    Crossing fingers for your village gala @geefull that would be such a shame after so much good weather - maybe it will rain overnight instead we need the rain but lots of weekend events all over UK

    Just did my very first fasting blood glucose test - 6.1 this morning. Today is my first full day of tracking (got the meter last yesterday afternoon, did both before & after dinner. I'm also keeping a food diary.)

    Hi all.

    Late posting today and it’s snap @ianpspurs with 5.2 today, largely due to quantity of food in general,and protein in particular yesterday and late timing of dinner.

    Thunderstorms in progress bringing much relief over 30 degrees in my flat all day today.

    Morning all. 4.3 today.

    Next door’s cat has been popping in to see us in the evenings recently, we must have accidentally locked up with her still inside last night. This morning the newspaper on the doormat was wet and shredded - bless her!!!! IMG_5292.jpg

    Well well well, what a difference a day makes.... yesterday scorchio- today wild squally winds, driving rain and dramatically grey sky from our sea view room on Brighton sea front - the dramatic weather matches my dramatic bg 6.8 due to stopping all bp meds, and feeling very bloated, and a few extra carbs yesterday.

    Kicking off the weekend with a 6.6.
    No rhyme or reason as my dinner was a protein-fest at the cricket. I went to the hog roast stall and asked for pork without the roll because I can’t eat bread. Bless her, she gave me a tray full with a double portion. Now I don’t need double portions of anything but at stadium prices I wasn’t saying no. A great result for my dinner, a great result for Yorkshire and a great night out.

    I find too much protein raises my FBG the next day so could be that.

    Good Morning, Just got home from work, not eaten all night until 3:30am when temptation got the better of me and I popped out to the garage to buy a large breakfast roll. I have just tested myself and 3.6mmol did second test as I thought result was wrong but second result was 3.7mmol. I don't understand how I can be so low. Normally my fasting result is around 4.5mmol.
