How long have you been doing this? If it is only a week or two, then it is too soon to reap the rewards, and reap you will if you continue with this journey. Weight and how clothes fit are only one part of the success story. There are many other changes that will be happening that you can't see but a visit to your Dr in time might reveal - things like your Blood Pressure; your HbA1c and your Cholesterol. Then there is the quality of your sleep; the condition of your hair/skin; your overall fitness/stamina. I mean, you have gone from 10 minutes to 50 minutes with your running - that is a fantastic achievement in itself. When a person starts doing a fair bit of exercise they tend to develop muscle, but are losing the fat, and the muscle also requires extra fluid for this process, so this can skew a person's perception of success.
Are you weighing all of your food and entering it into the Nutrition Tracker? This is a brilliant tool which can enable us to tweak as and when necessary.
Another thing that I wonder - you mention now running 50 minutes and doing other exercises, so I wonder if you are fairly close to your goal weight (or at least your BODY's ideal weight) because the closer you are to it, the harder it is to lose. A lot of people THINK that they need to lose weight, and work like the clappers to do so, but in fact they are already at a good weight, and what they are wanting to achieve is below ideal.
It took 16 months for me to lose my first 50lb. I never noticed the changes until I had lost a fair bit.
Don't go giving up ...... Hang in there - remember, Rome wasn't built in a day!
