    6.8 at 6AM after the eating day yesterday. A bit higher than I expected but could be because my daughter and I were watching the movie " Black Widow" up until 1.30AM and then also we slept after getting scolding from mommy of the house. :D

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    5.2, no complaints. Weigh day today and was up 2lbs, hm. Trend is 5lbs loss for the month though, so trying to focus on that!

    Congratulations @HeliGary on your marriage, can't believe you found time to go out running on your wedding day! Congrats for the HbA1c as well.

    4.6 on Swipey here - underwhelmed if I'm honest. Hug for digestion issues @PenguinMum. @DJC3 small price to pay for the reason to celebrate long and hard. Big picture young lady, big picture. Don't anyone ever dare quote me back to myself.

    Morning folks,

    6.2 this morning for me, thanks for the kind comments above.

    No running today, but into the garage for some upper body strength training, some would say I’ve become addicted.

    Thank you. Certainly seem to be less stressed at the moment plus currently doing a review on the foods I am eating. I think I was probably eating too much protein. Also tried cutting our sugar free jelly. Cutting out one thing or another certainly seems to have been beneficial for my bloods.
