First of all... have you been drinking lots of water? If not, make sure you do. You cant dispose of weight without drinking water because it needs to have a way to escape. Also, there must be some hidden sugars. Check your dressings, your drinks, etc... Maybe also some hidden carbohydrates? Also, check the portion of your ricotta desert. I would try not to have the sweet stuff every day. Try to brainwash yourself into not "needing" something sweet every day. Also, check your sodium. Are you drinking a lot of diet soda?? Soda is loaded with sodium. You may be retaining water.
