Hi!

You don't mention how tall you are - that gives a better sense of what a reasonable target weight might be for you.  The fact that you play squash a few times a week suggests that you're pretty fit - but you don't mention anything about your diet.  You might find it helpful to keep a very detailed food diary for the next two week - write down everything you eat or drink, and generally how much.  You might be surprised by some of the choices you make - keeping a food diary usually helps people start making some healthier choices without even realizing it!

hi am 1.56 tall, i drink plenty water and have cut sugar out of my diet as much as possible, i eat very healthy.
i am very conscious of what i eat, i have been basically eating salads every day for lunch the past two months,to try help with weight loss. but i picked up three kgs.

i am just at my wits end.

Maybe your calorie count is too low for your activity levels??  Sometimes being too strict or restrictive can hinder weight loss.  Just a thought.  
Keeping a food diary is a good idea.
