    I have crazy moments too with the carbs. I can control the carbs at home but on holiday; restaurants, parties it goes downhill. A bit concerned about the next Hba1c; I want to lower it.

    I know it's very difficult especially when eating so called " healthy carbs ". I know it's something I do need to get to grips with, I tend to be a whole or nothing sort of person whereas I do need to just stick to reducing my carb intake and not binging then being very strict .I too really want to have a lower Hba1c at my nxt review if only to say see want I can do :)

    7 at not quite 7 this morning. I would gladly have switched the clock and meter readings to see a 6.5 at 7.05.

    @LindsayJane is the Taunton show a horse show? Either way, I hope it isn't raining there.

    7.0 this morning after 3 days ill and not testing. I did have a white rioja last night before bed, that probably didn't help.

    There were horses - and alpacas - but it was for local producers, mainly. I spent way too much money on cheese and it didn't rain!

    I've started picking and leaving parts behind for the bin. It's been difficult to realise what's good for my system and what isn't. I'm getting there.
    Hv a try.

    Excellent fbg @Rachox. Are you only on small dose of metformin to get 4s or is this a regular occurance for you?
    How do you stop your GP from not stopping your metformin on perfect hba1c? Mine wouldn't give me a choice. In fact I'm going to hv to fight for them not to risk a stroke or heartattack when they want to reduce my bisoprolol and perindopril. They are quite decisive on these things. Well, mine are.
