    When i started i was in the 20s!!! After 2 weeks of diet lchf got it below 10. I am now in the 6s (but thats because i have been naughty!) Dont be disheartened, there will be ups and downs, there will be dissapointment (especially at yourself) but pick yourself up, the people here REALLY do help and encourage soooo much more than most gps and even family sometimes (i read your wife is gp so i hope she will be a good support and helper). I have been able to get my bgl in remission without meds after 4 months! You can do it but you have to believe in yourself and be strong wgich is so much easier with the support of these fantastic and friendly people. Thanks all of you. :happy:

    5.8 today after a lovely evening at a friends house. Pleased - but also delighted for her as she made such an effect to do LCHF food that was super tasty :)

    I got 6.8 today. Out for a boozy night on Friday, then TGI Fridays yesterday with dessert (that incidentally was disappointing so wasn't worth it!) then today I am off for waffles and ice cream....then that's it for birthday celebrations x
