You may have lost fat so quickly that your fat cells are filling with water making your weight stay the same. What kind of deficit are we talking?
Love your food or risk failure. No quick fixes, this is a lifestyle change. No extremes are needed just consistency.

Really weird. You are not eating alot more than me and I'm exercing 7 days a week for more than an hour and I'm not including my brisk walks here and I'm losing weight just fine: 2 pounds a week, somethimes 3 pounds. Since you are heavier than me (not and insult) maybe your body just went into the starvation mode because you need more energy to function. I suggest that you start eating 1600-1800 calories per day and after a week your body should adjust and realise that it should start burning fat since it will be getting enough energy. If that doesn't work try the zig-zag diet- eating different amount od calories every day, you can find the zig-zag calculator on google. That should speed up your metabolism Smile

Your carbohydrate intake is quite high. I suggest you lower it and raise your fat and protein to equal levels. Doing that much exercise with such a low protein intake can cause you to lose muscle tone.

If you are reporting everything correctly as per your diet and exercise calendar then you should be losing weight. Is it possible that you are under reporting your food intake and/or overestimating your exercise intensity?

Barring that, the only other thing I can surmise is perhaps you are over training. You could try scaling back a bit on the exercise and see where that takes you. Or try eating a bit more protein to support your muscle building efforts. It is sometimes easier to think there is something wrong with our body when it's really just simple mechanics and math that we are miscalculating.

Outside of that, you could consult with a doctor to rule out any medical issues.

But hang in there and keep tweaking and trying different things. It's usually the simplest explanation, something we've overlooked, that solves the puzzle.

IT NEVER GETS EASIER - YOU JUST GET BETTER.
