    Hi there

    I hope this works for you after all the hard work youve been putting in!

    You look like your eating all the right stuff, the body can be a complete mystery eh!

    are you able to get much excercise at all? I just started at the gym recently and i think its really helping me.


    good luck!

    I totally agree with what Missp and Kayos have said, get in as much exercise as you can and have a good look at what your eating, you may literally not be eating enough .. its well known that you do have to eat to lose weight .. your body may be in 'starvation' mode and holding on to as much fat and calories as it can.

    Good luck .. were behind you all the way smile

    Sorry to hear you've gained sad

    If you can't exercise much thats probably the reason why your not losing weight and even gaining, you really do need to burn more calories than you eat

    by exercise I don't mean going out jogging, just general day to day things vigorously tidying the house, running up the stairs, all counts as exercise

    4 pints of beer isnt a rule breaker as such everyone deserves a treat .. but look at them this way, thats like 4 pork chops or 3 mars bars, I know I couldn't eat 3 mars bars and expect to lose weight :roll:

    Maybe you could keep a food diary and see just what you are eating and where you can adjust things to help you

    good luck!
