Your body is holding onto weight because you aren't feeding it enough calories. You're in classic "starvation mode".

Most people need to eat at least 1200 calories a day, unless under a physician's supervision...and the VAST majority of people need more than that to lose. You are eating, depending on quantities, very few calories - hence, no weight loss.

Your body is trying to save it's life by not burning anything, because you're not feeding it.
