Diane,
I will say I was 208 lbs before and got down to 135 in 8 months but have climbed back to the weight I am due to a perm back disability and medications. This has occurred over the last 2 yrs and now I'm finally at a place where I can start trying to lose weight, but the first time I did it I was working out 5-6x a wk and I definitely had to change up my routines... My body got used to doing the same exercises. So I challenged my body and starting running on an uphill incline instead of just running the normal 6 miles, I started biking at a higher intensity, did a cardio kickboxing class, tried yoga, etc... And the lbs started shedding. I never did I stop drinking soda the first time or stopped eating fast food, but I did limit the intake of those items. Maybe switch up your routine, add an extra set or increase the incline.. That may help. I know the first time I tried list weight.. This is what helped me.. Just a suggestion ;)

Hey Diane, it sounds like you're doing a great job! Maybe you should get a heart rate monitor to get an idea of how your body is doing during your work outs. Before I got one, I was doing T25 and dripping in sweat, so I thought I was getting a good calorie burn in. It turns out that I was averaging around 180 calories burnt. I got a heart rate monitor and found that my body reacts a lot more to cardio than it does to any type of weight training. Apparently I have a very low resting heart rate so it's difficult to not be irritated by people that can easily burn twice as many calories as me, in half the time. Now that I'm doing more cardio though, I see a lot more positive results. You can do this! :-)
