    Hi all, been a silent observer here for awhile and joined the forum to share something.

    This morning I received a 4.9 reading at 08:20. For comparison, 3 weeks ago I had my highest ever morning fasted reading of 16.1.

    After being diagnosed 4 years ago I never had the discipline to change. But a combination of worsening symptoms and seeing how well people were doing on this forum gave me the inspiration I needed and I'm never going back to my old ways.

    I've got a long way to go, but just wanted to share and say thank you.
