Exercise Routines for Elliptical Trainers
When starting any exercise, it's good to work up to 30 minutes slowly. Once you raise your endurance and feel comfortable, you can start adding in more resistance or start with the programmed workouts. Check fitness sites (google) for some elliptical workouts. Fitness magazines also offer routines sometimes.

Atkins Diet
I do WW with a modified Atkins. I can't do regular Atkins because it causes me too many problems, but I lose better with lower carb. I focus on getting in my HG's (healthy guidelines). The lean protein, lean dairy, fruits and veggies. I find ways to lower carbs and keep pasta and breads to a minimum. Eziekiel bread is good and lower on the glycemic scale. I will just use less of something if it is higher calories. I use foods that are low on the glycemic scale. If you measure out your foods, you could probably follow Atkins while doing WW. But you might want to modify it with more carbs so you can get in fruits and veggies. It's about finding a balance that will work for you.

Switching weight loss plans
I have been on every diet known to man. You can successfully go to other plans, but if your current plan is a low carb type plan, then you may need to adjust your eating to which ever new type of plan you decide to go with. For example, Weight Watcher allows you to eat any thing you want in moderation (but it stresses fruits, veggies and lean protein and dairy), but if you eat more carbs than your are used to, you can temporarily gain weight. So you would need to add carbs in slowly. Choose a plan that fits easily in to your life. If you have to give up all the foods you love, you won't be able to sustain the diet long term and keep the weight off. Good luck!

sluggish metabolism
Sometimes putting too much stress on yourself can have the opposite effect of what you want. Are you clothes more loose? Have you been measuring yourself? Are you eating enough for all that you have been working out? It's sounds weird but not eating enough can make you not lose. Working out a lot can have that effect too. Your body may be losing fat, but you are not seeing it on the scale yet. You want to lose weight (not just to look good), but to help you live a long, healthy life. So all the things you are doing for yourself are great and you should not give up. You might also want to try to relax one night, have a slice of pizza and a glass of wine. So many people I know have done that after being incredibly strict and then dropped weight. Just keep plugging along and make changes with what you are doing until you find what works. Vary your diet and how many calories you eat each day. Eat 5 or 6 small meals a day instead of 3. Good luck!

Help, I can't take diet & excersize n e more
The key to exercising is finding something to do that you enjoy. It should not be a giant chore. At the same time, for exercise to become a habit, it takes time and patience. You might want to try a form of yoga that doesn't require you to sweat a lot. Walking is also great and you can do it anywhere. You want to make changes in your life that you can live with. So take different classes, go ice skating, bowling, etc. Now most of losing weight has to do with eating. I wish I knew the magic secret but I don't. You might want to make small changes in your diet so that you don't feel like your on a diet. Start by adding in more fruit and vegetables. Make sure you get in your calcium (studies show people who get calcium lose more fat than those who don't). Learn as much as you can about eating healthy. There's a magazine out called "Clean Eating" and it's all about eating healthy. It gives you 30 days of menu's and recipes. It might give you some ideas. Losing weight is very hard but you can do it. Good luck!
