    Morning all 4.8 for me.
    @Adm_Mad you will get there, like @Starfish18 says, it takes a bit of time. It’s been over a year for me and I finally have got to the point where I see occasional 4s in the morning. Make sure you keep track of your scores ( many use the MySugr app) so you can look back in a few weeks and see what an improvement you’ve made.

    @DJC3 Yep I use the MyFitnessPal app for calories, macros and weight, and MySugr for glucose tracking.
