Today is Day 65
Weight goal - 141.2 or lower
Actual weight - 143.2
Blood glucose goal - 82 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 85
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.
I had such a nice time eating yesterday! I really enjoyed it, knowing that I would probably have to fast today. I've been thinking that I would rather eat every other day with gusto and without counting and/or weighing anything than eat like a bird every day and having to micro manage every bite of good that goes into my mouth. And, sure enough, today I am fasting again, as you can see by my numbers above.
64 DAYS DOWN AND 27 DAYS TO GO
44 FEAST DAYS AND 21 FAST DAYS - FASTING 32% OF THE DAYS
10.8 POUNDS GONE AND 7.2 POUNDS TO GO
60% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 71% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 142.1
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 80
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.
