How am I fooling myself? How could I have lost no weight in three weeks?

OK. I have no discipline, determination, or .... can't remember the other one. In three weeks, I have lost no weight what so ever. I limited my portions, ate less carbs (never bread), avoided processed food, cut out sugar, and switched to low fat milk. I am sure the scale started malfunctioning after I flooded the bathroom. That must be it.
I am feeling desperate enough to go back on the soup diet my mother in law told me about. Two years ago I lost 12 kg while on it. Soup consists of green beans, carrots, tomatoes, celery, onions and peppers. You are suppose to eat certain things on certain days (like a banana on the fourth day, and beef on the fifth day) but I just had it for lunch, and had normal dinner with my husband. And walked a lot. It still took me one year to loose 12 kg.
Now my body is sticking to 60kg. I use to be 52kg before the pregnancy. I want to be 52kg again. Or at most 55kg. I do not like the extra flab, and neither does my husband (he never said so, but I know).
The calorie counting is very tedious. And it borders on obsessive behavior. Not good for me to venture onto the borders of obsession.
So how now brown cow?
I hate that soup!!! and it gives me an eczema type rash.
I know exercise will help, but with agoraphobia, it makes it very stressful. And, I really dislike aerobics. Yoga is good.
I have not had my Omega drink today, and I feel slightly depressed - maybe the broken scale has something to to with my feelings of despondency.
'Tomorrow' seems to be the day of choice to start a diet, next to 'Monday'. So, this coming day, I will have both at my disposal, to join thousands of dieters out there. Maybe it I try to tap into the collective dieting meme, I will do better, but then again, most ppl, including me, are not very good at that specific meme. I feel like swearing.
OK, what was good these past few days? I managed to wean myself off sugar in my coffee, and managed to switch to low fat milk. That must count for something. Especially the sugar.
Candida overgrowth seems much improved. I have been taking Tissue Salts every night at bed time, and I must say, my tongue has never looked this pink and pretty in the mornings.
Even though I have not lost weight, my body feels tighter, less flabby for some reason. And I have more energy. I think it has something to to with my egg drink in the mornings. I use to never eat breakfast. I simply am not hungry in the mornings, and I do not like porridge or cereals (since I was a baby I would not eat anything porridgy). Cooking up a breakfast makes me feel queezy. So, egg yolk, oil and citrus juice suits me just fine.
I will continue with my egg drink in the mornings, and start cutting out all complex carbohydrates (potatoes, sweet potatoes, rice, pasta, etc).
Maybe I should have a look at food combining again. I have done very well on it in the past. OK. So.
Start Yoga again
Concentrate on eating fats and proteins and avoiding starch.
If I must have carbohydrates, have it separate from proteins
Stop drinking wine.
Count calories to stay under 1300
Spring clean the house and one hour work in the garden every day - that should up my exercise level
Drink more water.
Good luck to myself.
