    6.1. My highest reading in weeks but I'm okay with that since I splurged and had sour keys candy last night, my first sugar candy in three months (since diagnosis). Back to salads! And a swim later.

    Good morning from chilly, soggy Toronto, Canada. :cat:

    It could also be WHICH supermarket: I have noticed a considerable difference between them. (Not all supermarkets are created equal!)

    @bassamaklan Green zone? You are definitely in the pink with that number. I, however, am suffering with 5.6 for not understanding what the letters S H E R R Y actually mean (sherry and mustard sauce with pheasant sounded great till I suddenly "cottoned on") :arghh:

    6.1 which is OK, but I don't seem to be getting closer to my hope of achieving 4.9 again.
