MCHELLE81- your 4 kg weights are really 8.8 lbs! In my book that's 9! You go, girl!

Use what's comfortable for you. If by the end of one set, you feel like you can do more, than increase your weights.

I think most people on this site use 3-5 pounds.

It's easy to say you're too tired, too stressed, too busy, too this or too that. Too bad. The only way you'll strip away the fat is to start by stripping away the excuses.

It depends on you and what feels like a good workout for you. Although for level 3 where she has you hold weights for the cardio - you may want to be careful with 8 lb weights. I'm thinking in particular about the jumping jacks and the punches. But again it depends on your strength.
