    Good Morening Ladies and Gentlemen and all who will avoid the media today, don't you just love speculation followed by pretend shock.
    A 6.5 for me this morning. Well under 10 so quite happy with that.

    Well folks I don't know what you're doing today, but my day is planned. Whatever and wherever enjoy it, not forgetting to bark at the postman, chase the odd car and howl at next doors cat. Must go shoes to shine, one brown one and one black one hehehehe

    6.2 which is no doubt a reflection of feeling a little peckish at 10.45 last night and making a coffee with cream and enjoying it with 4 small pieces of choccy. A new one I spotted whilst away in the Lake District. Made with Stevia but obviously not as BS friendly as I had anticipated! It was really nice though!!

    EDIT

    PR team have contacted me, they wanted to update me on the Birmingham videos. These are all being used as part of The Low Carb Program – they are being used on social media, the blog, as trailer videos and the case studies are also being used as Low Carb Champions to inspire new people to sign up! They have done an amazing job with these videos. Especially mine as I was a bumbling idiot on the day!

    'If anyone who contributed to the Birmingham videos would like access to The Low Carb Program just let me know and I can organise some codes for you' from Natalie. Any one wanting a code needs to make contact. I've asked for one this morning.

    Don’t worry being in the high fives is still a much better number than you started out with , I guess it is down in the prediabetic level View attachment 30674

    6.5 today. The insulin levels must be more or less right now. Very very pleased. Still got one more glicazide to remove and then I am just on insulin. Busy day for me with the vote and all. Hope everyone, vote-watchers and otherwise, has a wonderful day.

    I’m hoping I get my insulin doses resolved soon! It’s very encouraging to hear of people getting things sorted in the end :)

    good morning all :)

    4.7 today

    looking a bit grey here but it's quite mild so we may go out for lunch since we spent time chopping bits of tree yesterday and walking mum's dog :)

    @ianpspurs we have a chainsaw but it's pretty heavy and we find the Black and Decker 'alligator' very handy for many jobs. It's a small electric chainsaw like a big pair of jawed scissors. If you're canny with it you can do quite reasonable sized jobs.
    We took down all the fallen branch that was resting on the fence, it broke one fence post so we'll have to replace that. We also did major trimming on a laurel that was reaching out over the fence. Lots more stuff to trim back in stages along the fence bit by bit.
    Now we have to finish dragging the bits back to the main area, chop off the small stuff and cut the thicker bits into pieces for mum's woodburner. That's a job for another day ;)

    Hope your day treats you well :)

    Hi everyone! 5.5 for me first thing. Happy with that. I am beginning to see consistent numbers below 6, first thing in the morning. Early days yet for a conclusion... But..Being mainly a carnivore for the past 3 months now, is certainly bearing fruits! Will shall see? You all have a good day!

    I hope my insulin levels are stable now as my morning reading was 5.9 . My A1c is in a few weeks and i am really hoping that has dropped . It was 105 in November , so fingers crossed .

    Forgot to post here this morning, it was 6.6. Much higher than I’d like but I expect it went even higher as I dropped Mr C at the station to get the train back to Cornwall then my car wouldn’t start so had to call the AA to get back home. Glad I got dressed first - as its only a 15 min drive I nearly went out in my pjs!

    @SB.25 I hope the walk helped and your bg is back down again.
    @Roulis well done, it’s great that you are seeing the benefits now.

    I managed to get down to 10 which is still too high, but better than 14 so got to be a bit pleased. I had to eat a small bit of breakfast as I needed to take my tablets. L Will walk again at lunch to bring down further.
