The body usually get really comfortable at a certain weights and just adjust your muscle to fat ratio to maintain that weight.  I’m the same as you. I typically just go up or down a point regardless.  What I would suggest is to do less cardio and really push yourself with some functional training, movement that engages your whole body. Once you think you can’t do any more reps, do 2-3 more.  Also try going anarobic rather than aerobic.  Often when you go anarobic in workouts it will jump start your metabolism and help.

Have you talked to a doctor about this? I’ve heard that people with thyroid conditions can have these kinds weight problems — not gaining/losing, losing too much/not enough.

It might be helpful to talk with a professional about your weight concerns.

Your body is comfortable and that is ok because from your pictures it looks like you are at a perfect weight!

You clearly have a good metabolism being able to eat what you do and maintain your weight. Therefore you may subconsciously eat more when you are exercising because your body wants to maintain the weight. Were you counting calories?

You may only be able to lose weight via a strict calorie counting regimen and you may not be able to get comfortable at a lower weight your body may reset and regain the weight back to its comfort level!

You should get your body fat percentage measured! My weight LOVES to stay the same–but if i’m in good shape, my body fat is a solid 2% loser. If i’m soft and squishy, it’s 2% higher. But the number is the same.

Also totally depends what you’re doing at the gym. Change it up a lot. Do interval training, try new things. Take spinning–which is a huge cardio fat burner. Or a kickboxing class. Or start running.

Focus on the way things fit more than the number or on measurements. It’s possible you may not ever be able to get “down” to 140, but you could likely lose some fat.

I dunno..i gave up on the weight. I get my body fat monitored every month and that helps keep me in check. I have a feeling December is going to kick me upside the head =]
