No changes in my weight from working out?

Hey ISTfags. I am 18 F (160cm, 60kg) and in the last two weeks, I have started working out again after not doing so since Feb 2021.

Instead of going to the gym (as I previously did), I do a mixture of body weight and free weights and only do cardio based exercises for my warmup. I’ve also started to go to bed at 10PM and wake up at 7AM but have not been able to adjust to the new sleeping and waking times I’ve set as I find it hard to start sleeping. On top of that I’ve started to take my nutrition seriously and have been consuming around 100g of protein and 7000KJs in one day. (These are all new adjustments from when I previously went to the gym and exclusively did weighted and machine exercises with little cardio).

Is it normal to see no changes in weight despite all these changes? Also, I do not have a scale which can view body fat and have one which looks very to the one shown in the picture I’ve attached to this post.

Thank you for reading my rather long post and I appreciate any feedback which is relevant to this post!

    in what timeframe? try reducing your intake and just measure your waist thighs arms etc regularly to see if there is any difference

    Give it 4 months and don't break your calorie deficit that often. 2 weeks is literally the same amount of time that I have been working out after not being active for over 9 years. 220 lbs M 30yo.

    I noticed one day recently that my weight was 217 lbs, and then when I checked it later after eating and stuff it was literally up to 219. These numbers mean nothing this early in the game. Just put yourself on auto pilot and weigh your self and compare before & after pics after 4 months.

    Your cardio choices are one thing and really do what ever you enjoy and can sustain. The real thing that will lose you weight is just the calorie deficit. So read the OP in the /fat/ threads and somewhere in there is a great article that says:

    "Here’s the thing: You can’t force fat loss. The only thing you can do is coax your body to drop fat by eating in a calorie deficit and complementing it with training. So, firstly:

    Calm the fuck down and be patient. You didn’t get out of shape in a week, you’re not getting in shape in a week. The people who have this “fast fat loss” mentality are also the ones who tend to gain it back after the diet ends, or quit entirely after a few weeks. Not because aggressive dieting doesn’t work, but because this mentality encourages the use of fad diets that, a) won’t be sustainable in the long-term, and b) doesn’t help you build the habits that allow you to maintain the loss in the long run. Aa"

    Your weight loss journey is stalling because if your stubborn refusal to admit that you will never be a woman. You will never become a cute little girl with a cute fuckable ass, you are a short brown man with a pugdy squat torso. Also nobody fucking knows how many kJ's are in a calorie, stop that. You have to face this reality before making proper adjustments. Good luck my pajeet friend!

    Two weeks isn't a long time to see a difference unless you're on a very drastic energy deficit.
    If you're only on a slighty energy deficit, say -200kcal per day, then it would take around 20 days to lose 1lb of fat.
    When you consider that water weight fluctations + bolus/chyme/stool in your gut can easily change your weight by a dozen pounds or more, then its very possible that you've lost a little bit of body weight but that you're holding a bit more fluid in your body because you've started using your muscles again and you may be holding a bit more food in your gut due to changed diet.
    Keep weighing yourself every day and keep a note somewhere. Ideally you should weigh yourself at the same time of day to minimise food/water variations. A good time to do this is in the morning after you have used the toilet but before you have eaten or drank anything.
    Keep noting your daily morning weight for another 3 weeks or so, and if it isn't trending downwards, then either adjust your food intak downwards a little more, or increase your activity a little bit more, even by just walking for 1 hour extra each day you can burn an extra few hundred calories.

      For everyone wondering:
      160cm/60kg is 5'3, 133lbs. 23.6bmi (most likely chubby and no muscle)
      7000kj (who the fuck uses that) is about 1700 calories.

      Given this, if you are "exercising" 3x a week, you will be in a 100 calorie daily deficit, which would equal 700 a week. A pound of fat is 3500 calories. This means it will take 5 weeks for you to lose a single pound of fat, daily weight fluctuations can be around 5lbs daily too, so you won't even know you lost it till half a year from now.

      You need to eat less if you want to lose weight, 7000kj for your weight and body is still too high, and it takes way more than 2 fucking weeks to lose weight. You also probably don't need 100grams of protein either unless you're 15% body fat, and lifting heavy weights, which I doubt you do. (Heavy doesn't mean those 20lb dumbells you're most likely tossing around)

      She's only at a 100 calorie deficit, and thats only if she's not lying to herself about how many calories she burns working out or how much she eats.

        We have no way of knowing that. Even if she's measuring everything as honestly and accurately as possible, the margin of error on food labels + from calculating calories burned from exercise is far too high.

          *she's only at a 100cal deficit at most
          There
          Even if she was spot on, which she probably isn't given the variation in calories burned and consumed, she would only be losing 1lb every 1.5 months. Which would mean for her to see any noticeable difference at all, she would have to do this for an entire year.
          You're not going to build up muscle doing this, or lose any noticeable amount of weight. If you just want to lose fat, eat at a higher deficit, if you want to build muscle, you have to follow a non meme lifting routine. Op is beyond retarded which is typical of a women/18yo

            Eh, it could be a little over 100kcal deficit because of the thermic effect of her somewhat high protein diet, how intensively she lifts, etc. but even a 200kcal deficit would take nearly a month to lose 1lb.
            She hasn't replied again so I can only imagine she's read the advice so far and realises that she needs to eat less, train harder, and be patient.
