G'day all. 6.9 @ 7.16am :) Really really happy this morning, on track with my weight loss when I'd been worried I wouldn't make the 2lbs loss this week but lost 14ozs more than I needed to yay. :D
Good on you Ditto x

@MAC2020 So pleased you are feeling in better spirits. I was worried about you saying you had so many concerns weighing you down the other day. Hope you had a lovely walk and feel refreshed from it and the good feelings continue. I really find exercise hugely beneficial to my sense of wellbeing. Motivation to get started is the hard part.

Hi @rebrascora thank you so much for your concern. Yes I was rather down in the dumps the other day with the weight of the world on my shoulders, not anywhere near desparate as one kind poster out of concern interpreted, but I didn't know where this sudden avalanche of problems came from. I wasn't able then to see a way through.

But... As you said, a few good early morning walks to clear the brain fog, listening to the birds, a measure of faith and relying of higher powers, and I was suddenly able to see a path. I started an action plan and by responding to the most pressing issues, am quite upbeat about it now. That's not to say I don't need help. I do. But it means that's things are more in perspective now and it also helps that the sun has been shining recently!

I hope relations with your ex are proceeding as you hope too. Relationships can be tricky things. But it'll be alright in the end. And if it's not alright, it's not yet the end. Wishing only the best for you.

Goo morning - 2.6
@SueEK I'm sure you'd see it differently too if it was because you literally had to rather than wanted to and every night too, so frustrating when you need to inject for 30g carbs at tea time but then bed rolls around and you need 50g carbs just to avoid a hypo, (of which I've not long had hence delayed comment :rolleyes: LOL) as for bum I had a fab one (Bruce;s and many others thoughts, not my own) until diagnosis and eating disorder but finally got it back now so sorry can't give you it lol xx
I can understand how you feel. I worked so hard to loose my weight and when I have to eat just to bring levels up when I’m not hungry is frustrating x

Morning all 6.6 for me today. Off to work, still one secretary down, nearly a year now, frustrating. @Freddie1966 hope you feel a bit better once you get up again.
Have a good day all x

It's a 5.4 this morning for me. 65.4Kg BMI 24.62

It is interesting that I am in the last half Kg towards my goal (65Kg) and the drive to eat more seems to be stronger and stronger. This is where determination is essential. But the feelings of wanting to eat this or that or a bit more of the other can be quite strong at times.

The other day I tried having breakfast cerial with water instead of milk as breafast was one of the daily carb high meals. It was not very nice and went soggy very quickly. Interesting experiment, abandoned. I'll take the hit as I like my breakfasts...with a little milk.

Looking back right now to 4 months ago. I realise just how unwell I was and how happy I am now to be feeling so much better, to have learned so much....and to have joined this forum and 'met you all'.

Have a great day.

Well done. It is tough.

4.2 for me this morning about half an hour before the alarm went off, so thought I had better get up before it dropped any lower. Managed without any basal again last night but did take a single correction unit at bedtime as I ate quite late and levels were 10.6 and rising. I was toying with 1.5units but so pleased I erred on the side of caution and went with just 1.

@Gwynn You might find that increasing your fat content will help with the hunger, so creamy Greek natural yoghurt on your cereal might have been a better experiment.

@Michael12421 Sorry to see that you are in low numbers again. Did you have a busy day yesterday? Please let us know that you now have a better reading. The missing "d" from Good Morning looks like hypo brain may still be affecting you.

Morning

We're in to the last week of grandad being here for tea most days, only 3 days of it left

It was an 8.4 for me after another 6 digestives last night, by the 4th my jaws are starting to get tired and sore! LOL, probably done the wrong thing for breakfast as was in the 7's pre yesterday morning and dropped with 2U around 3 hours later so even though I'm higher I reduced to 1.5U this morning as can't run the risk of a hypo with grandad due in an hour and my OCD will take over again but Bruce isn't here to help like he was yesterday (yes this is getting far too dangerous for my liking :()

@Freddie1966 by 10pm I'm utterly exhausted and just want my bed, I really can't be bothered most nights munching but as you know we have to so no option
xx

Morning everyone. Woke to 4.7 this morning. Levels a bit erratic atm, can't quite get them where i want. Oh well, every day is a new day.
Back to working from home today after the half term. Will see what Boris has to say later about us going back.
@Ditto, you are doing so well, keep it up.
Have a good day all, even though its dark and rainy outside
