freedoms are assured.

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.

Congrats for your amazing progress so far!

Are you tracking all of your food in your SparkPeople nutrition tracker? What is your recommended calorie range and how many calories do you typically consume?

Are you exercising?

when it comes to losing weight, ive lost almost 95 pounds and was able to get off several medications including metformin, blood pressure and cholesterol meds.

i originally weighed 350, i now weigh 260 and have been at this weight for 3 or so months now. im unsure of how to handle this or go about losing a bit more weight. i pay attention to carbs and log everything i eat every day except for the rare exception. i am technically a type 2 diabetic but its in remission and will likely stay that way with the good choices i have made and will continue to make.


any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
