    I have lost 45 lbs so far this year but in the last month & half can't seem to lose anymore.. I'm not gaining but not losing either.
    I feel like I eat pretty healthy.

    Congratulations and well done to have lost all that weight.

    Eating healthy is good, but of course quantity counts enormously, not only quality. The time has probably come to cut some more calories. Now that you weigh less, your body also requires fewer calories.

    Tomato05 has it right. This happened to me. I had a very good diet plan going and losing weight regularly. I was within 7 pounds of where I wanted to be and stopped losing. I cut back on the amount of food I was eating, just as Tomato said, and I lost the last 7 pounds. HOWEVER, I regained that 7 pounds because the extra cut in calories was too little food for me. Portion control is as important as the actual foods you're eating.
