It's hard to say without more details. We don't know what, how much you've been eating, what you do for exercise, how much you exercise, how long you've been stuck at your current weight, your current weight and goal weight. Opening up your nutrition/fitness tracker to "shared" would make it easier to help answer your question. You can do this by going to your "sparkpage" and switching it to "shared".

I know exactly what your going through. I'm stuck in the same rut. I'm guessing it happens to most people. I'm just going to keep pushing on and see where it goes.

Well this could happen for a variety of reasons. But first have you been tracking your calories accurately and your fitness accurately? When people aren't losing weight, a lot of the time it tends to be due to the fact that they are not keeping track properly. Don't forget its calories in versus calories out. You need a consistent deficit to lose weight.
What types of fitness have you been doing? Be sure to include both cardio and strength training. Both are important.
Keep an eye on the types of foods you are eating. Although you may be eating within your calorie range, you may be consuming too much sodium or too many carbs to notice a difference on the scale. Some people are sensitive to certain types of foods, so track these and see if you are high or over.
Lastly, have you lost any inches? You may just be gaining muscle at first. Remember that the number on the scale isn't everything. Feeling good about yourself, your body and your health are more important.

How long have you been at this weight? What are you doing exercise-wise? Have you had your body composition taken?
