Well, I'm at 130 ( fluctuates ), which is the beginning number of overweight for my height and age. I'm only 5"4 so it piles on pretty fast on a smaller frame. I don't want to let myself slip any further so I'm starting now to control it and get myself down to 115-120. My muscle has deteriorated to a minimum lol I have really just turned to squish. So I plan to tone muscle and lose weight. The one thing that lead me to ask was that most of the time a diet switch will make a world of...

Well my picture is a bit old, more of what I want to get back to. I'm still debating on progress pics and such as for the time being anyway. Its really not a huge difference but definitely enough to want to go back. Walking was what did it for me before. I walked literally everywhere I went in sun and snow . But then I started driving and going to work and it fell apart from there. Especially the night shift job ( five days a week) has made it really difficult.

In my experience, yes. I lost all but 10 lbs but that last ten is not coming off.

That's exactly what I was thinking about, all the times I heard that same thing. " that last ___ amount of weight won't come off".

Don't give up. I'm sure it will happen.

The best way to get over a plateau is variation. Change something, whether its the duration of the workout, the intensity, or the format in general. Also, studies show that you can lose more weight from eating healthy than you can from working out. Be sure you're eating a healthy and balanced diet. Lastly, keep in mind that although the weight might not be coming off on the scale, you could very well be gaining muscle instead. I always recommend taking measurements, not just going by the number on the scale... Good luck and I hope this helps!

The graph (weight in relation to time) of someone losing weight usually looks like hyperbola. That means you are your weight loss rate is getting lower when you lose weight and at some point becomes practically zero.
So yes, people who weight more lose weight faster.
