Yes, I am planning on going jogging about 4 days a week and Zumba 1 day a week
Ok. Well one thing to note is that your body gets very good at conserving energy, so low/ moderate intensity like walkin, jogging or zumba will quickly become easier, at which point isn't making your body work as hard. It's good to keep pushing yourself with exercise intensity if you want to lose weight. High intensity exercise makes your body work hard for long after you've finished exercising, which is why resistance exercises and high intensity exercise like interval training is recommended.
Have you considered creating a blog? It's a great way to monitor your progress, keep track of your diet and also allow people to help you make any changes that might be beneficial on the way.

i usually do the various weight machines and free weights. i about about 2/3 sets of 8 reps. i usually find that i cant do anymore after about 45 minutes..is that bad do you think?
today i have eaten
-porridge (plain made with water)
-soup (around 200 cals)
-2 apples, 2 pears, banana
-200g of cottage cheese (170 cals)
-vegetable omellette (made with virtually no olive oil, 3 eggs, tomato, spinach, onion and mushrooms)
-3 nectarines/4 plums
i know i eat too much fruit, im trying to cut back. ive walked for around an hour today (pretty fast pace) and im planning to go on the cross trainer for an hour too. if i follow this regime for around 3 weeks should i see weight loss?
ok. i do eat a whole can of tuna probably 3 times a week in salads, and try to eat chicken breast and salmon on other days. will i be losing weight if i continue on this scheme? i dont weight myself as i dont trust the scales and theres too many fluctuations to account for.

11g protein per 100g oats
<1g per apple
1g per pear
1g per banana
50g may be a tad optimistic
11grams from fruit in total
+ the 5grams you say is in an egg (15grams total from 3 eggs)
+ 20grams you sya is in cheese.
that's 46grams (1 over the GDA) right there alone
+ 10grams from spinach
+ 25grams of protein per cup of outs in the porridge.
+ whatever protein is in onions mushrooms an unnamed soup and olive oil.
really lacking protein isn't it...
PS - there's 17grams of protein in 100grams of oats, not 11, clearly you have no idea about the nutritional value of foods...
