Why am I not losing weight anymore?

I've been on a diet for a few weeks now, and in the first two weeks I lost 2kg, but in the third week my weight has slowed down. I weighed 61kg, and now I'm 59kg and wanting to get to 55kg. My height is 165cm. I've been having 1,200 - 1,400 calories a day, and it was working until now. I've been eating really healthy, breakfast, fruits, salad sandwiches, and of course the odd treat once a week. Is it because I'm now toning my body? I run 6km every second morning, and do half an hour of light weights between running days. Even though I haven't been losing weight, I can still notice the difference in my legs, and my jeans look nicer. So what's happening with my body?

    Muscle weighs more than fat. Based on your experience fitting in your jeans, I would say that you are still losing your stored fat, but replacing that weight with lean muscle (which is a great thing. More muscle=more calories needed to fuel them. As long as you're using them you should continue seeing improvement).

    maybe there's something wrong in your diet.
