Your intake appears very good to lose weight. You must remember that when you are 58 years old your metabolism is very slow so portion sizes are extremely important. You might not snack between meals but you may be eating too much at each meal. Following the FODMAP diet is good for you and it appears that you have managed that alone. Do you get any bloating or diarrhoea on the diet you are following?
Do you consume any alcohol? Have you consulted a gastroenterologist to check your Irritable Bowel Syndrome and your fructose intolerance?
I would suggest you add fish to your diet as Omega3’s which are found in fish are very healthy and good for arthritis. You diet looks deficient in calcium which is a worry at this age when bone density tends to drop. You can eat lactose fee yoghurt and drink lactose free milk.
You should try and do some exercise to keep your joints lubricated. With arthritis you should still be moving. Water aerobics is excellent and it is offered at many centres. Tai Chi is gentle and good for joints and balance. Exercise is essential to maintain muscle tone and bone mass and to move your joints.
I suggest you consult an Accredited Practising Dietitian to have the quantities you are eating checked and to ensure you are getting all your nutrients.
