    Morning all 5.8 this morning, it’ll have to do. I don’t think the second vax has had much effect on my BG levels so far. It’s hard to tell though as I never really know what to expect day to day anyway.
    @ziggy_w thank you for your kind words. I’m feeling ok now, I’m glad you’ve caught up with work, hope you can take it easy for a while now.
    @HeliGary and @CotswoldsBloke congratulations to you both for your terrific HbA1c results.

    Congratulations on the fbg after more carbs @Pasha. 4.7 for me but it is Libre so I'm not silly enough to believe it is real. I find it hard enough to deal with the hunger and tiredness without stabbing and despairing at crazy numbers. Libre and morning weigh ins motivate me - the food is a massive inconvenience. However, diabetic complications would be a bigger inconvenience. Certainly a whole lot less intrusive and inconvenient than the treatment and monitoring for bladder cancer.

    Good luck with the "C" treatment and monitoring for your BC. I was given radiation and hormone treatments for PC, now just get monitored and take a few pills a day. Hope that you get there soon and dont suffer too much on the way.

    Thanks @Pasha. Treatment was nearly 2 years ago and no biggy - hilarious in some ways. I'm now monitored annually - 5-10 mins. This stuff is daily and I don't really have much trust in it - too much like Witchcraft to me. but I've bumbled along for 6 years Glad to hear your PC is under control - must be a relief.

    Thank you for you comments @ianpspurs, @DJC3 @nutribolt, @CotswoldsBloke and @PenguinMum really appreciated.

    5.8 this morning after an unexpected drive to Yorkshire yesterday and a quick flight home last night.

    Off out for a short run this morning, to see if the legs can cope.

    6.6 at 6 AM and 6.6 at 7.50AM.

    Report for those interested in my little experiment:
    • Before breaking the fast my reading was 5.1
    • During the day it went to 8 and it stayed above 7.6 for about an hour. This was between 10.15 to 11.15.
    • I broke fast at 96 hrs by eating 40gms of extra mature cheddar cheese, 100gms of air fried celeriac, three almond Flour pancakes and 2 chocolate keto bars. So net carb intake was well below 10gms.
    • 2 hours after eating this my reading was 5.7.
    • Before sleeping at around 23.30 reading was 6.1.
    I genuinely have no idea what needs to be done to bring down these numbers. If eating what little I ate after 4 days of not eating anything is failing I guess I will just have to stick with ADF and ride it out. 6s I dont have a problem with, its the readings going past 7.6 during fasting that are puzzling and higher readings this morning after just a small intake that seem to be training my brain to discourage eating which can't be good so I need to consciously strike a balance.

    Have a great weekend everyone. :)

    From personal experience I 100% agree with that hence the winner. I think I'm still dealing with the fallout from "too much" fasting nearly 4 3 years on. This is totally N=1 and some seem to thrive on fasting.

    Thrilled to tiny little bits. 4.8 this morning. I did not believe it was possible, I thought that I was some sort of alien who was unable to have FBGs under 6! Been mad at the studies this week and have been registering 6s all week. I had to jump online and let my lovely 'diabetic club' (as Mr P calls this page) know this fantastic news. Will probably go up again tomorrow, but for today I am savouring this :)

    Thank you, but hugs to you for being stuck in the sticky sixes again. Why is it always so hard to leave?
