Today is Day 89
Weight goal - 136.4 or lower
Actual weight - 137.6
Blood glucose goal - 76 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 77
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.
There's not much to report today. I was sick from whatever until around noon yesterday. Now I'm afraid to eat the leftover turkey!
I can't believe there are only three days left, including today. Day after tomorrow is my final measure and weigh-in, and I will be taking photos so I can show you my before and afters.
88 DAYS DOWN AND 3 DAYS TO GO
54 FEAST DAYS AND 35 FAST DAYS - FASTING 39% OF THE DAYS
16.4 POUNDS GONE AND 1.6 POUNDS TO GO
91% OF THE WAY TO MY GOAL AFTER 98% OF THE DAYS
7-DAY AVERAGE WEIGHT - 137.7
7-DAY AVERAGE FASTING BLOOD GLUCOSE - 73
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.
