    This morning:
    Blood Glucose 6.8 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones 0.2 mmol / L

    Before bed:
    Blood Glucose 5.3 mmol / L
    Blood Ketones 0.6 mmol / L

    Disappointed as I managed to keep carbs to just 5g yesterday!

    So it went to 6.1 after breakfast, and further down to 5.5 two hours after a substantial lunch...
    Oh and Ketostik was 0.0 this morning :)

    Morning folks, and a happy Sunday to you all. An acceptable 5.0 for me today. Looks like it's gonna be a lovely day in Newcastle. There's a pretty sunrise going on out there. Wonder if it'll last. Wherever you are today, and whatever you're getting up to, may your Sunday be a fun, relaxing one. Good health to us all. X

    Morning All!
    Back to my usual FBG of 5.7 after a surprisingly low 4.5 around 11.30 pm yesterday night, lowest since being diagnosed.
    My weight shows 115.7 Kg, which means only 100 gr / 0.2 lbs to achieve a first 10 kg loss, a major achievement step since end of May, as I was carrying this weight (and more...) for over 10 years. I'll have to think of something to celebrate ;-)
    Brum as usual, "looking for the summer..."
    Have a good Sunday :-D

    Maybe because we're wearing autumn clothes at end of July?

    First class achievement @MosheBenYehuda. I bet you look & feel a whole lot better. Good luck with your future weight loss targets.
