    5.3 for me this morning.
    Had to test twice as I couldn't believe first reading .
    I'm on a mission now to show this nasty diabetes that I control it rather than letting it control me .

    Hope you all have a nice stress free day .

    Oh dear. 6.1 this morning.......perhaps because I did’t take it immediately on getting up, rushed around a bit first and have a very stressful day ahead to look forward to at work. I made some celeriac chips last night that was the only difference in diet and before bedtime was 5.9.........sigh

    Actually this may not be unusual. I found exactly the same - so I eat at breakfast but stop eating at lunch time or mid afternoon most days. It absolutely suits my metabolism and my blood sugars stay good.

    I read somewhere that doing IF this way is better for some people. It definitely is for me.

    4.5 this morning was 4.1 at bedtime last night so had a small amount of carbs as didn't want to go any lower than that and as within the allowable error of the meter it could have actually been as low as 3.5

    @CondorX I have given a hug because you were clearly unhappy with your readings but have to say they are well within range and not that bad in fact they are quite good.:)

    7.1 Not good for my fasting blood test today. I needed more time for the effects of the change back to breakfasts and IF (from the skipping breakfast routine that didn't work.) But hey, it's better than yesterday.

    7.3 this morning.
    I am going to try to shift my eating window, and have food in the morning soon after waking, then finish eating for the day late afternoon.

    These fasting levels are getting to be tedious. The only other change in recent weeks is that I haven’t been well enough to get to my usual swimming pool and gym sessions. Will start a gradual return, even though it seems unwise to change more than one variable at a time as it makes it impossible to be able to determine the effects. I need to see better results.
