    Morning everyone 5.5 today I’m probably not going anywhere today but I’m looking forward to tonight as Shane Dawson is posting part one of his conspiracy theories series tonight and yesterday my mum got me a lovely new hot water bottle so I’ll be looking forward to sitting down with that later. Have a good day everyone

    Good morning all. It's snowing outside, the forecast said to expect 2 to 4 inches of snow.

    @DJC3 and @shelley262 -- Thanks for the welcome back. I am glad to be posting again too. It's final exam period and had almost all my exams (10 of them) bunched in the first week. Still managed to get in an hour of exercise daily, but wasn't easy. Sure this helped with fbgs.

    @Debandez -- Congrats on your low fbgs and the result of your Hba1c hometest. I have a feeling that the hometest often reflects the results of our daily testing better than the lab test.

    Blood sugars this morning were 4.8.

    Keep warm everyone.

    good morning all :)

    4.4 today

    oh, it snow! thankfully it isn't any colder at the moment than yesterday when it didn't really get above freezing all day.

    Staying warm is a bit of a thing with me now I'm thinner than I was. We took mum out yesterday and she walks more slowly than mr. gee and I, so, I had on a tee shirt, a shirt and a big wooly jumper under my coat plus my thick tights and a pair of running shorts under a long winter skirt - cue laughter from mr. gee :hilarious:

    Hopefully not going far today, luckily I have some indoor jobs to do ;)

    Stay safe everyone and I hope your day treats you kindly :)

    @Debandez love your brochure! I think we need to call you the Diabetes Dynamo! Do you know if the other lady speaker is on board with LCHF? Well done on your own numbers.
    @Ziggy2017 good to hear from you...have a snug day under a rug with your viewing.

    "....and that was Bennie & the Jets.

    We're out in the road today in sunny South London, with the DCUK Radio Roadshow...."GOOD MORNING, SARF LUNDUN..<ROAR>

    The promised "Yellow " snow hasn't materialised, but it is icy underfoot in places, so be careful out there people.

    Temperature is expected to hit the low 30's today before dropping this evening.

    Here in the studio it's a balmy 5.4, on the old FBG scale..so a pleasantly warm feeling.

    Just while I'm having a sneaky cuppa, have a listen, to the next song up.

    This is a good one for all you active types, get you up and jumping about and get that ol' heart pumping...

    and when I heard it, it made me think of those newish to the forum,
    ( We all remember THOSE dreadful, early days, right...:bigtears:)

    Just to let you KNOW, those first few days & weeks, can be REALLY hard.

    And for you, there's a message, in the music...

    And the message is,
    Hang Tough, it all seems odd at the minute, but the changes coming ARE all for the best..and it does get easier, honest.

    And here, with changing, is Paloma Faith..



    Have a good day, all..:)

    Yes, its a bit limiting but the list given is the whole meal and you can change options with the little arrows to the right. For instance I chose a 600 calorie meal and got something not very good - did not want nuts for breakfast. I eventually got a spinach and cheese omelet and 4 strips of bacon - more of a main meal for me. The three dots in the circle give you all the values for that aspect of the suggested meal

    Anyhow, good luck with your hunting. I tend to print off any good recipe that I find, especially if I can include carb and calorie values, and put them into a folder in my cupboard of chemicals and mysticism (Mrs Miggins’ name for it).

    Morning all, a 5.6 for me. Haven't eaten much last couple of day due to feeling under the weather. But...onwards and upwards, just had my 1st try of the treadmill, it's going to help up my steps and budge the weight stall! But I'm guessing with this possible UTI and puffy eyes it could all be fluid. Enjoy your day on this cold frosty one...

    Oh dear, bonking had a whole different meaning where I grew up. The ink pad stamp sounds like the black spot in Treasure Island

    Hi @Cumberland - how is that fitting with you. Are you still experimenting with meds?

    6.2 at 0645.
    My last 24 hour readings look like this. First meal of the day was at about 2pm and there was a rise. Dinner was at about 8pm, at midnight when I went to bed it was 5.3 and then went nuts during the night. I did give it a biscuit to play with while I slept though.
