    Happy Birthday Ian, I hope your results exceed your expectations.
    5.6 for me today, not too surprised as i ate my own weight in peanuts yeasterday. I just stay munching until the whole bag is gone. Will stick with the home gym this week to access its effectiveness over the walks. Having dropped below 13 stone, i am in no great rush to loose weight. If it happens at a slower pace, thats fine. Resistance training may bear more fruit in-the long run. enjoy the rest of your day.

    Thank you so much for the birthday wishes it is really good to feel part of a community.
    Swimming lesson over and blood test done - now to end the fast. Initial numbers from test are good - weight 72.8kgs bmi 21.7; bp 122/80 which just after swimming is ok. BMI down from 22.7 on December 19 2017;, bp was 126/80 then. All of that will count for nothing unless the main aim of this is reflected in Hba1c but a nice start. Now for a few days of meat eating, maybe some wine but definitely a marmite and vine tomato sandwich with some bread from an artisanal baker with stalls on several Cambridgeshire markets. I have been eyeing that bread up for months :woot::inpain:

    Thank you @Jenniewren1958 I think I will settle for a good, not great, a1c as long as the cholesterol level and ratios are good. The weight, bmi and bp have come in ok so I just want to see all green lights on my dashboard rather than focus solely on one.
