    The punishment is immediate, isn't it? But still not too bad. Will it take more than a day to go back down?

    I would gladly settle for returning to normal BG after just one day. Often it takes three days though.

    I noticed that when I thought my bg had gone back to normal after giving birth and a few weeks passing and I got my first 4.6mmol fasting. I celebrated and made pancakes for the kids. Boom 5.6 mmol the next day.

    Unfortunately it seems that every day there is some reason to celebrate. Sometimes its a bit of a struggle to keep on the straight and narrow path, at least for me. I just think of the alternatives and that jolts me back to reality [most times].
