Next steps

I'm around 19 years-old and until around a month ago hadn't even been near a gym. I started off at 17 1/2 stones/111 kg and I'm now down to around 100 kg. 
At the moment I feel like I'm hitting a brick wall and I'm unsure what to do to continue losing fat, e.g. should I spend more time doing cardio or spend it in the weight room. My gym has plenty of training machines but doesn't have any barbell/dead-lift bars.
Any help would be appreciated especially from those who have been in the same place that I am currently in.

    Hi mate and welcome.
    I'm not sue what your goals are but I'm assuming you want to shed fat and build a little muscle.
    As you are a beginner and young you will build muscle very easily at first. Work to a proper routine (might I recommend stronglifts 5x5) and ensure you are eating enough calories to drop weight slowly. 11kg in 4 weeks is quite fast. Aim for about 0.5-1kg per week.
    Lift safely and heavy, work hard and I guarantee in 6 months time you will be very happy with what you've achieved.

    You need to follow a system that covers your meal plan and workouts as well. Set your precise goal. Measure it and begin moving towards it. Skip neither cardio nor weight lifting, just find out your right balance. Right means that fit personally to you and your goal. Cardio is essential for me. I do it regularly and sometimes I replace warm-ups bt cardio. One thing to consider is what type of cardio makes the most outcome for you. You may look up here to choose: <a href=”/”></a>. And remember that constance is an ace trump.
