    :hilarious::hilarious::hilarious:


    And just to agree but in the opposite way..
    had my cheese/tom breakfast yesterday, kept busy so missed my window for dinner 7pm
    wasn't particularly hungry, so had halo/strawberries and cream later, instead...yum
    running low on strips so no testing..(usually fine)

    expecting a "good show, old boy" pat on the back from the meter ..been getting mid 5's of late
    .
    nope...so not having it..it gave me an admonishment with a
    " 6.2....and think yourself, lucky, it's not worse, sonny boy "

    :rolleyes:

    and as for the family, debs.....are you being racist ?

    Because if you, are,... letmetellyouwearentalllikethatlbutlovedthatskitwhenifirstsawitLoL...:watching:

    :D


    Have to agree @Krystyna23040
    does seem a very common thing.

    and at least you are aware what it is.

    Hugs for day ladies.
    and a Fist bump for Mr diabetes educator man...;)

    Btw..6 downloads..6 reviews ..one pretty poor..but can only see the 4 best ones..
    (very true to form, Only lets you know what it THINKS you SHOULD be told. :hilarious:......5 stars :bag:)

    6.3 this morning, that’s without any insulin since Friday morning. I only seem to be spiking about 1-1.5 with my shakes, and generally keeping a nice level line. I’m surprised that I don’t need my insulin so quickly, but I know I’ve got to stick with it for the duration to repair my body and come of insulin for normal food.

    Breakfast bloods

    After some comments about having 3 Rivita, cream cheese and smoked salmon for breakfast, it was the Rivita that was a concern, I promised to keep all informed on how my reduced Carb breakfast affected my Blood Sugar.

    Before stopping the Rivita my average readings were 5.5 before to 6.5. After

    The new findings of Dracula

    Date.
    14 Aug. Before 5.7 After 7.4 18 carbs grams with 3 Rivita the 7.4 is unusual
    15 Aug. Before 5.3 After 6.0 5 carbs grams
    16 Aug. Before 5.5 After 7.3 7 carbs grams my cold OR the biscuit I had at 20.30 last night)
    17 Aug. Before 5.6 After 6.2 2 carbs grams
    18 Aug Before 5.7 After 6.1 <2 carbs grams

    An afternoon of Quire and Band Rehearsals (Georgian and before any English Language Scholars pull me up on Quire it is with a Q, good scrabble word). I shall be wearing my Tricorn, my granddaughters think I look like a pirate or highwayman.:)

    Then this evening off to a Son et lumière,

    Morning.

    that score does SEEM to reflect my thinking that the body is somewhat behind the curve of what we eat sometimes.
    holding on to prev day food notes a little bit longer then expected.

    Liking the Highwayman, jibe from the grand kids..

    have a good un, MC

    I'm glad your daughter and her partner are moving down to y'all. I hope they will have good weather for the move tomorrow. Now I'm gonna go check out this Headspace that you mentioned -- I could use something like that! The KittenCat sends purrs to Dennis. ^. .^
