Default Is this a plateau

I started PMSing and having food cravings two weeks ago, and gained 6 pounds. I'm pretty much off my period. I'm still spotting a little bit. But since last Wednesday, I've been eating 1200 calories, exercising at least 15 minutes a day and meeting all my fit bit goals. I bought a ski machine this past weekend. And in general I was doing pretty good. I was so sure I would have lost the period weight, since I am pretty much off it, and since I worked so hard. But when I weighed myself I was the exact same weight. I did not lose even one ounce. I weighed myself on two different scales, and they both said the same thing. I was kind of confused. Especially since I felt like I had lost weight. I am doing the same thing today. Eating 1200 calories and exercising. I'm thinking if the same thing happens tommorow, I've just hit some kind of weird plateau. Does anyone know if this is whats going on and how to work through this?

Our bodies are sometimes a real mystery, I weigh pretty much the same as I did in February and in March I added exercise 5 days a week min of 30 min each day. So go figure, I actually have gained 3 lbs! Just hang in there the scale will move. You may also be retaining water was you exercise, drinking plenty of water to keep your joints lubracated

Goal one 10lbs by Thanksgiving -- missed met Dec 5
Goal two 15lbs by January one -- December 26
Goal three 20lb by Feb 21, 2017 -- January 23
Goal four 25lb by Feb 21, 2017 (spouses birthday) -- March 5
Goal five 30 lb by March 20, 2017--well it was wishful thinking...still waiting
Goal six goal weight by July 2017
Maintenance August 2017....sheesh that will be so much harder
