Unhappy Concerned I look awful

Hi everyone,
Been a while since I posted on here but after taking a good look in the mirror I thought it was time I seeked some help and advice.
I started training some months ago along with a drastic change n diet to lose fat as I was very heavy.I was 260 - 280lbs with no muscle just fat and after dieting and excercising for approx 18 months I have dropped my body weight down to 190lbs and have lost 8" from my waist which I am happy with.
I am 6 foot 3" and I am 39 years old.
I train 5 days a week as follows :

Monday - 30 mins cardio + 30 mins Legs
Tuesday - 45 mins cardio + 1 hour compound lifting
Wednesday - 30 mins cardio + 30 Mins Triceps and lats
Thursday - 45 mins cardio + 1 Hour Biceps ,triceps + various upper body.
Friday - 30 mins cardio + 30 mins legs
Sat + Sun - 1 hour each day on ABS
(this is a rough guide and I sometimes change but you get the idea)

My diet is roughly as follows :

Breakfast - Home made shake
Mid morning - Banana and Nuts
Lunch - wholewheat pasta, Tuna in oil,Wholewheat bread
Pre workout - Home made shake
Post workout - Home made shake
Dinner - Wholewheat pasta, grilled fish, giant salad, Grilled mushrooms, fat free yoghurt.
Before bed - Home made shake.

My home made shakes are as follows :

Breakfast - Oats,Banana,olive oil,Egg,Powdered milk,yoghurt and water
Pre workout - Oats,banana,Yoghurt,Powdered milk and water
Post workout - Pineapple,Semolina,ginger,apple,water
Before bed - Semolina,Oats,Banana,Egg,Powdered milk,Vanilla,Water

This is just an example to give you some idea.

Now the problem is I am happy I have lost the weightbut from all the wrong places. You can see all my ribs in between my nipple area, Mr arms and legs are really skinny and has made me weak, I really cant lift much at all.
My butt has pretty much dissapeared, but my tummy and chest are really flabby so I just dont know what I am doing wrong.

If you need any more info please let me know, I am hoping someone can help me get things the right way round and start to see some progression for all my hard work as its really depressing to do all this hard work for nothing.

many thanks guys....Tim

To maintain muscle mass when cutting, you really need to have an elevated protein intake. For guys, the stomach/love handle areas are the last place that we typically lose fat.

The routine you're doing is pretty messed up also. It doesn't look like there is any rhyme or reason to the resistance training. Resistance training is good. Yours just isn't going to be very effective with that layout.

List your macronutrient breakdown by calories or grams (pro/carbs/fat).

Why don't you tell him your reasoning for NOT being a vegetarian?

i was just curious why.....not judging so jumpy today mr. eric.

but a good reason would be more complete proteins available...but he has fish in there...so why not other animals?

I say one little thing and I'm jumpy

It's just that as a former vegetarian I know that to be a super irritating question.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

I LIKE it!

No, it was stomach problems that caused me to get away from it mostly. But it got way to hard to keep my weight up, etc. and my stomach was better. I got super into the whole thing though...I used to be an all or nothing kind of guy. So I didn't even eat fish, for instance. But I never went completely vegan.

So you still had eggs and such ?

I can see how it would be hard to keep your weight up . I've never done the no meat thing and don't think I could live without eating it. But I know some that do.
