I am around the same weight as you are, I started on the same diet as you have,not quit all the way vegetarian? I do eat fish. I have lost ten pounds in a Month(a lot of it in the stomach). I stay away from soy and just walk a lot for exercise.
I think it is the elliptical machine that is turning your fat(not to insult you) into muscle. It sounds like we have the same build and need to do light exercise, not the kind thats going to build you legs into muscle and make it look like you have not lost any weight on the scale. Hope this helps you and good luck and stick with it for life, I am.
