    We don't normally call it excrement in The Fens. Nor mendacious.:angelic: On topic point is T2 management isn't wholly and solely carbs and weight and fbg is just a snapshot of a complex movie.

    5.2 first thing, then 5.5 before breakfast and 5.8 two hrs after! Still amazed by these incredulous numbers since I've never hit 5's before these past two months. Got into a pair of size 12 skin tight jeggings this morning (easily) so another big surprise! Bought them two years ago and they wouldn't go past halfway up my legs! Just too much to take in!

    :woot::woot: May one assume jeggings are desirable vestments for the modern gal? Fbg is all very peng.

    Thank you. The only horse I got off was the testing horse. Have carried on with eating as usual. Just couldn’t see the point of all the testing when I had 2 very huge variations on HbA1c from blood drawn within 5 minutes of each draw. Also another vastly different predicted HbA1c from the Mysugr app. It did seem futile. With hindsight, not testing can lead to slippery slope of being casual about food. So here I am.
    Oh and today started with a liein and a 7.7, which fell to 5.5 after fasting on just coffee, and a walk in the park.

    I gave you a ‘winner’ rating because there is no ‘jealous’ rating. ;)

    I can only wonder.
    I never seem to catch the lower end of the bounce, but still seem ok and damage not apparent after 16 years with T2.
    Though I am old, and somewhat knackered.

    Morning All. 6.1 today, my now normal. Have a good day everyone.
    @coby great news about the jeggings!! @Pipp welcome back. I had a first break from my meter (and my social media) the last weekend and just tried to be sensible in food choices and it was very liberating.

    This morning at 6.32 fbg was 4.2 now it is 6.1 . That is according to the new libre sensor and the brand new Libre2 reader that Abbott kindly supplied free of charge.

    5.8 this morning (even following some crispy duck and beef with vegetables from the Chinese takeaway last night). Absolutely stoked with that.

    Morning all. Sombre skies here and sombre mood in this family. 5.8 on Swipey - Elsie no worky on this bug nor the bigger picture. I could kick over the traces, stop testing or do the right thing. Kick over the traces and T2 and other issues are still there. Swipe, mackerel salad and on we go. Smile and wave boys, smile and wave.
