I find that a high-protein, low-carb, breakfast is the most important part of losing weight. My most consistent one is an omelet with mushrooms, 2 eggs, and 1 egg-white. A book that helps me is Protein Power. It helps calculate how much protein you need each meal, and has suggestions for vegetables with low glycemic impact.
On weight, if you are starting to exercise you might be gaining muscle, which will prevent your initial fat loss from showing up on the scales but will fuel later fat loss. Be patient and strong! Your efforts will pay off!
