    Hi everyone BG this morning @2:50 6.9
    BG @9:40 6:7
    Don't understand I worked my socks off yesterday getting house emptied of all Christmas trees and things lifting them in loft to hubby I hate getting in loft. Dusting hoovering and steam cleaning the whole Bungalow and I'm back in 6 s! K
    Can't sleep again lately worrying about hospital appointment on Tuesday for a biopsy on leg to see if its skin cancer or not.
    I went doctors on Friday and just got back home and the hospital called with this appointment to dermatologist I have had a Basel cell carcinoma a couple of years back on my shoulder so hopefully it won't be any more than this! Everything crossed trying to stay positive! K

    @tigger1 thank you hopefully it will soon, your numbers are now coming down so that's great, but from reading others BG readings and how lots of different things that go on in people's lives can hugely affect our levels. So bear this in mind if you don't always get the readings you hope for and don't get despondent we all are on this rollercoaster ride together especially so if your not on meds like us! K
    Hopefully your weight loss will spur you to keep going! Good luck!K

    No where near as bad as I feared it would be this morning @ 5.3 feeling better in the fives than the fours or lower.
    Granny Grump hope all goes well for your appointment sending hugs your way.

    Good morning.....7.5 at 4am tested out of curiosity .......tested again at 10am 7.1.......
    Cant work out why I'm so high,but sleep levels are very poor so could be a link there.We are off a main ferry route to Ireland.New traffic calming has been set up in our village and in protest the HGV drivers sound their horns at various times during the night!!!This has been every night since the beginning of December.
    @Granny_grump_ Hope your hospital appointment has good outcome and then you will sleep better.Gx

    Good morning all. Blood sugars were 5.1 today. I am now trying alternating one day with exercise and one without to establish a routine I can maintain during the work week.

    @Granny_grump_ -- Kathleen, I am keeping my fingers crossed for you -- no wonder your blood sugars are a bit higher in spite of the physical effort expended while cleaning yesterday due to worrying.
    @TiggerB -- Well done. Great achievement.
    @Bubbsie -- Great blood sugars this morning.
