And do you need to lose weight or are you just wanting to be thinner than you are? There is a big difference there. If you are already at a healthy normal weight you body will do its best to stay there. Wanting to be a size zero doesn't make it a healthy thing to be......

I agree with FORGOTTENNMEMS- protein bars are usually VERY high in kcals, so if you're not tracking them, you could be adding on kcals. Ever seen mean girls-remember those 'weird Swedish nutrition bars my mom uses to lose weight?" If you're not measuring everything, just guestimating, then you may be over on your kcal count. Have you figured out what you would need to eat to lose weight?
Also, if you're not tracking your drinks you could be sneaking extra kcals in there-you'd be horrified at what some drinks contain! Even diet drinks are bad, as they usually contain loads of sodium which retain water weight.
Lastly, relying solely on the gym for exercise may be doing more harm than good, esp if you do the same classes/machines all the time. Your body gets use to the intensity and won't burn kcals as efficiently. It may be an idea to mix up your workout schedule.

Do you track EVERYTHING you eat every single day and also how many calories you burn every single day? You need a calorie deficit to lose weight that means burning more than you eat. I can't see your profile.. so I that also means I can't see your food tracker or fitness tracker... that would help me and other people help you figure out what's going wrong for you.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything.
1 Corinthians 6:12
No temptation has taken you except what is common to men. But God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out in order for you to be able to endure it.
You don't say how much weight you have to lose, so do them first at 0 weight to lose. That will give you how much to maintain. Take 500 calories off to lose a pound a week.

For a year now I have been eating healthy, exercising daily, but I am not losing the weight. I burning over 550 calories and sometimes more by going to the gym 5x a week, but still nothing My food intake is salads, chicken, fruit, eggs, and after working out a protein bar. With being a student I don't have the money to do weight watchers or jenny crag so its all on me. I feel like I have tried everything. Any advice would help. Thanks
