Ugh...I've hit a wall.

I am turning to you all for some helpful advice.
I have been working out like a maniac the last 6 months. I've lost 26 pounds so far. Yay me! HOWEVER...here's where the "ugh" comes in.
I seem to have hit my plateau with 3 months left until my wedding. I have only lost the last 6 pounds in the past 2 months!!!! Ideally, I would like to lose 10-15 more pounds (20 if I'm lucky). I had a breakdown at the gym last week with my trainer because I actually GAINED 2 lbs from the last weigh in. I know that it's all diet and exercise...especially cardio for burning fat. However, I have been doing all of that. I'm in the gym 5 days a week for crying out loud!! I am one more meltdown from eating 10 cheeseburgers!!!!!
Does anyone have any helpful advice or hints for a girl that can't seem to break the barrier? Is there any workouts or healthy diets that have worked for you to lose the last 10 pounds
ARGH...it's so frustrating. Looking forward to anyone's answers!! Thanks in advance.

- No More Trouble Zones
- Banish Fat & Boast Metabolism
The workouts from the first two DVDs are 50-minute long and I promise you will get a really good work out from it.
As for diet, cut down on alcohol, sugar and carbohydrates. Have you tried the South Beach diet?

Also, I sometimes do a double workout day where i workout in the morning and the afternoon or evening. Sounds crazy but it works wonders. Just don't over do it and make sure you are eating enough calories and drinking PLENTY of water.
