    6 this morning. I need to lose a little bit more weight too - here goes!

    EDIT: I've ordered a 2nd test meter just to be certain - my readings are all a little higher than expected....

    Good Morning,

    5.7 this morning, to think that on the 21st March last year I recorded 19.8.

    Tracey, thinking of you.

    Fantastic progress @peony50 and hugs @Traceymac23. Mine was 5.7 no mitigating circumstances just system failure currently.
