I would say that you also need to approach your plan with patience. It takes a while for the body to change shape.
Usually, the weight drops first, then you build tone and definition depending on the exercises of choice.
Maybe, it sounds like you've hit a plateau. What exactly are you doing now? What's your exercise plan and what is your diet plan right now?
I'm asking because by answering these questions, we might be able to provide insight that can help you break through that barrier.
