    So I had a pretty carby weekend + had a bit more carbs on Monday and it’s been pretty hard to maintain my blood sugars since (I know it’s only Wednesday, but still). When I was super low-carb my range was in the 4s and 5s and rarely saw anything above 6.7.

    FBG on Tuesday: 7.7
    FBG today: 5.9

    Just checked my blood sugar after a bit of a chilly walk and it’s at 6.9.

    Has anyone else experienced higher than avg BGs than your normal DAYS after having carbs?

    I feel like I messed everything up.. any feedback is welcome!!!

    You have not messed anything up your body just wasn't prepared to deal with the extra carbs and will take time to settle back down. Please be patient and remember stressing is bad for bg levels.
