plateau!  
Hello all -
I do not think I've ever posted on this page but its on my friends page and I read it reguarly. It took me over a year to loose 65lbs and I'm very pleased (no alcohol, sweets/sugar, and exercizing daily). I'm less now than I was in high school (although in HS I was overweight...I still have atleast 70lbs more to go).
For the last 3months I have been loosing and gaining the same 5lbs over and over. I know I've hit a plateau and have read/researched on how to get past it, but nothing is working! I've tried eating less carbs, changing up exercise, etc etc. Any other pointers?

I've never been stuck on a plateau for that long without being able to get started losing again by doing the things you mentioned. Do you keep a food/activity diary? If I were you, I'd start there. If you keep a food diary for about a month and look at that in relation to your weight fluctuations you may see a pattern that is causing you to gain that 5 lbs back. If you don't get any insight from that, I'd spend the money to go see a good nutritionist or registered dietitian and bring the food diary along. Perhaps s/he will be able to see something you aren't seeing and make a recommendation that will help you.
