I am trying to lose a LOT of weight, is working out 3 days a week enough?
40 min of cardio and then weights, stretching, so I am at the gym about an hour.

I'd try to add more cardio, upping it to at least 5 days a week. I generally run 3 days a week and bike 2, and then do weights 3-4 days a week after the run/ride. Food is 80% of the battle. You need to eat at least 1200 calories a day, and I agree that eating clean is the best way to go. I've lost 50 lbs this way. Here's a link to my journal with clean eating basics.

I do cardio daily usually run on the treadmill or outside for 30 minutes to an hour. I work out at the gym 3-4 days. At that pace I was able to lose 80 pounds in less than a year. I changed my eating to mostly vegetarian which helped with the weight loss tremendously.
