Today is a Feast Day!
For me, that means a ketogenic diet - high fat, moderate protein and very low carb. Each day, I will weigh in, check my fasting blood glucose, find out if I will feast or fast that day, update my chart and post it here on the big blog. I'm posting it to motivate myself not to give up, and if I think that anyone is looking at this, it will help to keep me accountable.
I fasted yesterday and somehow managed to lose 4 pounds! I know I've been retaining water, so I'm sure a lot of that was water weight. I'm looking forward to eating today.
Oh, and I put aside my size 12 jeans and I'm now wearing my size 10. I wonder how long it will be before I fit into my size 8? And there is that one pair of size 6 in my closet...

I made a few charts to track my progress. The orange lines are my goals. The blue lines are my actual results. The last chart is a little heat map to show at a glance how often I have actually had to fast to achieve the results I am after.
