Don't seem to be losing weight

I'm probably being impatient but normally when I diet/exercise I lose weight pretty quickly. This time though I'm trying to make a life style change to keep the weight off.

I have been doing this for a few weeks, and have been going to various gym classes including arobics. body pump. yoga and circuit as well as being really good with food and not having carbs in the evening/late.

Anyone got any tips? I'm a bridemaid in November so I'd really like to look better for that. I'm only just over 5'1 so any weight loss/gain shows a lot on me.

here are my two cents on the possible reasons:

1) you've gotten older and it's more and more difficult to lose weight with age;
2) you've screwed up your metabolism with the previous fast diets;
3) you're suddenly consuming too little calories and your body doesn't understand what's going on so it fights back.

Try adding Interval Training and up the intensity of your workouts. Also had weight training to build muscle and lose inches

Thanks for the ideas...

I'm only 21 so I don't think the age thing is too much of a factor, and I've never crash dieted or done really stupid fad ones just cut out crappy food so I can't see that it's had too much of an affect. I'm trying to eat a balanced diet now, cereal for breakfast, fruit in mid-morning, then pasta or something healthy but filling at lunch and then a light dinner. If I need to snack I eat fruit or have a cuppa soup or something light.

Other possibilities:

-you're consuming too many calories despite it being the 'good stuff' (do you count, measure, weigh, etc. so you really know your intake? It's SO easy to underestimate and calories add up quick...)
-if you take in liquid calories (lattes, soda, alcohol, etc.) are you counting those?
-it's still early, be diligent and focus on making those good choices and the results will follow...
