    5.2 wine involved again last night.
    @LindaManville welcome, and don’t worry you will get there. Have you cut down on sugary, starchy food?

    Morning All. 6.2 but later today and gave in to 2 popadoms with my Tandoori t/a last night! @HeliGary really great progress. @Estragon hugs but you will get back to good numbers again. @LindaManville can I suggest you start a separate thread and you will get more help. We are only able to do “some chat” here. Best wishes.

    5.4 at 6 AM and 5.4 just now. I broke my fast at 72 hours mark last night not because of anything sinister but plain old temptation. You see my daughter wanted to get some ingredient for the breakfast she is planning for her mum today (mother's day in the UK) and so we went to M&S and looking at "not just food but the M&S food" :D triggered the temptation so when we were back home in order to avoid eating anything silly I broke my fast with lot of cheese(100gms), some broccoli and swede chips.

    @Estragon 8.1 after a 22 hour fast is high but two questions. How was it to fast...were you feeling hungry all the time? Second, how much water or fluids did you consume in those 22 hours?

    Have a great day everyone and a very happy mother's day to all mums here. :)

    5.8, new needle!

    C'est la guerre.....

    edit for stats update:
    Weight: 73.5 kg, no change, this is good as doing a bit breakfast, see other thread
    BP: 115 / 66, no change, this is good as I was wondering... some light headed moments.

    Weight every two weeks, BP every four weeks.

    Hi, what do you mean “How was it to fast...” after I pushed through normal allotted BF, I just cracked on. No, I didn’t fell hungry all the time. I consumed as much as I was aware I wanted/needed. I didn’t push water? I was peeing.

    Good morning all.

    Up late at night (or rather early morning) and then slept in a bit today. Fbg was 4.6 today.

    Happy Mother's day, everyone.
