Just wanted to throw my two cents behind what has already been said.

* Make weight lifting your focus. Lift heavy, use weight that allows only 5 to 6 reps to failure. To see examples of how this can change your body check out the Female Transformations of the Week at Bodybuilding.com Bodybuilding.com Writer: Female Transformation Of The Week - How Much Have You Changed?
* Use HIIT so you don't have to do 2 hours of cardio. This lets you work smarter not harder.
* Protein, follow Nik's suggestion. I have read countless times of women who were frustrated in their weight loss efforts until they increased their protein intake.
* Take measurements. As almeeker said, we can't always 'see' the changes.

Don't get discouraged, make the tweaks and stay consistent. The results will come, although never as fast as we would like.
