    5.0 mmol this morning back in blood sugar heaven. The heatwaves are over (hopefully) for this year and my fasting blood sugar has improved almost immediately. Normally I tend to go high in the heat so winter is my favorite season for good blood sugar control :-0

    11.8:( Going the wrong way but sticking to the diet and feeling hungry. Sticking to diet although it is a challenge to find low carb recipes for veggies. Feeling somewhat disheartened plus I was very "wobbly" yesterday afternoon/evening.
