    6.6 for me, looking out the front window it looks driech and glum but looking out the back it's glorious, think I'll go out the back door for my waddle and walk backwards, heading for glory, waddling free.

    Certainly is and all those who say they have it sorted are either fools or knaves. You are just fine testing and reflecting on *** it all means.

    Don't worry peeps, I've spotted the flaw in my plan, to go waddling along with hope and bewilderment in my heart as I head away from my goal is all too familiar, ahem, I'll get my coat. Smile peeps and the world thinks your up to summat.

    Shouldn't really retell it but reminds me of the tale about a simple soul in my village. The brightest and best put a banger (lighted) in his bike seat and told him to ride like fury away from it. He duly obliged and was scared whatsitless when it exploded.:arghh:

    Thank you.
    I am finding it all a little confusing at times.
    But really I am just trying to get into consistently eating low carb

    Best wishes for that. Low Carb is a very sliding scale so finding the level at which you can properly function is always difficult. Takes a while

    $89.70 wow, that's pricey.
    I self fund my own strips.
    I buy my strips on eBay. In order to take advantage of a bargain whenever any comes up, I have 6 different meters
