Today is Day 91 - LAST DAY!
Weight goal - 136.2 or lower
Actual weight - 138
Blood glucose goal - 75 or lower
Actual blood glucose - 86
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.
Last day! Yesterday I ate lunch with my family and then I had a few morsels of other stuff later in the day. Today, because it is my last day and I want to finish strong, I am water fasting. No broth, no coffee or tea and no Stevia. I have my timer set for one hour, and I will be drinking 8 oz. of water each hour until bedtime, with my first being at 7 am this morning.
In order to totally win the challenge, my weight needs to be 136 or lower in the morning, and my FBG needs to be 75 or lower.
Yesterday, I gained 1.8 pounds. To win tomorrow, I need to lose 2 pounds before tomorrow morning's final weigh-in. I've done it before and I'm hoping I will do it again.
Even if I don't hit 136 pounds and 75 FBG, I will consider it close enough to a win to call this challenge a success.

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.
