    5.2 after a continental breakfast for dinner! (No bread). My goal is to get into the 4s by next Monday.

    Diabetes week. Some great posts on twitter for info.

    Good morning all.

    Fasting blood sugars today were 4.9.

    Thanks for the welcome back, @JohnEGreen. It's really good to be on here again.

    3.8 Libre 4.8 finger prick with Caresens Dual not that much difference between them and taking the fifteen percent tolerance into consideration they could both be rightish.

    5.4 but it was silly o’clock when it really should have been in the 4s That was my last testing strip - forgot to bring a spare pot away with me - and my Libre is due to finish sometime today. Probably just as well, the generally high readings atm aren’t helping me feel any more relaxed.

    4.6 for me today on Libre reader. Hug for readings and scoreboard pressure @DJC3. My readings are Libre so almost certainly far higher than yours and we both know you'll be fine come A1c time and I won't.

    3.9 this morning on the Libre so as @ianpspurs says probably higher but my fingers are enjoying the holiday from constant finger pricking so am not going to check with a prickometer.

    Hello all,

    Fasting blood sugars today a tad higher than usual with 5.3 (result of an substantial after-midnight snack and lack of exercise yesterday).

    Have a great day, all.

    Well, I scored a magnificent 8.0 this morning. Only thing I have been doing differently this last week or so is walking. Lots of walking. Pounding pavements round the deserted streets of my neighbourhood every morning.
    Perhaps today I will just stay home with feet up, see how it goes.

    I'm not seeing any posts here since mine 25 hrs ago - odd. Anyhow, my fbg Friday 12th is 4.3 and a whole slew of other data is in the zone. Learned the boys have bought me a set of golf clubs for my birthday next week. Very Elbow day today. Go well people.
