Today is Day 88
Weight goal - 136.6 or lower
Actual weight - 138.6
Blood glucose goal - 76 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 87
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 a nice Easter yesterday, with plenty of feasting. However, the turkey was fresh and, after it was roasted, I thought it tasted "off" and I was sick to my stomach for the rest of the night until bedtime. And this morning, I am still nauseated and belching. I'm happy to be fasting today!

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.
