    A happy 4.9 at 8.30 a.m. Still trying to find the will to do more than the absolutely nothing I've achieved since getting up! Sooner or later I have to move or I'll meld into the sofa....

    good morning all :)

    4.4 today

    it was so windy here during the night, blew my bins over and was rattling everything for most of the night, nice and sunny and mild just now though :happy: so it looks like an early walk because the forecast is for heavy rain later.

    Stay positive! Plus you've had a lot of stress recently, which I doubt is helping. I also don't get the LD, mine was 7.1 yesterday, 6.4 today. Perhaps not as low as I'd like, but if I'm sticking to low carbs, it's not coming from 'junk' carbs.

    Thanks! The 'smart' scales have been a lot of help, ie I noticed my weight loss had slowed a little.. But fat is down, muscle up. Doesn't help with the BMI number, but that's a crude measure. May also explain why I picked the wrong time of year to do this and feeling the cold a bit more :)

    Don't feel sad! And keep eating sensibly! From my own results and from watching this thread, it happens. The trend is the important thing, ie keeping our BG in the 'safe' zone for as much as possible.

    Hello all. Blood sugars were 5.4 this morning. I agree with you, @geefull. When I have a lot of meat at night, my fasting blood sugars tend to be slightly higher.

    @Granny_grump_ So sorry to hear that you are not sleeping well, though totally understandable. Hope you have a wonderful vacation.

    @Olufisayo -- Welcome to the thread. Do you usually see higher blood sugars in the morning? If yes, what you are experiencing might be the dawn phenomenon. This means, your body releases various hormones, which raise blood sugars, to get you ready and moving. Personally, I observed high fasting levels (in a similar range to yours) for quite some time, even though my HbA1c was already in the normal range. So, if you keep working on this, your fasting levels should come down after a while.

    Also, welcome to the other newbies to this thread.

    good morning all :)

    4.6 today

    hmmf, It's not so easy tweaking my diet for maintainance, I managed to put on half a kilo this week :( , at least my fasting bg average stayed fairly similar to the last couple of weeks. Had a good walk yesterday with mum's little dog though :)

    All in all it's a work in progress ;)
