Macros and Not Losing Weight


I have attached some pictures. The first two are before I started counting macros. The last two are after 8 weeks. My macros are about 1650 with 53 fat, 190 carbs, and 106 protein. Most days I was close to hitting them although I could have been a little more consistent with a few "cheat" days. I know I have lost some bodyfat and gained some muscle but not what I considered significant after 8 weeks. I am consistently 132 on the scale and would like to get back down to about 120. I do bodybuilding workouts and some powerlifting 4 days a week. I usually do HIIT two days a week. Should I keep doing what I'm doing, lower calories, or raise calories?
