    Well done Daisy!

    5.8 at 08:15 today.

    So much for limiting the fruit - I found 'doughnut' peaches at the greengrocers yesterday, also some perfect cherries - and the greengages are still there! Oh well :roll: - just call me 'weak'willed'. :lol:

    Edit: also very well done Didie, with your post-breakfast reading. I think maybe you're still getting a bit of 'dawn phenomenon' with your fasting reading. It took about 5 months for mine to stop.

    6.3 fasting

    viviennem - thanks for your encouraging words. I exercise 45 minutes after breakfast and this seems to bring my post-breakfast levels down. I also do the same after lunch and tea. I've also lost over a stone since my stroke in June so that is probably helping. I'm working really hard with diet and exercise as I really want to avoid another stroke.

    I was 5.8 at 08:15 this morning.

    I did about 4 hours gardening yesterday, so I'm a bit stiff this am. It was nice to be able to do it - it's nearly 2 months since I've able to do anything but mow the lawns - and even that with lots of sitting down between stripes! :lol:

    Mine was 3.7 and I guess that was because I broke my alcohol ban last night and had two glasses of white wine.
