Vital Statistics, Monday, March 7, 2011

Weight:  288.0 (weekly loss of 2.4 pounds) Follow my weekly weight loss progress.
Blood pressure:  116/80
Average Fasting Blood Glucose:  114

Great progress all the way around.  My blood pressure has fallen from an alarming 140/98 the first time my wife checked it to the reading yesterday of 116/80 and I have dropped 13.6 pounds, all in three weeks.  For a "normal" person, a fasting blood glucose level should be somewhere between 75 and 90, so I still have a ways to go.  But not too bad, given that I have reduced, then stopped altogether, my insulin injections.


  1. Wow, I'm impressed. I was wondering if your current blood glucose level higher than it was on the insulin shots--as in, has it recently been in the "normal" level due to the insulin?

  2. Today is the first day, post insulin. The reading was up a bit this morning, but I will see what happens tomorrow, before I get worried. Each morning after I reduced the number of units, the fasting blood sugar was high, but it came down the next day. If it is too high, I will go back on a small dose of the insulin for a while, until I lose another 15 pounds or so.
