You are what u eat. Get your diet in line with an adequate workout routine and your results will go through the roof.

What does your diet consist of?

I count calories to stay under 2500 a day, but I dont restrict any particular type of food. I thought working out and counting calories would help me in the long run not gain the weight back that I have already lost. I do 8 cardio sessions a week and three strength training sessions.

2500 calories seems like a lot if you are trying to lose weight. I don't restrict types of food either, just control portions. Have you tried logging your foods either here or in a diary so you know exactly what you are eating? Have you set goals here so you know what your target calories should be, with exercise factored in?

Yes I've set my goals to know how many calories I should have daily...I think the food diary is my next step

80% nutrition, 10% exercise, 10% genetics---you are what you eat for sure.

first off what measurement are you trying to go by? the scale? honey, forget the scale! it's b.s., use a scale once every 2 weeks and then STAY OFF IT till you weigh again!!! a body fat reading will give you a much more decisive idea too see where you stand. remember muscle weighs more than fat.

and yes...

DIET!
(also a nod & a wink to supplementation)

A DAILY DIET DIARY IS AN OUTSTANDING IDEA, A MUST TO TRULY LOSE WEIGHT!!! keep in mind how clean/ dirty you are eating in regards to the total calorie count.

anyone who has been training like you previously stated has had to have made changes of some sort even if they were sitting around the rest of the day eating Doritos's (which I am sure you have not).

FITNESS IS A MARATHON NOT A SPRINT!

keep kicking ass girl!

yours in health & strength...

You need to have you're diet under control to see the type results you're looking for. Keep those portion sizes under control, eat tons of veggies, and be consistent with your workouts.

It really is 80% your diet that will determine what kind of results you get. If you are counting calories and still not losing then you need to consider that you may be estimating wrong or that you are still consuming too many calories. If you're calculations are accurate and you still aren't losing the weight you're looking for, then you may consider lowering your calorie intake by another 20% and check on your progress again after a week or two.
