Ht. 5'4", Start: 248.5 lb, Today: 219.5 lb (BMI: 38), Goal: 170 lb - I lost 5 more pounds! 29 down, 50 to go and I am feeling great! I was really worried about this weigh in so I am oober ecstatic about 5 pounds. So what I am experiencing in my journey right now is being tired of food. It will be dinner time and I will be hungry but I just don't want anything...I am tired of chicken and turkey, I am not a fan of fish. It's kind of funny that I am bored and don't know what to do with food and yet I am a culinary student. But if anyone has simply tasty recipes or knows where to get some let me know please. Well thats all from me, hope everyone is doing well.

Congrats on the 5 pound loss! That's fantastic! :) You've obviously worked really hard to get where you are & should be VERY pleased with yourself!
As for boring foods...just mix it up! Instead of having chicken breast & turkey for every meal, allow yourself to have some beef or pork or whatever meat you like. Just eat them once or twice a week in small portions instead and have a lot of tasty veggies - also, I like to add hot sauce or different spices for a unique taste to the same foods (as a chef yourself - I bet you can make chicken taste very different!). Another idea is to have quinoa for's delicious & you can make it into a tasty warm salad (add onion, grape tomatoes, spinich) & even throw in a few slices of chicken breast if you so please. I often treat quinoa like I would couscous. Hope those suggestions give you some ideas! :)
