Have paid attention to what your eating? Having a food diary can help :-)

Food diary is always good. You can be surprised by the real amount you have eaten.

Your goal should be to lose fat! Not to lose weight. Be gaining some extra muscle you will look better. And weight is heavely influenced by numerous factors. So you can only really see loss over longer period of time. And dont forget to focus on your food for fat loss

Honestly, you'll gain some weight in the beginning because you're building muscle, which weighs more than fat simply because it's a more dense tissue. However, at some point, you've got to force your body to burn more than your intake, thus burning off fat. Everyone that suggested a food diary is right on track; such a diary will help ensure that you're not taking in more calories than your body can burn off in a day. Be careful not to eat too few calories though because that could cause your body to go into starvation mode, where it will retain the fatty tissues and burn off the muscle in order to protect itself. Hope this makes sense. Understanding the "why" is a really important step. :)

To loose weight means to loose fat. The best way to loose fat is to follow a strict diet plan avoiding fatty foods and exercise with high intensity internal cardio combined with high intensity weight training. This burns fat FAST! So for example sprint for 30 - 40 seconds. Then recover full then repeat. After you done with 5 repetitions then start with your dumbell exercises. When do dumbell exercises you need to work more muscle groups and one time. And do them fast as possible then recover full and repeat. You can mix your sprinting with dumbell workouts or do dumbell workouts before or after sprinting.

Increase the treadmill incline to at least one, it will increase fat burn.
