I know just how frustruating it can be to lose weight, especially when you think you are doing everything right. All points mentioned above are great, here are some extra tips which may help.
1. Food diary - even if it for just 1 week. Sometimes it is easy to say we eat right but its not until we write it down on paper that we realise just how much we are actually eating and what. After you have written up your food intake for the week - try see a nutritionist or dietician for further guidance. One thing I get my clients to do, is to also add the time they consume the food, where they were when they ate it (e.g. at the park, home, cafe) and how they felt when they ate it (lethargic, energised, happy etc…) These will all give indications as to the psychology behind food and nutritional habits.
2. Great job with the exercise - keep it up! Just one thing to ask yourself, do you vary your routine? It is possible when you become stuck in a rut, doing the same cardio or same strength training can leave you with the same results. Try venture out of your comfort zone a little and try intveral training, boxing, rowing, stairs etc… and with strength there are 100 and 1 ways to vary that. Also give yourself some rest - you may be doing too much exercise and burning yourself out without even knowing.
I hope that helps,
