Dear Delemma
If you received your low-GI, low-fat diet from a dietitian then please contact her/him again and discuss this problem that you are losing weight so slowly. The dietitian may be able to adjust your energy intake to induce improved weightloss. If this does not help then it may be a good idea to consult an Endocrinologist (a medical dr who specialises in hormonal imbalances) to check if you suffer from thyroid, insulin or female hormone imbalances (PCOS) and to prescribe appropriate treatments.
Holding thumbs that you can start losing weight more steadily.
Best regards
