The best thing you can do, in my opinion, is wait. 1.5 months is not that long and given you lost 15 pounds in 3 weeks, this means you have stalled for about 3 weeks now. I would say 15 pounds gone after 1.5 months is a very good result. Paleo is... (more)

Your success will be 3 months when you're still losing weight and they've gained theirs back. But you probabl shouldn't listen to me, I think competitions have too high a possibility of participants abusing themselves over it.
