I had a peek at your Nutrition Tracker and am wondering how accurate the calories etc. are. What brought that to mind was that I noticed that you protein some days was very low - like around 50g, but that you had eaten a potato and black bean casserole - the black beans would have had protein in them. Then I looked further and noticed that you have assorted mixed veges - 1 serving 50 calories, but no carbs and no protein. The Peanut butter is lacking carbs, too!
By tracking these sorts of nutrients accurately you might find that the balance of the nutrients, including sodium, could be setting you up for a wee bit of fluid retention. IF your calories have been put in accurately, then you aren't eating enough to sustain the exercise.
I know that it might seem strange, but UNDEReating can actually hinder your weight-loss. You have running for 64 minutes burning over 700 calories - you really NEED to eat more to sustain that. 1200 calories is for an average weight SEDENTARY woman - heavier people need more calories for that sedentary life, therefore they also need more calories workouts. I don't know what your calorie range is, but I would be inclined to make sure that your exercise regime is entered accurately into the SP site so that you can be given the correct range. Be realistic in your goal, AND the speed you want to do this. Quick losses aren't realistic - they go back on, and can be very bad for your health. Slow losses really ARE the best.
Apart from that, don't be disheartened when you don't see the scales moving. They are only a small portion of this. The more important ones that you should use for a guide are:
how your clothes fit
your energy levels
the quality of your sleep
the condition of your skin/hair
and, your bloods (cholesterol/blood sugars, etc.)
There are other factors too. It may well be that others see something in you that you haven't seen - perhaps a sparkle in your eyes or that lift in your step. They may not know what is happening, but odds are that they will comment that you are looking good. When THAT happens, I can tell you from experience it will really lift your spirits.
