Have you checked with your doctor to make sure you don't a medical issue that is preventing you from losing weight - such as hypothyroidism, insulin resistance, PCOS, etc?
I have hypothyroidism/hashimoto's thyroiditis and am finding it nearly impossible to lose weight AND constipation is a major symptom. I, too, am 5' tall and my varies between 143 and 148.
You can try a probiotic and see if that helps. I am taking "Pearls" - purchased at the pharmacy. I also take cranberry pills with a probiotic. Seems to help me - not with the weight loss, but with the constipation issue......
Also, make sure you get plenty of fiber and drink lots of water......
