    Your control is admirable. I can only do 2 meals a day when on holiday then I can indulge in substantial brunch at 10am and go through to supper but that doesn’t work in everyday life. I’m sure its worth you trying 3 meals if its not too carby. Good luck to you.

    I understand. Used to think that way, too. Seemed like a competition. I was wrong though. My reason for change of mind? Simply keeps me focused. If I don’t report I stop testing. If I stop testing I start eating things that are not good for me. By reporting here, I can give and receive feedback, and support.
    However, what works for you, is encouraging, well done and thanks for sharing.
    Oops, almost forgot.. 5.9 this morning with new meter. Teetering on the brink of sixes, or with room for error it could be within my estimated 5.4 range.
    Several days with no meter, meant a bit of a casual disregard for what I consumed. Getting back to it pronto.

    So sorry for your loss, @JohnEGreen . MND is a terrible condition. I hope his passing was peaceful.

    I do test everyday, luckily I don't need to report it but I do find posting my food keeps my mind concentrated.
    My biggest fear is some emotional disaster that would send me back under the chocolate comfort blanket.
    That's why I live and support this forum, so many hints and tips

    7.5 this morning (or Saturday morning as its now Sunday). Had two panic attacks during early hours of Saturday morning so expected my sugar to be a lot higher than 7.5 so slightly relieved but surprised at the same time. I am okay just too frightened to sleep in case of a reoccurrence of panic again :rolleyes:

    Possibly time for Stabbo to have a holiday? I am absolutely certain you are "doing all the right things" (™ Wiseacre Inc) and it is typical of you to add your wish for us to have a good Sunday. You too - maybe console your chaps after Brighton were beastly to their team:D

    6.2. Arrgh!
    Ok, so I ate chips last night. So know the reason. Chips were nice with a dollop of mayonnaise. Won’t be repeating that meal a hurry, though. :)
    I also add my Sunday best wishes greetings to one and all.
    Be well folks.

    6.2 this morning

    Anyone else notice their levels seem higher when on their period (or a few days before)?
