Dear Lauren
I can't really judge your situation because you did not provide me with your present weight in kg and height in metres so that I can calculate your BMI. If your weight and BMI are already within the normal range then your body may resist losing additional weight. If you are overweight and your BMI exceed 25, then your diet may contain more energy than required, although this seems unlikely in view of all the exercise you are doing. Then again you may be developing muscle tissue with all this exercise and muscle tissue weighs more than fat tissue. Finally you may suffer from hormone imbalances (thyroid, insulin, female hormones) that hamper weight loss or depression which can prevent you losing weight.
Best regards
