peachacid:  When I first started working out, it was a couple weeks until I started to lose pounds! I was doing the same as you, working out a lot and watching what I ate. Once I started tracking my calories on my fitness pal, I really started to see a lot of weight drop off. I have since lost 15 pounds.

I read that its really 80% diet and 20% exercising that helps you lose weight. I would start tracking your calories and making sure you aren’t eating too many in a day. MFP has me eating 1470 a day to lose 1.5 pounds a week. I thought I was eating healthy before, but I was up over that so now I have modified my diet to make sure I eat less. 

I would give it a couple more weeks and if you really are having issues, see a nutrionist or go to your doctor to make sure nothing is wrong!

peachacid:  You were not fat before you started your new plan so you cannot be fat now. You have body image problems.

How many calories are you eating per day? What is your current height/weight?

How much of the weights are you doing? And your measurements (i.e. waist, thighs etc) haven’t changed?

peachacid:  Hey so I used to work in a health instruction office and I learned a ton working there! First, not everyone handles their food the same and you may be going about your diet wrong. You may also be approaching your work out wrong. What kind of work out do you do and can you go see a professional nutritionist? Certain fruits, veggies, and meat can slow our weight loss because we are taking in food that isn’t good for our body. Yes, not all “healthy” foods are good for everyone. 

Also, are you drinking milk? If so then I suggest you give it up because most people are allergic to milk even though their bodies tolerant it. You can get milk replacers that have more beneficial amounts of calcium and ect. You will probably see faster results by cutting milk. 

Workouts. Are you doing short workouts that are high intensity rather than long workouts that have points of high intesnsity? Shorter workouts will have faster results and take up less of your day! 

Also, are you sleeping and are you eating enough? Not eating enough food can make you gain weight and lack of sleep throws your body out of whack!

Weight and measure everything. Even healthy foods have calories.

HappySky7:  Yes! 

peachacid:  healthy foods have calories and there are different types of calories! Make sure you are eating full calories and taking in the right amount of calories per day. 

Also, vitamins are HUGE when changing into a healthy lifestyle. Most people aren’t getting enough of what they need.

You may not realize it, but you’re eating a lot of sugar/carbs. Greek yogurt, honey, raspberries, quinoa, potatoes, apples, tomatoes, snap peas, and apricots are high in sugar. Straight cheese and an overdose of nuts aren’t probably great either.

If you want to drop weight, eat protein, vegetables, and some people feel that you can also eat beans as they don’t screw with your glycemic index in the same way as other high carb foods.

You also don’t have a lot of weight to lose. Someone who weighs 400 pounds will lose 10 pounds much more quickly than someone who weighs 136.
