Plus you need to be doing the right kind of exercise. Your body is smart, if you don't change it up it will anticipate the work its doing and well store energy.
    I totally agree with you: you need to do the right type of exercise. And if after 8 months of walking you only lost a gram hat would suggest walking alone was not the right type of exercise for you. As you mentioned your boys gets used to something and stores fat.

    If you stagnate you need to kick things up a notch. Run, do interval training, introduce some weights.

    OP: if what you are doing isn't working can you get a personal trainer to do up a training plan for you to make sure you are doing the right exercise?

    I'm struggling right now aswell. I'm finding that I do much better if I have ready cut up fruit and veg to have as snacks so I leave the chips etc alone! Also every time I get hungry I drink a bottle of water first - makes sure it wasn't just thirst and also keeps my water intake up!
    I do pole dancing and aerial fitness for 2 hrs each week. It's great because I'm having fun so I don't realise I'm exercising. I always find the gym just depresses me lol. Have a think about something you enjoy doing like dancing, boxercise etc and find some classes that incorporate that so it doesn't feel like a chore and you actually look forward to doing it!

    Yeah I'd say the walking wasn't cutting it either.

    I went from doing no exercise to running 5km 4-5 times a week. Within 8 weeks I'd lost 10kg. However within 8 weeks my metabolism adapted to that exercise and despite continuing to follow that exact same exercise plan for the last 4 months, i haven't lost anymore. It's very well documented that there's a weightless plateau.

    You don't mention if you're still breastfeeding but like PP mentioned it can cause some people to hold onto weight. I've just weaned and, after struggling to lose a gram for 10 months, 3kgs have just fallen off in less than a month without trying. I'm sure some of that's been my boobs but most looks like it's come off my stomach. I didn't start to lose weight until I weaned my first either.
