    Morning All. So this morning 5.0 on Swipey (aka Libre) so after 7 days of not doing it the old fashioned way I got a 5.7 and came down to earth. Still very grateful for a 5, glad for you also @DJC3 and @Estragon. @ziggy_w thanks you are always super supportive.

    4.1 this morning. 61 hours into fasting so this number is not really an achievement. I will be breaking my fast today and if hopefully reading tomorrow morning stays in 5.x then that will be happy times.

    Have a wonderful day everyone.

    Thank you @ziggy_w. I seem to have ok results with chicken and veg soup for some reason considering its a higher carb content than I ususoally eat happy with the results. I also need to remember that little glass of whiskey which makes a difference but usually has a delayed reaction.

    5.1 this morning. Not complaining as I snacked late on. It's that hunger again.

    Morning all 6.0 today which is probably better than I deserve after a day of constant grazing yesterday, and a not very good nights sleep.

    Either 4.2 when first awake or 4.8 2 hrs later - both Swipey so very salty. @DJC3 the grazing and disturbed sleep are hardly surprising - take it easy

    Morning All. 5.9 on Swipey but 6.1 in the real world, was lower early but overslept by 45 mins. Thanks @ianpspurs pity Swipey isnt a fan of FFF.
    Good luck @DJC3 you will get back to 5s very soon.
