Working out all the time but not losing weight

Im a 21 year old woman. I do at least an hour and a half of cardio everyday at least 6 days a week. I have been in the same routine for a few years so that might be a factor. My workout includes the eliptical on high resistance, occassionally the treadmill and sometimes weight training for my arms. I have not been able to lose anymore wieght and am wondering what I should be doing differently. I have been trying to loose around 30 pounds for a while now and have not been able to lose any weight. Any suggestions would be helpful.

thank you!

Healthy diet and exercising is the best way. Don't use fat burners as they are having their sideeffects and also you can gain weight after using fat burners.

When I was in my late teens I took five ballet lessons a week. I am small-boned and my normal weight is 115. But in late adolescence I went up to 140, very uncomfortable for someone with my build. With strenuous ballet I lost not one ounce. And this is why. I was going to college, working to pay for it, did not get enough sleep and ate very little. I preferred to put my money on ballet rather than food.

When I graduated and led a more normal life, I was eating more and sleeping more and, without dieting, dropped back to my normal weight.

I don't know what your lifestyle is. But if you don't sleep enough, or eat enough of the proper foods, your metabolism is adversely affected.

hi, first question is how much r u drinking? and how much sleep and u getting? 8 glasses and 8 hrs? if ur not then this could be a factor explaining why ur not losing the weight. if u r then it might be like u sed tht ur exercise is the same. do u swim? its a great exercise for changing body shape and works those muscles well. r u stressed? if u r or u dnt hav an outlet for the daily hassle then this could stop you from losing weight. why not try changing ur diet a bit and see if tht makes a change?
