Stuck with a Gut

So...everyone tells me I am losing weight; I put on one of my suits in relative comfort for church Sunday; I eat 5 servings of raw vegetables and fruit each and every day; I do around 60 minutes of exercise 6 days a week; I limit my calories to between 2,000 and 2,300 each day.

All of these things sound good, but I have to admit I am stuck. I have been doing this for several months now and what have I gained? I have not lost any actual pounds.

I am a very statistical person. I love stats and numbers and percentages. The magic number that I can go by...weight...has not moved. I weigh the same. How annoying. I just want the scale to move. I want to have substantive results that can me measured by me. I don't feel like there is a big visual difference that I can point to.

I guess I should have done body measurements, perhaps that would have been helpful. but either way I am stuck. I feel like I can't do anything right. I guess I probably sound like I am whining. But really I just want to see more results from my hard work. I like to weld and work with metal because it gives me undeniable results. I do not like things that do not give me feedback, and right now I feel like I am stuck without any feedback from my body.
