I was the same way, but I was at about 220 trying to shed down to 200. Im not overweight by any means, but I was going for the shredded look rather than the "big" look.
Right now, Im down to about 205. I lost 12 really quick, I got to 208 in about 2-3 weeks, but they always say the last 10 lbs are a bitch.
Problem is, when you starve yourself during the day, thats doing nothing but harming your metabolism. I'm sure you've heard this before, but you should be eating about 6-8 small meals a day. The fact that you've been feeling bloated could be due to salt, because sodium is a bitch and will do that to you. My best advice is to drink a shitload of water, and start eating your veggies. I would suggest to try to consume about a gallon of a water a day, and stock up on all the veggies you can. You may not like them, but the great thing about them is you can eat as many as you want, and if you're eating like brocolli or cauliflower, you're not consuming calories, while you will feel full.
See the thing is, I workout with a lot of people who have trouble staying motivated. It's a bitch and annoying when you're with these types of people because all they do is complain. You just have to find YOUR motivation.
Obviously you know this too, but cardio always helps.
One suggestion for not feeling so "bloated" would be this.
Usually in the am, my first meal will be something like a bowl of oatmeal, glass of low fat skim milk and maybe a banana.
When I have protein I usually wake up with a protein shake, and then probably have the oatmeal about an hour and a half later.
If you stay away from the salts and sugars a little more that should help your bloated feeling.
