Weigth Loss Resistance: Check these ideas...

 You may want to search online for "weight loss resistance" or "scale not budging" and see what you may need to do specifically for your body-type and lifestyle. Everyone is different for sure.

Other things to consider:

Make sure you get 7-9 hours of sleep!

When you wake up, Drink about 12-16 oz of water before anything else. After a good, uninterrupted sleep, your body will crave it and thank you!

Lastly, something to try... Stop snacking! 3 meals, that's it! when we snack we re-raise our blood sugar to digest food so then our body doesn't have time to use the fat in us as fuel - based on some things read recently, so try it out and do great with the sleep and water intake!
