    I get that...but don't. Here's the certainty; you give up - it gets worse. Here's the possible alternative (the only one); hang in, keep trying, keep learning about what works for you personally, keep chatting - it may well, and probably will, improve (that's the only way it can). Way easier said than done...yup...but do-able for sure. Besides, I would like to know what you will post when it's under 7. Good luck.

    6.0 this morning, down from 6.7 yesterday morning. At the weekends I do intermittent fasting which helps. :)

    Thank you for the kind words Pleinster.

    9.7 this morning. No rhyme or reason that I can see but I'm not complaining!
