If you are dieting to lose weight your probably going to make a mistake. The reason most people are over weight is their erg and craving for food. What caused that erg/craving is the question. Most time it is the body requesting nourishment so what you are eating is not giving the body what it needs. First check your digestion system are you having any problems that you know about - acid reflux - stomach pain - constipation or diarrhea if any of these things means you are not getting the nourishment out of what you are eating. Second frying food only adds trans fats to your diet some mineral deficiencies cause a disease called pica which is an erg to eat things. Once your body gets what it needs your apatite /ergs/cravings will go away and losing weight will be a natural change.

DavyKOTWF will become famous soon enough

You're off to a great start. Check out chronometer dot com . It will track the nutrients and calories you're getting. That daily meal plan seems to be around 1000 calories? A bit too low maybe? 1200 calories is the lowest a woman should do perhaps. You're not making up some calories by still drinking beer are you? If so, perhaps for now, at least cut it down to only 1 beer.
Coffee is okay.
Losing weight is 80% diet and 20% exercise. So good to do both, but yep, the way you eat is the more important.
Might do a colon cleanse too. Check Amzn for 10 day gentle colon cleanse.
You might also check out the Vegan Diet then the Seagan Diet. The Seagan is the Vegan diet with salmon and other good fish being okay.
If you're cooking/frying anything, ditch all the oils for now, and use coconut oil instead, or at least olive oil.
Then might check out doing a 3 day juice fast. Google it. This will RESET your cravings. I used to drink a diet soda a day and 2 drinks a day...after a couple of 3 day juice fasts, I no longer drink either/any and don't miss them a bit.
Then google, if you've still read this far , 'John Rose Juicing youtube' and also
'Angela Stokes youtube juicing' Lot of great vids to motivate.
Course you could read Jack Lalanne's Live Young Forever. VERY motivating! And that's 99% of all this for the first few months.
Six months to a year from now, nobody will recognize you and you'll be running around like a spring chicken!
Check back after 1 month and let us know how it's going. If any questions, feel free.
