    4.1 at 6AM and 5.3 right now... overnight average is 4.2. I stopped fasting at 20 hrs mark yesterday so the readings are quite surprising really.

    I am a bit perplexed at the erratic readings though... in 6.x after longer fasts yet in 4.x after shorter fast. Need to understand why that might be... but I seem to have found the limitations of all knowing Google.

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    Morning all. So Swipey was wearing 4.9 this morning. Neither Brentford happy nor Hameed sick as a parrot over that. @Estragon thanks for the compliment and we may need the Burnley Lara. @DJC3 enjoy the Holiday. I've never been to The Lake District - Julie has - just doesn't appeal. Hills and water (cold? wet?) aren't for me. @Ryhia great run of bg and the only baking we ever made work had protein powder.

    I have to sadly report of a rise in blood sugars this morning. Had a bit of a stressy day yesterday as we travelled down a very congested motorway with at least 3 breakdowns/accidents and two cars playing chicken for a few miles to look at a potential new car. Cost was equivalent to the prices of houses in 1975 and detached ones at that. Considering how much we paid for ours, how long we have had it and what we were offered on our old one, are these things really worth the prices they charge?
    Tested at 5.9 - hoping everyone is ok today.

    Morning All. 6.3 for me today no surprise! @Ryhia hugs for the stressful journey. @DJC3 hope yours is a safe and non stressy one. @nutribolt I dont think theres anything rational about this condition. Enjoy Saturday All.

    Gosh that is a long journey worse than from my house to Wiltshire - hope the roads are quiet for you and that you enjoy your hols - family are off to Pooley Bridge next week camping. Kids can't wait.

    5.8 at 6 AM and overnight average of 5.2. No fasting yesterday although a glass of wine in night so this can change for worse.

    Have a great day everyone. :)

    So, Swipey felt 4.8 would suit me for Sunday best :meh:. Longish period in 3s from and OMAD of rump steak (I prefer ribeye but like a bargain), halum chips and salad from 2 hrs after through night - low to mid 4s on stabbington so comfortable?. There may be mileage in red meat eating for me but the kgs are king in Pworld.

    I don't understand? I've been given 4 likes to my morning number, which has risen one whole point over yesterday. Is it that this signifies something good happening to me, hence the "likes"? For my money, I do not like an increase over yesterday. Confused . . . ?

    Hi,

    To avoid the risk of derailing the topic. Why not private message & ask the members involved...? :)
