Most of the time it is a muscle weight. I know it is frustrating and I have been in the same boat for a while. My wieght remain the same despite working out and watching my calorie intake but I notice the difference in my energy and my size 1 pants actually started to fit. For me, that is already a success. It might also be helpful to change your mindset, instead of losing weight, try the mindset of being healthy.

It may seem like you are not losing any weight but if you are doing that much strength training you are actually gaining muscle as you lose the fat so in reality, you are losing weight. You are already in much better shape than you were just 2 weeks ago. With that much exercise you probably should be eating 1500 calories so I agree with Sunny there. I just think you should give it more time. It usually takes 3 to 4 weeks to see any real results on the scale. Good luck!
The thing is, if that you aren't eating enough, then your metabolism slows way down, and eventually your body basically goes into starvation mode, and you're not going to lose any weight. With the amount of exercising you are doing daily, this might be the cause of you not losing weight. I might try eating at the top of your scale, more like 1500 to 1600 calories for a few days and see if that changes anything?

I have been working out 60 to 90 minutes a day with strength training and cardio for two weeks now. I have not lost ONE single pound. I have kept my calorie intake below 1300 as well watching what I eat carefully. I just want to give up! What am I doing wrong?
