It's a little early still to be seeing results in terms of weight loss, perhaps. Some people would, but remember that we are not all the same and so we respond differently to training.
But I think what is important here is that you define your achievements a little differently - is weight loss the best thing to aim for early on? Probably not, I always advise people to look at their fitness levels first. And just looking at what you have done, it's not clear whether you are fitter now than 2 months ago. And you should see changes in fitness. So if that warmup and that rowing or cycling feels the same to you now as it used to, then perhaps you need to make changes, because you are not getting fitter. Perhaps you could try the following for a month or 6 weeks - first of all, can you get a 4th day a week in there? That would make a big difference. Then, try to cut down on the super circuit on at least 2 of these days - you don't really need this. Instead of spending maybe 15 minutes on the circuit, do cardio exercises instead. You could walk for 10 minutes at a brisk pace, you could row an extra 5, or cycle another 5. Or maybe just go straight for 20 minutes on rowing and cycling. But if you can increase the cardio on 2 days a week, you'll start to get fitter. And once you start getting fitter, then you can walk or cycle or row even faster and then you get even more fitter. And the fitter you get, the more weight you will lose. So that would be my approach. Add a day, and focus on fitness.
Finally, diet is vital. there's nothing obviously wrong with that protein shake, it's fine if you are hungry, but you may want to look at the rest of your diet, throughout the day. It's critical that you eat in relation to your activity. What happens so often is that people will exercise, but simply eat more. That doesn't help - you need to eat the same as before, and exercise more. Or cut down on the eating. But it's not so simple and so my advice is that you see a dietican about it, because it really is the critical part to your success.
