Cool Fitness model comp/ tri training and weight loss.... Can I do all at once?

Hi, So I've been trying to do all the things I love and lose weight. My weight yoyo's. Would I be better off focusing on either a fitness model comp or a tri or weight loss instead of trying to do all three at once? Thank you for any help!

Fatigue mid workout?

The past week or two I have been finding myself burning out before my workout is done. I get 2 solid sets/reps done and after the muscle just doesn't have strength left.

Is it all in my head?

I've only had 2 sessions with my trainer so far, and 2 others on my own (following his guidelines), and I think I already see some results... specifically in my arms (bis and tris) and my abdomen. Is that possible? Are newbie gains quick to feel/notice?
