    6.9 today.

    Considering the amount of bread and chocolate I ate yesterday I got away with it a bit. Need to get back to my normal diet today.

    Hi again, you are definitely now in a good place for support and to make new (virtual) friends with people who all have something in common.
    Look around and take things at a slow pace to start with, ask questions and share your concerns, there are lots of lovely people here who will be more than willing to help, support and motivate you.
