    nasty 6.5 this morning. I suspect a combo of too much protein at dinner and that special lady time ;-)

    4.1 for me today. That's well within my personal range.

    Lots to do today and already too much time spent on here this morning.

    Play nicely boys and girls. :)

    5.3 back to normal, the odd 4s that I get are when I have had alcohol the night before.

    went to bed on 9, woke up on 9, but hubby woke me up moaning at 1.30 this morning he hurt his back on holiday - so told him to shut up and go back to sleep or go downstairs if he couldnt sleep - so its his fault, bet my liver was confused.

    However sugars seem to be stabling out again tooth infection must have gone. My first operation is next thursday and as long as it stays under 13 on the finger prick thing i'll be ok. i have to test and then they test when i get to the hospital.

    5,5 this morning.

    I forgot my monitor at the office so not really a when waking up reading.

    Definitely a fasting reading though as I have had nothing to it for 12 hours so as to give a blood sample for analysis.

    I also did my usual 5km walk this morning before taking this reading so that may have affected the result.

    Not too concerned about it though 5,5 is not bad at all, although I've bettered it recently.

    More concerned about a1c and lipid counts I am waiting for and even these I just intend to use as benchmark for comparison purposes with the next ones, as I only really started looking after my diet about three weeks ago.

    Still feels like I am waiting for my a level results all over again though.

    Spot on 5 this morning - I like that thank you! Don't like the feeling that my back isn't as happy as yesterday though, maybe it was a false sense of security yesterday! :mad:

    .......I've read somewhere that Cinnamon supplements might be of help. I take mine with the last meal of the day.
