Hi Nicci

What do you mean "wrong"? You've lost 17 kg and reduced body fat by 6%, and I assume you are getting fitter. I think you're doing a brilliant job! I think you're eating too little, which is a concern. It's unhealthy and you won't see much progress in the long term if you don't change that - so you need to see a dietician about that. But other than this, you are going really well.

Have you hit a plateau in weight loss? I gather that is what has happened.

But it sounds like you were on the right path, just need to give it time and it will still come.

Good luck
