Dear Nickey
When your weight is close to normal (and you have Weighless supporting this view), then weight loss slows down and can stop when you have received your normal weight. Don't force your body to lose more weight as this could lead to eating disorders. The most sensible method to prompt the body to shed some additional weight is to start doing regular, aerobic exercise. Skip, jog or run for 30 min a day and you will burn up some more fat.
Take care with those slimming pills, that you don't get addicted to them.
