Sarah, I never asked... what is "slow" results for you? Don't forget that healthy weight loss is only a couple of pounds per week.
I kinda described my "slow" results to Janet above, but it seems like every time I diet and exercise (and this is not very frequent!), I lost 2-3 lbs, then gain it all back plus more, even though I'm still exercising and eating good. Until our vacation last week, I had been doing Body For Life, by the book, all the weight training and cardio, and had lost only 6 lbs in 8 weeks. I must just still be eating too much, either that or BFL just doesn't work for me!
