Purchase equipment or gym?
There are tons of workout dvds out there. Check out Amazon.com or Collagevideo.com. You can also get some free off youtube or check your local library. A mat and some light hand weights and you do some strength training/circuit training at home. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred is 25 minutes and will kick your butt in to shape. Get a pair of shoes and take your dog for a walk/run. There are so many different kinds out there that can help work your body hard. You don't actually need a gym or much equipment. Start out that way and keep looking.

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!
