Hi shawn, obviously, if you've already lost 70lbs, you are doing something right. Good for you. At plateau, don't eat less, eat a little more 2-3 days a week.
On those days, add in a very short burst of cardio, like this

tabata only takes 4 min and revs your metabolism to help get over the speed bumps of plateaus.
Do this for a couple of weeks and I bet you start looking at lower numbers on the scale again.

Losing weight healthfully isn't going to be easy or fast, but it WILL be worth it

Hi Shawn, If you feel you are in a rut and weight loss has slowed down you may have to change something that you are doing. Maybe add an exercise or drink more water. But don't give up you are doing great!!

shawn i had a client (i am a trainer) who i had told to eat around 1900 to 2000 calories a day. while he was doing this he lost on average about 1 lb a week for about 6 weeks then he dropped to half that weight loss. he decided on his own to drop his calories to 1500. he was shocked when he gained a lb and told me so. his body reacted in a panic when he dropped so many daily calories. i had him go to 1800 to 1900 calories and he immediately dropped another 1 lb the next week. you can eat too little calories.
