Our expert says:
If your BMI is 22, which is ideal for adult women, then your body will resist additional, unnecessary weightloss. It is probable that when you wore the size 8 clothes, your were bordering on underweight, which is not healthy. I would recommend that you stick to eating a balanced diet to prevent deficiencies, continue with moderate exercise to keep trim and stop stressing your body by forcing it to lose additional weight. If you persist you may harm your metabolism and even develop anorexia, which is not a path you want to follow esp now when you have a 2-year-old child to consider.
