What are you eating?: Having been there myself, i completely understand. You need a well-rounded plan that also addresses your caloric intake, an eating plan that gives you high nutrient content and not "empty" calories. There are some good apps out there you can use that allow you to program what you have eaten, the type of exercise you are doing and for how long. This will give you the information you need to lose wt.

Losing weight: To lose weight, get ur resting metabolism rate done(weight loss centers do this). This determines the total number of calories you need to lose 1-2lbs/week. Decreasing 500cal/day will give you a 1lb wt loss in 1wk; drink water (1/2 your body weight), eat small meals about 150-200cal 2-4x/(depending on your metabolism rate) and 500cal/meal at night: lean protein/veggies; avoid carbs, .
