So I'm really on the struggle bus lately. I feel like my diet has been a lot better, and I'm exercising 5 days a week including cardio 3 days a week and strength training twice a week. I'm really watching my calorie intake..... But I'm not making any headway! I don't really look at the scale as much to determine if I'm making progress, I really look more at the way my body looks and how my clothes fit. But I feel like nothing is changing, in fact I feel like things are getting worse! My belly feels fat!! Anyone else dealing with this? any suggestions? Any diets or programs that have worked really well for you? HELP!!

Your post contains a lot of 'I feel like' and 'really watching' your calorie intake doesn't give us much detail either.
Are you weighing your food, checking that you are using the right database entries?
What stats and goals did you enter in MFP and what calorie goal did that give you? Are you following that goal? Are you eating back exercise calories?
Not weighing is fine, though it wouldn't be my choice. But are you measuring yourself?
And how long have you been doing this?
