Another idea. If you are comfortable with it. Continue to eat at deficit and quit working out for a month. Take an exercise break. I'm in the same boat. I lost down to 190, from 270, gained 10, got pregnant with my 2nd baby. Had her in Oct, was at 230. Lost the first 30 no problem. Now I am stuck. Bouncing between 197-199. I ran 22 miles last month, nada on the weightloss. When I started back in Jan, I couldn't workout because I hurt my knee, and that month I had the best losses.

I have an extraordinarily difficult time believing you have eating 1300 calories a day for six months and not lost a single pound. Caloires are getting into your diet somehow.

If indeed, this is correct, than the answer is simple and obvious. You maintain at a very low number and based on the fact that you previously lost weight where you're now maintaining you need to go see a doctor and get a referral to a good endo Expect him to be dubious. I'd take your food log.

Goodluck

I'm just going to throw this out there since you haven't slept in a year and that could be part of your problem: Dr. Ferber's "Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems." Yes, I know, unsolicited parenting advice but it saved my sanity (I have a 2.5 year old).

Also, from someone who has hypothyroidism, get your levels checked (all of them, not just TSH).

I am having the exact same problem. I know I am not getting extra calories because I am using diet plan food that is measured and accurate. And lets just say... it is lower than your calories. I suspect that it has to do with the exercise. I suspect exercise adds like 3-6 lbs of faux weight and, when you are at such a small weight loss point... it appears like you aren't losing but you actually are. I am not sure if it is water or of it is muscle but I suspect that is the issue.

That doesn't really make sense. Even if exercise adds X lbs of water or muscle weight or whatever, your net weight should still decrease if you're shedding fat (because the value of X has an upper limit).

It may but it seems that you are staying still for quite a while. If you are only losing 2 lbs per month... you could appear to be stuck for two months or more.

You're right but the OP is at the six month mark.

How old is your little girl? She is adorable. I have a 19 month old girl and I'm sad to admit that I previously also lost about 100lb, and have put 85 back on since becoming pregnant and haven't lost it yet. I don't know how to help you, but I'm in the same boat. I'm going to be making drastic changes to my diet in the span of the next couple of weeks, and hoping I can get my husband on board to help me.

Been busy recently, just checking in!

I track and log my calories daily, and have daily since 2007. Previously I maintained on the same workout schedule at 1,800 calories a day. Can being pregnant/having a baby so dramatically change my body and hormones and everything that I now maintain a higher weight at 500 fewer calories per day?

My little girl is just over a year old now. I'm trying hard to eat fewer "convenience foods" and get more good, real food in, but it's hard when you've got 10 minutes to eat during a normal workday. I'll just keep on working out and watching and counting, and hopefully when life settles down a bit this summer I will see a change.
