    Yep! Just when you think you’ve got it sussed!
    All we can do is carry on the good fight and know it’d be a lot worse if I’d had chips for tea.
    (Still never giving up coffee and cream though)

    4.9 for me . @Diawara what did the East German judge give for style?:angelic: @DJC3 on #chipgate probably depends on the individual, number, how they were fried and, of course, as always, how much Brussels wanted to punish us.:angelic:

    Relax my good man. Your lab tests - certainly the last one - suggest you out perform your finger pricks whereas a few under perform theirs. Also, this isn't the old codefree shuffle is it?

    6.3 at 9am. Really happy I'm starting to see mine going down.
    My body's finaly stopped craving carbs. It's been difficult to cut them out, I won't lie. I wouldn't recommend going cold turkey like I did, but I've got through it and am still here!

    5 this moning.
    Been reveiwing my records and it seems that an increase in blood sugar levels as well as a sudden rise in blood pressure (into the red zone!) coincided with my DESMOND training day. Just saying...... dont know if there is a link but......maybe if they hadn't given us our most recent blood test results (mine were 4 months old and off the scale!). :cat:

    I’d rather have Brussels than chips these days, especially roast with chorizo.

    There are times and places for everything and, IMHO, sometimes only good chips will do
