My project started April 27, 2019 when I decided to radically change my diet with medical supervision toward the goal of reversing type 2 diabetes. I have sustained focus for three months. It's time for an evaluation. Yesterday I had lab work done. This coming week I should have my results, so I can see how my biomarkers have changed with this experiment. 

In the meantime, some thoughts on the journey so far.

  • Making sleep a top priority has been a game changer.
  • Paying attention to your body's signals is a skill worth learning.
  • The body is incredibly resilient and can bounce back from a lot of punishment.
  • The world doesn't end if I don't eat something for a few hours.
  • It's not easy to be disciplined and still operate in the world (especially socially)
  • Certain aspects have gotten easier, but I am not at the level of unconsciously competent yet.
  • Success lies in maintaining the right mindset, which requires daily attention.
  • From the start I believed that I can achieve my goal, and my belief grows stronger every day.
  • The lab results are one moment in time. No doubt some numbers will be good and others not so good. The important thing is that I know I am healthier than I was three months ago. I'm moving in the right direction. For fantasy sports fans, my team is green arrow pointing up.

    @brandonwilson - Congratulations Brandon!! You forgot one point. (You are motivating others like Keni to join this project and improve their health!!)

    You are extremely determined and your sleep consistency is mind boggling. I am sure you are already reaping the benefits of your hard work and older Brandon will have a luxurious long life because of it.

    I love this - "Paying attention to your body's signals is a skill worth learning."

    Keep writing!

    @brandonwilson - ↗️ -- NOT the end of the world if you don't eat is good news -- else I'd rally the trips and ensure we had some keto delivery every few hours. (Just in case )

      @brianball Hopefully not keto delivery from the 20+% of drivers who taste the food. Talk about a bad taste in my mouth when I read that article!

      @juliasaxena Thank you! It's not easy, but that's true for the things that are worth it.
