    Good morning all. 5.2 for me. Long walk and 2 meals put a hault to my ascending numbers. I wonder how much more i could squeeze out of it. Heavy fog here, probably stick to home gym. Have a good one.

    5.9 this morning, despite spending most of yesterday in the high 7's following a stressful meeting at work.

    A hugely disappointing 14.2 this morning and the galling thing is I can't explain it either! went to bed with 6 being the number, so I am flummoxed as to why. So just to monitor and adjust as needed today. The vagaries' of diabetes !!! unexplained highs and lows! just like life!!!

    Take care everyone.

    Hi all, its been about a year since I last visited this thread and it still feels a bit like a confessional....anyhow its really great to see so many people here with great numbers and others aspiring ...Me? I'm still somewhere in the middle ...today was 6.2 and most of the year has been close to that number.... I still eat low carb , and still walk 10k steps per day....I now do the shopping daily on my bike which I'm loving .... Best thought to all ...

    Hmm... 5.6 this morning. Not sure why I'm disappointed with that but I am. But watching Zverev vs Thiem later will cheer me up! Have a good Tuesday, all :)

    Morning all. 6.7 this morning at 8am. Had unpleasant hypo type symptoms directly before eating my evening meal yesterday. Tested just after eating and was 5.9 so not sure if I'd dropped below 4 or not. My fbs levels have recently been lower than usual for no apparent reason (still in the 6's) but I'm not complaining. Have a good day one and all.:)

    Good morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who have an IQ running in negative numbers like me welcome to my world.

    An 8.9 this morning for me, I needed a higher number this morning but not quite that high. My reason was I had to get my motorbike across Reading by 8:30am only 4 miles and only took an hour. Never mind the joys of motorcycling and diabetes.

    Have a good and entertaining day folks, I am off the leash and free till 2:00pm when the leash will be reattached.
