Well, Day 5 of the fast has come and gone! I am now well into Day 6 and going strong.
I will say, I had times today when I was quite hungry, but I was able to make it through without eating anything.
Probably my biggest problem today was muscle pain in my legs. It was actually worse today than yesterday. I did make it through though, and I even went out and did some walking. I had a meeting at a restaurant with a new friend, and I walked up there, only about a 10-minute walk each way. As I said, the meeting was in a restaurant, and the food did not bother me at all.
My blood sugar today was stable in the 70s and 80s. I just checked it a few minutes ago and it was 82, so things appear good. I feel fine, no hypoglycemia. I am very happy about this.
My blood pressure was a bit higher today. Still good, but for the past few days it had been too low. I did decide to use one of my blood pressure medications today, just to be safe. Keeping my blood pressure low is important for my heart health, and I want to protect my heart, so I did it.
274.0 – Lost 0.6 pounds.
Since beginning the fast I have lost 7.6 pounds.
Less than 5 Days left!
I can already smell the end of this fast, and I am excited to make it through the 10 days! On Day 10 I will be seeing my Endocrinologist and I am excited to see him. I am sure he will be shocked at my blood sugar levels, they are so low! It will be interesting to see his reaction to the fact that I am off of Insulin now too.
Everything is going well! I remain excited about the fast, and I feel that I am learning from it. Learning about myself and my body. It is a nice thing!
