Default Losing pregnancy weight!

Ok so my baby is 10 months old now, i recently stopped breastfeeding so now I have been drinking protein shakes twice a day, taking a green tea diet pill , eating low carb meals and working out for 35-40 minutes 4 times a week...its been 1.5 weeks now and i have lost only 2 pounds! What am I doing wrong?! Do you think if I cut out the protein shakes I'll lose more weight? I have 23 pounds to lose still and Im getting depressed! I thought I would be back to normal weight by now Any suggestions?

How many carbs are in the protein shakes? I thought those were usually loaded with sugar.

Also, did you go through an "induction" phase for the low-carb? I find that when I've gone off my plan (such as I did while pregnant) if I don't go through a brutal induction period the weight only creeps off.
Next Goal - 167.0 pounds (BMI 27) 88.5 pounds lost
Lovin' the Paleo diet. Meat, veggies and more energy than ever.
Success! A bit more to lose, but I met my big goal.
