It’s Friday again and as usual it’s time to weigh-in.
We’re nearing the end of the Salad Fad of the Month and I’m a little disappointed to report that it didn’t really work. At this point I’m not surprised by that. I had hoped for a better outcome, but by mid-month it was pretty clear that wasn’t to be. I won’t offer any excuses for why it hasn’t worked other than the simple reality that eating a salad for lunch everyday isn’t sufficient if your other choices throughout the day aren’t also intended to support the endeavor.
Honestly, I did feel somewhat better on the days (most days) that I ate salads for lunch and it’s certainly a good idea to continue to include them as a regular part of a lifestyle of healthy nutrition, but as a whole strategy for losing weight, clearly it’s not enough.
This last week, I’ve been sick with a cold and a lingering cough that doesn’t want to pass. I’ve felt pretty bad and haven’t really had the motivation and the energy to do much of anything productive. This week, I haven’t had salad at all and have had some other things that certainly don’t contribute to weight loss. With that in mind, it’s almost shocking actually that I weighed in this week at 300 pounds, again. Once again, the good news is that I have not gained weight this week which given my general laziness and poor dietary choices could easily have happened.
At any rate, I’ll continue with the Salads for Lunch Fad for the rest of the month and begin my next Physical Activity Fad of the Month on the first. I’m still mulling over my choices but will make the decision prior to the first (obviously) and be sure to make the announcement so my legion of readers can follow along and see how I progress!
