    I was having an ok day yesterday until my dinner readings
    B: 1 x soya and linseed bread/ 2 boiled eggs/ coffee and cream 6.4 to 6.9 (happy)
    L: 5 x Ryvita crackers/ yoghurt & mint salmon tuna spreadable/ couple of grapes and a yellow plum 5.7 to 7.9 ( could have avoided the plum perhaps, actually could have had less crackers as well)!!
    D: couscous/prawns/pak choi/ 2 squares of Lindt dark 70% chocolate 5.0 to 9.0 (not sure what happened here, as I have had this dinner several times before and only had a 1 mmol rise) it must be the chocolate, as I was trying it for the first time, as heard people raving about it. The thing is, I have had on on one occasion 10 maltesers and it didn't do much to my BS.. Weird

    Well I need to lose weight and after my mc last September which they think I had diabetes then as I was due to do the fasting bloods which I didn't do as it was after the mc. Am determined to be able to conceive again after I've lost some more weight. Am so scared having diabetes I want to beat it, as I have a phobia of any type needles so it's fairly stressful for me. So get into a healthy diet hopefully I can do it.

    Sorry to hear you went through this and i wish you all the luck just focus on becoming well and the rest hopefully will follow. It seems like you are off to a great start. I am hoping the drs can start supporting me with my fertility from my next hba1c in april so im trying hard to change it around and become healthy first and then restart trying as you are. Its helping me stay on track x

    Or like you have it with cream, I've brought raspberries today. I'm not over keen but I thought with some yoghurt or cream I will have them for breakfast tomorrow. I love Greek salad, your giving me lots of ideas. Thank you. :)

    B: orange & cinnamon ricotta cheese cake without the cake, blueberries, cream
    L: another poor choice of school lunch. Ended up with odd sausage in tomato sauce combo (made to have with pasta) with very salty salad leaves. Didn't eat very much. Wasn't pleasant:dead:
    D: diced chicken and mushrooms in cream, garlic and tarragon sauce topped with cauliflower mash and grated cheese. :hungry:
