    Being relaxed is good for BG so a little treat every now and again is no bad thing.

    Isn’t it just. I went from XL to M last year in 5 months. And then i ordered a sports top and the supplier sent me a small by mistake. I thought I may as well try it on - it’s a bit figure hugging but for training it’s great. Made my day.

    6.4 this morning, thrilled to bits with that. It's the sofa gym, I know it! Putting the books into the shelves very kindly assembled for me by Mr P. Hope that everyone is having a good weekend, weather is brightening up a bit, so I think I will head out for a little walk in a while.

    4.5 for me this morning.

    @Goacher55 your homemade veg curry sounds lovely, they are the best. Rice or rice flour is a thing of the past for me, as even tiny amounts spike me terribly. I either leave it out or have konjac rice or cauliflower rice when everyone else has basmati (south Indian son-in-law) . Have you tested dals? I find I can't have them either (some people can , but unfortunately I'm not one of them). All the beans spike me with the exception of black soybeans (must try mung beans, I hear they are lower in carbs.) Strangely although chana/chickpeas spike me, besan/chickpea flour in small amounts doesn't cause spikes for me.

    My weight loss was better this week - 3 lbs or 1.3 kg
    That gives me a total loss so far of 79.39 lbs (35.7 lb or 5 stone 9), I've now lost over 29% of my starting weight.
