Default Newb needs a hand.......

Hi everyone, been lurking here and using Fitday off and on for awhile now. Just got serious again and joined a gym and have been working out every day for an hour + a day. I have Psoriatic Arthritis so I have to keep the weights sensible. 20-25 min on bike 30-35 min intensive circuit training moving from one machine to another instead of resting between sets. Then if I have anything left i hit the treadmill for as long as I can stand 8-15 or so min. Started this the last week of Jan and have lost a total of 5 pounds...dissapointing as I have been working hard on eating right and counting calories...I am 56 year old male 275 lbs and have been eating 1600 + or - a day. The reason for this flurry of activity is new medication working wonderfully and enabling me to move again. Hoping the more experienced ones here can point out what I am doing wrong???? Thanks for any info in advance...
