I've been trying to lose weight but I see no progress. I work out 3-4 times a week pretty rigorously. I also eat healthy. Why am I not losing weight?

In brief: Calorie balance

You did not mention your height or weight.
I will assume you are truly overweight. Your weight will always be a balance of how many calories you are eating vs how many you are burning up. If your weight is stable, it means that you are taking in the same number of calories that you are burning up. To lose weight you need to take in less or burn up more (or a combination of both).
