Today is Day 81
Weight goal - 138 or lower
Actual weight - 139.4
Blood glucose goal - 78 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 75
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 you can see by my numbers above, my FBG allows me to eat, but my weight does not, so I am fasting again today.
I have a small confession to make. Yesterday, my grandkids and I made an Easter centerpiece for my dinette table using peeps and malted milk ball robin eggs. I ate one of the little eggs. Bad me! And it didn't even taste good!
80 DAYS DOWN AND 11 DAYS TO GO
51 FEAST DAYS AND 30 FAST DAYS - FASTING 37% OF THE DAYS
14.6 POUNDS GONE AND 3.4 POUNDS TO GO
81% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 89% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 139.8
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 82
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.
