Losing weight the "right way" is crucial.  Or it will just come back!  Calories are the "old school" focus for losing weight.  That was the science in the 70's and 80's, however, That is no longer the whole story sceintifically .  There are so many other factors that have to be considered.

Cutting your calories and increasing your exercise at this point is NOT your answer.  

 Weight loss resistance can have so many underlying factors, such as Thyroid, Blood Sugar Metabolism, Detoxification abiity, hormones, toxicity, GI imbalance, stress, sleep imblances....and more.
