My suggestion would be to flip the time of day when you consume your largest meal to morning. add veggies (greens) and a grain (I like purple barley, rice of the prairies, quinoa) instead of sausage or bacon. Cut out bread--do a lettuce or rice paper wrap for your sandwich. I shrunk 3 sizes just by doing that--making breakfast my big meal of the day, cutting out bread (this included pasta), sugar, and processed foods. I limited my dairy intake. I did not eliminate wine or increase the amount of exercise. I started doing this (flipping the big meal to morning) in June 2012. I told myself I would do this for 30 days. Within 21 days, I had "shrunk" one size.
I was rarely hungry between meals. If I was, I would eat some raw almonds or fruit. I did this not to lose weight, but to improve my energy level. It worked. I also drank a lot of water with either lemon juice/lime juice (freshly squeezed) or 1 T of cider vinegar (not for everyone, but I like tart). It has been almost 2 years and I have altered my eating habits substantially. If I make a dessert (when I have guests), I generally eat a very small portion and send the rest home with my guests. I keep dark chocolate chips in the house. A few (10-12) of those satisfy my urge for chocolate every now and again.
I do keep 2 small hand weights (2 lb) by the couch so when I'm watching TV, I do some arm curls, etc., during commercials. Losing weight is not about dieting, it is about changing your eating (and food shopping) habits. Good luck!
