Actually a bit under 174. Another fasting day so far. I'm finding this diet/fasting/ketosis thing rather enjoyable. It's pretty cool to just lay in bed watching TV thinking about the old body having to use the fat just laying there. My fat stomach is pretty well all gone, I've got q couple of big dimples instead. But 14 more pounds are coming off so there's still fat somewhere, there better be or I'm in trouble. I rode the bike yesterday and today ( 11 miles) and walked Maggie both days. I found another in store with a sit down blood pressure machine and it gave me a higher reading than what i got here at home but I rode the bike 4 miles home so it could be higher or lower depending on a lot of variable. I'm doing half the beta blocker trying to taper off those. Beta blockers you don't just stop taking! Rebound effect and dangerous if we do. Still no angina showing up and that's great. The store BP machine put me into the stage 1 hypertension by ONE mm on the systolic reading . Heart rate which is important with the beta blockers was 88 that's good enough at this point.
For me at the present time eating later in the day, then 1, 2 ,3 days and eating later on the 3rd day, then do it all again, seems to be working. When I near the 160 lb goal I'll have to start making some changes, permanent forever changes so I can hopefully say 6 months and year and 5, 10 years from now I've been able to maintain my weight . I'm not even sure why I decided when I did to lose the final 46 lbs. Getting up and down when hooking up computer cables I know was one of them. Something that sticks in my mind is I bought some t-shirts and by mistake I got long ones that you have to tuck in. That didn't work with my belly hanging out. So I bought some more and.......... yes, made the same mistake. So now I had a supply of those things to last me a life time and the only way I could wear them was to lose that weight. Seems ridiculous but that might have been the final deciding factor. I can wear them now, tucked in. There are a lot of other reasons also, staying mobile as long as possible also comes to mind and being able to do the things I like to do.
I really like the tracking thing on this website. The graph works great.
A big Thank You to the Fastday people for making this possible and thanks for the support from all of you reading this.
