Why am I not losing weight?

Hi! This is my first post so please bear with me. I have been dieting for two months now and until a couple of weeks ago I've been losing a pound a week. I have been happy with that although I did want to lose 2 pounds. About a week or two ago I hit a plateau do I started exercising. I now do a 30min video, a 5k walk and 15min of bodyweight training. But I haven't lost anything? I've been eating 1200 calories and I've been doing this workout for 10 days with only one rest day. But I'm not losing anything. I have no idea why. I know scales don't tell the full story but it's really frustrating. Is it possible I'm working out too much? Any advice please?

    Can you give use more information?
    What's your current weight, size and approximate age, goal weight? I assume you're a woman?
    Are you using a foodscale to weigh all your food and do you check database entries?
    And finally, when did you start the new workouts?

    I am in the same boat, but I am not as active as you. Around 1100 calories a day for the last 10 weeks and only 4 lbs lost. Some days I want to give up, blame the app, blame the scale at Publix..

    Hi, I am in the same boat! I am 126lb and 5ft 2 and I defo have some belly fat to lose! Yet I just can’t shift it! I was eating 1200 healthy calories a day and working out every single day with no rest days and this is a mixture of an hours cardio, half hour hiit with weights and a brisk walk in the afternoon and I only lost 3lbs in 4 weeks! I tried to do intermittent fasting and scaled down my calories to between 800-1000 just to try and boost my metabolism and lose some more however, I haven’t lost anything in the last 2 weeks which is frustrating! Not even inches! (I’m on week 6 of exercising now) HELP 😩

    consider you may be under eating. If I eat 1200 or under BEFORE exercise I usually can't lose. eating only 1200 AND doing that much physical work? Setting yourself up for failure
