    good morning all :)

    3.9 today

    perhaps it's the cold weather? If you're going out today take care.

    Hey buddy, isn't 3.9 a bit on the low side? What is a safe level?

    morning @Greg1957 , my fasting is usually between 4 and 5 nowadays (I've lost a lot of excess weight), and meters have an allowed error so if my test is below 4.0 I usually err on the side of caution and have a few berries for a quick carb boost and some cheese for slow release. The preferred range is 4 -7 for me as I don't take any diabetes medication, http://www.diabetes.co.uk/diabetes_care/blood-sugar-level-ranges.html

    I think that you have done brilliantly, like you I hate the obese word, and hope within another couple of weeks to be merely overweight, today is my first 24 hour fast day, I have been doing 18/6 until now. This mornings numbers were my lowest yet, and I look forward to having a 6 first thing. I still take metformin, should I stop this now? Stopped gliclizide on day 1. I was just worried for you that 3.9 could hurt you.

    4.3 - tried a Lidl roll after dinner yesterday. Not bad, so although not missing bread I will put on my recommendation list.
