Hi Jeremy

It's tough at the end, those last kilos are tougher to lose than all the others put together!

It often takes a few diet changes, because you reach a point where your diet is matched with your training,so you must change something.

So I'd consider seeing a dietician, if you havne't already done so - these last kg's are subtle and tricky.

In terms of exercise, the key is often the intensity of training. Rather than doing more, it's often better to train a little harder. Not over the top hard, but just to do some harder training, where you increase the speed of a run for say 5 minutes at a time, and feel a greater "burn".

You can also add training days a week. If your'e training 3 days, do 4, or 5, and that often makes quite a nice difference as well.

I'd hold on the weights for now, until you've done all those things, and then look at weights.

Good luck
