    Thank you, @jjraak .

    It was on another thread, about clothing donations, and something I posted about the stigma that can be attached to "shopping" for donated clothes was completely misinterpreted (and judged). I know about the stigma because I have been one of the people benefiting from donated clothes, and from food pantries, and the judgement really hit a sore spot.

    I went back and deleted my post in this thread but a copy is there should anyone want to read it, and I'm glad. I just took a break, and stopped thinking about the whole issue, and decided I'm not going to let one critic spoil the camaraderie and good advice I enjoy on this BB.

    Cheers.

    5.6 at 04:50 that's low for me as it's ussualy 6.4.
    Started taking Casein (slow relised protein)before bed for muscle building purposes. It appiers that it lowers bs overnight as there is some insulin constant in blood I guess. Not sure if that's a good thing though2

    a slow day food wise, just picking at cheeses, onion/toms..nothing too much.

    But scared myself when testing before dinner...13 5 :woot::woot::woot:

    until i realised i'd prepped the food and not washed before testing...:hilarious::hilarious:

    Anyway, food was good.

    the down side of T2D, is i lost the pasta's/breads/rice i used to enjoy,
    but i've embraced this new world of food..(and admittedly i have to WIKI most of what i am eating at the moment..;))
    But tonight was MEANT to be Butternut squash spaghetti..(ended up more like mash...but i still liked it)
    sainsburys Meatballs in a loyd grossman tom/chilli sauce//(6.9g carbs per 100g)
    laid it out on a bed of lettuce, done some onion.tomato type salsa..same for missus but she had salmon fillet.

    Lovely...scored a well done from missus...early night tonight..;)..( No chance..:D )

    But bloods were good after..so a win regardless...another keeper on the dinner front.:happy:
    ( got plenty leftovers so will try bubble N squeak the squash..see how that goes.)


    off to bed with a pleasing 6.3
    Goodnight all.

    4.9! That’s unusual for me. We’ll see if it lasts.
