Overwhelmed!!!
The diet you choose should be based on your you and your lifestyle. If you don't like meat, a low carb diet might be more difficult. I do Weight Watchers and love it. I try to eat lower carb and focus on the lean protein, lean dairy, fruits and veggies. Some people think it's eating whatever you want as long as you stay within your points, but that is not correct. Counting calories might be the place to start. There are calorie calculators online (google). But use it as a guideline. You might start at 1500 a day for a week and see what happens. Focus on whole foods and plan a treat each day so you don't feel deprived. Portion control is key. Get a food scale, measuring cups and spoons. Getting some ziplock baggies and plastic containers can also help. If you work, get a cooler and bring everything you need for the day with you. Protein will keep you more satiated than any other food group so it's good to get some every few hours. Greek yogurt and fruit, cheese stick, veggies and hummus, protein bar, etc. As you lose weight, you need less calories to keep losing, so it's always better to start high and cut calories as you go. If you don't exercise and can, start. Activity really helps. Even slapping on a pedometer and aiming for 10,000 steps a day to start. There a lot's of great workout dvds you can do at home. Start slow and build up. Give yourself a big learning curve with diet and exercise. Get some fitness magazines and do some googling. Good luck!

Dieting + working out with no results, help
People who don't track tend to eat 30% more than they think they do. If you want to lose, you need to track what you are eating each and every day. You are most likely negating what you lose during the week on the weekends. Weight loss is mostly about our diets, but exercise does help. Your diet is pretty healthy, but it still comes back to calories in/calories burned.

not loosing weight
Lots of people don't lose their second weigh in. It doesn't mean anything is wrong. Maybe you had too much sodium last night and it's masking your loss. So many factors cause our bodies water weight to shift. Google "why the scale lies " for insight. Drink your water and keep going. Some weeks we owe the scale and some it owes us. Consistency is key.

Purchase equipment or gym?
There are tons of workout dvds out there. Check out Amazon.com or Collagevideo.com. You can also get some free off youtube or check your local library. A mat and some light hand weights and you do some strength training/circuit training at home. Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred is 25 minutes and will kick your butt in to shape. Get a pair of shoes and take your dog for a walk/run. There are so many different kinds out there that can help work your body hard. You don't actually need a gym or much equipment. Start out that way and keep looking.

Exercise Routines for Elliptical Trainers
When starting any exercise, it's good to work up to 30 minutes slowly. Once you raise your endurance and feel comfortable, you can start adding in more resistance or start with the programmed workouts. Check fitness sites (google) for some elliptical workouts. Fitness magazines also offer routines sometimes.
