Your plan sounds good to me. Are you gaining muscle? Pineapple and Watermelon taste yummy (my favorites, too), but I wouldn't snack on them all the time (as listed above?). Along with bananas, they are the highest sugar fruits. Maybe try carrots with hummus or grapes. Walking is good (any movement is good), but it isn't my first choice for losing weight. I think sometimes our bodies get used to a particular exercise - maybe switch it up a bit? The only reason I personally am not crazy about walking is that unless you are doing power walking w/weights, does your heart rate come up enough to be considered cardio and to lose weight? One of my friends had really good look on www.ediets.com. They personalize a menu plan for you, have nutritionists on staff for questions, conduct online meetings on different topics, have weight ins, etc. All in a really positive and pro-active approach. You can choose from 11 or so different eating plans. She really liked the accountability and convenience. And as far as the Green Tea pills go, maybe try getting energy from your food. More protein such as chicken, fish, and even red meat (once in awhile)? Best of luck!
