I'm not sure what kind of results you're seeing? I hate to bring it up, but sometimes when expectations are not met, it's a function of the goal being too tight, and you might be on the right track. The reality is that weight loss takes a long time, and people often quit before they've had the time to succeed.
The supplements, I can assure you, are not needed, and so you can save a bit of money there. The diet, I hope, is going well, as you're right about it being most important.
You have to remember that in the first few months, you will see increases in muscle mass, an increase in blood volume, and this can account for a few kilograms. That often "hides" any losses, and again, people get despondent because of this, but things are on track. I think the key is to not worry about the number on the scale. My advice is to rather focus on getting fitter, stronger, and let the other things take care of themselves.
Just to answer your final question - you don't need extreme weight training, no. If that's what you're doing, then a change I'd suggest is more cardio, less of the heavy weight training. That helps a little, but at some stage, you need to get more cardio so that you shift the focus to weight loss.
