Default I hit my first mini goal today...

I started on Jan 1st 2009 weighing 225 and as of this morning I weigh 200. I have lost 25 pounds and it feels so good. The best part about losing this weight is that for the first time in my life losing weight is easy. I eat every 3 hours and the weight is just coming off so easy. I now realize that atleast for me diets don't work. This was my first mini goal. Now I'm looking forward to my second mini goal of losing another 25 pounds and weighing 175 by May 1.

I know I should do some type of exercising but I haven't started that yet. I do plan to add exercise into my life but I'm just not ready to do that yet. I did get a wii fit but have only used it a couple times.
I don't eat in between meals. I literally eat 5 or 6 meals a day. It depends on how long I am awake.
As an example this is what I ate yesterday:
7 am Breakfast : 1 fried egg on toast, 1 cup OJ, 1 cup hot tea
10 am Lunch One : Chicken Salad on half a wheat soft taco with lots of lettuce, onions and peppers, cup of iced tea
1 pm Lunch Two: 1 cup milk, 1 Fiber Plus Chocolate Chip Bar, two handfulls of green grapes and some pumpkin seeds
4 pm Dinner One: Half hamburger on a white roll with lots of lettuce, onion, peppers, pickles and tomatoes and potato chips and Coke Zero
7 pm Dinner Two: exact repeat of dinner one
My husband just laughs at me whenever I eat a sandwich. I pile on so much veggies on my sandwich that it looks like a salad on my sandwich.
I had planned to make a fruit slush in the evening for a treat but honestly I was still full from dinner so I didn't.
I do drink between meals ( water, hot tea, iced tea etc)

Terrific!! Was your weight loss desire a New Years Resolution? (I guessing yes since you started 1-1-9! ) Congratulations! 100's of people joined 3FC the last week of December/first week of January, and a very small percentage of them are still here! WAY TO GO for beating the odds!!!!
