For losing weight, it's ok to eat whatever you want as long as you stay in your calorie range and the food choice doesn't lead you to overeating (ie: leave you hungry again shortly after, make you crave more of the food and cause you to eat more even though you're not hungry).
I love peanut butter. I buy natural crunchy PB (free of trans fat). I don't believe in cutting the fat from it, fat helps with satiety and nuts are a healthy fat.
Here's the list of ingredients in regular fat reduced PB:
PEANUTS, CORN SYRUP SOLIDS, SUGAR, PEA PROTEIN, CONTAINS 2% OR LESS OF: SALT, ***FULLY HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OILS*** (RAPESEED AND SOYBEAN), MONO AND DIGLYCERIDES, MOLASSES, MAGNESIUM OXIDE, NIACINAMIDE, FERRIC ORTHOPHOSPHATE, ZINC OXIDE, COPPER SULFATE, FOLIC ACID, PYRIDOXINE HYDROCHLORIDE.
*** ie; trans fat
Here's the list of ingredients in natural (full fat peanut butter):
PEANUTS (some varieties add salt).
For jam, I use the no sugar/artificial sweetener-type but I rarely use it. You know what's really delicious and higher in fiber (helps with satiety), some whole strawberries, raspberries, banana or apples instead.
A whole grain bread fills you up nice. If you do open face, you'll save on calories.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
