    Turn that tap off :stop: rain. At least no floods here. 5.9 this morning, after a couple of days of retail therapy walking round the shops weight lifting bags.... back to normal on the treadmill.

    "Yuk, wet and nasty, wish I was still on holiday. 5.9 this morning" after a rather bad day yesterday, way too much time at the bar, airport food and 02.00 hrs arrival back home.

    Otherwise, I couldn't put it better than britishpub did, so i just knicked it ;)

    FBG 5.0 this morning, happy with the reading but feeling a bit 'meh' overall. Think this is because we've passed the halfway point of the summer holidays and the return to work is approaching :meh:

    7.8 for me this morning, it is slowly coming down but is always the highest reading of the day (unless I eat something ridiculous).

    Bad idea!

    5.2 this am after some slightly high readings yesterday evening. Went to Harvester for dinner and stuck with mainly low carb choices but it's the sauces and sticky salad dressings that get me. Worst reading was 8.9 at one hour, which isn't too scary - must keep things in perspective. Wonder what it used to go up to when I had an ice cream sundae or choc fudge cake for pud :oops:

    5.5 this morning and I lost another 4lb in weight this week. I'm going to treat myself to my favourite brand of chocolate, Godiva a box of 36 individually wrapped pieces of 72% dark chocolate, to carry a piece around just takes the edge off of when you see something you really want but can't have in the likes of tea/ coffee shop etc.
