    OT, my goal is to lose 15lbs. I'm not looking to bulk out and get cut. I'm interested in getting tone and leaning out.

    This is currently what I've been doing for the past 2 weeks.

    Breakfast:
    zero fat/low cal yogurt = 110 cals
    misc veggie = 60 cals
    coffee (cream, no sugar) = ? cals

    Snack:
    misc veggie = 60 cals

    Lunch
    Michellina low fat/sodium microwave meal = 250 - 300 cals
    water = 0 cals

    Snack
    misc veggie = 60 cals

    Dinner
    salad (low fat dressing) = 250 cal(?)
    OR I'll eat a pasta dinner or red meat at least twice a week w/ mixed vegetables = ? cal
    water = 0 cal

    Every morning when I wake up and before I go to bed I do 30 push-ups and 75 crunches. Nothing cardio at the moment.

    So with all said, am I going about this right? Remember I'm not looking to get massive. Since I've started 2 weeks ago I've gone down from 181lbs to 174lbs.

    You don't eat any protein and you don't eat enough. Plus, you don't lift. I can't wait to see you bone structure !

    You should eat much more protein (100 g would be a nice start) and lift to prevent lean body mass loss and up the calories because otherwise, your body's metabolism will just slow down and it'll eat lots of lean body mass because it's the part of your body that uses the most energy.

    Egg whites and whey protein are excellent protein sources. They're easy to get and the cheapest sources of protein, plus it'll be easier to control your caloric intake.
    You should add cardio/HIIT to keep the metabolism up and running too.

    Go buy some oatmeal (for breakfast) and tuna and cottage cheese for protein. Try to eat 6 small meals and/or snacks throughout the day. How tall are you?

    Wow, you really need to eat more. Less than 1000 calories a day is NOT healthy. Starvation is not the way to lose weight. If you're eating that little, your body will go into "starvation mode" and your metabolism will slow down big time. If you keep this up, there's no way you'll keep your weight off for very long. Not to mention the negative health consequences that go along with malnutrtition.

    Up your cals to at LEAST 2000-2500 to begin with, and maintain a caloric deficit by exercising, not starving yourself. Start lifting and doing cardio regularly. You will NOT get huge, don't even start to worry about that.
