5.5 for me have a good day everyone
6.2 this morning after a shock 7.3 last night.
Good morning everyone form an excitingly tempestuous thus even more dark and dangerous north.
The wonder wheel of recuperation from the aftermath of the TT’s visit delivered a kindly 4.9 to compensate me for thinking that 0525 was really 0700.
A dinner of salad with mackerel last night very nearly included a nice juicy slice of left thumb which got itself out of position when holding a tomato. I stopped slicing when I realized that such a succulent addition to the meal would have tipped the protein load over the limits. Can you run your thumb under the cold tap whilst at the same time dancing a jig? Britains Got Talent here we come.
Have a great day if you can.
Full and overcast here in the capital.
One observation someone else made resonated with me, yesterday, may be of some use to others..
It's not about being in charge of fasting rather it's about listening to hunger.
Hunger is like a child - sometimes it's just grizzling and you can ignore it, sometimes it's really upset and you shouldn't ignore it.
The problem with carbs is you can get into a relationship where you've got an anxious/whiny child that just won't quit
And just quickly, here is a thought provoking post, that doesn't seem to appear on the "Recent Posts" page.
Morning all. I woke to a 7.9 this morning which is bloody good for me.
I was a little scared going to bed last night I hit 6.6 (this low carb malarkey seems to be having an affect) Part of me wanted to have a slice of toast, but I decided on getting a care giver to wake me up at 2am to see if I was dropping, but the whole night was nearly a smooth line on my libre, no lower than 6 no higher than 8.
8.8 this morning i been on iron tabs for the last few days but they set off my IBS so stopped them yesterday weird thing I noted my levels were absolutely normal while on the Iron tablets
Funny, because of how you write it up
Many hug, because I bet that stung.... And it ruins any meal if your throbbing with pain while holding the knife and fork.
Hey @Fndwheelie .
Great u found yourself on this part of the forum.
Fantastic to see the great effects LC is giving you.
Marvelous work so far.
Morning All. 6.1 this fine morning. Wokeup early with bad hayfever, really hope it isnt a cold because that will prevent my eye injection happening on Wed. Have taken antihistamin and keeping everything crossed. Lots of vacuuming required today since I did a laundry marathon yesterday. Also a trip to Sainsbury for milk and gin
Bet any one of you can improve on my Monday plan.
@Bildad hurray for no migraine sleep. @gennepher good news best not to ponder the whys of the higher numbers. @trick60 hope your day gets better. @Bubbsie this week is going to be very hot so am not looking forward to watering duty, poor plants!
Anyway have the best Monday you can everyone. Stay well, stay safe.
I have to admit I only found this part of the forum because of the post highlighting it doesn’t show in the ‘recent posts’. I like the fact it’s full on chat. It’s amazing the LC because any readings below 10 were an achievement, now I can be in the green for hours on end. (I know readings of 8-9 are not brilliant in the whole scheme of things, but I will take what I can get.)
Hugs that all is okay for Wednesday and it goes well.
Hi and welcome to our friendly corner where we all try our best with our individual targets and have a laugh or commiserate and support each other. Hope you enjoy the banter. Great start btw.
Ouch,ouch! I hope it isnt too bad and you recover quickly. I dont like cuts on fingers, horrid and makes you clumsy with plasters on. Do they still call them plasters?
Yeah, I also find some posts I've been interested in don't appear on there either.
And as for the scores..
As much as we are a group, we are all still on our own individual journeys, going by slightly different methods and speeds, but there to support each other however we can.
So yeah, seeing other scores can seem disheartening...(I used to envy the 4 pointers, but that's not somewhere I can go happily... So I got over my envy and am happy with what I can do having the desired effect for ME.)
And yours is definitely working for you.
Anywhere below where you were is a step forward for each of us.
Lower is the New High...
Nice smooth line - no nasty, scary numbers -and you have great set of baseline readings to move forward with.
For me, the decision now would be to decide what to do next - stick with what you are currently doing or working at lowering that 6-8 line down a bit, and then a bit more.
I don't fare well in the sun PM...I am so pale it burns me quite badly I do my best to avoid it...plant watering is a chore but I love sitting here looking out at the plants & flowers while sipping my coffee so I will make the effort...fingers crossed it is just a bit of hay fever & good luck with the injections.
I hit funny cos of the shopping list,
But a proper hug was meant for the worry of wednesday.
Hope whatever it is passes real quick.
(Btw, love how thoughtful you are with every one, )
Definitely Ouch!, ouch!, and definitely plasters - plural - probably not that deep - a nice thumb slice results in more blood than a years worth of finger pricking. Working on my bike today so best wear a latex glove on my left hand and pretend that I am Madonna (other single glove users available).
@dunelm i think I need to get settled first, todays To-Do list involves speaking to my diabetic nurse, I’ve kinda been half committed to this LCHF plan over the weekend, but I can definitely see the difference. But didn’t want to go 100% without talking to the nurse.
5.7 this morning. Dogs walked at 6am - although I don't actually think the really hot weather starts until tomorrow.
Walk was before breakfast - which we don't normally do. So I couldn't wait to test BS on return. I stopped doggy walking before breakfast when I was on insulin because I would get a really dramatic rise in BS if I walked before eating in the morning.
BS after the walk 5.9 - so no dramatic rise at all, which means that my liver has released just enough glucose to cover the walk. So well done liver.
I suspect (no I know) that my liver (like Dennis @DJC3)i s capable of exceptionally good behaviour at times but then can be reallynaughty at other times.
When I typed the last sentence the thought went through my head that my older Labrador is just like that - although his way of being naughty is being stubborn.
As the thought went through my head my kindle fire predictive text suggested stubborn. Can my kindle fire read my mind - now that is a bit scary.
