    I take great pains to straighten my hair gennepher...any possibility it might go wavy is unacceptable (its uncontrollable when it's curly/wavy) and it must be restrained...tied back it is and it's all your fault:D:D:D.

    It was with diet only. I found that 20g of carbs is the maximum that my body can cope with. Less would probably be better but I do enjoy the 20g of carbs so am more likely to stick to it long term info stay around that level.

    I did - by chance find out recently that by adding vitamin C my numbers are lower. There is a link to the study on this. But it is the keto diet that is what controls my numbers.

    I hardly ever dry my hair. It’s not that easy to do with only one working arm and hand do I don’t usually bother

    After an up and down month - which has coincided with having my kitchen renovated. I’m still wobbling with my weight and my sugar readings. No excuses now my kitchen is complete. 3.7 this morning though... new week new start.

    Good morning from the dark and dangerous north.
    The government has realised that our 10th annual family CF fund raising bank holiday gathering next year clashes with the 75th anniversary of VE Day so, in a fit of jealousy, has moved the bank holiday from it’s sentinel position of Monday back to Friday (8th May 2020).
    It’s bad enough with those strangely garbed folk in Vatican City pointing at the heavens and shifting Easter round, now the clowns of Whitehall are fiddling about with yet more stuff. Oh for a bit of peace and stability. Bring on the empty horses.

    The wonder wheel of shirking and playing hard to get issued a begrudged 4.8 this morning. The graph line had been bouncing about in the zone of 3 since about 4am but decided to shift up a bit so as not to scare me. Maybe I should eat more eggs and roasted cauliflower.

    Have a great day if you can, time for a koffy.

    Warning this posting will contain topics of an offensive nature to those of a sensitive nature and no tolerance of the absurd, please,please read no further, in fact do the sensible thing and block my postings on your news feed.

    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen, today is national be nice to a neighbour day hmmmm.
    Again a well behaved 5.5 escaped from my meter shouting shepherd's pie at me, now did that little blighter know me and me's had nicked the shepherd's dinner?

    Well folks I can recommend don't give yourself a shot of insulin before you go and practice plinky plonky ( keyboard ie electronic piano ) the c#minor scale sounds just like a miner ( pun intended ) singing in the pit head showers.

    Have a great day, woodworking on children's garden toy's. Arranging a motorbike test ride, gardening and finally sorting out a drug problem at the chemists, may the deities of your choice help the chemist.

    I expect Wispa will scoff the lot and then it’s belly dragging for the rest of the day.
    Don’t eat the bread rolls - they are made on Mars and contain mind control drugs.

    6.4 this morning. It’s moving in the right direction at least.
    On the road again. Lots of trucks.

    Oh yes I remember seeing discussion re vit C now. I think it is all down to your determination though and I’m full of admiration for what you’ve achieved.

    My meter came back from its fives course and handed me a 5.8 this morning.

    My hair would not frizz if you paid it.

    Frustrating with all the noise and debris Goacher but so worthwhile when it's finished.

    Your weekend sounded fabulous in every way. I am interested in Vit C helping out with low BG. I am now taking a slow release Vit C daily but while I was on holiday I had a couple of wedges of orange with breakfast about one quarter of a large orange and it certainly didnt raise my BG as I expected it to do.

    I started taking vitamin C recently - just because I felt it might be helpful for general health when I noticed lower blood sugars - especially fbs in the morning. Not a huge difference but enough to wonder what was happening.

    I had also changed 2 other things so in order to rule out the vitamin C I did a search and came across this link on this website https://www.diabetes.co.uk/news/201...ucose-levels-in-type-2-diabetes-95348957.html.

    So it does look as though the vitamin C does make a difference - in conjunction with low carb.

    Thanks for the link Krystyna its very interesting. Clearly the pills are more concentrated and fructose free. I used to love oranges.

    @PenguinMum it must have been a very emotional parting yesterday evening, good idea to immediately book your Aug weekend in Dublin. You’re right that the world is a smaller place now so it’ll be a doddle to pop over and see him.

    Last night I had my bedtime snack a couple of hours later than usual -- and my FBG this morning was the lowest it's been in nearly a week, and about as low as it was when I was doing LCHF. I don't eat to a plan, I just try to keep the carbs to a moderate level. (I don't always succeed.)
