Low Energy and No Weight Loss Continues

I really tried last week. I biked to work, went to the gym and joined Strength and Conditioning class. People were jumping, music was blasting, it was hard to keep up. Lets face it, I am not 20 year old, not even 60 8^)
Eventually we used mats to do some exercises laying down. As soon as I lay down, I felt like falling asleep. I was suppose to be reinvigorated, but was not.
I started taking 5000 mcg B12 daily (instead of weekly), extra iron. I will stick with extra physical activities and give it two more weeks.
I'm also scared that I still did not develop healthy habits for eating three meals at scheduled times. I am OK in the morning, but later things are getting hectic and I just grab a piece of the protein bar when get hungry. That meal planning is my priority #2. I started to log all food I consumed and keep the total calories/protein current.
I feel like I am at the crossroads and old life is still hunting me. I am still 35 lbs away from my goal, traveled long distance, but have not arrived at the destination.

New Challenges

I am facing new challenges at this stage. I blame myself for few problems, like not sticking to the regularly scheduled only three meals per day. I eat little, but more often than three times, as hunger strikes. Before, in the recovery stage, it was not an issue, now I see it as BIG issue. I still do not spend enough time to concentrate on meals. I still do not spend enough time to exercise. So these will be corrections I have to take soon, starting today.
On the other hand I feel like something is wrong. I am very tired, I fall asleep in the evening, but wake up at 5AM. I feel like an old lady not able to lift a bag of groceries. (I'm exaggerating, at least I feel like not willing to lift that bag). My tests are OK, thyroid went back to normal, so I am puzzled. In a week or two I will see my doctor if this continues.
My weight is still a notch above 200lbs, and it is stuck there. I am waiting for a new down step.
I am waiting for new found energy fountain. I need to find it soon.
In the meantime I am increasing doses of Iron, B12, and D3.
