I have been dieting since 2/01/17. I have been eating about 1200 calories a day by cutting out bread and sugar. I have been eating healthy meals and making lots of home made veg soups with nothing added. I don't understand why I am not losing weight. I eat sweets at a weekend but haven't had any takeaways or anything else that is bad for me. I have been trying to exercise more and am just so confused as to why I've only lost about six pounds in two months. I am 53 and work in an office. I am going on holiday in four weeks and need to lose at least another stone.
