    Hi Cumbs. You do very well to cope with all that ails you. Just goes to show that chasing a fab 4 or a fourunate 5 is not the prime goal for some. Are you still on your month off? :):)

    Hi Everyone,
    I hope your all doing as well as you expect to be doing, whilst dealing with this beast of a condition, we're all burdened with!!!

    Well, this morning at 07.40 hrs my BGL's were 8.4, which to others it's a touch high, but when you are doing what is right and your eating the right foods, plus exercising, then you can only expect the results you get, because your body can only work with the tools (Food) it receives, each day. So as long as you know 100% that your giving it your best shot, plus an honest effort then be happy, for the numbers you get, as your doing this for yourself and your future Health, no one else, so just keep doing exactly what you are doing and you'll receive the rewards you are looking for, (Good Health and Normal BGL's.) so keep it up as a good effort, eventually pays off, Ok!

    I am off yes
    Personally I’m happy to be in single figures
    Ideally I’d like to be between 5 minimum and 8.5 max

    Going under 5 means I can’t drive the car so 5+ is a must for me
