    Good morning all. I had a fasting reading of 5.5 after a reading of 5.3 at bedtime last night.

    FBG 4.8 pleased with that. I stuck to one glass of wine for dessert last night whilst the rest of the family had Key Lime Cheesecake, so it's nice to be 'rewarded' with a low FBG this morning :angelic:;):smug:

    5.7 today, after answering 2 phone calls and a few other things, was probably at least 1 hour after my foot first touched the carpet. Don't think I've ever managed to test as soon as I've woken up.

    Morning All

    6.1 for me this bright, sunny morning. Bit disappointing after 4.8 before tea yesterday...

    Maybe the Lemon Meringue pie was a mistake.......

    6.7 this morning - I know it rises when fasting - but I did have a sneaky late night snack of strawberries and grapes last night - not sure if that had any effect - or whether my low reading the other day was a fluke - it is still very early days

    A slightly lower 8.0 for me this morning, I'm putting it down to stress and hormones ...... within 2 hours I'm back to my usual 4's and low 5's, so not overly concerned :rolleyes:

    Hi folks. Hope you're all having a nice Saturday. BG this morning was 5.6 after a topsy turvy night. Hasn't budged since according to my meter, even upon testing after breakfast. Happy with those numbers. To everyone who's feeling under the weather....take care & get well soon. Hello @Edgecop & @catmazdo....rather than derail the thread, I've sent you both a PM in response to your posts. Best wishes & good health everyone. X

    7.1 this morning (well, 9:30) after a bad night of tossing & turning. Post-breakfast was 7.3, so at least not a spike, but a lower FBG would be a better start!

    5.2 after a night out with a lot of good, grilled meat and one glass of red wine. Just after I poured in my second glass with sweeter wine, someone nicked it - good for me ;)
