interesting that you gave no information. 

How far from goal?  How much have you lost?  What are you eating? What is your exercise routine? Height? weight?

How much do you still have to lose?   Big difference between someone starting at 300 pounds and losing down to 230,  and someone starting at 220 pounds and losing down to 150.

Are you tracking what you eat? I notice you said you eat some sugar, for example. That's a big red flag to me not about how much you're eating but about how many calories.

Honest truth: If you're not losing, you're almost certainly eating too many calories. May not be eating too mu*****uantity, but eating the wrong sorts of foods can be an issue as well. It's amazing how easy it is to slip back into bad eating habits. That's why I still track my food even now that I'm at goal.

If you can give us a better idea what you are eating, being truly honest with yourself, we are more likely to be able to help you.

If you are not already doing so, start tracking every morsel that goes into your mouth.  Once you start doing that for a good week or so, you will likely see a trend as to why you may not be losing any longer.  Also, perhaps walking isn't enough exercise at this point.  Perhaps you need to ramp it up or just vary it.  Perhaps an exercise class or some strength training will help.  As you build and tone muscle, your metabolism increases.  If you are only doing cardio, that might be just what you need to kick-start your weight loss.  

Good luck and let us know how it goes.

Another bit of info that might help is knowing how long t's been since you haven't lost any weight.  This might just be a normal re-adjustment.

It really varies from person to person. I think I'm a moderate to moderate-slow loser compared to other folks, but maybe not to someone losing slower than me.

My surgery was on June 18, 2012. So I'm at 4 months, have lost almost 62 pounds (I'm about to drop below 200) and my doctor says that the loss is slowing down but will start another slide between 6-9 months. BUT my size is changing and I'm losing inches so it's just that weird stuff your body does to equilize everything.

Don't worry about the scale - track your food - measure your thighs - stay on target.
