Should be concerned

I lost 91 pounds during last two years and it appears that I can maintain it. I was able to lose weight relatively easy. I changed what and how I eat. First year I did not exercise and I observed some muscle loss. Stared running a year ago, and currently run 3 miles 3 times a week.
Since I practically eat the same food each day, I would like to ask you if there is anything I should be concerned about if I continue eating the same way for the rest of my life. I also would like to know if there are any changes to what I eat that you would recommend. I am 50 years old.
My breakfast: blueberries, blackberries, or apple, 2 slices of dry, 100% whole-grain toasted bread with one slice of 99% fat free turkey breast on each, 1 fresh tomato, hot tea (no milk, no sugar), 1 multivitamin, and 1 capsule of Omega 3
My snack: coffee with milk and no sugar, apples
My lunch: grilled skinless chicken breast, lots of romaine lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers and green or red paper. All vegetables fresh and uncooked. Once a week all vegetables are replaced by cooked spinach. Hot tea (no milk, no sugar). Twice a week I have fish instead of chicken breast.
My dinner: grilled skinless chicken breast, romaine lettuce, tomatoes. All vegetables fresh and uncooked, hot tea (no milk, no sugar), 1 apple.
