Unable to lose weight. In dire need to lose weight- Doctor’s Orders!!!
What Diablo said is correct, although you might have to stay below something like 1600 calories if you want to lose 10 kg in 4 months. I have lost a bit more than 11 kg the past 4 months, and I had to stay below 1700 calories, and I was way heavier than you which means I had a higher base metabolic rate.

In terms of type 2 diabetes, I don't believe in the low carb approach at all. Nothing I can write in a forum post will be able to ultimately convince you, but a whole foods plant based approach makes the most sense to me. The science is solid IMO. Go have a look at this and see for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLqINF26LSA

However, dropping weight will be key to your success, so go with whatever you can adhere to. Changing your food habits by 180 degrees while also restricting might set you up for failure.

Vegetarian Diet + Exercise
Hi Sparticus, no animal proteins here! I went vegan almost 2 years ago due to ethical reasons, but I've relied a lot on mock meats and cooked with added oil, etc.

About 4 months ago, I switched to a whole foods oriented diet. I've lost over 10 kg since then, and only recently started being more serious about the gym. What really helped me with not feeling hungry is consuming fiber-rich food (I average about 60 g of fiber per day).

Looking at your diet calendar, your caloric deficit seems to be very drastic. Be careful not to burn yourself out!

Exercise before food
I'd say depends on what you're doing. If you're doing cardio (walking, cycling, swimming, etc), it doesn't make much difference, although you might still feel less energetic if you're fasted. I'd say: plan to do it the way you're most likely to be actually doing it.

For strength training (lifting dumbells, using machines, etc), I'd advise against doing it fasted. You will not be able to train with the same intensity if your glycogen stores are empty, which will decrease the efficiency of your workout.
