You are stuck in the same old routine. While you may be putting in the time at the gym, you may be stuck in the same workout or intensity, which will not change your body or move the scale. As you become more fit, you must challenge your muscles with greater work to achieve results.
Solution (s): Make a trade during your strength routine by adding more weight for less reps. Keep notes of where you started and your progress. This will keep you accountable and get you some results.
You can't find the time to workout like you used to. Did fitness drop to #9635251 on the priority list for one reason or another?

Solution (s): We have all heard that phrase, "abs are made in the kitchen", right? Well, it does have some truth to it. You may be gaining muscle, but you won't see it with a layer of fat on top. Try keeping track of what you consume, either with a free app on your smart phone, or a pen an paper. You may be able to spot a pattern that does not serve you. We all have unique nutritional needs, so I won't get into specifics. Seeking out the advice of a registered dietitian helped me to lose and keep off my last 10 pounds!
