Interesting you use single cream rather than double. Is that out of preference or to watch the fat intake?
It's the fat. Although double cream has slightly fewer carbs it has almost 3 times the fat content of single cream. I do put a bit of double in my coffee, though.

Thanks for reassuring me feel lousy today
I had mine at 9am - but midday I was wrapped up in bed after taking ibuprofen and paracodeine. Was shivering, pounding headache, muscles felt like I'd been hit by a bus. And was really tired. By 4pm the next day I was absolutely fine and as if nothing had ever happened.
Finger crossed you'll sail through the side-effects as quickly.

My niece was exactly the same, but she hadn’t been given the pre-jab pep-talk so wasn’t expecting to feel quite so bad. She rang her dad at 3am, sweating, shaking, and terrified! She’s fine now, phew! :)

Morning all. 4.3 here.

Watched “Isle of Dogs” last night - what a quirky film, loved it, but then couldn’t get to sleep thinking about it. o_O Lovely sunny day here, so far :D so might do a bit of gardening this morning.

Well done on reaching your weekly goal @Ditto. :p

I have no bum either @freesia - I thought cycling would help me develop a bit of a shelf back there, but no.:( My mum’s the same.
I don't mind my bum. Its my belly and thighs i hate. Swap?

As we’re discussing this... I’m happy with my bum, thighs & belly. It’s the fat around my organs that I don’t like :D :D:D

I’m sure they’re fine! :D I’m happy with all of me, it’s not perfect (whatever that is) but it does the job.
Sorry @freesia, it was @SueEK that said she had no bum - you must’ve wondered why I suddenly started posting about your bum! o_O Red faced emoji.

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.
Out of interest why were you worried about the milk and not the cereal? You could try unsweetened almond milk unless there's a reason not to as that 0 carbs xx

Happened to see a doctor privately today who asked me if I had any underlying conditions. Mentioned the T2 of course.
Later he asked me to detail any meds/supplements etc and I mentioned the metformin 500mg once a day.
Literally just dawned on me that he said “OK so that’s right at the start of your diabetes journey I’m assuming...” and moved right on.

He was assuming that there’s an inevitability in increased dosage and more medication for the diabetes over time.
The surprising thing is that he couldn’t have been more than 5 years max out of med school and he’s already responding to diabetes in a well established medication only mindset.
I wasn’t seeing him for anything related to the diabetes but it struck me as a real shame that someone so young is already so set in their ways.

I go from the sublime to the ridiculous. 8.30am yesterday, 4.53am today! Anyhoo, a nice round 6 pour moi this post Boris roadmap morning. I’m feeling pretty excited but apprehensive about the next four months. It all sounds great, just hope we are able to contain our excitement and take it easy, no rushing ahead and making things any worse. Calmly does it. Although I have spent the last three hours awake wondering how much a gazebo would be? :oops:
Have a terrific Tuesday, after the last two days very spring like weather, we’re back to the winter, heavy rain and gale force winds! Oh joy! Day stuck in the house. Now where is my Argos catalogue, I’ve a gazebo to purchase! :)

05:20 BS 6.8 :) THAT’S more like it!:D

I wake to yet another storm wailing outside & it’s noisy! :eek: Covering my ears!o_O

Yesterday my BS settled nicely in that about an hour after the 14 it had dropped to 7.7 then 6.8 about another hour later & was bang on a HS 5.2 by the time midday LR went in as usual! Then, after lunch was 8.6. Never ate dinner as I, unbelievably felt tired after around 16:30 & went back to bed! o_O I slept very heavily again & could feel myself wheezing while asleep so, I subconsciously pulled down my 2nd pillow & slept with my head propped up: I always have two pillows & usually sleep on one with the other sitting upright on top of it at the back, sleeping on three quarters of the pillow; it’s there as a head/back rest usually when reading in bed & very handy to pull down to sleep on at various angles depending on how much propping up I need with breathing difficulties! I pulled it down the while way, this time, & was sleeping on two pillows: sometimes it halfway & sleeping on one & a half pillows! :rolleyes: I’m still staying pretty mobile & that’s seems to be holding up with the increased inhalers? Hopefully I won’t descend to the hardly able to move, confined to bed stage, this time? Fingers crossed emoji!

A Very Good Morning to you all & have a Wonderful Day! ;)

Morning all,
Sooo, I had a telephone consultation with my Diabetes Nurse yesterday on the results of my recent blood tests...

And...
It appears I am officially now IN REMISSION from diabetes!

HbA1c was again 40 and so that is under the threshold for a whole year.
A bit stunned really!

@Snowwy what great news, many congratulations xx
Disappointing 8.3 today, wasn’t expecting that. Had a very small tea but did have a few cherries, didn’t even have a coffee or anything, don’t get it,every morning is a surprise.
Builders are in at work, not easy listening to dictation when they are banging away all day!!
Must dash, have a good one all x

5.0 for me out of the 4's. Up early just have more energy, this lasts a few days then I sleep 10 hours.

It's nice to look forward to the day even get abit disappointed at night because the day has ended. Treadmill for me after breakfast and now wear the safety cord as I fell off a couple of weeks ago and it threw me across the garage and into the calor gas heater, got away with a bruised leg.
