I am in the same place as you. i lost 17lbs since september and i'm starting to really slow down and motivation isnt as strong. i also have the same amount of weight to lose too, I need to lose 100lbs.
i think we could really help each other!
what are your goals atm? what are you doing to lose the weight?
I know what you mean about finding it hard to hit the 20lb mark. i'm the same, i can lose the same 15lbs over and over, but never quite make it to the next level.
I see a dietician, who has me working off the food pyramid. which means i eat 6 portions of fruit and veg, 5 portions of carbs, 3 portions of dairy, 2 portions protein, 2 portions fat. it adds up to 1500 calories, so i have been tracking on myfitnesspal.com.
I dont stick to the portions all the time, cos i find it difficult, but i do stick to 1500 cals a day. its been a slow loss, but its a loss!
I find it hardest to exercise. I do exercise dvds, but its hard to find a time when i'm not interrupted! i am getting alot better at it tho, i found the morning after jakes breakfast is the best time so i do get it done then.
can i ask why you vary your calories so much? what does spark recommend you eat? that may be why you are sticking at the same weight.
