eating well to lose weight

I don't eat bad, I just could eat a little better.

I have a big event in about 2 months, and I'd like to drop about 10-15lbs by then if possible.

Has anyone figured out a diet that works well? I usually have time after work to cook a pretty good dinner, although some nights I work late and I have to pick something up.

In the mornings I'm usually out the door with either no breakfast or just a cup of coffee. I know I should probably eat something...are those healthier breakfast bars any good?

Lunch is usually with people from the office or something quick and affordable (which sometimes means fast food). When it is fast food though, I try to stick to a salad.

Dinner is usually something pretty quick, but I can give it more time. I'm thinking I should try to get a lot of fish in. I seem to eat a lot of pasta, just cause it's easy and it's always there...

I guess I'm just looking for a little input and to see how you lost a little weight in a quick amount of time.

As for exercise, I try, but it doesn't always get done. I belong to a gym (acutally I need to renew) and I usually end up starting the week there, but then meetings come up, night events, and by the end of the week I've only made it to the gym once or twice. As much as I hate it I'm thinking about running (at least around the block a few times) as often as possible, but I'm hoping eating right will knock a few pounds off in about 7 weeks.

Sorry if I've been rambling...Any suggestions?
