Successfully Completed the 30 days of The Whole 30

Here we are at the completion of the 30 days of living The Whole 30 lifestyle. One whole month of eating a low carb high nutrient diet and the results are amazing.

I dropped 15.8 lbs. overall and my morning glucose reading is at 88 mg/dl this morning.

My daily energy and level of mental concentration are in perfect balance and my overall thoughts are in harmony with the actions of each day. Yes, both mental clarity and feeling of physical well being are now a part of my daily life.

For a type II diabetic there is nothing worse than starting off your day knowing that your blood sugar is high. For me that early morning fasting blood test sets the tone for the day and if it is high all kinds of negative thoughts seem to come my way throughout the course of my day. I simply cannot allow this to happen as life itself is certainly a gift and each day that we are alive should be filled with joy and happiness.

So I have reached my goal and have to decide where do I go from here. Is there another level or bridge to cross or should I just be happy in this new land that I have discovered? I can move forward or just stay where I am at for a while. What I do know for sure is that I cannot move backwards to where I was before starting this program.

Progress seems to be the theme of all humans once we discover something that is in our best interests. We seem to want more and test how far we can take things. I too think this way and for now I believe that it is in my best interest to just get a good footing and hold fast for a little while.

Yes, for just the next 30 days I will hold fast and keep doing what I have been doing for the last 30 days. Who knows? I may end up burning a little more fat and even bring my blood sugar down a little bit more. I don’t know where it will take me, but what I do know that it can only bring more positive results. Who knows where I could possibly be a year from now if I simply stay the course? Hmmm

    Congratulations! You’ve earned your success!

  2. Are you still on Metformin? Or do you feel you don’t need it any more?

    • I am still taking a half dose but anticipate stopping in less than a months. Once I see my daily averages below 80 mg/dl on the morning fast I will talk with my doctor about it.

      • Thanks. Sounds like a good plan. I am happy it is working for you. I feel certain that ALL type 2 diabetics would be able to get off medication by eating like you have been eating.

  3. Congrats! That’s fantastic
