I don't know what to do now, it's been a long time since i lost weight. 

I have done everything possible, varying my calorie intake, working out everyday, varying my workout routine

I drink a lot of water every day, but i still cannot lose weight and i don't understand why?

 

If someone can help me, i'd be sooo grateful!

try eating "normal" for a day like eat breakfast lunch and dinner. it helps boost your metabolism and break plateaus.

Are you at a super low weight? Sometimes your body just doesn't want to go any lower

I hit a point when I didn't loose anything for a week it made me so angry I just felt like giving up and had a huge binge (probably close to 5000 calories :S) the day after I'd put on 3 pounds but within the week after that I'd lost 7 pounds I was literally loosing a pound a day eating 300 caloriea a day and this carried on for like 9 days so I don't know exactly why it worked but I think it must have kick started my metabolism or something but obviously its abit of a risk if it doesn't work for you :/

How many calories have you consumed on average, daily? Have you binged? How long has this been going on for?

I have no idea, then... just get around 1200 net calories in one day to see if you can break the plateau. Could just be gaining muscle though.

Try upping your cardio. That always helps boost my weight loss

It cannot be muscle, you don't build any since you don't feed your body enough.  I would say try eating 1200-1500 cal on one day, without burning it all 


A perfect day for perfect pain.

Hiya hun, I also plateau between 140 and 130 - I upped the caffeine and water intake and occasionally confused my body by eating something awful and keeping it down. That caused a small gain but then it dropped off plus more due to the caffeine.

Thankyou! it's good to have reassurance that i will eventually start losing again!
