So I am on my last few pounds I want to lose and its hard because well, its the last few pounds.

This is where my friend tells me I am not losing my last few pounds because I eat healthy and in her words, you need to eat more junk food so it can shock your body and make you lose weight. Eating healthy food does not cause weight loss when your body gets used to it.

WTF.

What am I missing here?

Your daily metabolic rate is down because your body weight is at the lowest it has been at. This is why the "last few pounds are the hardest".

I'unno....

I've never heard anything like that, but it's entirely possible that it's true. I do know that those last few pounds are usually the ones that hold on with the mose tenacity.

Step up your activity. The last few are the hardest. Why not just call it good and maintaining your current weight? I'd say you hit your goal. How much did you shed anyway? I'm on my last 9lbs and I've hit a plateau I can't seem to shake. It is getting towards the winter time and my body is in to storing fat mode. Come spring I'll get busy and work up my activity some. Good luck!!!

That is what I thought. So this notion of me having to eat junk food is well, it makes no sense to me. Does it make sense to you because I am often confused.

I love my friend but she has no idea who the PM of Canada is or even who the President of the United States of America is so most of what she says is just odd. Last week she told me deodrant is going to give me cancer. I have my blond moments and all but the stuff she says, odd.

but I have no idea if this is true but it seems bulls*** like to me.

I am going to step it up, that is what I told her and her response was just to eat junk food to shock my body, her words. She is very, well, I love her but she is not one you would watch Jeopardy with you know.

Thanks. I just want back in all my old clothes. Its frustrating as heck. But I do not see how eating junk food is going to make me skinnier.

Keep doing it the right way - eating less (of healthy food) and exercising regularly, and you'll get there.

I am already eating the smallest amount of calories I can in a day and exercising my a** off. I have no trainer anymore as he abandoned me for hockey players.
