I have been struggling since July, trying to lose the same 3-4 pounds. Up and down until I feel sick before I weigh on monday nights. I changed the amount of protein I have been eating from 3 ounces a day, to 6 ounces a day. I lost 2 pounds this week! 2 pounds doesn't seem like much...but when you compare it to butter, well that's alot of butter!
