    Hello all,

    Hugs for the higher than desired fasting blood sugars, @mojo37 and @SaskiaKC. Hope today's will be better.
    @Chriztopher -- Yeah! Well done on getting a 6.4 today.

    4.7 for me today.

    5.5 which is better than I’d expected after an unnecessarily large steak for dinner, then polishing off half a jar of almond butter later on.

    5.5 this morning
    Bit higher, but did have a very enjoyable corn beef pie and some merengues so not totally surprised. Can't complain though, Metformin and diet without the other drugs is working out :)

    Morning All. 6.7 not that surprising after a spoon of leftover pasta bake and a nightmare.

    5.8 this morning. Hugs for the nightmare @PenguinMum and forget about the pasta bake, I bet it was worth it.
    Great score @Andydragon
