Last 5 pounds

I am having trouble staying motivated to lose the last five pounds. Does anyone know of a group/team that addresses this issue? I am new to the website and have noticed a lot of sarcastm and put-downs. So, please, only sincere help please!

Staying motivated is the real issue its not really so much about if its the last pound or two or the last 20. Find a group of people you feel like you can relate to. I join groups read their profiles and read through the logs and if I feel like we are on the same wave length then I stay, this has worked for me. I have found 5 awesome groups that way. Good luck.

Thanks for your comment. You're right. You have to burn the same number of calories to lose a pound wether you want to eventually lose 5 or 20. But I know that I was a lot more motivated when I had to lose 20 lbs as opposed to now. So, I was hooing to get tips from others in the same boat.
