    Glad you got to paradise safely! Fingers crossed it's jet induced and you feel better in a couple of days.

    Hi twinny, @AndBreathe might be the jet lag and stress of travel and your blood sugar levels may resume normal levels once you've settled :) I've been trying to gain weight as I was 48-49 kilos the last time and now at 51 kilos after four days of introducing more carbs in my diet with porridge, rice and fruit which was a welcome treat....I'm happy if blood sugar is below 6.5 :) I may have had low carb fatigue for some time and not being able to stop the weight loss but will resume soon on the low carb after I've gained a bit more and felt more energy.

    6.3 Bedtime
    6.8 Fasting.

    Yay! Back in the 6's after ditching a different brand of Metformin. Another learning curve

    Some extra and unexpected stress yesterday after filling the car with unleaded fuel instead of diesel and having a 4 hour wait on the garage forecourt for the mechanic to come along and drain the tank, costing almost £300 in wasted fuel, the mechanic and a second full tank of the right fuel... :arghh: Just what I needed at the start of an already expensive weekend. Doh!

    Hitting the road early today to head for London and a 2 day amnesty from LCHF. As mother of the groom, I'm hosting a rehearsal champagne afternoon tea this afternoon before a full day of wedding celebrations tomorrow, and 2 days and nights of hotel food

    All things considered I'm happy with that 6.8 this morning...:)

    Have a good weekend everyone. Batten down the hatches and stay safe and warm.

    Over and Out

    Hope the wedding all goes well after that episode Diana - I think it's worse to put diesel in a petrol engine though.

    HI well I am trying to, its taking a bit of getting used to, I thought I was doing quite well but have slipped up on a few things. My fasting blood this morning is 5.1 so that is better than yesterday which was 6.1. Just had a breakfast of greek yoghurt (full fat) and strawberries thanks to the advice given to me from this site yesterday. It will be interesting to see what my 2hr post meal bloods are.

    5.3 this snowy, icy, freezing foggy morning ! !
    I didn't do a bedtime test as once again I had just got in from late shift and have found its not a true reading until I've relaxed a bit- by which time I was nodding off!!
    Hoping all this frozen snow melts pdq today!!

    Well, after a week of morning readings between 4.6 and 4.8 my body decides to throw out a 5.6 this morning :(
    Can't see I've done anything different and I only had 15g of carbs yesterday so I'll just put it down to one of those things and move on

    Could just be the meter - if it's within 10-15% of what you expect it's probably a statistical outlier. Did you retest?
