Our expert says:
Very difficult question. It's nearly impossible to guess at the reason you're suddenly struggling now. It may be that you trained a little too hard too soon. I don't know how quickly you progressed to running and when you say that you did, I'm not 100% sure how far you did it to begin with. Might just be that you've gone too fast, and you need to back down and walk again before you run, literally and figuratively.
You might want to try to follow a structured programme - there are some walking-running programmes on the Fitness page of the Health24 site, on the left hand side where there is a link for "Programmes". That may be what you need.
You'll certainly benefit from exercise, but don't forget diet. People often fail to lose weight during exercise specifcally because they eat more and then put back more energy than they burn. That may in fact explain why you get stuck at your current weight, and you need to consider your diet as a result.
Other than that, you really should focus on fitness,and not the scale. That's why the programme will be helpful, if you stick with it.
