    6.6 fasting

    6.4 two hours post breakfast + shorter walk than usual. I'm feeling really off colour and my ibs is playing up. Does feeling yucky affect sugar levels?

    4.8 "high" Bob :wink: That's an absolutely terrific fasting level. Mine was 7.1 which isn't good at all :(

    I resisted the fish & chips last night - had a piece of quiche instead :oops: , but despite all that was 5.8 at 08:00 today, so not too bad.

    Good idea, Grazer! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    4.9 at 08:30 this morning - no idea why, unless it was the MRI scan :shock: .

    Getting back in control today, so things should get a bit better from now on.

    5.9 fasting - much better than the last few days


    I'm realising how even low-level stress seems to affect my levels.

    5.6 at 07:00 yesterday;
    6:0 at 07:00 today.

    I've spent 2.5 days on site in a lovely old church, digging up bodies, so my meals are all over the place! Should be back on the straight-and-narrow tomorrow - I hope!
