Today is Day 53
Weight goal - below 143.7
Actual weight - 142.6 - NEW LOW
Blood glucose goal - below 79
Actual blood glucose - 70
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 had a decent day fasting yesterday. I decided to have only one cup of coffee sweetened with Stevia, one cup of beef broth with sea salt and six 8-oz. glasses of water evenly spaced throughout the day. I was bound and determined to get that water weight off! And I did, and then some, hopefully fat!
52 DAYS DOWN AND 39 DAYS TO GO
38 FEAST DAYS AND 15 FAST DAYS - FASTING 28% OF THE DAYS
11.4 POUNDS GONE AND 6.6 POUNDS TO GO
63% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 58% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 143.7 7-DAY AVERAGE BLOOD GLUCOSE - 79
I made a few charts to track my progress. The grey lines are my long term goals. The blue lines are my actual results. The orange lines are my 7-day average using a trailing stop. 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.

And just for fun, I always think that because I don't get more than a couple comments here and there that it means no one is reading. It is very motivational to me to know that there are a lot of people reading - according to my site meter, in the past week there have been around 1,900!
