Blood glucose goal - 79 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 83
Today is a Special 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.
Today is St. Patrick's Day, and although I slightly missed my goals, I am eating. Corned beef and cabbage tonight! I will probably have to fast two days in a row after this to get back to goal.
76 DAYS DOWN AND 15 DAYS TO GO
50 FEAST DAYS AND 27 FAST DAYS - FASTING 35% OF THE DAYS
14.6 POUNDS GONE AND 3.4 POUNDS TO GO
81% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 85% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 140.2
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 87
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. Click on any chart or photo to enlarge it.
