Today is Day 78
Weight goal - 138.6 or lower
Actual weight - 141
Blood glucose goal - 79 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.
According to my numbers, I was supposed to fast yesterday, but because it was a holiday, I decided to eat. I had eggs, cream cheese and butter and a BPC for breakfast, a Polish sausage and cole slaw for lunch, and corned beef, cabbage and carrots for dinner.
The thing that I am getting concerned about is my FBG on the days after I eat. It just does not want to come down, even into the 80s, increasingly more often. I am beginning to wonder if I am going to be able to eat every other day when the challenge is over and still maintain my low weight and low FBG.
I guess I won't be having any of the corned beef leftovers! I will also probably be fasting tomorrow, too.

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.
