Keep in mind that our body weight can and does fluctuate up to 5 or 6 lbs. a day and that weight fluctuation can be affected by our sodium intake. Since you are getting lots of good exercise you could also be building muscle which weight more than fat. Since you are exercising and only eating 1200 or less calories, you are probably putting yourself into starvation mode. Try eating enough to have 1200 calories remaining after exercise, which is the amount your body need for healthy maintenance.
Perhaps you scale is not showing a loss, but other measurements are. Have you measured your neck, chest, waist, hips, thighs, calves, ankles, biceps, arms, and wrists? You could well be losing inches even though the scale stubbornly refuses to go down. Are your clothes fitting looser?
The only way we can fail at this is if we give up. Keep on fighting. It will come.
