From the Health Library of SterlingMedicalAdvice.com: "Why Is It So Hard to Lose This 'Last' 5-10 Pounds?"
It may be that your body has reached its ‘desired’ weight – its effective, genetic set point. Reaching this level is relatively less painful than getting past it, but your body’s idea of an ‘effective’ weight won’t necessarily correspond to your personally desired level of leanness. Women in particular tend to achieve healthy homeostasis at higher body fat levels. Breaking through plateaus can be hard enough, but plateaus ordained by the body can seem to be impossible. It’s probably going to take some serious tinkering with carbs, calories, activity levels, sleep and stress. If everything else is on point and accounted for, you may be looking at healthy homeostasis (a biological balance). Then the question becomes “Do you want to mess with a good thing”. If so, stay the course; just don’t expect results as rapidly.
