Weight loss fail despite calorie reduction - WTF?

I have been carefully counting calories using the MyFitnessPal iPhone app since the beginning of May. I have tried to keep to a net 1200 and have rarely gone over net 1500. I am 5ft 6in tall, early 40s, I started the month weighing 133 pounds, still weigh 133 pounds and would like to get back to 126. I am not forgetting to log anything I eat or drink, including condiments. I am not doing regular exercise yet (this will start on Friday). Does anyone have an explanation for this? [more inside]

Will antibiotics stall my weight loss?

I'm currently on a low carbohydrate weight loss diet, I am in a mild state of ketosis. I have been losing weight at a moderate pace and doing well. I just started taking antibiotics (500 mg of amoxicillin 3 times daily for one week) in preparation for a root canal I'm having next tuesday. Multiple sources on the internet are telling me that taking antibiotics can stall weight loss. Is this true? I really don't understand how this would work. I really hope it's not!

Weight, weight, don't tell me...

Cardio isn't doing it for me. The diet change is working verrry slowly, but I want to lose 10 pounds. Problem is, I can't lift anything heavier than 15 pounds, so is weight training even an option? [more inside]
