Our expert says:
I can't really judge what is going on because you don't list your present weight in kg and height in metres so that I can work out your BMI to see if you are overweight or not. It is possible that you are ingesting more energy than you require (the peanut butter, nuts, energy bar, mayo and sugar could be increasing your energy intake?). For weightloss it is good to reduce your energy intake to 6300 kJ per day. Otherwise if you are already close to your normal weight then your body would resists losing more weight. Also make sure that the exercise you do at the gym is mainly aerobic or cardio (jogging, spinning, skipping, rowing, swimming) because working with weights will firm you up and build muscle tissue, but it does not burn as much energy as cardio exercise. If this persists and you are very overweight, then it may be a good idea to have a medical checkup to see if you suffer from hormone imbalances (female hormone, thyroid or insulin).
