You don't have a sparkpage, so I cannot go look at your exercise and nutrition trackers, so I will be of limited assistance.
First, it is important to give lifestyle changes time. It took me 8 weeks before I lost a single pound on the scale, was I was working out and eating right and tracking everything. I did lose inches, though, and found I was building endurance while exercise.
I know there is that idea of "eat less to lose more, faster!", but your body does not really work like that. You need to eat enough to fuel daily activities and fitness. If you eat to little, it can hamper your progress since you body will hold onto every calorie and make it darn near impossible to lose fat weight.
Check your goal- It may be unrealistic. The closer you are to a healthy/normal weight, the harder it will be to lose. A person who weights 200+ lbs can lose 2lbs per week, but a person who weights 150 trying to get to 130 will have a slower go of it, and that is expected. If you are already at a normal weight for your height, you will find it very difficult to lose.
Quality of the food matters, and staying within your ranges is important. You want to make sure you are eating an appropriate amount of protein, fat and carbs, as well as getting plenty of fiber. Aim for at least 5-6 servings of fruit and vegetables per day, and avoid (when possible) processed, high salt foods.
