You've been a very good girl, dieting for weeks, but you step on the scale and that number hasn't budged since your last weigh in. What gives? No worries, lovie. There are lots of reasons you're Not Losing Weight, and some of them are pretty easy fixes. So before you swear off dieting for good and slide back into your frumpy too-big sweatpants, let's review. Here are 10 reasons why you're not losing weight.
