Help!! I hit a plateau and I'm desperate :(
Hi, I'm 130 pounds, 15 and uncomfortable with my weight. I lost 40 pounds 2 years ago but now I've hit a plateau. I have been exercizing for almost a year now, mixing up my exercize schedule, and doing classes. NOTHING works. People say "just keep working out It'll sooner or later mak your stomach shrink"... nope I've heard people tell me to eat 1200, 1800 and variations. I would like to know how many calories to eat to lose .5 of a pound or a pound or anything, btw: My rmr is 1250, (I got it tested) It's probably so low because I used to only eat 1200 and exercise and it slowed my matabilism...I think. Plus I usually exercize for about 1.5-3 hours depending on how I feel please help me!! :( I'm 5'4 btw

BMR doesn't have to do with how many calories you used to eat; that's the minimum number of calories you need to eat each day, in order for your body to perform properly.  

At 5'4" and 130 lbs, you aren't overweight.  It sounds like you might simply need to do some muscle toning, along with your regular exercise.  You might try yoga; it's great for toning muscles.

At 15, your body is not completely developed and losing too much weight can cause issues later in life.

Omg i thought i was reading my life at the moment lol I am sorry your going thru it same is happening here I am stuck at 174 for like 6-8 months now. I had my surgery in 2011 december. I went from 240 to 158 then for no reason to 174 I even tried the 5 day pouch test which is going back to the basics to shrink your stomach. Didn't work for me some people say it works for them. I know when i was doing the workout out program p90x my body was looking ok and i was 157 i was gaining muscle so i guess thats the key everyone says i still look good but i wear mens pants i went from a size almost 32 to a size 36ish comfortably i can squeeze into 34. But i notice my lower stomach the skin is not tight as it was when working out. So try the whole muscle training thing its tough but give its  try at this point anythings worth trying right. What we have been doing hasn't been working. Good luck I have to wait I just had back surgery a month ago so maybe by summer i will get back to the p90x. You will get there you are young.
