I think the key is to focus not on weight but on fitness. The exercise you're doing now has not, as far as I can tell, moved on from what you did say one month ago. And it should be, as you get fitter.
So for example, if you're cycling for 10 minutes and burning 50 calories, then progress means that you either burn 70 calories in 10 minutes, or cycle for longer than the hour you're doing now.
That's probably not feasible, so the solution is then to increase the intensity. Raise the level of training, because you're fit enough to burn more than 5 Cal per minute. You should probably be aiming for 8 to 10 calories per minute.
If you do that, and continue to train for 60 minutes every second day, you will be burning 480 calories instead of 300 calories, and that is significant.
Obviously, you have to look at diet at the same time, this is just as important, and so keep it in mind.
I would not consider medical reasons until this is done. Focus on fitness and then you'll see where the "ceiling" is.
