Hi Molly

I know the feeling..... try as I might the weight is just not coming off.  Maybe as you are running every day you are gaining muscle.  

I have started climbing with my husband and he says even a small increase in muscle will have an effect on weight - so you may have lost some fat which is good.

Keep trying - I am sure the weight will drop.  That's what I am telling myself.
