Dear Amanda
Firstly congratulations are in order for your stunning weight loss of 19 kg - you are a bright ****star****. This problem of getting stuck on a plateau is most irritating. I can only suggest that you stick to the diet and exercise and try taking a chromium supplement (200 microgram a day, not more or less as this is the optimum dose) to improve your carbohydrate metabolism which in turn should result in the loss of those last 5 kg.
Keep up the good work.
