Stay proactive. ...Read more

As for the exercise, make it varied so your body doesn't become accustomed to it. Best of luck. ...Read more

However, keep in mind its not all about lbs. Check your body fat% and see if that changes too. Getting a trainer to help you exorcise better also may help improve results. Keep at it! ...Read more
