    Morning Mark! Well done and welcome!! Same here- lovely support and information on here, only three weeks two days in for me and I have learnt so much here from lovely people, learnt about lchf and loving it, no real info or support from gp's so before I was here had a few days in despair- now I'm on top of it and getting there!
    This morning at waking at 7am I was 5.8 - not in work till 2pm today so snoozed till 8.45 and then I was 6.1, guess my liver expecting food by then as all week I've eaten at 7.30am

  8. I woke up screaming with a cramp in my leg this morning. Thought any reading would be skewed so gave it a miss.

    Ouch!

    For me it's been upper back tension, knots and headaches when it wake up. So far in the last 3 weeks I haven't experienced any. My upper back and neck is noticeably looser during this last week. I assume there is a direct connection to that and my fasting BS levels

    Do you get cramp very often? I take magnesium because mine used to be awful. Went within a few days of supplementing x

  11. I only had it this morning. I woke up the whole house lol. Just been reading another thread you were on. Suggestions include lack of magnesium, potassium and vitamin d. Will check this out.

    @Marko723 hope you get sorted soon.

    4.0 for me this morning, at 04:30, up nice and early to sail at first light. It's been a lovely sail, with some frisky winds part of the time, but we're now in one of my all time favourite places.

    Mines was 6.5 when I went to bed last night. It is 7.1 this morning. This is confusing. Can I ask about headaches. I've seen them mentioned. I get them a lot these days. I even got my eyes retested. Is this a diabetic thing.

    4.1 for me this morning, so in range for me.

    We have just agreed to have a day of doing precisely nothing today. We were both absolutely shattered last night and were so pleased our meal was delicious when it arrived. We ate, then slept like the innocent.

    So, today will be a bit of swimming or snorkelling, followed by a visit to the Boulangerie, which is mandatory here, as it is so good and I can even see it from where we are anchored. Mr Breathe will have a half stick with his cheese, at lunch, and then we have both been debating a treat. The last several times we have been here there have been chocolate Eclairs with my name on them, which I elected to ignore. I may not do that today, although, right now,I wouldn't be too bothered. That said, it is still 07:40 here, so a little early to be dreaming of cakes. Well, for normal people that it. :happy:

    We'll doubtless take in the World Cup final, this afternoon, then kick back before a dawn start again tomorrow morning.
