From janet, child's age 13

My 13yr old daughter has been gaining weight over last 12 mths and was very inactive. Over last 12 mths we have been motivating her and begrudingly does a weekly bike ride joined local fitzone gym where she goes once a week and also goes swimming once a week too. I have started cooking meals at home limiting choclate and crisps to a minimum, she does not drink fizzy drinks only water or tea but she does not seem to be losing any weight at all even with this increased activity, how can I help her more to lose the weight as she finds it embarassing at school in pe?
