Btw, how many hours are required for a fasting waking test? Is it 8,10 or 12hrs?
The NHS says it should be between 8 and 10 hours. I don't think it matters if it's longer, though.

A 5.5 for me at 06:51. After several weeks of being 15st 4lbs plus or minus a pound my body has finally decided to give in and start loosing weight again. Dropped below 15st this morning with a 14st 13.8lbs :) If I can shift that 0.8lbs I'll hit the 5st weight loss - only another stone to go!

It's a grey day in West Berks but the low cloud is meant to burn off later so hopefully we'll see the sun
So what exactly is your secret @adrian1der?! That's a heck of a lot of weight to lose in 7 months. I'm struggling to lose 3st in 2 years (including a year of lockdown and a stressful worklife inbalance ) let alone 5st!! You must be doing something fabulously well? Do hunger suppressing meds help - if there's such a thing?

I found this in the weight loss group by @adrian1der back in Aug 2020

"Well done Colin. I had my second positive result on Wednesday of this week but was already on a diet. My old house was 10 minutes from the Gym but we moved last year and it is now nearly an hour. When I worked out the cost of a family membership I dropped it and bought an exercise bike which arrived at the end of July. I was 19 and a half stone. Very pleased to see a number starting with 17 stone this morning! OK, 17 stone 13lbs is still probably 4 stone above where I need to be but proud to be moving in the right direction! Low carbs and lots of exercise seems to be, for me, the way to get my weight under control"

Morning

Enjoyed a change of tea last night, with my grandad not being here we changed from fish to some ham, radishes and a rather large helping of cheese coleslaw, was delicious! Was 7.1 when I tested for bed so had 5 digestives

This morning I've gotten a 6.0 so correct call to make, only 1 nightmare last night but wish they would stop!
xx
Hope the nightmares go away soon x

4.2 for me this morning good start to the day ( even if it is a bit early ) . Yesterday had levels of 7.3 in the morning the only difference was I had a small amount of steak at tea the night before . Meat does not agree with me in the evening

3.7 and up early to get a 50min jog on treadmill in after breakfast and bake a Keto loaf before work this afternoon sounds simple but that's a hard day for me :) .

6.2 here. A little higher than I’d like after just steak & salad for tea yesterday. I’ve just come off the blood thinners and wonder if that makes a difference, along with muscle pains that I’ve not had since after my HA last year and going on the blood thinners?

Morning all. A very nice 5.5. Hmmm’d and ahhh’d at bedtime on a 6.9 whether to have a ginger nut, I decided against it, I wasn’t feeling it. Correct decision. Not much news on the baby front. Had a tearful telephone conversation, both of us, with daughter yesterday. Baby still under lamp for jaundice, everything came out how she was desperate to come home, she couldn’t sleep, worried about baby etc etc. It was awful. Then an hour later I received another call, it was like she was a different girl, baby out from under lamp and things were looking good. I think the blub did her the world of good. We have everything crossed for discharge today, one more test at 9am for jaundice and if the markers are looking good, they’re coming home! Oh, and we may have a name, I will let you know as soon as it’s confirmed. Clue: it has royal connections. ;) Prize for guessing correctly. ( That’s a blatant lie)! Thanks for all your well wishes and reassurances, they’ve kept me going. Have a great day. :)

Morning all. 5.8 for me and a kilo down so 93.1kg after being flat for a little while.

Off to the GP for bloods for the old HbA1C and booking the diabetes review. Hoping the nurse won’t want to weigh me today and I’ll have enough time to get into the 80s before that happens.

Oh and I see to have miracle flowers. Bought a bunch from Waitrose three weeks ago tomorrow and they’re still going strong. Ok so I’ve removed some of the foliage and now only have the blooms but there’s no sign of them going over. I’m seriously impressed!

Not working today and hoping that the rain does ease off so that I can go on a lovely Thames side walk a little later.

I was doing so well with the HS. But now...oh well, 4.9 for me this morning. That's ok.

Just updated my App to include cholesterol analysis because my cholesterol was reported as slightly high. I now can clearly see where my diet has been poor in regard to cholesterol. I will try to sort that out going forwards. It will be interesting to see if I succeed when they retest in September.

The App stuff is fascinating. It illuminates so much that seems hidden.

I have been doing this one update since 4am. I must be very 'sad' because I enjoy it so much, but especially enjoy the challenge of problem solving that it presents.

Breakfast time now.... 10 eggs, a side of beef, 3pts of full fat milk, 1Kg cheese, er, not!!

Which app do you use?
And how are things this morning in general?

Hi, its an App I have designed and written myself in Excel VBA.

Things are not too bad this morning but my wife was not so good again yesterday. Very suspicious of me asking her how she felt when she had just got up. Her suspicions flavoured her whole day. Sad. I have to be very careful what I say. Still, today is another day and I proclaim it will be a good day!!!
