Today is Day 71
Weight goal - 140 or lower
Actual weight - 141.2
Blood glucose goal - 81 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 95
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 started out good feasting yesterday with a nice breakfast, but had to grab lunch on the fly by stopping at Mariano's grocery store. I chose a couple of sections of Italian sausage from the hot bar and ate bites of it on the way home around 3 pm. I think it was tainted. By the time I got home, my stomach was upset and gassy. I had dinner, but could not finish it, and by the time I got in bed, I was really bloated and in a lot of pain. I got up and took Pepto Bismal and started feeling better an hour later. I got up this morning feeling sick and with higher weight and higher FBG. Not happy.
70 DAYS DOWN AND 21 DAYS TO GO
47 FEAST DAYS AND 24 FAST DAYS - FASTING 34% OF THE DAYS
12.5 POUNDS GONE AND 5.2 POUNDS TO GO
71% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 78% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 141.6
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 81
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 red 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.
