    5.8 today...but then I ate duck with hoisin sauce and pancakes for dinner (without the onions due to my allergy :() which obviously means I ate too much so that's really not bad at all I think :p

    Hello all,

    4.7 this morning.

    @the-mental-one -- fbg of 5.8 after hoisin sauce and pancakes is excellent.

    Swipey showed 4.2 - this much is true. @ziggy_w thanks for the compliment yesterday but Swipey is too complimentary so a large pinch of salt needed.

    Morning All 5.8 by the old method, Swipey higher but coming to the end of his useful life. He was useful to show me my issues lie with my sleep and stress rather than what I usually eat. Some great fbgs here after chips, duck and pancakes, etc. Well done ALL.

    3.9 this morning at 6 AM finger prick. Took a finger prick reading again just now and its 4.0 so its all good and readings from libre on xdrip and tomato are consistent with stabilizing around 4.2

    62 hours into fasting, feeling tip top and have all intentions to take it till tomorrow but given readings are nearing 3.x I might eat when meter says.

    Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

    Well, you know how you got this overnight Spike. And within 24 hours you’ll be back in the 5s. I don’t know what I’m doing to be stuck in the low 6s. Sure, I’m grateful from where I was at 18 months ago.

    3.4 at 6 AM. Then a warm shower got it to 4.2 but xdrip / tomato was showing a downward trend. I was not feeling dizzy or down at any point during my fasting but I also do not want readings to be lingering in 3 so I just broke my fast at 84 hours mark (8 AM).

    Lets see how the readings behave tomorrow morning. Have a lovely Sunday people. :)
