    Morning All. A much happier me with 6.2 at 0800. Yay!
    @ianpspurs I too could never give up veg and am clinging on to the green ones come what may. If I end up on insulin because of veg rather than cake sobeit. I do find it hard that for some just stopping the starches is enough to maintain good BG. But this is living our own lives so lets march on (or hobble in my case!)
    Have a good day everyone, stay well, stay safe

    Good morning all.

    @Chronicle_Cat -- Congrats on your weight loss. Really well done.
    @ianpspurs -- Sorry to read you're feeling a bit down. Maybe, it is just the virus, you need to get out of your system. Alternatively, it might of course also be diet-related. Do you feel yourself craving certain foods? My mother always said that your body will tell you what it needs (which I still subscribe to within limits -- although I have to admit that it told me that I needed lots of refined carbs when I obviously didn't).

    Fasting blood sugars were 5.1 today.

    Have a fabulous day all and enjoy the golden October.

    5.1 Monday
    5.5 Tuesday
    6.4 today!

    It's been a challenging few days food wise. Celebrations for my daughter's 30th birthday. I have been good until last night. Family meal out. And I came up against this tempting little monkey! I gave in and had a piece. Left nothing on the plate! Disappeared like magic!

    Have a great day everyone.

    @Cumberland I assume that is a little low for you so hope taking appropriate action has raised it. @PenguinMum hope the hobbling clears up sooner rather than later. I have no problems avoiding starchy veg or ticking any number of boxes. @ziggy_w There is nothing I am craving I just know deep down this is not what wellness feels like. As I don't know anything better I will continue ticking boxes. Thanks for all the comments and support guys:) At least nothing bad is going on - just doesn't feel like wellness should #mysterygate

    Morning...an eventful start to my day...a text from my bank to advise me I am over the limit & if I do not pay money in before 14:30 they will charge me...I checked my account...I am in funds as I thought I would be...so I charged them for wasting my time...causing me anxiety...cutting me off during lengthy calls...finally on the third call after an hour of my valuable time they agreed £75 in compensation...apparently they have a systems error that has sent this message out to many customers...so the TSB have made a very expensive mistake (again)...woke to a 5.8

    21.6 this morning. It was my birthday yesterday and I may have eaten slightly too many carbs.

    This happened to me too last week. Went to bed on a 7.0 and woke up to a 3.2 the next day. It scared me as it was my 1st ever hypo. PS: Ive only been diagnosed 3 months ago

    Orson I have absolutely no sympathy for them at all...banks would not hesitate to charge us...that in my view needs to be reciprocal...I've had those messages before without any foundation for it...this morning they just peed me off...so it cost them & I hope all those other customers who received that text in error do likewise...that way they'll make sure it doesn't happen again.
