    Morning All. 6.7 this morning but been off colour for a few days and eaten very little so other factors at play as @ianpspurs would allude to. It could have gone either way. @CAllyD welcome (back ?) and keep trying all we can do. @mojo37 you got this knowhow to move on. Happy Friday everyone.

    6.4 from Swipey so smile and wave boys, smile and wave. Hugs for everyone else whose body apparently disagrees that they did all the right things. There are also times when The D ain't the biggest, baddest beast in the jungle. @BrianDoc tight lines. @DEBBIESCOTT nice start to your day. @PenguinMum I wouldn't be quoting me, my Cambs village has been bereft of an idiot since I was banished to Suffolk. Go Team D - anyone else having a magical day with SSSF, avo and toasted pine nuts?

    5.3 this a.m. Had a really big bowl of meaty Bolognese last night at around 7:00 instead of the usual 5 or so, followed by a handful of nuts - a bit carb heavy so v. happy with that result.

    @ianpspurs - You keep clinging to that rock :)

    Good morning from
    I have the rebound effect happening every morning so 9 & up are my usual morning numbers.
    Today was 10.2.
    I feel like I need to find a fix for this rebound effect.
    Happy Friday folks!

    been a little out of it this last week and a bit, injured my back and bloods were higher than normal, in the mid 6's rather than 5's to low 6's

    doc gave me a drug to use for two weeks since I didn't seem to be improving and it is royally screwing with my blood sugars, first morning after taking it was a 7.3, today after a much lower carb meal last night was a 6.9, and just now after a meal that is normally ok for me I hit 11.1...I might need to go a bit keto for these two weeks.

    Morning All. 6.1 but these 6s are likely due to eating very little these last few days due to constant stomach and joint pain especially at night. Think it might be a flare up of IBD but am exhausted. Anyway on we go. Happy Saturday everyone.
