    Morning everyone! I resurfaced half an hour ago. 5.4 this morning. Happy with that! Mind you, I did stay true to the course, I ate a whole duck to my self, 5 year old vintage cheddar, broccoli and brussels and consumed shed loads of red whine before and after dinner. after that, I crashed on the sate and after that I woke up this morning in my bed! Definitely No booze today! All the very best wishes to all! Theo.

    8.0 this morning, how has that come about I wonder...:angelic:

    Being one of life’s optimists I’m taking from that that the actions I take through the year - exercise and carbs less than 100g - are now confirmed as WORKING!

    Mine too. I've found that my newer Accu-chek Guide consistently reads a bit higher than the older Performa. My local pharmacy gave me the guide for free so I took it.

    6.2 after only 2 hours of sleep. Feel like death warmed up and not in the mood for the hairdresser’s non-stop chatter. If I could cancel I would, but I can’t!
