It's hard to tell from your diet calendar; it is kinda sparse. What are you doing eating fudge for breakfast? That can't be all you are eating.
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you'll find an excuse.

It is not rocket science - it is weight loss.
Eat less food.
Move lots.
Repeat this x lots.

I'm not sure if you've just forgotten to put some of your food in your calendar, but if you haven't forgotten and that's all you're eating, then you're for sure not eating enough!
Also, I agree with Loki...why are you eating fudge for breakfast? That should be one of the best meals of the day to keep you should have plenty of protein and fibre to keep you full longer. A breakfast of frosted flakes and whole milk is not the best choice either. You can go with cereal, but choose something with high fibre and not one of those sugary cereals. Put some fresh fruit in there (ie berries, bananas) to up your vitamins/nutrients. And use 1% or skim milk, not whole milk to limit your fat intake.
You need more vegetables in your can have meat but that shouldn't be the main part of your meal (most people have the idea that it should be).
I'm a vegetarian, but even I know that meat should not cover 3/4 of your plate (I'm not saying that's what you do).
I don't know how tall you are or what your minimum daily calories should be, but NO ONE should go below 1200 per day and even then you shouldn't eat that few calories for any length of time.
I try to eat a small meal every couple hours...english muffin with an egg and cheese for breakfast, and then maybe some veggies mid-morning, maybe a small bowl of soup for lunch, an apple or orange later in the afternoon, and then a small dinner.
I hope that helps a bit...

Hi there Catlady. Congratulations on the progress you have made so far!

I came across this website - it's a great nutrition resource so I thought I would pass it along to you. Looking at your diary, I see that you are eating much refined sugar and complex carbohydrates. Not all carbs are the same - many are empty calories and do you no good at all. Please don't misunderstand - carbohydrates are important, but it's important to know the "good" and "bad" carbs. The website page below will help you understand the difference. This may help you with possible answers to your other two posts also.

The article is all about those little "plateau enabling" complex carbohydrates; (Grains [wheat, rice, barley, oats], potatoes, corn, and beans are all very starchy foods. Grains are made into bread, cereal and pasta, as well as crackers, biscuits, cookies, cakes, pie crust, and anything else made with flour):
