Food for the Traveler
I downloaded an app called "HealthyOut." You enter your dietary requirements (low cal, atkins, paleo, vegan, etc.) and it shows you menu items from nearby restaurants that fit those requirements. There's even a "no salad" setting, in case you get sick of having nothing but salads when you eat out.

Can Walking Help Lose Weight
Yes. The important thing is you get moving: elevate your heart rate, keep it elevated for 20-30 minutes and do it 3+ times a week. A brisk walk is better than a casual stroll.
Now, about hating exercise, I'm willing to bet that isn't true. Maybe you hate fitness classes or using the gym... but there it's probably something you enjoy doing. What I did ( and may help you) is make a list off activities that I stuck with over my life time. Even if I only did the activity for a year, even if it was something I did in grade school, it went on the list. Then, I tried to figure out what all those things had in common.
My list contained: gymnastics (all of grade school), swimming/ diving, Drill team, rifle team and belly dancing (probably because my mom took classes and I just kind of went along). So, I figured out I like competitive sports and being on a team, but I don't like sports in which the team's outcome depended on my individual performance.
I think if you made a similar list, you'd find stuff you like to do too.
Edited to remove weird swipe/mobile typos. I think I got them.

Fit Karate-ka Classes (Guess Who's Teaching?)
Hey guys! I'm excited to say I'm going to be holding a 6-week fitness class in Aurora, IL. (Seriously, who could have predicted this?)
The Fit Karate-ka Class introduces the basic punches, kicks and blocks of Isshinryu karate. Designed for adults who are new to martial arts or fitness, the course introduces just a couple new concepts each week. The class itself, however, will be fast-paced and you will keep moving. When you complete the class, you can easily transition into a traditional martial arts course (and we'll have a coupon for you if you decide to do so) or kick boxing class.
The class will be held from 7:15 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, Feb. 7 through March 13, at Annie's Om Towne Fitness, 14 W. Downer, Suite A (upstairs and to the right) in Aurora, IL.
The fee for the six-week class is $27.37, if you register in advance through Eventbrite. The fee is $35.00, if you choose to pay with cash or check the first day of class.
To pre-register visit:
Use promotion code fatsecret for 4.37 off the pre-registration price. (I was trying to make it an even number and it didn't work.)

How Often Do you weigh yourself?
I only do it once a week now. I'm at my goal and more concerned with maintaining than losing, so I don't think I have to watch it as closely as I did before.
I also skip weighing in during shark week if I remember. It's so depressing because I gain this mysterious 5-10 pounds that disappears the following week. I think, in the pursuit of fairness, men should gain (an lose again) a mysterious 5 lbs every month.

I haven't weighed myself since my surgery. So, even though it says I gained 7 pounds, this is my start.
