Our expert says:
I can't judge if you are overweight or not because you don't list your height in metres and weight in kg. I suspect that you may have lost sufficient weight for your present weight to be in the normal range which is when the human body resists weight loss. Part of the problem may be the ugly scar - talk to a plastic surgeon about this - they can really do a lot. If you are eating a low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet', 'Weight loss' and 'Slimming Diet' for a copy) and you don't lose weight, then you should have a checkup to see if you don't have an underlying problem like an underactive thyroid, etc. Be creative and try to figure out some kind of exercise even you can like, e.g. swimming, tae bo, karate, walking in the fresh air, anything in fact that will get you going because it will stimulate your metabolism.
