    6.2 this morning. Lowest for ages. I had cake and chocolate late last night. There's no rhyme nor reason to these readings lately. I was 9.4 yesterday with less carbs.

    5.6 again today :meh: I’m thinking that more food over Xmas has caught up with me. I was still low carb but around 60g/day rather than the 30-50g I usually aim for, particularly I have been eating more meat. I think this is putting my FBS up from the high 4s/low 5s I was getting pre Xmas. Back down to under 50g /day from tomorrow!

    Have a good one Jim.

    I did not make one to give up nicotine addiction, I smoked my last cigarette in the packet and said that's it no more. It will be 27 years this July coming since going cold turkey, no patches, chewy gum or vape bongs.

    My grand kids were not born when I gave up, but I know the looks from them though. They are all pretty good at getting money out of me. :D
