Only healthy other than a treat every once and a while

It could be that you are building muscle right now as you're losing fat, so the scale isn't showing a drop yet. Keep at it!!!

If you are working out but not doing cardio, you shouldn't be losing weight. If you want to lose weight, you need to do cardio and make sure you burn a little more calories than what you have been eating through food. 

You burn about 1300 calories each day just for basic functions (your brain consumes them), and you burn those day in, day out. Nothing will ever change that. If you eat 2000 calories a day, then you still have 700 calories in reserve that you should spend, plus a few hundred if you want to lose weight. You burn calories the moment you do something, so working, cleaning the house, having sex all burn calories. If your daily activities don't allow you to spend all your calories, then you need to do cardio. Your cardio should allow you to burn the amount of excess calories plus a few hundred.

Obviously, you have to be smart about what you eat. Some people, after working out, eat the burnt calories right back.

Butt crunches, ab workouts and the like only work for people who already have a healthy body fat rate. First, you need to take care of your body fat, get your blood pumping, breathe rapidly, maybe break out a sweat, and when you find the fat has mostly gone, you can start working specific areas to tone up.

Unless this is what you have been doing. If yes, then all I can see is you haven't been working out long enough for results to show. Keep at it, it doesn't happen overnight. Meanwhile, enjoy the extra flexibility and endurance you must already feel from working out.
