    Morning all
    A straight 6.0 this morning, missing those 5s but I'm into my 5th day of this rubbish bad chest so to be expected. I'm also hungry in the mornings at the mo for some reason.
    On the positive side at least it's Friday

    I’m thinking exactly the same - bgs have been quite dramatically lower since using the Tee2 so I’m setting myself up for a fall come next HbA1c I expect!
    For now though I am happy every time I take a reading and my day is instantly better so I’ll just have to take it on the chin next time ( I won’t of course, I’ll be cheesed off for a bit as usual)

    Well done for gym attendance, I agree it’s a good idea to try and create a habit. Hope all goes well with your mum’s appointment next week.

    6.9 this morning, so rather pleased with that. Osteo appointment today, really nice lady, things feeling a lot less stiff now. Another appointment next week. Rather tired after my day in Leicester yesterday, but it was a good day, so worth it.!

    Hope everyone is doing well today and looking forward to the weekend.

    Iv been fasting for nearly 24 hours (last meal at 5pm yesterday). This morning I was 7.2 and as of 5 min ago I’m now 5.4, all I have had today is 5 cups of tea, no milk and obviously no sugar.

    I’m new to all this as Iv only recently been diagnosed with Type 2. Does this sound about right?

    Now that is my kind of marathon. :)

    @Emma_369 and @karen8967 hugs to you, and hope that you'll soon be feeling great again. And a hug to @Cumberland with best wishes to you and your family and the darling puppy.

    An even 6 this morning from my right hand, which I'll take instead of the 6.6 from my left hand.

    Fog again this morning, third day in a row, but visitors who drove over here told me it's lifted from street level. I'm glad for all the drivers today.

    Maybe this would be a day for robot cars? Can they do Instrument Driving Rules as pilots do Instrument Flight Rules?

    Good morning, 4.2 for me

    I'm envious - we don't do any yard work here until the end of May when all danger of frost is past. Right now, my backyard is under snow, frozen and then after it thaws out, the soil has to dry out (that takes quite a while). Trees and hedges can't be pruned yet either because of frost. People usually start yard work and gardening here by Victoria Day on the long weekend the last Monday in May because that's when the risk of frost is passed (my province Ontario still celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday). That weekend the plant nurseries/gardencentres are jammed with people eager to garden after winter. This morning my husband had to resalt the driveway and walkway again because of more ice this morning. We are supposed to get a thaw this weekend, then more snow.

    Yes, that sounds good. Was your blood glucose lower last night? If so, you may have dawn phenomena, raised numbers in the morning because your liver dumps glucose before you wake (about 50% of Type 2s have it).

    I've just finished a fast myself. I find eating low carb has made fasting much easier and I'm much less hungry. (Before low carb eating, I was always hungry.)

    Although fasting isn't helpful for all Type 2s (and those who take insulin or insulin producing drugs need to watch their numbers carefully so they don't go too low), some of us find it helpful. I'm a diet only Type 2 who doesn't ever get hypos although I stop fasting when it starts to get near 4.0 (3.9 and below is hypoglycemia.)

    I fast several times a week as it helps my blood sugar and weight loss (I'm one of the Type 2s who's had a long standing weight problem - very insulin resistant.)
