    @DJC3 Sorry to hear abut your continued leg pain. I appreciate your concern - personally I think I am too much of a wooss with myself. A bit in the go hard or go home mould:banghead:

    @ianpspurs I truly empathise. Eating fish and helped me for a while, now like you, I'm looking for something more than just water. Your numbers really are golden, give yourself a hug, not a woooooooooooooooooooos!!
    Probably @johnpol your BG would like to stay at home and relax, work related number perhaps, it'll be better tomorrow.
    @Terrytiddy congratulations on a lovely result and @DJC3 thanks and hope you're feeling better. It's a 2 day break tagged onto a work assignment but I'm not complaining about the work, the break, or madam's numbers. It's the first time I've been away on my own since T1D so I was a little worried

    Thanks @SueJB and it sounds as if Izmir is agreeing with you. I do really wonder just how adaptive one's body is meaning one approach only is doomed to diminishing returns, I on't know about you but I am starting to realise that In need to understand my body much better and adapt my approach accordingly on a more regular basis. Take care and thanks again for the kind words.

    @ianpspurs Izmir is lovely and normal with no tourists and a delight with lovely rose wine which was an unexpected treat but the food is so tempting. I do think though that knowing your body's reaction to food, exercise, stress which certainly comes in all forms, is a must. I also think that it's tempting to make a change when the first change didn't appear to work. Knee jerk reaction perhaps? You are doing so well, tread a little more lightly................................... and that's me talking to me as well, I have the same reaction to pooh numbers

    6.1 :) Night was much improved, especially in the 1am-6pm period where I was in range with no corrections needed. Slowly getting the basal back on track!

    Morning all. 4.5 today. Amazed as totally over ate yesterday. My penance for that is a distinct feeling of nausea this morning.

    @SueJB loving your avatar. Is it a pic you took in Izmir? I love Islamic art and architecture.

    Was gonna suggest 10 mins of brisk walking- on the spot if needed- just immediately before bed Ianp, you never know it might help.

    Way to go with resistance of temptation- I’m proud of you. I’d have had a real Italian tiramisu in a heartbeat. You’re a star

    Well good morning fbg posse, some good early morning numbers from u guys today and I’m a bit happier with my 5.6- it’s so pleasing to be back in the 5’s. Drive to Luton for a weight clinic. Cannot remember what I weighed last time- hope I’ve lost some. I stopped taking diuretic in between last apt and my weight loss just stopped- I even put in a few pounds ( groan) but this morning I may be back on track to the weight I was at when I stopped taking them. Have a marvellous day dahhhlliiings. X
