    6.2 this morning. I was fasting yesterday til dinner and had salad. I'm fasting again until dinner tonight...

    Last reading in the 5s was 4 days ago (before my hedonistic treats!) and I'm expecting it to go down quicker as I'm doing 3 x 24 hour fasts in a row....

    Morning all

    My Codefree said 4.8 on this gorgeous Spanish morning.

    I find my 16 day rolling average is usually similar to my Hba1c but I don't worry to much about each individual reading, I watch the trends.

    Which, right now, I am happy with

    I feel like I want to be leaping around the room with joy - cannot as in an office full of people....... but delighted with reading and hoping I can maintain it.
