Keep trying new things---new recipes, new workouts. Read books on nutrition and fitness. I had to learn that I'm responsible for my own motivation and it's fun!

It looks like you have made a lot of progress already. I would say give yourself a reward and have a meal or day in which you don't count calories.
I ate tilapia for about 3 months straight and I used sites like allrecipes.com to find various ways to prepare it. I never got tired of it because I found numerous interesting recipes(lemon parmesan tilapia is my favorite).

I have a tendency to get bored with my food choices to and once I started looking at the recipes I gained some new excitement.

I love Spark Recipes! And you get 3 points a day for making one. emoticon I am making a spinach and feta scramble for breakfast this morning and I can't wait to try it.

Also, healthy eating is not limited to green vegetables and lean meats. I choose to eat a rainbow, which includes a hug variety of tasty fruits and vegetables. I like to make green smoothies. My favorite includes spinach, a cup of frozen mixed berries and a cup of cider. Delicious. I also allow a treat like cookies and a candy bar on occasion.

You're confusing nourishment with entertainment. Get your entertainment from the TV or a book or spending time with a friend. Get your nutrition from food.

There are 10 types of people in the world: those who understand binary, and those who don't.

There are so many ideas out there!!! Don't give up! I agree with the other replies : try some new veggies or some lean meats. How about cold cuts once in a while; but not all the time, coz they're full of sodium.

So many foods....if you're burnt out on cooking, try eating Smart Ones, Lean Cuisine or Healthy Choice meals for a week or two. No measuring, weighing, etc. Maybe you just need a break from "Thinking about what you are going to eat/prepare".

Great advice, Bunnykicks. I think people get hung up on stripping food down to the lowest possible calories and then get stuck on skinless chicken breasts, for example, when there's so much more that can be enjoyed if one just changes one's mindset.

Maybe you could plan your meals over a two week period, with lots of variety. There are so many delicious options in a healthy diet! Learn to 'gourmet' cook your food in a healthy way. There's no need to be bored!

No matter how slow you go, you are STILL lapping everybody on the couch.

I would suggest adding some good carbs into your food choices as well as fruit smoothies etc.

Eat anything you want. This is "new lifestyle" food, not "diet" food.

Go to a greengrocer or the produce section of your supermarket - and buy some veggies that you normally wouldn't buy. Get on the internet and hunt down some new recipe ideas for old standby ingredients. Experiment with a new cuisine. Tweak a family-favorite recipe to be more healthful.Green veggies getting too repetitive - try a new colour, this is a great time of year for squash, beets, turnips... Sick of boneless skinless chicken breasts? Get chicken thighs. Go crazy and leave the skin on - and then just eat one. Or skip the chicken and broil a couple of little lamb chops, or grill up a small piece of good steak. Adjusting portion sizes allows you to eat more calorie-dense foods once in a while. Think outside the circular plate with a portion of lean meat, a portion of veg, and a portion of potatoes - and make a big pot of soup or stew or curry. The possibilities are endless!

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
