While that is a pretty good strength workout, that's not going to help you lose weight. Strength workouts, while helping with weight loss, won't be the primary exercise you do to lose weight. You need to mix strength with cardio - whether that's during the workout or on a different day. I would strongly recommend including cardio into your gym routine, or spending a day outside of the gym doing cardio (running or biking for example) or participating in the gym classes they probably have? Zumba is a fan favourite, I would recommend it. But also Boxercise is a good class too, anything that is cardio-tastic! If you want to stick to your current routine, then include 15 minute bursts on the treadmill, stationary bike or cross trainer. But you also risk of spending so much time at the gym! I personally do cardio days and strength days separately.
As for your food intake - it's not enough! And you're also drinking shakes for dinner...that's not good! Shakes should be a post workout solution or a breakfast, but I wouldn't recommend drinking one just for your dinner. You are working your muscles but you are not helping muscle recovery because you're not eating enough real protein. You should focus your meals on chicken, turkey, eggs or fish. For dinner, half of your plate should be veggies, a quarter should be protein and the last quarter should be grains...kind of like this:
Also, water is your new best friend! I try to drink a pint of water every 3 hours and more if I workout. I hope this all helps. Your body is a fire; the food is your fuel and exercise is the air - too much of either one will burn out your fire and stall weight loss. Finding a balance is key, and it takes trial and error, but you'll get there.
