Our expert says:
I think the cardio is the way to go, but don't totally bin the weights. Even if "weights" becomes a core session once a week, and a few body weight exercises like lunges, squats, calf raises etc. Those are important to keep you strong and reduce injury risk, and help you keep lean mass up.
So that's really very important. I think though that the biggest change will come not so much from doing different things, but from training at a slightly higher intensity at least once or twice a week. Lift the intensity so that you burn say 700 Calories in a 40 min session (that's a pretty intense session, as you'll discover). And don't overdo it, but if you can get something into those sessions where you're training harder, raising that heart rate, it often makes a difference.
Then the advice nobody wants to hear is that all the training in the world doesn't do much if you are not eating well. And sometimes, a reasonable diet can be made into a good diet with a few small changes, adn that is often the difference you need. So I'd look at this as an important piece of the puzzle.
