Today is Day 61
Weight goal - 142 or lower
Actual weight - 142.2
Blood glucose goal - 84 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 83
Today is a Fast Day.
For me, that means that all I will have today is water, coffee, tea, or broth, all without caloric sweeteners or fat. 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.
As Maxwell Smart would say, "Missed it by that much!" I have feasted the past three days, so I'm not too upset. One thing I am pleased about is that, after a Feast Day, I gained less than a half pound, and my FBG only went up to 83. As you can see from my chart below, I normally bounce way up after a Feast Day. Progress!
60 DAYS DOWN AND 31 DAYS TO GO
42 FEAST DAYS AND 19 FAST DAYS - FASTING 31% OF THE DAYS
11.8 POUNDS GONE AND 6.2 POUNDS TO GO
66% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 67% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 142.7
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 82
I made a few charts to track my progress. The yellow lines are my long term goals. The blue lines are my actual results. The grey lines are my 7-day averages. 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.
